Attempt #2 at a french macaron cooking class last night. Remember, I tried to go to one in the Spring…had signed up, paid, went to the restaurant where it was being held only to find it dark. Same thing last night. I kid you not. The possibility of a Candid Camera moment was looming large… Continue reading Really?

It was like a mental buffet…little bit of this, little bit of that…ooo, I’d like seconds of that, please! It was a weekend… Continue reading Simply Complex
Yes, I have returned from my Thelma-Minus-Louise adventure, therefore not pulling the last stunt that Thelma and Louise did over that canyon. I also did not shoot out the tires on any 18-wheelers (as previously mentioned) or get a hickey from a young cowboy. My weekend was far milder but just as satisfying. I went… Continue reading Thelma is Back…Laughs and Happiness in YogaLand
