About Me

My photo


Change. I've learned to embrace it, ride it out til the end. Sometimes I'm kicking and screaming, other times weeping with my eyes clinched tight. Once in awhile I ride like a dog in a car, head out the window snorting what life has to offer. Mother to young adult children, a marriage of thirty years, and a desert to mountain to valley waltz with God have shaped me into someone I never imagined I'd be. Life is short and I want to live it. Tears, sighs, laughter and change. Every morsel granted to me. Scrambled, shaken or stirred.

Scraps and Snippets ~ Caramel Supreme Fudge Silk Pie ~Vegan MoFo #25

I'm kind of sad. The MoFo is oofo (over) for the year. But I'm also pretty stoked. I conquered my list. It was a challenge for sure and except for a few mistakes and do-overs I'm pleased with what I got done. I'm also pretty dang excited to have a whole lot of recipes to have at my fingertips when I want to prepare something that omnivores and Vegans alike will love. I hope you found some you'd like to try as well.
