Is it just me? Or, does it seem people feel more comfortable being mean and snarky than they used to be? This "wise words" post is a reminder lesson in how to be gracious and thoughtful.

I just added this vintage recipe to my blog: Shepherd's Pie. It is easy to make, toss in the oven, toss in the freezer, and reheat later, this vintage recipe for Shepherd's Pie uses "planned overs" from your roast.

I've started a 1950s online book club! Our first book is "Something from the Oven" where we will learn how the American diet came to be after World War II

I love buying whole hams when they are on sale. This post introduces my meal planning series on "Planned Over Freezer Cooking™" and gives a crazy easy ham and bean soup recipe that keeps in the freezer for fuss free dinners.

It seems to me that we've slipped into mediocrity as a culture. This blog post talks about how we can take a stand in favor of beauty and excellence.

I’m going to talk “friend to friend” with you right now.  Because, our expectations for the holiday season have gotten wayyyyy out of control.  We have this crazy notion that everything has to be Pinterest Perfect in order for the holidays to be successful.

Well, trying to have a Pinterest Perfect holiday season is just too stressful.  And it will never happen.  But we can have a perfect–with a lower case “p”-peaceful holiday season if we let go of our unrealistic expectations.  In this blog post, we’re going to get real about what the essence of the holidays means for you.

New blog post:
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank our military veterans.  You see, no matter where we fall on the continuum regarding the outcome of the election, every veteran I know has told me that they served our country to secure our rights—including our right to vote for the candidate we support and to disagree with our fellow citizens without the fear of being thrown into jail as a political prisoner.

I voted via early voting. Have you voted, yet? If not, please do. Your vote matters. Voting is you way of making sure your voice is heard not just for president but also for congressional, state, and local representation. This blog post features a film made in 1945 by the War Department to help people in other countries understand our election system. It will make you misty-eyed and grateful of your ability to have your voice heard.

Do you have prominent hips? While a square hipline isn't problematic in and of itself, there are ways to make your figure appear more visually balanced.
