It's All Her Fault




Happy Saturday Dear Friends!


I have something new to share with you today....


a learning experience for me...

a therapy session for my sister...

and (hopefully) rewarding to all of us!!


You see....

my dear sister and I have started 

A NEW BLOG!!

Together,
we are attempting to 
"preserve"
all of the Old family recipes...

(it may be the weather
or maybe just all the vinegar I've been inhaling)

anyway, I've coerced big sister into finally acting
on the cookbook she's always wanted to do.

She's agreed to co-administer a blog with me...

and together we are going to put
together our passions for 
cooking and photography,
throw in what we know...
which is house-keeping,
and intersperse it with
memorabilia from the family archives!!

And, unlike our hard-working fore-mothers,
we will keep it simple,light-hearted
and FUN!!

We have pie-eyed dreams of 
a published cookbook,
but won't waste any time waiting
for $$$ deals!!

So,
please check it out!

I'm indebted to my sister for
taking such good care of me
(baby-sitting your little sister on date-nights 
was not cool!)


It's 40 years later,
I still call her if I need a good laugh
or I need a shoulder to cry on.

This project will be so much fun...
(if she can get over her fear of sharing recipes)

Our new blog is called
"Pickles and Petunias"


As usual,
 she's 10 steps ahead of me
and has already done a couple of posts!! 

PLEASE VISIT!!

I whole-heartedly hope you will hit our follow button!

and
of course,
we want your input
in comments too!!!!!!!

are you ready to 
check it out?

Here's a link

Have a super weekend!
Lisa
