Fresh Cod

Kelly's Take Take A Taste

A sweet friend of mine gave me some fresh cod from Alaska that her husband caught himself.  I was super excited about it until I realized that I had no idea on how to cook it. I love to cook, probably because I love food in general, but also my mom and her mom were awesome cooks.  One thing that…

His ~ Her Different Takes Kelly's Take

I am fascinated by all the modern technology in today’s world.  Yet, I am torn between not wanting to use it (I still love my old school ways) and the need to use it for work and staying in touch with family and friends.

My Mini Donkey’s

Country Take Kelly's Take

Last Spring my Mini Mediterranean Donkey pair (Westly & Buttercup) became the proud parents of a little female.  To our surprise she was born almost pure white.  We were expecting to see a grey mini.  Needless to say, we adore her.  She has been so fun to watch grow.  She is 9 months old now, happy, healthy and spunky.

Grammar Police

Kelly's Take

I know I should pay better attention than I do on the use of proper grammar when I am writing, but I must confess that I do not really care.  If I use the wrong “there” or “you’re” instead of “you are”  and another one I abuse often is “course” vs “coarse”.  In my defense, I write like I talk,…
