Top Ten Tuesday: Recipe Bucket List

Tuesday, October 17, 2017
As of yesterday, I am officially a Work From Home Mom.  I decided that I will blog full-time, which for me means posting 2 to 3 times a week and really delivering great lifestyle content to my readers.  I want to be helpful and inspiring and what better way to do that than starting in the kitchen!

My love of cooking comes from my maternal Grandmother.  Just like sewing.  I would just sit up under her almost every time she started cooking.  How she never got tired of me is a mystery but she didn't.  We really enjoyed each other's company and she let me help her all the time.  I love how cooking and kitchens bring back memories.  Even if you don't like cooking or never got into it, I bet you have great memories of someone cooking and you eating delicious meals!

Thanks to Google Analytics, I know I have several new readers here on The Cocooners (woo hoo)!  So I wanted to share 10 fun facts about me in the hope that you get to know me a bit better and find me more relateable (perhaps, I can be an odd bird at times but I like that about myself).

My sweet son Dax turned five last month.  It's such a milestone birthday and I can't believe how much he's grown in five years.  We had a small family party for him and he wanted a Batman theme so I did my best.  Here are a few pictures of the set up.

See Through Eyes of Compassion

Thursday, September 28, 2017
I don't normally write posts like this but it was on my heart for a while and I'm a definitely listening to what the Universe says these days.  So, warning:  this is long.  Read, don’t read, do you, but I hope you read all the way until the end and please comment with your thoughts.


I always say, humans have big brains for a reason and we need to start using them as God intended. Our big brains allow us to think in ways that the standard animal cannot. We can move past basic biological functions with thought and knowledge. Our baser instincts can be restrained with compassion, empathy and sympathy. It is these things that we as a whole are seriously lacking as a country.

Last week I bought some puff pastry in the hopes of recreating my middle school pizza pockets.  Lo and behold, when I was finally inspired to get down in the kitchen, I found I was out of mozzarella cheese.  This is after I already set my puff pastry sheet out to thaw.  Fail!  So I had to think quick on my toes and figure out what to do with my pastry so it wouldn't go to waste.
