Now THIS Is A Sweet Potato Pie Recipe!

Remember that foolishness I showed you all a few weeks ago? It seems like Cooking Panda heard what everyone and their grandmother has been saying:  SWEET POTATO PIE DOES NOT HAVE PARMESAN CHEESE! And boy did they listen.  So much so that they actually consulted the nice ladies at Southern Girl Desserts for help. While... Read more »

Will Sweet Potato Pie Bring Our Country Together?

If you’re a pie lover consider this your trigger warning for the foolishness you’re about to see. My reaction: I’ve been looking at this fuckery for the past three days and still can’t make heads or tails out of it.  That is a “recipe” for Sweet Potato Pie that contains Parmesan cheese. PARMESAN CHEESE! Foolishness. ... Read more »

I Can't Get A Second Chance But You Can Learn From My Experiences

Last week I was fortunate enough to celebrate another birthday. Now that I am a woman of a certain age in her late 40’s I tend to take stock of where I am, where I’m going in life and where I want to be. Most people would like a second bite at the apple.  To... Read more »

American History: Slavery Revision Edition

This past week the First Lady addressed the Democratic National Convention and broke the news that slaves had built the White House. Some historians and/or pundits countered that “others” also had a hand in building the White House. Which is a true statement. Yet the “others” comprised about 33% percent of the people who built...

Project Motivation

After a much needed break, I realized that I have several unfinished home projects. And now they’re piled up and sitting all over the house. Or in the case of my non painted walls and (still) non organized second bedroom, sitting there patiently waiting to be completed. In all fairness, the stress of substitute teaching... Read more »

Ten Signs That Your Neighbors Might Be Shady

I’m a huge fan of avoiding drama. Especially where I live. That means I take a keen interest in who moves in the neighborhood—as any concerned resident should.  These days questionable neighbors may mean the difference between relative peace and quiet or your door being mistakenly kicked in by the police (if you’re lucky). Unfortunately,... Read more »

I Wasn't Let Into A Bar, But I'm Using It As A Teachable Moment

Like most of my stories, things start out with the most transparent of motivations. It was Sunday and all I wanted was to watch the big game with sound outside of my home. I went to one of my regular watering holes but they weren’t going to have the game with sound.  Then I schlepped... Read more »

Super Bowl Shame: I Just Took Down My Christmas Tree

This was my living room less than 24 hours ago. Yup, that’s my Christmas tree. I don’t know how getting the tree out of the house got away from me this year.  Usually, I spend the NFL playoffs taking off the million ornaments followed by millions of lights. Admittedly, I do keep my tree up... Read more »

#SavetheShrine: Why Is The Archdiocese In Such A Hurry To Tear Down A Historic Woodlawn Church

Look at this masterpiece.  It is the Shrine of Christ the King. Even with no roof and severe fire damage, she is still an impressive structure. I live so close to the Shrine that when she burned in October, I was close enough to see the smoke from my balcony. When I saw the live... Read more »
