It was nearly 20 years ago when I packed up my house in the Pacific Northwest and moved to the Midwest; I didn’t know anyone here other than a few young adults from my church who were attending the same college I was going to attend. August was also the first time I’d ever heard […]

I left my home in Washington State in 1996 and remember writing the word ‘Rome’  in my journal; I had never traveled out of the country and had absolutely no reason to think I would be going to Europe let alone Italy, any time soon. But I did. In December of 1997 I traveled with a […]

CHICKEN POT PIE

Anyone out there grow up eating frozen pot pies?  Anyone ever have a good frozen pot pie experience?  Thought so.  Frozen pies in tiny aluminum tins – Banquet, Swanson’s, store brand, didn’t matter – they all ended up with soggy bottoms (I’m not talking about those funny guys from the movie, ‘O Brother, Where Art […]
