Root Beer Floats for Dinner

It’s still 90 degrees and it’s 11 p.m. in Massachusetts. This is wrong on so many levels. When I first met my husband Eric, he introduced me to a marvelous piece of his family’s history, a tradition his mother started when he was little. If it was too hot...

Sunday Morning Coffee Musings, June 17th: Repairs

We went on vacation, and then we recovered from vacation, and then we started to work on the RV. Eric has a philosophy about working on the RV. “Everything works perfectly, except for this”, and “this” is whatever project he is currently working on. He told me this is...

Sassy Cook goes on the road!

Oh dear God, what have we done? We have always wanted an RV. Well, we wanted a camper, and my husband wanted something with a bathroom in it. We purchased a 1995 Dutchmen Duck pop-up camper from a co-worker for $500. It was in good shape, as these things...

Sunday Morning Coffee Musings 5/20/18

Good Morning All! Hey, I’d like to apologize for not being here for a few months. That health thing that happened to me? It took far longer than I realized to get back to “normal” for me. I finally got my thyroid working properly again (sort of) and got...

Random thoughts in the Car #1

First I would like to apologize for not making my normal schedule of posts. I had a little health issue that sucked away my will to sit upright and focus on anything. (TL:DR – I had an infected tooth, the antibiotics did horrible things to my innards) Since this...

Sunday Morning Coffee Musings 2/18/18

Ugh! This week! Hell of a way to point you in a direction. When I was in my late twenties, I was married to my son’s father. I had quit my job to take care of our son, and my husband had gotten laid off from his job shortly...

Sunday Morning Coffee Musings – 2/11/18

All we need is a little patience. I am a good cook and a better baker. I can make puff pastry, cream puffs, eclairs, cannolis – you name it I’ve made it. Souffle? It’s a snap! Tiramisu? Of course! I’m not afraid to try to make anything. Except for...

#TBT Cast away

I went to make funnel cakes last night and wanted to use the smaller cast iron pan I own. It had been hanging on it’s hook for a few months, and we had not used it for quite some time. However, when I turned the pan around, there was...

Side Tracks

I do not have a linear way of thinking. My train of thought is more a hovercar of thought; it moves in all sorts of directions, and it steers like a fish. I have better luck somedays herding cats into straight lines than I do focusing on a task...

Sunday Morning Coffee Musings 2/4/18

To some people, the only thing better than MORE is ALL. I collect cookbooks. It started simply at first, an innocent wish to have more than a Betty Crocker cookbook and also to stop borrowing cookbooks from the library and paying fines for returning them late. I don’t remember...
