I am an unofficial, untrained Foodie Chef & and Interior Designer. When I was younger, I had been accepted into The School of Design with a full scholarship. And THEN...fast forward...I
met HIM! The love of my life, my hubby, better known as, "Ornery", my Sous Chef! * (Read More about him Below) I knew immediately he was my destiny. And my future as the Ranch Wife,
Mama £ Grand Mama laid just ahead of me.! A destiny clearly tailor made for me...It's GOOD to be WHERE You Belong! I have had many jobs over the years and good ones too! BUT...To
Love who you are, & who you share your life with is....Priceless!
I Love to Cook, Bake & Create my own recipes for Family & Friends. For years, I have been asked to share my recipes, create whole menus, table decor, party themes, even help redo
furniture & interior decors by friends & family! I am often encouraged to "do something" with my untrained talents. At this station in my life, I'm not inclined to return to school or start
something that will tie me down. I am perfectly happy with who I am...
"Just Me" !
One of my favorite pastimes is "reading" cookbooks. I love to make a recipe my own by tweaking here & there, to suit my tastes and that of my family. Boring to some, I'm sure! But, I never
have to worry about taste testers or honest opinions, there are plenty of friends & family to oblige me!
My recipes, for the most part, fall in the Semi-homemade category , without ever compromising taste. I do have my "Foodie Faux Pas", just like most people.....I just laugh, fix it if I can and
move on! I will even share those with you in "The Opinionated Palate" section of the Blog! "When Life gives you Lemons, make Lemonade"! Life is too busy & short to compromise your
lifestyle, taste buds or frame of mind!
Life is a Blessing, so why not Enjoy it with Style...
Meet my Sous Chef Hubby....."Ornery"! Yep, you read it right....."Ornery"! Years ago, Hubby's Dad jokingly asked how I put up with him being ornery! ( My Husband has always been a
very determined person. setting goals & plans...preparing for the future, even achieving his PhD. NOW that's determined & impressive since we had to work our way through College). I
replied with a laugh....."That's why I call him "On-Rhee" (pronounced in a French tone as if his name was HENRY) ...because.... he's O-R-N-E-R-Y! Dad laughed...and then he just walked
away smiling and shaking his head! That Man never knew what was going to come out of my mouth! That moniker has stuck with my Husband all these years and quite frankly, he wears
it as a Badge of Honor!
He's an awesome Sous Chef! He cleans the kitchen better than I do sometimes ! BUT... Ya gotta love a Man who does the dishes! We enjoy working side by side in the kitchen! Although, I
do need to show him HOW to replace the trash liner when he takes out the trash! Ha-Ha..... I guess I can't complain TOO much! He's not only a great Sous Chef, he is a great cook too!
You will see a few of his recipes, ideas, comments and approvals through out the Blog!
He's a Good Man with a Style all his Own.
