Rileys Childrens Hospital in Indianapolis. My grandmother use to knit and...

My mother is an alcoholic. she doesn't drink socially, she drinks daily and to a horrifying extreme. I have seen the level of her vodka bottle in the fridge and she is drinking over a liter of vodka a day. To put that into perspective, a liter is 33.8 ounces of liquid. A mixed drink by Indiana law will only have 1.5...

I'm so sorry, addiction is a horrible disease but you have to remember you can't make someone get better, they have to choose to get better.ย

a disease unfortunately! but the problem never comes out of nowhere, so there is a reason! she's your mom, give her a drop of more love and more likely to say you love her, distract her that there are forces, it is hard, but one she did not exactly get out there! I liked your photos with Grandma! I want you to smile three ๐Ÿ˜‰

I drove into work today to hear the news of shootings in Munich. The news was devistating because that is not how i remember the city. Munich is ling considered the safest city in all of Germany.

I recently watched the movie "Chef" again and it just floored me. If you havent seen it, i recommend it highly. It made me miss being in the kitchen and creating dishes. All i have thought about this last week is when i make this move to Florida in late August, looking to start my own kitchen and get back to being me. Recipies and...

Yesterday was a lazy day. Lunch, going shopping, a beautiful day in indiana. I had made plans with an old hockey buddy to get together. Our dozenth attempt this year, each attempt before interrupted by my health, other family obligations, or just not being able to connect. Yesterday, i text Chris in the afternoon to see if he was still up to meet or if...

I just spend 30 minutes on the drive home listening to the BBC on PBS about the news that the greatest has passed. Rest in peace Muhammed Ali. You will always be the greatest, the prettiest, and the baddest. The world is a far colder place with the loss of this icon

That moment when you are so lost in thought that you laugh out loud in a crowd of co workers and you realise when all eyes are on you that if people could actually hear the conversations in your head you would either be locked in a padded room or exiled from the community. Yeah that may have just happened

Happy Birthday! <3

To brighten the day of @chefbeth, i decided to share part of a conversation i had with a former kitchen manager while i was the dessert and salad chef. Conversation in the back of the house can be somewhat salty ( see what i did there?) and a little vulgar, but its overall a family. The question was posed as to how the term "tossing salad...
