You may have noticed I’ve been missing since February. Don’t worry, I’m still here just haven’t been blogging. I had major surgery in April and it made me realize I need to focus my time better so instead of writing four blogs (crazy!), I am going to only write two. To read more about the last few months and the surgery, here are links to posts in my main blog, EvinOK:
The last of those links details the growth and its removal as well as my recovery. It was a rough road but I wanted to share my experience with others to help them be less fearful of the surgery. It is intimidating but not impossible.
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog. This covers all of 2013, but I am back dating the post so the final post for this blog directs you to my new venture, EvinOK.
Here’s an excerpt:
The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 11,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
It has taken a few months, but I am finally getting around to telling you all about the Goodall’sA Modern Irish Cookbook and Book Launch. I’ve posted the whole lovely story with happy launch party photos (including one of little LB) over on my main blog: EvinOK.net
I am sharing a few recipes that would suit for Thanksgiving (or Christmas) dinner menus. These are just links to the sources, sometimes within this blog. I’ve tried to avoid the usual recipes for some that are a little more memorable since I know every website has you covered on how to roast a turkey.
No matter what you eat for dinner, the thing to remember is that with any holiday feast, the people are the most important ingredient. Happy holidays!
Today, I am sharing Grandma’s very special pumpkin pie recipe with you. I am calling it Grandma’s Pumpkin Pie, but it is more likely to my great-grandma’s or great-great-aunt’s since they all were into baking and all their recipes were mixed together in this tin of happiness. Plus the original recipe was written in a way that was not my Grandma’s usual manner of recipe writing and sounded more like her mother’s phrasing. But no matter who started first brought this pumpkin pie to the family’s dinner table, it is a family favorite and made from real pumpkin pulp. I’ve posted the recipe on my main blog, EvinOK.net.
