New Blog Look

I painted two rooms in my house this month, so the new background seemed perfect. Besides, the jellybeans were making me hungry every time I logged on.

Edible Flowers

I saw an article in Vegetarian Times today entitled "Flowers for Foodies."  I knew pansies, marigolds, and lavendar were edible, but check out all the wild flowers that can be used in many different recipes.

Peter Rabbit may want to visit Mr. McGregor's flowers after he wanders through the vegetable garden. (So far, my visiting wild backyard bunny hasn't discovered my pansies.)

Quirky is Best

I recently got a chance to catch up with busy children's author, Katie Speck on her Maybelle the Cockroach series. Katie is from an area along the Gulf Coast I have recently become familiar with. Plus, after living in hot, humid Houston for a long time, I've encountered Maybelle's relations on several occasions. Check out these fun, original picture books like Maybelle in the Soup and Maybelle Goes to Tea at I think you'll soon be a Maybelle fan too.
