We're back!

After a lengthy absence, here we are back at the blog.  In the interim, my son has graduated from college and moved to New York City, we have reconnected with Jeffrey's son (and his girlfriend!), we managed to sell our Knoxville home, and I had a surgery which included a hysterectomy and breast cancer removal and treatment.  During all this, Jeffrey has  managed to find the energy to boost his career, and is now the assistant director at the clinic where he works.  So many changes!

We have been slow to return to cooking, partly because our life is fuller now with the opportunities that a bigger city holds, and partly because there are so many great restaurants in the greater Des Moines metro!

However, things are starting to feel more settled now, so we have a bit more opportunity to share our cooking and recipes with you.  We won't be posting as frequently, but we hope you enjoy what we'll bring to the table.

Cats have *totally* settled in!




  1. Happy to see you're back - and look forward to future posts!

  2. Welcome back. Sounds like a tough year so far but it sounds like things are improving. God bless you and yours.
