When The Universe Hit The ‘Pause’ Button

Jacks Smack Universe Pause-Button

The world is up-ended. Uncertainty, fear, and anxiety abound. We are not in a personal or U.S. crisis; we are in a global catastrophe. There is not one human amongst us that is exempt from the current pandemic. Not one.  I am not sure this has ever happened before, at this magnitude. COVID19 is weird… […]

Subtle, Significant, Side Effects of COVID-19

Shitake Mushroom and Squash Lentil Pasta

It’s challenging at my house. I live with men and they take their consumption of meat fairly seriously. Trying to find new ways to bring protein to the dinner table without the use of livestock is an ongoing quest. Add to this my quirky relationship with ONE bowl meals (I will do almost anything to […]
