The Hits and Misses of 2022

What’s that strange looking contraption? It’s a Hit-and-Miss Engine. Conceived in the late 19th century, the Hit ‘N’ Miss was produced by a number of companies from the 1890s through the 1940s. What does this combustion engine have to do with recipes? Nothing. I just like it.

Looking Back At

This is now my forth year of looking back at recipes we’ve shared. Wow – four years is a long time, don’t you think? I’m so grateful for each and every person I have had the pleasure of “meeting” on this amazing journey through cyberspace. How I’d love to sit down and break bread with you in the real world. My faith tells me we will meet one day, if not in this world then at the banquet table in heaven.

The Best of a Wild and Crazy Year

Here we are, a full day into the New Year. New beginnings, new paths, new discoveries yet to find. Thanks everyone for another fantastic year of sharing thoughts; ideas and recipes. As we take those first cautious steps toward the adventures of yet another new year; I thought I’d look back one last time at what was. Times might have been rough, but the food was delicious! Here are twelve recipes that seemed to strike your fancy.

2019 in the Rear View Mirror

Can you believe it? Another year over. When I was young, time seemed to stand still. Now it seems if I blink a day or a week or even a month has suddenly flown by. The nice thing about a new year is that we get to start fresh. It’s also nice to take one last glance at what had been.

And Now a Moment of Silence

Today’s scheduled post for Family Style Spaghetti has been postponed. There was something oddly “wrong” about posting a family style recipe and brushing aside the significance of this day. Eighteen years – that’s a long time, a lifetime for some, and our country has yet to fully heal. The wounds are deep. For some the anger runs even deeper. Something happens when an entire nation drops to their knees and weeps. I wish I could say God turned it around, made everything right again, but that’s not entirely true.

Early Morning Reflection

One year ago today, on February 8, 2018 I brought together three of my favorite pastimes, cooking, photography and writing in one modest blog. With the launching of Rosemarie’s Kitchen, I dared to invite strangers to pull up a chair, help themselves to a cup of coffee and chat a while as we cooked together. Food was always the number one subject, but not the only one. There were memories, and rants and thoughts that floated out across the pages. Many of you have been here from the beginning, others joined in later as the adventure continued. It’s been one heck of a year.

Food for Thought

I know, this is a food blog – but every now and again, I am not in the mood for sharing a recipe so much as I feel the desire to invite you in for a visit and to chat a while. I don’t know about you, but looking toward the new year makes me think about the past.
