I’m Sandi. That’s me in the middle, though you may be surprised to learn that this wasn’t written by a child. My kids and I, we sit on hay.

I like to cook. I love to eat. I cook to eat.  I belong to a CSA, so I mostly cook using local and seasonal produce. The recipes shown here are all food I make for my family. My goal is to share delicious recipes that are simple to make, so that you can get to the eating part sooner.

This is where I live:

The Beach

I don’t actually live in the ocean, but I do live near it, which I think is better, and which always surprises me still.

Wanna tell me something? Have a suggestion for my hair? Send me a note!  I’d love to hear from you.  Thanks for stopping by. I really appreciate it.


Oh, and just a little note about images. If you want to use my images, I’d really appreciate a credit and a link back to this site. If you’re not sure, just ask. Thanks!

      Thank you SO MUCH Danielle! So sweet of you I am going to put this on the resume right after my last award, the School Spelling Bee of 1979.

    My pleasure! I read and re-read your posts because they’re too short and you’re so dang funny. Yes! Update the resume! And spelling bees are COOL–which means you were super cool as a kid. How do you do it all?

    I have this short term memory and forget you blog. You are hilarious. If you wrote a book I’d buy it and read it. Wear a skirt to Costco to try things on right in the aisles??? I thought I was the only one!!! Lol!

      Hey, thanks for stopping by, Alice! Maybe there’s a reason everyone forgets I blog :(. But I just put up a Facebook page today so people on Facebook can Like / follow my posts if they want to: http://www.facebook.com/AllTheGoodBlogNamesAreTaken . But, if you start following I will have to stop stealing photos from your Facebook page! 🙂

    Your writing style is hilarious and endearing. Great qualities! I especially love your header photo. I (and Tim Robbins) think beets are the crown jewels of the vegetables…. They’re so beautiful and delicious. I just love looking at those slices!

      Thank you so much, Sophie! I’m so glad you knew those were beets…I was afraid people would think they were pools of blood! I’m off now to check out your blog — I can tell already from your gorgeous pics that I’m going to enjoy it. Thanks for stopping by!

    Hi Sandi!
    Your blog is amazing! And I love the name….Actually I had the same problem when choosing a name for my blog so I chose something completely irrelevant…well that’s life and it is not completely out of context because my blog is like a mix and match box of socks. I am going to add you to my feed and keep up with you and your adventures!

      Thanks Maria! I’m impressed that you’ve found a way to combine painting, food and cats in any medium :). Look forward to checking out your blog too!
