Welcome home Peter, Kristen, Erin, and Emily!! My cousin Peter and his wife Kristen had twin baby girls – Erin and Emily – quite a bit before their due date. It has been a wild, emotional, exhausting, terrifying, exhilarating roller coaster ride for the last five months, through three hospitals, through hours and hours of…

Taco, taco! (If you’ve seen the Jennifer Lopez/Hennifer Hlopez episode of South Park, then those two words are funny; if not, it’s just taco, taco! And that’s cool too…) First off, I picked up fish tacos at Baja Sol on my way to Suz’s for lunch. Guacamole, fresh crispy chips, seasoned rice. Mmmm… Then I…

Happy Birthday Mommy Stacey! Ah, my stunningly beautiful baby sister, who has clearly never been happier in her whole entire life than she is being a mommy to Cooper. Look at her! She had a baby less than two months ago! Not fair… Except that she is born to be a mommy. When Cooper gets…

Today beheld Cooper, that dreamy little shrimp, oh, and fried shrimp too, mmm, mmm, good. Bowen, Stace, and Coop came over to celebrate Stacey’s pre-birthday and Bowen’s graduation. Bowen doesn’t eat meat (but does eat fish), and it’s a gorgeous day and I knew we could hang by the pool, so I thought, hmmmm, something…

Warm cherry cake and rhubarb bars! Got the recipes from gold-metal baker Suz – thank you, honey! (Recipes posted in comments, below…) Ohhhhhhhh, my shoulder/neck, ouch. Twitching with spasms. I did a real job on it, lovely. Do not drive up on my right side, you are most definitely in a blind spot… I did…

Back to the fried walleye and warm pasta salad. Had it for lunch today, with time to snap a quick pic. Yum. (Recipes posted in comments, below.) So for hijinxing with my minxes last night we had our first call-in guest, from NYC, a comedienne, talk-show host, and advice guru named Robynne Kaamil. She rocks!!!…

Fried walleye tonight, so damn good. Don’t have time to say much more than that, it’s late, late, late already. What with picture person, groceries, a quick walk, picking up Nathan at school, a trip to the Humane Society to drop off donations, back here to make dinner (walleye!), and then over to Suz’s for…

Rain, rain went away! Woo hoo! At least for today. I jumped right on my bike this morning to finally take the bike ride I’d been itching to take for days. Fabulous. Then I did my picture person prep outside, yeah, it was pretty rough out there, 75 and sunny. Perhaps I dozed for a…

Jacques Pepin and the Baseball Moms on the menu tonight. Baseball Moms first, actually, so a beer and girlie laughs as an appetizer of sorts. Then home to whip up Jacques’ instant beef tenderloin stew, which I’ve meant to make for quite awhile and am just now getting around to. Lovely, simple recipe. Saute/steam the…

All quiet on the Midwestern-front today. Tired people in this house. John briefly napped, I seriously napped, it was awesome. We had a nice little brunch, broiled crab salad sandwiches. We had ours sans egg but they’re mighty tasty with an over-easy egg on top, I must say. (Recipe posted in comments, below.) Add a…
