What’s Behind the Makeup?

What’s Behind the Makeup?

Makeup. I have always had a love/hate relationship with cosmetics. I absolutely hate putting on makeup – but I love the difference it makes in my appearance and how much better that makes me feel.

Creamy Portabella (Morel) Soup

Creamy Portabella Soup

This wonderful mushroom soup recipe originates from a “Cream of Morel Soup” recipe from Fred Trost’s Fish & Wild Game Classics 1986 Edition. Unfortunately, morels are a little hard to come by.

Acadia National Park - Maine

The ‘Lobster Roll Tour’ (aka ‘Road Trippin’ along the East Coast’) continues where we left off – in front of Stephen King’s house in Bangor, Maine. Not because anything significant happened during the few minutes we were parked in front of his spooky gates. But just because I like to remind myself that it actually happened.
