About This Blog

After much thought and much more prodding from my husband and  sons, I am beginning my blog. They assure me there are many out there who will be interested in what I have to offer, so here goes. 

The focus will be on what has been my passion for as many years as I can remember…. feeding people.  It will cover entertaining ideas, with an emphasis on cooking and baking.  I’ll also include ideas for gardening, interior design, and decorating with special attention to the seasons and holidays…all the things that through the years of raising our family have helped to transform our HOUSE, be it a furnished apartment in Tallahassee, Florida,  a second floor walk-up in a six flat building in Chicago, a three bedroom house in the Chicago burbs, or our current house in the DC area, into a HOME.

I wrote my first entry last January when I intended to begin this blog, but didn’t.  For whatever reasons…procrastination, nervousness about being a “blogger”, or lack of confidence in my abilities …I have successfully overcome them and have decided to seize the day!  So here goes, and I hope you’ll have as much fun reading it as I think I will writing it.
