Potluck Safe Salad – Greek Market Salad (with recipe)

It’s summer and the weather has turned warm – and sometimes hot – and this is the season when a young (or old) foodie’s fancy turns to the potluck cookout. We haven’t received a lot of invitations to cookouts so far this year but we do have a few...

Sunday Morning Coffee Musings, 7/15/18 – Vacation

Firstly, this is a Sunday Afternoon Coffee Musing, as I slept in for a change and wasn’t even awake until almost 10 a.m. This is unusual for me, the woman who gets up at 6 a.m. regardless of the day. I’m just hardwired that way. When I do sleep...

Forever is a Very Long Time

Recently I had a conversation with a co-worker about weight loss. I’ve been following a ketogenic diet, and I have lost a substantial amount of weight in a relatively short period of time. I’m doing this safely, I’m not missing any meals and my Doctor is aware of this...

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...

Strawberry Shortcake with cream on top

First, a link to a recipe for an amazing Low-Carb Strawberry Lemon Shortcake.  I just made this for dessert tonight, and neither my husband nor I were disappointed. Most people who know me will answer if asked, that my favorite dessert of all time is Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Frosting....

Sunday Morning Coffee Musings, 7/1/18

Good Gravy, it’s HOT here today! It’s a funny thing about coffee. We love hot coffee, we love iced coffee.  Let coffee get room temperature, and it’s the most disgusting thing we’ve ever had the misfortune to drink! It’s 11 a.m., it’s already 87 degrees out in Massachusetts, and...

Sunday Morning Coffee Musings 6/24/18

It’s almost 9:30 today. I was up at a little before 7, taking the morning medications and waiting the hour it requires until I can have a coffee or anything other than water. It seems to take forever on the weekends, waiting for that hour until I can have...

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...
