Well, it's official.

I've lost that loving feeling.

I've lost my bloggin mojo, after over 2 years and 10 trillion posts.

So I'm least until I get my mojo back, or get re-inspired, or something like that.

Wink and I are trying to make some pretty big life changes, so who knows--maybe I'll be back someday with inspiring photos of our dream farmhouse in the country, complete with some chickens and acres and acres of pumpkins, zinnias and sunflowers.

But for now...we're still in our little house (still unsold) in the Adirondacks. Life is still good...kiddo is thriving in college, getting ready to graduate, and Wink still loves his job more than most things. He plans to retire there...that's how much he loves it.

My health is not great...I'm not gonna lie. Being evaluated by a new neurologist for Multiple Sclerosis now...the thinking is that I've been misdiagnosed, after all this time.


But we are lucky. We are blessed. We know that.

I'm just in need of some new scenery and energy--that's all.


 You know me....I can't leave you all high and dry......check out this amazing Snickerdoodle Muffin recipe I found, and prepared recently, on comes from Culinary Concoctions by Peabody, and you can find the recipe, HERE.

I made them for some dear, dear friends who own our local movie theatre, The Strand...

Bob Card and Helen Zyma are just some of the best people you'd ever want to know;  they employed our teenage daughter throughout high school (all the popcorn she could eat!), so they must be SAINTS, right?

Anyways, I'm always telling Bob that he's too skinny, so I whipped up a batch of Snickerdoodle Muffins and delivered them to him, still warm, to fatten him up.

If you love Snickerdoodles, you'll adore these muffins, I swear on a stack of.....muffins!.................


(In case you missed the recipe link above, you can also find it, HERE)

Take care, dear loyal bloggie friends....and you never know where I might pop up again someday!




  1. Love you Leslie...You have a beautiful spirit that needs some TLC...
    The muffins look fabulous...can't wait to try them.
    We are with you every day...take care...

  2. Leslie I will miss your blog but certainly understand the need to take it easy now.

  3. Wow, Sis...MS? Big hugs to all of you! You have sure been through it,haven't you? I hate that they may have made you run all of those painful tests for the wrong reasons, and have several people I know who have been major misdiagnosed in the past few months.

    I have so enjoyed getting to know your traveling and awesome cooking/baking self through your blogs. I use it as a reference, so I have to ask. If you stop blogging, will the archived blogs still be accessible? I mean, where else can I turn to for pix of mind-blowing french pastries IN France?? And I do not want you to tell me National Geographic! =) You will just have to keep us updated on Facebook whenever possible, but until then, enjoy every day of your lives out in the great Northeast. And I am still praying for a successful sale of your home, with every little realtor bone in my body! Love you! ~~Debra

  4. JUST e-mailed you then came here to read this, should have done so reverse order! My apologies!

  5. I'll keep in touch! We still need to get together :-)

  6. Thank you SOOO much, everyone! And sister Deb, yes, this blog should stay put here, for the time being, anyways. I think as long as there's any activity on it, Blogger won't delete it.

  7. What?! Say it ain't so!

    I do miss The Strand and the Cards, but I'll miss your little corner of the blogosphere more!

    Take care, rejuvenate & come back soon! Until, then, I'll be seeing you on FB!
