Cincinnati Fish Fry Tour- St. Cecelia Stop #3

Cincinnati has a large Catholic population and I’m part of that group.   With the Catholic faith comes the Lent season and with Lent………..comes fish frys! As for our family, we usually hit up the closest neighborhood fish fry once or twice during Lent.  Why that particular one?  Well, It’s close.  The price is good.  The…

8 can soup

I have been making a 7 can soup recipe for a long time but yesterday I found a new version in the paper. I decided to cut it out and give it a try.  I have to say I like this version just as well, if not better, than my version. 1 can of meat…

Sausage and peppers

So this recipe is not something I would normally like……or should I say, I wouldn’t normally try. Sampled and fell in love.  Wasn’t sure how my family would like it but just couldn’t get this recipe out of my mind so I had to make it.  This is super simple, inexpensive and has so much…

Cincinnati Fish Fry Tour- St. Gertrude

Mary, Sex, Kill- Book Review

Just finished this book and I have to say, it was ADDICTING!   Hard to put down.  It has a little bit of everything juicy.   A weird computer game, black magic, ghosts, dumb ass teenagers- it has it all.  The description of the characters were so vivid, you could picture them.  The gym teacher, the…

More Meatless Meals!

Many times, when folks find out that I celebrate Lent, I get the question, “Do you really think God is going to send you to hell if you eat meat on Fridays??”  Of course I don’t think that. That’s silly.  For me, giving up meat during Lent is about sacrifice.  It’s a very tiny show…
