This morning’s conversation when Joshua woke up: J: “Mom, think about breakfast.” Me: “Sweetheart, I can’t even put two sentences together, much less think about anything. Where’s my coffee.” J: “Mom, you think about breakfast and I’ll watch a little bit of cartoons.” * * * * * * * * There is a *slight* […]

And it is covered with a thick, rich hollandaise sauce that has been created in the microwave in two minutes flat. Behold: microwave liquid gold. Print […]
I am a SUCKER for a good tortilla soup with all the fixin’s. It is right up there with a homemade chicken soup in my book. The creaminess of the avocado combined with the acid of the tomatoes and richness of the beans. If you want to put this over the top, grill your corn […]
