It seems that the older I get, the more I have to learn.  Twenty years ago, when I was seventeen, I thought I knew everything.  Haha!  Silly younger version of myself.  With age and experience has come acceptance of the glaringly obvious- I hardly know anything at all!!!!!  Er, alright, I can give myself some […]

Just before Easter this year, I visited Decatur’s wonderful Farmers Market on a gorgeous Saturday morning.  Oddly enough, I was taking photos of the beautiful vegetables, as I typically do, while the talented Ms. Inga Finch was snapping professional shots of me!  ‘Twas quite the strange sensation.  But, I grew more and more comfortable with […]

Here’s a real simple recipe that I made to go along with a Grilled Mexican Spiced Pork Tenderloin.  It took very little time to put together and it was quite […]
