Cooking Failures?


"This is my invariable advice to people: Learn how to cook, try new recipes, learn from your mistakes, be fearless, and above all have fun."  -  Julia Child


Have you ever had a  colossal failure in the kitchen?  I have had many...but two come to mind first.

When I was a teenager, my mom asked if I could make meatloaf for dinner.  Sure.  The recipe called for one cup of chicken bouillon.  I had no idea what that was.  I looked in the pantry and found a little glass jar that said chicken bouillon cubes.

My Word For 2016



Choosing a 'word for the year' is similar to a New Year's resolution, but way better.  A word for the year points me in the right direction.  It is a little whisper of guidance during times I am stuck and wonder what to do next...oh, I will  (insert my word).

There is also no failure with a word for the year.  If I forget, I try to remember next time...it is always ok to begin again.
