I decided to make my marinated beets for a potluck I went to over the weekend and the recipe for marinated beets was one of my first blog posts.  I try and post many of my favorite recipes so I know where they are!

Last year I decided that I was...

Like too many adults I was the victim of sexual abuse as a child.  Reading and listeining to the Penn State Scandal has made me remember and feel things I do not want to.  Being sexually molested has damaged my life in ways that I am still trying to deal with and move beyond well into my middle a...
