About Me

My photo
+++Enter At Your Own Risk+++ At the gentle nudging (I said gentle y'all) of a few friends, I have started these blogs in order to share my culinary goings-on and daily misadventures through my own brand of humor (ok, sarcasm). I just write about stuff! At 50, I have learned that living has gotten in the way of life - and I am going to blaze my own personal trail to fun (hopefully)! If it is feminine, great. If it is not, so much the better! Hopefully fun that does not land me in jail............

Ein wenig über mich... (My ten things)

  1. My favorite thing in the military was throwing hand grenades which I only got to do a few times.
  2. I love to travel.
  3. I miss my father so much…
  4. I am more proud of my daughter than I could ever say.
  5. I garden, partly for the good grub, partly in an effort to carry on what my grandparents and parents taught me.
  6. I do love East Tennessee. I have lived in Memphis, Europe, Maryland, Pennsylvania and etc., but I came back here. We have mountains, flat lands, water, 4-wheeling, camping….  You can’t beat it – as long as you can breath…
  7. I may never put my MBA into use as far as getting paid more, but what I learned while earning it has come in handy.
  8. I cook, sew, draw, paint, create, sharpen knives plus I love to go to pistol range…  And while my pseudonym is Cookie, I cannot bake cookies much at all.  Just doesn’t work out for me.
  9. I have been wayyy toooo close to being a crazy cat lady……..
  10. I spent 3 years in Germany as a soldier in our army and 4 years as a helo mechanic stateside.  Not a real girly thing to do...
What was your first car? 
My first car was in 1987, while stationed in the military in Darmstadt West Germany (yes,

before Germany was reunited),  an old used blue 4-door
OpelAscona that my then husband and I called the “Opel Ocean” because it would leak into the passenger side of the car and there would be water that would slosh in waves from the front to rear floorboards. The day I got out of the hospital with my daughter, who was 4 days old, the car was rear-ended when my husband stopped for a
Straßenbahn. We kept the car long enough to PCS out back to the states and then sold it to a junk yard…  TRUE STORY>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>!!!

Tell me about your first kiss?
Ha!  Do not remember.  At all…..

Favorite Song?
Strangely enough, there is a tie between
Rammstein’s “Sonne”
Bill Monroe’s "Walk Softly on this Heart of Mine".
What is your favorite thing about blogging?
I like cooking. I used to be a creative sort and lost it while trying to survive.  Blogging allows me to chronicle life events that entertain me, share recipes and etc. without investing tons of money…

If you could make one celebrity disappear, who would it be and why?
Kris Jenner – because if she weren’t here, maybe I would not have to hear about the Kardashians – over and over and ……  The End.

Would you rather get a dream vacation to anywhere for two weeks or spend one week with any one person in the world at home?
I would take one week with my Dad.

Twitter or Instagram?
I have both. I use Instagram more. But I do like Twitter ok.

What was your worst hair mistake?
A curl enhancing haircut, called Ouidad, that cost $150, and all it did was THIN my hair out and make it stringy. It took 2+ years to grow out…  The hair Products are great however. ExPeNsIvE but great!!!

Favorite shoes to wear? 
My white Chuck Taylors

Best cure for a hangover?
Don’t get one. Do I follow this advice? Eh…………….. Well………….

  5. If you could stay a particular age forever, what would that age be?
