My accomplishments to begin in the New Year are too:

Blog once a week.
Complete my online MOOC's course from MIT
Practice some form of exercise, whether it be Yoga, walking or just shopping jk.
Re-decorate my place for inner peace and clarity
Try not to spend too much money on ebooks...check the library first

Blogging started out as something fun to do until, I started to see it as a chore.  This was my mistake.  I have to learn to enjoy putting mind to paper/screen.  Blogging is away to share myself and writings with my family and friends.  I have a strong personality and it comes across in my writing as well, so please do not read my blogs for any-type of self help advice I am just try to live above water myself.  I do however have great advice on items or things.  I have bought some bad things in my short time on this planet and to help you avoid my stupidity is my lot in life at the moment.  So, my first item on my list is going to be my most challenging..wish me luck....

I have been neglecting my own blog for far too long.  Accomplished a couple things this last year...Grad School has now been completed and I have taken up the violin and it is definitely a learning curve.  Reading has now become a part-time job as of lately.  Reading a new book and spending lots of cash on AMAZON has not been my favorite way to spend money but, I am determined to save.  So, the local SFLibrary has been a saving grace in that I am now borrowing more than buying lately.  Vacation plans for Costa Rica this December and enjoying my family and friends is my goal.  I am determined to blog more and inform you of the many wonderful things and articles on the web that may appeal to you the reader and give you my own two cents worth too!!

Quick and dirty is always better than NOTHING!!!

Oh to be a good cook!!!


I love eating and eating again. I also like to watch shows about food and ways in which they make food look so darn deliscious. I on the other hand am not the best cook by any means, but my food is good to me(enough said). Presentation is an artform, making food look amazing is not a skill I posess. When I read the many cooking blogs you see some beautiful pictured presentations that look so amazing and appetizing. I have numerous vegetarian cook books, drink books, ice cream books and etc. All these darn books and never really posessed a truly artful gift for cooking. I just do not take the time to actually prepare a recipe and present it like I would hope these people do on the many food blogs I read. However, I do love to eat! I enjoy tasting the rich flavors that are parading through my mouth. One thing that is for darn sure, most of the food bloggers are people whom cook for a living, writers and longtime foodaholics. I want to actually spend a vacation learning how to become a good cook, who has mastered the art of presentation. Because,I would love to take my time and prepare a gorgeous meal from start to finish for a group of my friends(to show off). But until then here are a list of good, simple(by whose standards)and wonderful food blogs, that I read.
