About Me

Hi! I'm Beth and I started my blog in July of 2011 just to have a place that I could talk about - to someone other than the dogs -cooking, food and other stuff I like. I chose the name because it's the one thing I've never been able to make so it keeps me humble.

Getting Ready.....

It’s 4 days to our first Food Swap. Not exactly sure how many folks we’ll have this first time out but I’m really excited about it. It’s going to be fun no matter what. I know the date marks one of our country’s saddest times but I can’t think of a better way to spend it than spending time with, and appreciating, the people that make up our community.

I’ve been so excited at the prospect of the Food Swap that I haven’t been able to settle on what to prepare. I’m thinking whoopie pies. I also have pickles, some blackberry jam and some sweet/spicy tomato jam that is really good with cream cheese and crackers. So many options! So while I’m making up my mind about that I’ve added the Food Swap page to the blog to add information about Swaps in general, and so that folks can register and to update everyone on how we did. I do want to give a shout out to all the folks that I gleaned information from – SHOUT! Thanks for the information/inspiration. The Hip Girl’s Guide to Homemaking is the source of all this – be sure to check out her blog.

Another thing I’ve done is to take the leap to schedule a second swap. There were a number of folks that weren’t able to attend this one so I thought we’d try for another. Be sure to check out the Food Swap page, leave me a comment or sign up for the next Food Swap on Oct. 16th
