Rockin’ Time in Orlando

This past weekend, Julie, Dawn and I hosted Food Blog Forum Orlando, my first blogging event in my home state of Florida. Putting on an event is no small task, not only is there a ton of event planning and management work to be done, but there’s also something called, uh, teaching involved in these blogging seminars. me and Julie …

Hot News

A little over ten years ago, I built my dream kitchen. It was my first home that I’d ever owned and I purposely bought an older home, knowing that I would gut and remodel the entire thing. The house had so many walls that you felt like a mouse in a maze just navigating from the front door to the …

Boys at Play

Hi friends, This has been quite an emotional week, with the boys home for Spring Break, Scott and I had to sit them down and explain to them what happens in a natural disaster (no, God is not mad), where do all the people go swept out to sea and encourage them to think about really how precious their lives …

They Draw and Cook; We Fish

We’ve been fishing a lot lately, it’s the perfect weather to do so, the fish are hungry and our pond in the backyard is nice and quiet. These next two photos are my favorite – the Scott and the kids are just so content waiting patiently for the fish to bite.   Sometimes, they’ll be out there for a couple …

Version 28.4.6

I’ve just finished Version 28.4.6 of my book proposal. Done. No more. I’m writed out. Why so many versions and why this silly little numbering system? I’ve written the entire document in Adobe In Design. I’ve had this Adobe program that specializes in publishing documents for 3 years now. I’ve never once used it before until now. I think I …

Subway Launches Banh Mi

Subway launches the Vietnamese Bahn Mi! Okay, not really. But I gotcha, didn’t I?? Guess, who got me? Eat Drink & Be Merry, one of the very first bloggers I’ve ever met in person waaaay back nearly 4 years ago. His poster design on the left here was so convincing (EDBM is a graphic designer by day) that I held …

Thoughts on Blogging

I’m celebrating a birthday this month, my beloved SteamyKitchen.com turns 4 in the next few days. Actually, I think it has turned 4 already, but there were some really wacky first posts that I just had to hide from public view, well, let’s just say back then, the blog had an audience of ONE. My husband. So, you can imagine …

Domains for Sale

  At one point, I owned 120 domain names. So I guess you could call me a domain-name hoarder, but seriously they were silly domains that people wouldn’t ever think of or want in the first place. Every time I think of a cool phrase or idea, no matter how strange, dingbatlike or just plain stupid, I’d go and buy …
