A Tale of Two Turkeys

I mean, I've never been in charge of a turkey before. And since our Thanksgiving is the most intimate ever, I bought the smallest turkey ever. Almost a medium-ish chicken. So, since I've never been in charge of a turkey, I didn't know what color it should be or what it should smell like. I […]

Chicago Hot Dogs and Audio Books

I am both horrified and mortified to tell you this, but it is true. I gained ten pounds in Chicago last week. One week.  Ten pounds.  This is not an exaggeration, and it is not even an estimation. It is exact and precise and appalling. Ten pounds. You see, I was in Chicago. And Chicago […]

Dr. Pepper and Strawberries

"Let's all write about our crossover art form," they said in my writing group. And everyone picked up their pen and began writing furiously about the "other" things they do. I wrote, Crossover Art Form. Do I have one? It seems that all I do is write. Every moment of every day. And since I […]

A Gift for You: My Grandpa's Fudge

My grandparents made fudge so often that they became known for it. They brought it as housewarming gifts.  They served it at parties.  They stockpiled it in the freezer.  When my grandpa was in the hospital, they planned ahead and made fudge for the hospital staff who would care for him. It could technically be […]

Apple Dumplings and Good Intentions

I'm not known for being totally prepared for many things (or any things), so you can imagine my delight when I realized I had all the ingredients on hand to make our family's favorite Apple Dumplings for yesterday's Snow Day. I even had three pounds of fresh apples.  I mean, come on.  This is the stuff […]

Chicken Caesar Salad and the Entitled Bride

I ordered a Chicken Caesar Salad.  There was so much chicken in it, really more than I needed.  I found myself cutting and sorting, making a neat pile of the grilled chicken on one half of the plate. Robb would have loved this salad.  He would have had a lot to say about this salad, […]

"I'm Out." : What I Learned During My 47 Hours Of Lent.

My author friend Becky says, “I’ve never been a Lenty Person, growing up as I did in the south where Southern Baptists breezed over Lent, and barely touched on the Crucifixion to get to the fun of Easter.” While so many are giving up Facebook for Lent, she boldly wrote her status, “Fear not. I […]

Made in 1955

My phone rang a few minutes after 6:00 this morning. Since it is January, it felt like 3:30 am. It was my dad. As soon as my mind registered that it was him, and that today is his birthday - his great big splashy 60th birthday, no less - I felt sure he was calling […]

Christmas Desserts... Revisited.

On Christmas night, after the best Christmas we've had in the last four years, I was up most of the night because Tucker was throwing up.  To his credit, he made it into the bowl every time.  This, my friends, has taken years of training. I was sure the flu had hit us, especially since nearly […]

Happenings over Teriyaki and White Rice

"Do you have a punch card with us?" "I should get one, shouldn't I?" "You definitely should." And the next thing I knew, he was making confetti from holes in a business card as if he were the train engineer on The Polar Express. "Here's one for Monday, and one for Tuesday, and here's one […]

Swirling My Spoon in the Carrots and Peas

They say a book is never finished, only abandoned. True story. I don't think there is ever a point where I would be like, "Click, Save, Boom, Done. Nothing else. This is perfection." It looks more like this: I click save, and I send to my brilliant editor in an email with the subject, "Here it […]

Diet Coke: It's Become a Love Affair

"I'll have a large diet Coke, please." "I'm sorry, ma'am, but we are all out of diet Coke." "No. This cannot be." It's McDonald's, for crying out loud, and there is nowhere else on earth where I can get this drink in exactly this cup with exactly the right science of flavors and carbonation. I […]

Water in my Wineglass

It's after midnight. I just baked a loaf of banana bread, and I do believe these wee small hours might be where I will find my baking self again. I mashed the bananas in my hand mixer, and I'm not sure if that's how you're supposed to mash bananas. I filled the ceramic bread pan […]

Fourteen Miles of Twizzlers

We spent our first afternoon at the pool, which always makes me happy with the sheer exhaustion of it all. The scent of the sunscreen, the bag of snacks that we'll share with all the kids around us. The realization that our beach towels have been lost in the last three seasons, and so today […]

I'm not Distracted - I just need to Settle In.

I am so ready to write.  And it's going to be perfect and compelling and gripping - even just to write it.  I know it.  I just know it.  How could it not be?  I'm away from home, staying at a hotel until I speak at an event, and this is the most perfect writing […]

Fruit, Group Texts, and an Intervention

"It's probably a silly question, but is anybody eating before we meet for dinner tonight? We are eating kind of late, and i am feeding the kids now, so... Trying to decide." "I'm planning to eat when we are together. Snacking on some fruit now." "Fruit? Tricia? Are you the one who said that? Fruit?! […]
