Thank you for visiting my little corner of the internet. I hope to share recipes I find (linking back to the recipe originator, of course), recipes I develop, and just plain fun.  Perhaps I will do some reviews - comparing recipes and other things.  There will definitely be pop culture references - some going back quite a few decades.  I hope you will enjoy your explorations here.  (Oh...and there may be videos, and food photography and knitting and sewing as well!)


Read about the various things that interest me...

random thoughts about life

My life is such a mish mosh of things - things I love, things I dislike, things I want to learn, things I wish I never learned; not to mention I have a head full of useless trivia!

desperately seeking good food, entertainment, laughter and peace

dear friends,

thank you for reading my random thoughts and ideas.  i tend to babble on about various things - my favorite topics being food and movies.  i'm a big believer in karma - both good and bad.  i always seek to be truthful, and good.

i grew up on long island with an irish catholic upbringing.  now, on a search for knowledge of my heritage and culture, i've started this blog to share that journey, as well as all the other journeys i have begun.

safe travels and good eating in all you do.
