Chicken Marsala

Chicken Marsala with reduced Marsala wine, infused with porcini mushrooms. - 301/365 I've made a lot of different versions of Chicken Marsala. Most recipes call for only one pan and are relatively fast and easy to make. This recipe calls for a lot of pots/pans but it's the worth effort. Building flavors independently always trumps […]

Save a few meatballs for your pups, Internet! […]

Craving

  Craving. 287/365 I had a serious taco craving, Internet. And being gluten-free didn't slow me down. Tacos in Butter Bib lettuce is just as delicious as the corn stuff. Plus you can eat a lot more! And who doesn't love a lot more tacos? Mr. Wild Dingo gave this two thumbs up. He loves […]

What to Do With Left-Over Cranberry Sauce

Vicious Cycle - 280/365  (Sadly, that's not my wine) Mr. Wild Dingo and I visited relatives in L.A. over Thanksgiving. I brought the cranberry sauce. It got rave reviews and I passed the recipe around (the secret is a lot of ginger). Still, we came home with a bucket of left-over cranberry sauce. So I made another […]

Comfort Soup

Egg Drop in Bone Broth Soup - 252/365 This is my favorite go-to meal for those times when I'm feeling sick or too tired to cook. On the other hand, I do eat it regularly for lunch at least 4 times per week and find it's filling and satisfying. It's a very simple meal to […]

Dutch Baby!

Dutch Baby Pancake - 238/365 Where have I been all my life? Why did I never know about Dutch Baby Pancakes? Apparently, they were all the rage in 1977 when they hit the cover of Sunset magazine. I was a mere 10-year old girl then, whose idea of fun was to turn her pajamas into a […]

Mr. Wild Dingo's Awesome Galette

The Perfect Galette - 224/365 Ever since he accidentally invented the Blueberry Crêpecake, Mr. Wild Dingo has had a hankerin' for a galette. So he did what he always does: obsess over finding  just the right crêpe pan and make me buy it. Like he had to twist my arm? After a few weeks of […]

Flower and Foodie

Chamomile - 202/365 Not much has changed these days. Each day my headaches range from mildly annoying to terrifying migraines.  My energy levels are low to the point I can only do one or two things. Saturday was one of those days. Mr. Wild Dingo was off this week and took over some of my dog […]

Sometimes my Camera Surprises Me

155/365 I take photos of mundane things because sometimes the camera just simply blows my mind. This is just a simple grass shot. And yet it makes me happy.

Sun Rise over Fort Paws & Tails

146/365 Through the fog & redwood, the sun rises over Fort Paws & Tails. I can't take all the credit for this photo. I woke up yesterday morning and found my 50 mm lens on my camera. I rarely use the 50 mm. I saw the mode was set to P. I never use that […]

T-Rex Rocks July 4th

I love my neighborhood. Here I am, walking the dogs this morning bumming about not having a cool July 4-th photo for my daily project and then I see this. Nothing says America like Uncle Sam riding T-rex with a (stars to the right) American flag, symbolizing that we are never running away, but we are […]

Goodbye my friend, Norwood.  I am honored to have met and known you. I will always giggle as I fondly remember how you challenged me to find new and creative ways to use "Harry Funballs" in a sentence. We will miss you but will carry on your legacy to get outdoors every day and bounce. […]

Thirteen

Thirteen years ago, I married that serious looking fella above.  It was a  little surprising for me to marry such a quiet, contemplative dude, given that I'm basically a loud-mouth Italian. But hey, it works and there's not a day that goes by that I don't thank my lucky stars that we found eachother.

The Practice

I took out my yoga mat after having not officially practiced for about two months now. I started in Savasana, otherwise known as corpse (dead body) pose.  I didn't make it much further than that. Being a bit of a firecracker of a personality, Savasana has always been my most challenging pose. And now, its […]
