One More Reason the 80s Rocked (Or: Chocolate Covered Angst)

April 23, 2017

This isn’t really a recipe post as much as an excuse for me to make chocolate covered strawberries. Growing up in the 80s, chocolate strawberries were the ultimate “fancy food”. My mom, who is a great cook, mastered these at home before they had gone mainstream. She could perfectly temper chocolate, enrobing the first strawberries […]

Whiskey Basin 88k (or 55 miles for those of us who weren’t taught the metric system)

April 11, 2017

My training for this upcoming 6 day race has been a little all over the place. I mean, how exactly does one train for such a thing? Run, right? Duh. But we all know that just putting in miles can get a little stale. So, this past weekend I went up to Prescott (pronounced Press […]

I’m Sure There is Medication For This (6 Days at the Fair)

March 10, 2017

One of my favorite things to do at seven years old was round-off flip flops in the back yard. Hours were chewed up whole in the run, run, run, hands hitting the ground, then legs, then my whole body vaulting backwards. Bounce up. Run back to the start. Repeat. I rarely (if ever) added new […]

Yes, I’m Still Making Soup (but I am running again – tantrum’s over)

February 17, 2017

It’s one of those rare days in the desert – overcast, cold, damp. But because it is so rare, it feels wonderful instead of depressing, like I think it would be if you lived somewhere dark and damp most of the year. Or maybe not. What do I know? Maybe suffering under a spotlight sun […]

Double, Double, Toil and Trouble (Corn Cheddar Chowder)

December 9, 2016

It has finally gotten cold in the desert, so I must admit, I’m spending more time running indoors. Like 15 of my 20 per day miles, indoors. Like I’m having to take Vitamin D supplements in one of the sunniest places in the country, indoors. Yes, I am a big fat baby. But since I’m […]

When Mom and Dad Give You Lemons From a Tree Named Fred (Classic Lemon Squares)

December 7, 2016

This is a weird time of year for baking. I seem to be simultaneously up to my eyeballs in baked goods while constantly craving something I don’t have. Maybe it’s because everywhere I look there are recipes for gingerbread, spice cake, and rum balls, but my body is screaming (okay, probably just humming) for the […]

Is There a Diamond Bauble For, “I Accidentally Called You Fat?”

December 1, 2016

Weird. With all this “nontraining” running I’m doing, I’ve lost weight. I’ve been kind of bragging/lamenting/bragging to Tim about it for a couple of weeks and he’s chosen to (mostly) ignore me. He knows this is a minefield. If he agrees/notices/comments, he’s in for the inevitable firestorm of: SO YOU THOUGHT I WAS HEAVY BEFORE? […]

I’m So Zen, I’m Scary

November 30, 2016

Loops, how I love thee. Yes, I wrote that. And I mean it, so stop reading now if you were expecting something deeper. Or at least interesting. I’ve been thinking a lot about loops lately. Mostly because they are the only kind of running I feel like doing right now. The only kind of running […]

You’ll Be Happy to Know All of My Relatives Are Still Alive

November 28, 2016

So many kind e-mails, comments, Tweets and texts about my last post. To all of you: thank you. I love you for caring and taking the time to read, skim, or open and immediately close this blog in utter exasperation. I really just write this stuff down because I have too much time on my […]

Why I Quit Running (Okay, that’s not entirely true, but don’t tell my body)

November 2, 2016

So I haven’t quit running. I’ve just quit RUNNING. For now. I’m tired. Bone-deep tired. Twenty to forty miles a day tired. As I’ve talked about on many, many, many (I know) occasions (one of the problems with the blog format – you have to “refresh” regularly in case a reader shows up here by […]
