MLB! Baseball is Starting! So Pretzel or Hot Dog?

31 Mar

It’s Spring!  Major League Baseball Opening Day!  That’s right!  While everyone is wondering whether the rumors are true of trades, ticket sales, uniforms styles….I’ll be thinking about what to wear to be dressed for the occasion and the food!  Yes the food!

Quiet as it is kept, only if there some good eats – I will be able to endure an overtime!  It’s the well done hot dog for me (two) with kraut, relish and mustard; fries – all with a nice cold beer!

There are fancy items now in the food arenas, actually gourmet dining.   But I must have my old standby – the hot dog. How about you?

Happy Opening Day!  The ultimate best for the season!  Woo Hoo!

15 Mar


Saint Patrick’s Day or the Feast of Saint Patrick (“the Day of the Festival of Patrick”) is a cultural and religious holiday celebrated annually on 17 March, the death date of patron saint of Ireland, Saint Patrick (c. AD 385–461).  From the parades, the dancing, the music, the eating and the drinking – it’s a fun time had by all ages!  Everyone enjoy!

Carrot Cake Recipe Needed?

2 Mar

It has been stated that a recipe is not a good recipe until you have tried it out!

Well, the latest attempt – showed something was missing!  I can’t put my finger on it!

I’d followed it line by line, measure by measure…..and it did not taste good at all.  I’m disappointed, in my mind I was going to have a slice to go right with my cup of coffee!  A bust!

Now, I could buy a box cake, but it just seems not the right thing to do!  If you have a recipe, tried, tasted and true!   Please, please, please send me one, I would like to do another attempt at one of my favorites!  🙂

You can either e-mail me the recipe  ( or place it right in the comment box below!  And let me know where the recipe originated from, it’s backstory….it’s always good to hear the stories surrounding a good recipe!  🙂
