Hey there!

Okay, what do you want to know?

Where do you live? I am a lifelong resident of  the Southern Adirondacks in Upstate, NY - as in North of Albany - not just "North of the City"... Although, I did spend a few years just outside of Philly while in college. I love the city, but am a small town girl in my bones. Heck, I grew up with cows grazing in the fields that surrounded three sides of my parents house. Once in a while, one would break loose and you would find them staring up at you through the bathroom window (talk about things that scare the daylights out of you).

I reserve the right to change my stance on my desire to be a life-long country girl at any time - depending on time of year, weather, lack of service, mood, weather, weather, weather...

What's your parenting deal? I am the mother to two crazy & wonderful ladies - also known as Runner Girl and Culinary Kid (aka Karate Kid; aka Fussy Eater). They are totally night and day, but amazing in their own unique way. Runner Girl is in her third year of college with a goal of entering the health profession. College searching was an experience. I am pleased to announce that we all survived. My laundry quotient has significantly diminished... Culinary Kid is taking some time to figure out what's next. She does her own laundry, but I do have high hopes that my towel stockpile will increase once "what's next" finally comes along.

What's up with The Dude? Great question. When I figure it out, I'll let you know. He's a good egg. But he doesn't like soup or anything too suspicious looking. He likes chocolate cake with chocolate frosting. I like lemon with (fill in the blank). It makes things mighty interesting when I am on an experimental tangent. He's one of those super-smart people that (almost) everyone seems to want to be around - it drives me absolutely crazy. He did build me a pergola, so I have to go easy on him. We call him "The Mayor". It makes for some fun stories.

What do you do all day? In my "big person" role, I am involved in Supply Chain for a manufacturing company. It's crazy out there, but I like it...

What kind of camera do you use? Prior to 12/14, it was either a point and shoot or my iPhone (yes, I know). Now, I am working with a Canon Rebel t5 with an 18-55 mm lens. I am still learning how to use it; but so far, I like the control it gives me.

Where else are you? Well, I can only be one place at a time. But if you want to reach me, I can be reached at...

Why don't you have all cool links on your side bar? Um, I am not cool enough to figure out how to do that yet.

Do you consider yourself a "food blogger"? Not really. I like to write and I like to cook, bake and eat. That's all.

Any questions?

Peace Out.




  1. Thank you Cher for your nice comments! I greatly enjoy reading all of your posts, you tell wonderful stories and I am certainly very glad to have joined the TwD as well as the FFwD group - it gives me the opportunity to connect with wonderful people. Looking forward to many happy baking and cooking adventures!

  2. I do have a question: why aren´t there any pictures of YOU?

    1. My family would ask the same question... Believe it or not, I am very shy :-)

  3. Hey Cher, It's Tammy from Bean and Pie. Hope this doesn't sound stalker-ish, but I'm going up to Albany this weekend to visit family. How close are you to East Greenbush? Want to meet up somewhere for coffee on Saturday? Thought it might be fun to meet someone "live" from the TWD group.

    If you're available, email me and we can work out details: tammy.kleinman0[at]gmail.com

  4. I love your "about" page - hilarious and yet very informative!
