It's Been Awhile

I know it's been many, many months since I've written anything here. Please know that I am well. I am cooking and living and have a lovely job doing of all things, teaching cooking! It keeps me busy and happy and fulfilled.

There have been many changes over the last 4 years in my life and just when I am coming to be at peace with all that life has presented to me, this happens:

My youngest bouncing baby boy, A US Marine.

I know I am not the only mother of a deployed Marine. There have been and continue to be thousands of us... too many of us. My heart goes out to each and every parent, sister, brother, wife, husband and family member and friend of a deployed military member as you worry and watch the news. My prayers go out to our military for your safe return home.

Let's not forget any of our brave American warriors. Let us not forget their sacrifices. And let's bring them all home, safely. This is my prayer of the day. 


  1. Amen to your prayer. I will keep you and yours in my prayers. Catherine

  2. Hi Linda - yes, it's been a while and I'm so glad to hear you are doing well.
    Yes, prayers for your son - that he comes home safely. You may want to contact Deborah in Arizona ( She lost her husband less than a year ago and has a son in the military.

    Sending hugs.

    1. Wendy, Thank you.. I will contact Deborah, if just to let her know I stand with her and hold her son in my prayers.

  3. I hope they all come home safe!

  4. Of course you teach cooking! It's your gift to the world. And the world exhales a breath of thanks in return. May your son, and all the others, be safe. Glad you popped in to let us know.

  5. possibly you check your blog comments, perhaps not. i had just discovered you after your loss. maybe you will return someday. I keep you in my r eager just in case.


Wow. Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I love feedback... what with being a cook and all. I will respond to your comments via email (if you do not have a "noreply" address or here, below your comment) As always, Bon Appetite!
