Thanks for stopping by...

I love sharing recipes, thoughts, sewing projects, and notes about the chaos of living a life full of laughter. You will find lots of recipes, mostly vegan. And a little bit of philosophy, I can't help myself, I am a philosophy teacher at heart. Basically, my blog is just about as chaotic as my life, and I like it that way!


This meal comes together quickly and is absolutely delicious. Choose your mushrooms according to taste, I like a medley of oyster, shitake, cremini, and button. I promise that you will love the wonderful richness and depth of flavor that this recipe delivers. 

Live, Laugh, Love

Sew a Circle Skirt

I love sewing for my granddaughter...It is just so rewarding to see her twirl and spin when she puts on a new outfit that I made! I have been making circle skirts for her since she was about two, so I have a lot of leftover fabric. 

Quotes I love...

"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit."


"One is not born, but rather becomes, a woman."
