I have been so busy since my new botoxed and beautiful Butter Girl hit the streets on Friday, that I haven't been able to express an official Welcome to you.  Watching my stats (as you know I do!), I did see that many have already taken a peek.  I hope that you like this new place that will now be home for my Butter Girl! 
I need to send a very BIG shout out to my dear friend Olivia Westfall, who patiently and tirelessly worked with me on this project.  I know there have been numerous times that she has chuckled and rolled her eyes, due to my lack of techie knowledge.  Hey...we all have our gifts and I guess that is not one of mine.  In reciprocation, I have challenged her to spend a day in the kitchen with that is where I find myself the most confident and comfortable.  Bring your apron sister and we will see what you've got!
In all honesty, we had a great time working together on this project.  We have grown closer through the experience and Ms. Olivia is someone that I now call my dear friend.  We did a little bartering for her services and funny, the one thing that she requested was the secret recipe for the cranberry-pecan broccoli slaw that I served at the cafĂ©.  Done.  I was proud to share it with her.    Please check out Olivia's website at for any of your creative photography wishes and desires.  (Tell her Butter Girl sent you :D) 
I would be honored and pleased if you would share my Butter Girl with friends and family.  My hope is that together we can spread the word about better health and nutrition!  I know as I move forward in this journey, that my Rick is smiling from above!


  1. It's been my pleasure :)

    It makes me smile to come here and read your words, the look finally matches the person sitting down to write.

    To my dear friend Connie and all her hard-work and patience as well!

Supplement Store Grand Opening!

      SUPPLEMENT STORE GRAND OPENING   Well here it is....finally!  I have aspired for the longest time to make an addition to my website where you can order quality supplements.  REAL supplements vs. the pretend ones you pick up and throw in your shopping carts along with your toilet paper, light bulbs and frozen green beans at Wallie World! As a Certified Nutrition Therapy Practitioner, I am super excited to be able to offer these quality products to you.    Why do I want to make Biotics products available to YOU ?  Because they are REAL my friends, and to state it simply and honestly...they will make you feel great!  These superior products are all natural, organic, plant and animal based.   If you want to run like the wind from 6 a.m. until 11:30 p.m. every day like me...I suggest you give them a try!          More nitty gritty on these fabulous products:   Biotics Research Corporation has been a leading manufacturer of specially designed nutritional p

Pumpkin Doughnut Pleasure

Written for The River Current Publication      I think I have said this before, but I just have to say it again…I love all things pumpkin!   If one doesn’t share my love of pumpkin around this time of year, I suppose it could be a difficult thing.    All that one could do I suppose, would be to sit back and wait for the pumpkin madness to subside!   As we have slipped into the magnificence of a Mid-Western fall season, you will find in my kitchen simmering pots of pumpkin chili, pumpkin breads, pumpkin pies, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin coffees…well, I think you get the pumpkin picture!     For the last couple of weeks I have been craving a good pumpkin doughnut.   I have always been a huge fan of doughnuts, but in my quest for eating healthier, doughnuts are now a ‘once in a blue moon’ kind of treat for me.         I decided to try my luck at baking my doughnuts, rather than the typical fried version…making them a much healthier option.   What can I say…p

11.12.13 Random Anniversary Thoughts

Last week was a shit storm of unpleasantness for me.  For the last week it seems, I have fought back tears and sadness.  Silly things such as a looney ex-husband, rudeness, rejection and the death of a friend's husband; they all seemed to pile up on me like the autumn leaves in my back yard....or cow shit out in a pasture...they just kept piling up!   Perhaps also tucked in the back of my mind were the memories of the beautiful wedding weekend that Rick and I shared two years ago today.  I shared on my blog, Marital Status: W  last year, how I have always been fascinated with the unique sequencing of numbers on a calendar...weird, I know.  Special dates that will never occur again.  Rick and I had teased each other when trying to select such a numerical sequence for our wedding day.  Today the uniqueness of 11/12/13, for some silly reason even brought tears to my eyes.  What a cool date...Rick would have liked it, just as I do.   It is almost unimaginable that it has b
