    About Me


    Jesus is my Lord, Savior, Brother, Friend.
    He is the sunshine of my life, the joy in my heart and the air that I breathe.
    It's because of His love, grace and mercy that I have hope for the future...
    and I look forward to seeing Him face-to-face.

    I love to "experiment" in cooking, and I'm pretty good at it. But sometimes my family gets a wee bit exasperated at not knowing what's for dinner. Here's a conversation that's been repeated at our house more than a few times...

    DH/Kid: "What are you cooking?"
    Me: "An experiment."
    DH/Kid: "What kind of experiment?"
    Me: "Food."
    DH/Kid: "What kind of food?"
    Me: "Dinner."
    DH/Kid: "But what are we having for dinner?!?"
    Me: "How should I's not done yet!"

    I love reading, writing and cooking it any wonder I love 'Zaar?

    I'm a "Little House on the Prairie" girl at heart.
    If I had my way, I'd own a primarily "off-the-grid", self-sustaining farm in the country.
    I borrowed the following recipe-rating system from ~Bliss~,
    as it seems to fit my style the best of any I've seen,
    and modified it a bit to suit my own preferences:

    5*--I'd serve it to dinner guests
    4*--I'd order this in a restaurant
    3*--Good enough for me, but not for guests
    2*--Finished eating it, but with a struggle
    1*--Unable to finish eating it

    I wanted a place to honor those Zaar chefs that have passed away. Some of them were before my time, but they live on in their recipes and their humor/joy of life. God bless you all, and I hope I one day get the privilege of cooking alongside you in that Great Kitchen in the Sky.

  • Here's a poem I wrote for Gay, Troy and the elves...way back when. It's still pertinent, imo.

    To Zaar
    In the middle of the night, when all is still,
    you've woken up, six hours until
    you have to be at work (to use your skill).
    Where do you go?
    To 'Zaar.

    The kids are yelling, your head is pounding,
    The dog's in the yard, baying, sounding
    like it's being killed...the tension's mounting.
    Where do you go?
    To 'Zaar.

    It's your break at work, you tap your toes,
    You've got time to kill, and everyone knows
    there's nothing to do, time just flows.
    Where do you go?
    To 'Zaar.

    Dinner's cooking, company's coming,
    You're not quite sure if your boss is slumming
    by eating there...your nerves are humming.
    Where do you go?
    To 'Zaar.

    All is quiet, the kids are in bed,
    Your spouse is content, having been fed
    "Such a wonderful dinner!" he happily said.
    Where do you go?
    To 'Zaar.

    To talk, to laugh, to cry, to whinge,
    When your nerves and mind want to unhinge,
    To get a recipe, to chat with a friend...
    Just go to 'Zaar.
    The End.

    The 100 Acre Personality Quiz

    ESFP - "Entertainer". Radiates attractive warmth and optimism. Smooth, witty, charming, clever. Fun to be with. Very generous. 8.5% of the total population.


    Your EQ is 173

    Two possibilities - you've either out "Dr. Phil-ed" Dr. Phil... or you're a dirty liar.

    Seriously though, your whole "Don't Worry, Be Happy" philosophy is really what defines emotional intelligence. You're warm, open, and very optimistic. You know how to act appropriately, even if you don't feel like it. You are a good communicator, and you have little difficulty with personal relationships - even when you're dealing with difficult people. In general, you are successful, capable, together person. You get what you want out of life.

    What's Your EQ (Emotional Intelligence Quotient)?

    Favorite Foods

    I'm having a tough time with this one. Since I love to cook, there are a variety of recipes I enjoy cooking, and that my family and friends enjoy. I suppose some of my most popular ones are homemade pizza (on a french dough crust), curried pork and rice (my mom's recipe...sorry!) and lasagna. I handwrite all my (and my family's) most-favorite recipes in an empty cookbook, so that my children will have "Mom's Cookbook" when I'm gone. I'm doing one for each of the kids, so there won't be any posthumous squabbling over who gets Mom's cookbook! ;o)
