Versatile Marinated Vegetables

February 29, 2012

Since I am blogging about marinated peppers, thought I would share a old painting I did several years ago.  You might recognize it as my Tuesday’s Tasty Tidbit’s linky party button.  Been having people ask about my paintings, so….there you go. One of my favorite things to eat with chips is a chunky marinated vegetable.  [...]

Dreaming of a White Winter But Accepting the Coming of Spring

February 26, 2012

I am normally snapping pictures right and left when I go on vacation but I kept forgetting when I went to the mountains (Angel Fire, NM) this trip with some dear friends. I got one photo of the skiers. I did take a bunch on the way home. We had a beautiful snow on us [...]

A Painting….On the Road to Questa

February 16, 2012

I seem to have painter’s block.  This is the last one I completed and it has been a year.  I had so many issues with this one that I guess I have been feeling that I didn’t know what I was doing.  New Mexico is so beautiful and I have snapped hundreds of photos….ready to [...]

Moist Pina Colada Cake and Remembering an Old Friend

February 13, 2012

I asked my hubby what cake he wanted for his birthday party. Ok, I made him a Mango Pie for his actual birthday but that was before his party. He told me he wanted a Kathie Jackson Pina Colada Cake. She is an old friend from the days of farming and he has never forgotten [...]
