Sunday morning ponderings . . .
In just a few weeks now I will be turning the sage old age of 61.  That sounds odd to me  . . .  I still feel very young in my mind.  It seems like it wasn't all that long ago I was bemoaning the fact I was turning 30 . . .  and wow, in the blink of an eye,...

Marie, it's been a while since I checked into Google+. My grandmother was born in Copenhagen, Denmark, so she shared a lot of Scandanavian foods with us. I did visit Denmark nearly 50 years ago, and I loved it. We only had three days there, but my girlfriend and I got to Tivoli Gardens, saw the statues of Hans Christian Anderson and the Little Mermaid, and took a bus trip up the Danish Riviera to a castle from which you can see Sweden.

A few of my favourite things . . .
These are a few of my favourite things  . . .   Crisp white cotton bed sheets, preferably with a high thread count.   They are luxurious and a pleasure to slip between at the end of the day, especially if they have been hung up out of doors.  When I worked ...

Streusal Topped Brownies
  I confess to having a certain fondness for Brownies.   Little fudgy bites of chocolate gooey-ness that I have a difficult time to resist.  The Toddster could take them or leave them.  (He's not human!) I don't make them very often as a result of that beca...

Strawberry Buttermilk Pancakes with Honey & Vanilla Butter
We are getting down to the end of our strawberries for this year.   We are only getting about a handful a day now.  Not quite enough to make jam or a pie, but good enough for tasty little treats like these fabulous pancakes that I made for our breakfast. Th...
