About Me

Concord, California, United States
I am a sometimes-writer, everyday mama, creative failure and experimental cook. I am interested in living a beautiful life, spending time with my family and making things that I can feel proud of. When I'm by myself I'm usually outside. Don't bother calling because chances are that I didn't bring my cell phone because I couldn't find it. If you see me walking, it's because I lost my keys and if you see me with only one child... I'm probably in big trouble.

Paula Deen, I Covet You.

Okay, anyone who knows me know that I wish I was Paula Deen. I don't want to be her friend. I don't want to be her daughter. I don't want to work at her restaurant or make cameo appearances on her cooking shows. No, folks. I want to BE Paula Deen. I want to look down the barrel of a stick of butter and I want to blow its brains all over a cheeseburger or a peach cobbler or a bowl of wild rice. And I do. Paula Deen is my favorite person (yes, including my children).

Tonight I'm making chicken stew (even though it's August and our highs are record breaking. I've got these new pots and pans that I have to break in). And to pair with the stew I made Paula Deen's Cheese Biscuits. I haven't had one yet, but they look Deenlicious.



  1. i covet her too. although, i would like to be a hybrid of her, tyler florence, giada, and alton brown. those biscuits look AWESOME.

  2. Thanks Laura. I was just over at your blog and was shocked to see your car accident. What happened? I can't phone talk bc my phone is broken. I can text though.

  3. yeah, i rear ended someone, but i was going about 30 when it happened. it wasn't too bad, just scary because my kids were in the car. ugh. no fun. thankfully, no one was hurt. i'll text at you tomorrow! xoxo

  4. I think she is the one I don't like. But I don't like butter. I don't care if it's in things, but I don't like butter on my toast. It's just a thing. I think you should strive to be *Mama Holler* cook extraordinaire!
