Homemade Buttermilk Bread

I love to cook. So much so, I published my first cookbook earlier this year of some of my favorite recipes. During these days of quarantine, I find myself cooking more. Back in the day, I made homemade bread often, but, over the years, got out of the habit.

Thanks, Bill

One act of kindnessWe've all heard that you don't always know how your actions (or inactions) affect others.  A simple smile or kind word can mean all the world to someone. I got one of those smiles when I was a freshman in high school. We won't discuss how many years ago that was, but I still remember it to this day.

I Am an Ornament Junkie

I am an ornament junkieI am one of those people who has no issue with Christmas stuff being out before Halloween. I could spend hours in hobby and craft stores—in fact, I have. I can look at something and go "oh I can make something with that" or I will sift through the ornaments and find that just right one for a special person or the one that is so off the wall I just have to put it on my tree.
