This blog is a mix of randomness (hence the junk drawer) but mostly focused on my quest to be craftier, thriftier and a better cook/baker. It is about time to get this life of mine organized and enjoy some good food, wine and laughs (probably at myself) along the way. My grandmother always kept everything and my grandfather would always tinker. I think I got a little of both in me – i love to sort through old stuff and think of new ways to use them and, to the best of my ability, do it myself. Sometimes its a huge success, sometimes it is my lack of patience, stubbornness and know how that get the best of me. Join my journey as I find cool things and attempt to make them cooler… teaching myself things about me along the way.
