Great Foodies = Great Recipes = Great Savings!

Patricia Lever 52 mins · Are you someone who looks for great recipes? I do. I live beneath my means but I like to live very well beneath those means. Finding meals that satiate my sophisticated palette and my pocket book are easier than first believed. I cook either in the slow cooker or on [...]

Getting my feet wet… Chicken feet style!

I’m no Anthony Bourdain, but since leaving radio in August 2016, I have spent some of my spare time dancing again with my creativity and exploring alternative dishes with local, organic farmers.

Most mornings…

I wake up early most mornings; early, as in 4:30am. When I’m up before the crack of dawn, my days seem so productive. It may sound romantic, and perhaps in some ways it is.

Meltdown To Wholeness

Life Is A Box of Chocolates

It never ceases to amaze me how people are shocked when a couple breaks-up! I just read an article that a celebrity couple is divorcing and how everyone is shocked and dismayed. Why would anyone be shocked at a couple's breakup in this day and age of awareness and change? Unless of course, the archaic [...]

Once Upon A Time

There was a girl named Ella who was quite extraordinary. She had a gift, a brilliant Light, which went unseen by most. Her father wasn’t the kindest of fathers. However, her grandmother knew of her gift, which made Ella feel very special. Growing up, most adults wanted her to be what they wanted her to [...]

Let Go and Let Love

The events over the last few days have felt displaced but on track and aligned, oddly enough. I sat at McDonald's this morning enjoying a cup of coffee for the second day in a row, writing some of my thoughts in my trusted notebook. I was contemplating a recent post I did on Facebook about [...]

Drive-ins Are Forever!

When I was growing up, my brothers and I would constantly argue as to who was going to get a window seat in the car. So, my Dad bought a monster of a station wagon, whereby we could all have a window seat somewhere in the car. The Catalina was an interesting car. Not only [...]

Man of My Dreams…here you come!

Now that my son has grown and has stepped out from under my skirt-tails, it's time for me to design the love life I want. Well, to be more honest, I've dated over the past 7 years. Yet relationship after relationship, although enjoyable, honest and caring, were disappointing. When I realized that I needed to [...]
