“I am just your ordinary, average, everyday, sane, psycho, supergoddess.” ~~Liz Phair, Extraordinary

Average height, average shoe size, average intelligence (okay, I’d like to think someplace above average ... ), Jill of many trades, mistress of some. Someplace in between stunning and homely, between die-hard American and Brit, between couch potato and athlete, gourmet chef and student surviving on Hot Pockets, California and New York, homebody and world traveler, fish sticks and caviar, teetotaler and bar fly, Pluto (it will always be a planet in my book) and the Sun, the Big Bang and infinity, incoming freshman and college graduate, Girl Scouts and AARP, a professional journalist and "it was a dark and stormy night." Someplace in between ordinary and supergoddess.

Me: dark chocolate, kiwi pear green tea, (decaf) Starbucks, fresh hot homemade bread, black shoes, roses, waves on the lake shore, Christmas, Halloween, Valentine’s Day, cats, corgis, wooden floors, fireplaces, shooting stars, knitting, crochet, sewing, digging in the dirt, spring lilacs, summer picnics, autumn leaves, winter snow, history, writing, cycling, walking, breathing, audiobooks, rocking chairs, garage sales, crows, old linens, holly, ivy, Basia, photos from lost eras, cooking, eating, writing about cooking, my Celtic ancestry, cooking (and eating!) food from countries of my Celtic ancestry, photographing and writing about the food I cook from countries of my Celtic ancestry at this very blog.

You: hopefully enlightened, informed, entertained, amused or at the very least hungry and inspired to cook after stopping by. I hope you find it worth your while, and please
please feel free to leave comments. My blog is your blog! Well, actually it's my blog but I'm happy and humbled that you're here and want to hear (or, rather, read) what you think.
