Once upon a time, the clouds parted, and Mama was able to open her weary and sleepy eyes. She sipped enough coffee down to make her sane before the herd of children woke up from their slumber and there also happened to be some stale bread in the kitchen. Stars aligned. The Lord showed mercy. And
I promised on Facebook I would bring you a homemade chorizo recipe, did I not? Surely, I can’t be the only one out there with a freezer of pork shoulders, a meat grinder, and a mission to eat chorizo. Right? Hello? Anyone? Ah yes, I see at least one of you in the back raising
Sometimes I like to pretend like I have my life together. And there’s homemade pumpkin puree involved. I ignore the stacks of dishes with crusty food, the smell laundry piled in front of the washing machine, the kids with sticky bits of honey in between their fingers, and the compost sitting in front of my

Trust me, I’ve made plenty of those. But not these biscuits, oh no.
I may be un-American for saying this, but I really don’t love cinnamon rolls that are covered in goopy frosting. I know, I know – quick shooting me those dirty looks. It’s just one of those things I don’t prefer. Now that doesn’t keep me from enjoying one on occasion, but if I’m making them
Sometimes, many times actually, my day involves chocolate. Be it a little nibble of a dark chocolate bar or a small pinch of chocolate chips, I just like to have a wee bit to savor. Call it a weakness. Call it an addiction. But whatever it is, I like it that way. And
