I wrote this post a few weeks ago but didn't have a picture to put in. I feel a little odd posting this now, seeing as Karina also posted a recipe for Cinnamon Raisin Biscuits today. I apologize for the craptastic picture – I finally decided to suck it up so I can move on… Read More Baby, It’s Cold Outside
As I do every year, I spent the week before Christmas busting my tookas to make goodie bags for those near and dear. This year, the bags included body butter, eucalyptus bath salts, brown sugar body scrub, fudge, angelfood candy, hot cocoa mix and caramel corn. While I was flitting around the kitchen, I had… Read More Would you like some BS with your banana bread?
Once upon a time, there lived It’s Just Not Dinner without Cat Hair, whose owner was a snarky snot who liked to cook. After a long hiatus, Just Not Dinner finally began posting recipes and snarkiness again…only to be placed on another hiatus due to a cluster of family illness: Ruptured appendix that required 3… Read More Long Story Short
Real snippets of conversation late yesterday morning while out running errands with The Man: After pulling into a parking space at the local Dollar General…which is a hop-skip-and-jump from Subway… The Man: Man, a Philly cheese steak sure sounds good. Me: How do you figure you can call it a Philly anything when all you… Read More Only here

Or did I go outside and clean out the flowerbeds and gardens? For a good portion of the morning, the scents won. I reclined on the couch with my… Read More Scents versus the Sun

Oh, for you to have been a fly on the wall during the week I tried to recover the files on my hard drive – photos, ebooks galore, WordPress templates,, years of Just Not Dinner stuff… While trying to figure out Windows… Read More Who needs candy when you’ve got..?
Tired. I have a stack of cookies, cakes, and other wonderful stuff to share. But I’m tired. All the time. I broke down the beginning of January and started popping a daily truckload of vitamins, hoping that would help. Not so much. I’m so tired that I am not sarcastic 24 hours a day; it’s… Read More Cream puffs and profiteroles and eclairs…oh my!
Certainly hope everyone had an enjoyable Thanksgiving with those they love. Me – I am about turkeyed out. It was just The Man and me, so I made a breast and got two legs for him. The carcass fit perfectly into my 6-quart stock pot, so less than an hour after cleaning up the kitchen,… Read More Scones for breakfast
I promise to get to another recipe soon (think cinnamon and scones), but for now… This post was written two weeks ago, but at someone’s request, I held it until tonight. Begin rant. There is a small business I know that has struggled a bit the last few years but held its own until the… Read More Another innocent victim of the economy – rant
You guys sure know how to make a girl feel good. I’ve had eleventy billion emails from various people, wondering where the heck I am, what the heck I’m doing, and most importantly, why I haven’t posted any recipes or snarky stories. Well, I made a trip north to see the parental figures, sibling, sibling-in-law… Read More All right, already
