I love cooking. I love feeding people. I love to make people close their eyes and moan when they eat food that I've prepared. I love to give people foodgasms - and I like to have them myself. Today marks a milestone for me. We had a... Read more

We have a center island that has a raised ledge on one side - too high to use as a countertop, and 'dead space' beneath it. However, I do kind of like it, since it faces into the family room, so it kind of hides my prep area from view. I ... Read more

Yesterday I was out running errands. I had something to return to Walgreen's, so I used the GPS to find the nearest one. The GPS directed me to a part of Beaverton I hadn't been to before - we moved here two years ago this month. I passed... Read more
