Welcome to my new and improved blog

You will have to give me a pass for a bit until I figure out this whole WordPress editor thing.  I’m still trying to figure out how to change simple things like font let alone putting in pictures.  I may be an engineer but I analyze rotating machinery, not write code. 🙂  This took me long enough to get everything transferred over from my old blogs in the small amount of time I have in the evenings after getting the wee ones in bed.  I think I finally have everything worked out to transfer people over here but???

Long story short, I decided that I just didn’t have the time and energy to facilitate two blogs right now.  Maybe when the littles are older I will separate out the recipes again but until then, all together it is.  I chose the “A Recipe For Happiness” title as I felt that it represents a lot of what both blogs were about.  Recipes both in food and family that makes me happy.

Since the demise of Google Reader is imminent,  I also switched over to reading my blogroll to Bloglovin.  So far I like it a lot.  I had to re-sort everything but it’s easy to read and quickly look through everything.  Head on over and follow me there!

2013 Task List

Sooo, I’m not much one for new year resolutions but I do love a good list.  I find that lists help me to sort out what to do for the day, organize my thoughts, and generally make me feel better about actually getting something accomplished in my “too much to do, too little time to do it” life.  I have been known to stop a task I’m doing, walk over to my list, write down the task, and then complete the task just so I can have something to cross off.  Some of these are on my ever expanding Before I’m 50 Bucket List so double crossing off points for me!  Without further ado, in no particular order, here is my To Do List for 2013.

2013 To Do List

1.  Take a yoga class.

2.  Make macaroons

3.  Build raised beds in the garden

4.  Can at least 3 things from my garden

5.  Write at least once a week on my cooking blog

6.  Write at least once a week on this blog

7.  Be more frugal. (Put money into saving every month)

8.  Update the header on this blog to more accurately reflect life now. (Since the pic of the baby is Rose at 2 months.  She’s now 3.5 years)

9.  Learn to make pasta

When Daddy’s Attack!

The following is rarely seen footage of a Daddy Attack.  The photographer wasn’t able to actually capture the elusive Daddy himself on film but only the last moments of freedom of his intended victim.  As you can see, the Daddy had distracted his prey from her imminent doom with a one of his commonly used tools called a ‘remote control’.  An object he knows no baby can resist.  Note the last desperate look the poor baby gives before she disappears into the Daddy’s lair.  Click here if you can’t see the video.

Looking at this it made me realize that it was the last time I ever saw that dvd remote she is playing with…

Attack of the zombie baby!!!!

I think I’m raising a zombie. A cute smiley zombie (is that an oxymoron?) but a zombie. Seriously. She walks around with her hands outstretched making growly nonsensical noises and drooling. She always trying to chew on various parts of my body including (gasp!) my face. Going for the brains perhaps? Her clothing is often dirty and stained (from graveyard dirt?) and she occasionally has a very rank smell about her.

What do you think?
