Heart Full of Hope
- February 17
- I've never played by the rules. I was absent the day they handed those out. I believe in being kind, playing fair, laughing often, not judging others and drinking red wine. And I always kiss my Sweetie goodnight. It may lead to other fun stuff.
Life is short! Break the rules! Forgive quickly! Kiss slowly!
Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably...
And never regret anything that made you smile.
Always remember that stressed spelled backwards is desserts.
Part of the secret of a success in life is to eat what you like and let the food fight it out inside.
~ Mark Twain

Before my first husband, Bob, would marry me he exclaimed that if we had a son his name would have to be Jack. His family tradition was to name the first son after the Grandfather. I wasn't excited about the name, but agreed because I thought I could… Read full post »
I'm sure that many of you have read this before, but I think it bears repeating!
When things in your life seem almost
too much to handle, when 24 hours in a day are not enough, remember
the mayonnaise jar and the 2 Beers.

Last night I had a profound dream. I was wearing my wedding ring, something I hadn't done for quite a while because my husband of twenty eight years passed away almost six years ago. For some inexplicable reason, I had to keep holding on to the ring, even… Read full post »
When I was newly wed many years ago, my first husband and I would frequently buy Marie Callender's pies. One of our favorites was the cheesecake, which we paired with a fruit pie and enjoyed the best of both worlds. While eating our pie one day my husband… Read full post »
The other day a friend of mine expressed excitement about buying a Kindle. ”Imagine not having to turn the pages of a book anymore!” she exclaimed. She evidently caught the bewildered look on my face, and asked if I had a problem with that. “Well, I can't imagine… Read full post »
First of all I want you to know that I haven't tried either of these recipes, but they sound so good I know I'll be making them soon. I did tweak both of these because I think changes were needed to make them even better than the original recipes.

The movie, "Somewhere In Time," is one of my favorite movies. There are two pieces of music that play throughout the movie and I love them so much that Daniel and I hired a harpist for our wedding to play during and after the ceremony.
The first is Rhapsody on a… Read full post »
I would imagine that for most women, buying a new pair of shoes could be compared with a man obtaining a new gizmo for his TV. But back when I was a very little girl, boys and girls both liked going to the shoe store. Make that loved going to… Read full post »

Let us consider the fundamental guiding principles for the United States of America -- freedom, equal opportunity, compassion, and security.
Then let us consider how those principle… Read full post »
After Walt's post from last week I decided that it should not matter whether or not “Foodie Tuesday” gets any recognition from the Editors. It doesn't seem to keep the poets back, so why should it hold back the cooks from expressing themselves and sharing their recipes with others. And on… Read full post »
A few weeks ago I took one of my dogs to the vet for a check-up. Before arriving there, I passed the usual one or two people standing beside the freeway off-ramp, with small cardboard signs announcing their hunger or homelessness. Most of the time I can hardly read what… Read full post »
I used to have a very big chocaholic tooth. In fact my tooth was so large that nary a day went by that I did not partake in at least one little bite of this sensuous delight. Over the years this obsession has tapered, or… Read full post »
A few weeks ago a friend of mine asked me to help her prepare for a dinner party for about twenty people. Naturally I said I would. We entertain quite a bit and thought this could be a lot of fun and really help me to use my talents and… Read full post »
I did not write this article. It was written by Nikki Alexander who resides in California and writes for OpEd News. Nikki has expressed the desire to spread the word about Rocky Anderson and is working tirelessly with a group of Californians to achieve this goal. Nikki asked me to post… Read full post »
A few days ago I stopped at a red light and found myself looking in the direction of the car next to me. The driver was a woman with long blond hair, her head hung over the steering wheel. At first I thought perhaps she was hurt, possibly a heart… Read full post »
Taking care of your home is not unlike taking care of the country you live in. Both are based on principles we were presumably taught at a very young age. I am reminded of the book by Robert Fulghum, “All I Really Need to Know I Learned in… Read full post »
One thing is for sure. Salt Lake City loves Christmas. I'd never seen so many lights during the holidays until I moved here. It would be difficult to assess how many lights are used every year, but there must be millions. You can see people in cherry pickers as early as… Read full post »
These cookies have been in my family for several generations. My Great Grandparents brought this recipe with them when they emigrated from Sicily to Canada, sometime in the mid 1800's. It has most likely been revised throughout the years, because back in those days they rarely used measurement… Read full post »
It starts in early November, sometimes October or even sooner. The days grow gloomy, clocks get set back, darkness comes sooner. People get grumpy or depressed and can't figure out why. Then reality hits, like a cold winter blizzard. The holidays are coming! And it seems they do so sooner… Read full post »
I'm not going to go into a long spiel about the origins of sweet potatoes or yams. Nor am I going to talk about sage. You either like this vegetable and herb, or you don't. This is a recipe I found that I will be making for Thanksgiving because I think… Read full post »
So this is one of those recipes that makes you think,"How could this taste good?" But, for some reason you decide to try them anyway. I'm here to say that you will happy you did. In fact you will wish you made more, because they will vanish before your eyes. When… Read full post »
On Thursday Nov. 3rd my family and I attended a most heartening event. The Mayor of Salt Lake City proclaimed Nov. 3, 2011, to be Kim Peek Day. Kim Peek is the man who inspired the screenwriter, Barry Morrow, to write an Oscar winning movie, Rain Man.
