Trying to go back in time...

I must confess, I have an obsession with looking at other people's food blogs! I feel that I am very regular in the sense of fashion, cooking and decorating... Some of these blogs have a perfect feel of old time and comfort. I want to make my blog more like that. I think one of the reasons I love to look at so many people's wonderful blogs is because their writing is utterly captivating! Their descriptions of memories and moments of cooking is very visual. I can see exactly what they are talking about. I want to be like that!

Here are the few of the blogs that I have been looking at today!

Go check them out for yourselves. You may be surprised what you find! Some of the food looks fantastic as well.  I think I might have to do some investigating to try and get my blog to go back in time without really changing who I am and what I love to do.

In the news of my own cooking; last night I made a Trifle! Delicious! A Lemon Berry Trifle. However, in my excitement to eat it, I forgot to take a picture of it before I dished up! I also was so excited to try it, that I didn't give it much time to set and get cold in the fridge... So it sank... (Another reason I did not want to take a picture of it) Sinking Trifles aren't pretty.

Even still, this Trifle is FABOULOUS! Thank you to Mel's Kitchen Cafe for the recipe. Thank you Chris for making this for the family, so we could all fall in love with it!  I love it because the recipe gives you options to make it all from scratch, or make it a little easier on yourself and get a few items from the store. I am fine with either. This was the first time I made it, and I wanted to do it all from scratch! I did it in a two day time period, and it was so fun!

This was something that did take some time, but every bite is worth it! I PROMISE! I will be making this Trifle throughout the years.

Here is a picture of Mel's Lemon Berry Trifle! ( Mine kind of looked like this... before I cut into it) If you want the recipe, just click the link for Mel's Kitchen Cafe. It should take you right to it.

P.S. If anyone has any great ideas on how to become a better writer, please fill me in. Thanks!


  1. I think you write just fine. Are you anywhere close to Idaho. I live close to a small town also. Our kids are grown and gone and the grandkids are on the east cost also grown. Now we have greatgrands coming along, but they live far away also. So it's us and 4 cats and farming all around us.

  2. Our Guilds, We were living in Idaho, but we just moved to Utah. I have not been on here in so long, but I have so many things to write about.
