Mama Knows Her Cocktails Debut

February 13, 2012

I hope your 2012 is off to a tiptop start.  I’ve been busy launching my latest endeavor, Mama Knows Her Cocktails.  I’d be so happy if you would visit my new blog to see what I am doing.  Organic gardening and cooking, thrifted barware, a cocktail bar with industrial style, and delicious cocktails all in one place!

I will be retiring from posting on this blog.  My deepest thanks for supporting my efforts here the last year and a half.

I’m having buckets of fun infusing spirits with herbs and spices, inventing tasty syrups like Thyme, Orange & Pink Peppercorn to liven up cocktails and non-alcoholic sips, and “researching” happy hour hot spots all over Seattle.

Please click Mama Knows Her Cocktails to join in the fun.


Celebrate Organic with PCC

September 18, 2011

We spent a very fun Saturday morning at Oxbow Farm in Duvall.  It was one of the featured farms on PCC’s Celebrate Organic Fall Farm Tour.  Our granddaughter Claire got to climb on a tractor, sample salads and color at PCC’s kids truck, and see tall sunflowers and fields of pumpkins.  The highlight was the seeds house, where the kids got to open pods of beans, pull sunflower seeds out of the dried heads, and best of all – eat popcorn!
