I drool for garlic near to die,

Would I to find a living, breathing Garlic Rose,

In a heartbeat I’d up and marry,

Nay not for money but for love of the Stinky Rose!”

By HomeRearedChef, published on Dec 10, 2012

Recreating this recipe, of eggs, cheese, milk, flour and butter, with actual hands on and following the easy step-by-step recipe, made me realize all the hard work, endless hours and love that Julia poured into everything she did.

Arroz Salvadoreño, Salvadorian Fried Rice

By HomeRearedChef, published on Dec 9, 2012

Rice was one of the first things I learned to cook, hanging around in the kitchen and watching my mother. And as a matter of fact, my daughters, too, have mastered making our Salvadorian fried rice. First thing is to find a favorite pot just for making your rice, finding one that makes perfect rice every time. And my mother has this wonderful old heavy pot that she has used exclusively for years, for making her rice. She still has it—almost 45 years old now—and her three daughters all covet this pot. There is something about my mother’s rice that none of us girls can duplicate; it’s just different... (more)

Having Coffee, Destinesia, and Brain Farts

By HomeRearedChef, published on Dec 8, 2012

The coffee was delicious. The view was spectacular. The company was warm and friendly. And the conversation soon went from smooth, easy talking to, well, her experiencing senior moments and me dealing with obvious gaps from destineesia, Menopausal Moments. “...So where was I going with this...?”

We made a comical pair, my mother and I; a perfect setting for a comedy. We talked about old movies, a favorite past-time; we named actors of today and those now gone, until we began drawing a blank that is. We gave each other clues and suggestions, hoping to jog our memories. After knocking... (more)

A Melt-In-Your-Mouth Holiday Fruitcake

By HomeRearedChef, published on Dec 6, 2012

The “Fruitcake” has been given a unfairly labeled; it has been called a doorstop, a brick, a paperweight; it is said that it is easier to cut it with a chainsaw than a knife. But perhaps they couldn’t think of a better gift to give; and perhaps this one promises to be surprisingly delicious. But only a wee sample, given a [fair] chance, will tell for sure!

Rising from the Ashes and Taking Second Chances

By HomeRearedChef, published on Dec 5, 2012

“Carpe diem quam minimum credula postero,” seize the day, putting as little trust as possible in the future. And that’s just what many single moms are doing today, seizing the moment at hand. They are taking control of their own lives. Life, after all, is often a disambiguation.

The Reality: Life happens. Love is found. Marriage is made. Family is created. Dreams are crushed. And in many cases, when there just isn’t room for compromise, divorce is the ultimatum. Today, brave women are boldly girding themselves and moving to rise from still smoldering ashes and carving a new path for... (more)
