Pecan Chocolate Chip Brownies

 Welcome back to my tiny kitchen. The weather has been blah here in Carson City NV. Brownies seemed like the perfect solution yesterday. I love baking brownies, they are really hard to mess up. You don’t have to worry about them rising, or being over done. Everyone likes a little bit of chewy brownie edge….

Midnight in Paris

  ” But Paris After Midnight is Magic.”    Walking around Paris at night is a dream. We arrived late afternoon and started walking the city. It was to late to go into any of the attractions, but somehow it worked out in our favor. Seeing Notre Dame and the Eiffel Tower all lit up…

Catacombes de Paris

  Paris is a beautiful city. Full of bright colors, flowers architecture and street vendors. It’s easy to forget a cities dark history with modern day beauty all around. Thats why it was so crazy seeing the Catacombs. Down 120 meters, below the sewer, below the Metro, and below the city water table, lies the…

Guinness Brewery, Dublin

Guinness Brewery is like Willie Wonka Factory for beer loving adults. The beer really does taste different there, it’s the freshest Guinness you will ever taste! The tour they created was really neat. They did a great job explaining the brewing process, where they get their ingredients, how much beer they produce and how they…

Lake Winnemucca& Round Top Lake

Winter Wonderland

Sugar Cookies!

I loved making sugar cookies as a kid. I am not a patient person, so my cookies were never pretty. I was always the first one done, with the ugliest frosting job. The goal for me was to get done, so I could eat it. Not much has changed. These cookies were great for my…

Sparks Lake, Bend Oregon

This is our day out at Sparks Lake. It’s about 25miles from Bend, and its magical. We have been in Bend for a little longer than a month, and I love it here. It has been a huge but welcome change after living in Virginia for a year. Don’t get me wrong, Virginia was great,…

Banana Chocolate Chip Cake

Once again, I didn’t eat the bananas I bought, in their healthy form.  I hate throwing food away, so why not make cake? This banana cake turned out great! Super soft, and the chocolate chips and cream cheese frosting bring it to a new level. I love no fuss cooking, and this cake falls into that…

Devils Lake, Bend OR
