I was a Brownie

I had a few special privileges when I was growing up. Being in a Brownie pack was one. That sounds strange when I think of a brownie, now, as a sweet and gooey baked desert. Anyway, I obviously wasn’t that kind of brownie. I don’t think I had a uniform right off, so I would […]

Getting to the Heart

Happy Valentine’s Day. This is the closest subject as I can think of - that has to do with hearts and such. We eat them. I can barely believe it myself. Heart is worse than a tongue and better by far than liver (in my biased opinion). Hubby likes it stuffed (the good part is the stuffing of […]

A Disgusting Death

A really sick thing happened today. Warning: this is graphic. View only at risk to your digestive system. I think I should have no problem with axing a chicken’s head off at the neck. There seems to be a natural division there between the body and the brain to begin with. Let me explain. I went to […]

Salmonella – lets get this straight

I have been educating myself again about Salmonella since I raise chickens and collect their eggs. I have never suffered from it, but one can never be too careful as the world constantly requires more vigilance. Salmonella comes from or is in the guts of an infected animal. Even a person can have it. It causes diarrhea. […]

French Vanilla Custard Pudding

…or English. I can name it anything I want when I create the recipe, heheh. The hardest part was guessing what it was that I put in it, because I don’t always measure you see.  To 1/2 cup cornstarch add 1/2 c. sugar or less (honey is ok but is hard to work into the […]
