Sometimes you don’t realize your own strength until you come face to face with your greatest weakness.
– Susan Gale
Wow! It seems insane that it’s been so long since I posted, and I’ve not much to say other than, “really, more than a whole week since the last post?”. Yeah, that sounds lame I know. And trust me it is! I’ve shared before that things get busy, and it’s a wonder we get what we get done in a day, but the truth is, no matter how busy, everything can get done if we really want it to. It just depends on what we actually really want. I’ve had a few posts & photos locked and loaded for over a week and just ready to be written, but, I just couldn’t do it. I could go on about all the things that have been happening, but the truth is just this: I’m going through some pretty major (and crazy exciting) stuff. In fact, it seems folks all around me are too and I am not the only one these days who is being called on to do some serious work to find out just what we really want out of life. It could just be me and the folks I know, but is anyone out there experiencing the excitement and pressures of growth and expansion? Continue reading →
If everyone demanded peace instead of another television set, then there’d be peace.

When it comes to tofu, there is one thing my siblings and I had a lot of growing up, and that was my mom & dad’s famous tamari fried tofu in the ever-loved and very well used cast iron fry pan that got used I think more frequently than tooth brushes in our household. This is not to say that we weren’t good teeth brushers (we were), but with both parents home for the bulk of our childhood years, came the much added bonus of enjoying home cooking an awful lot.

Logic will get you from A to Z; imagination will get you everywhere.

As I sit here and write this today it is surely almost impossible to believe that this year is quickly and surely coming almost to a close. Here I am, on the morning of yet another Halloween, and while I’m not a huge Halloween fan (never have been), I can’t help but look back fondly at all the years of costumes and pumpkin carving that has flown by just way, way, way too quickly.

The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong at the broken places.

One of the most challenging aspects of creating food is often simply this: finding good inspiration. Regardless of your cooking skill, or how you eat, I’ve had countless discussions with folks who all agree that finding inspiration, or just coming up with the very idea of what to make can be the biggest challenge when attempting good, sensible meal preparation in the home.

They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.
― Andy Warhol
Change. It’s a wonderful thing. As the seasons change, so do we, and one can never expect that things will remain the same, not ever, and why would we? There are so many wonderful things to do and experience! Sometimes it’s all about the little things, like that water you never drink in the morning? These are the things YOU can do, right now. Just do it. Just drink it (those of you who don’t drink enough water, that’s for you). Change can be as simple as changing your phone screen saver (I’m working on a good one) to a fresh perspective, or running a slightly different route than the one you’ve practically worn your predictable footprints into.
