Over 10 years ago I started a blog titled Miss Messy Crocker. Now you might wonder how that name came about, knowing my past life of painting and what could it possibly mean in my jewelry creations. Well it was a tag given to me by my late husband Mike. You see, we had a match made in heaven. I loved to cook, but hated to clean, and he would jump in and clean up after I made the meal. See; a match made in heaven. Here it comes....he would always tell people that I was the best cook, but in doing so, I would dirty every pan, bowl and utensil in the kitchen, so he penned me Miss Messy Crocker. As this blog was designed to showcase my works of art, my travels, favorite recipes, family and life in general, I just thought it was appropriate at the time.
Now that he is gone, I have decided to ressurect the blog, bring you a few of the past posts which were the fans favorites, and also share my work, how to's, recipes and travels of today. I hope you enjoy the journey as much as I enjoy making it.
Here is my all time most viewed post from the past, October 2010.
I decided on a large pot of soup that I can be enjoyed today and warmed and eaten tomorrow for lunch. I am sure it will leave me feeling very cozy inside. Here is my recipe which is very simple and quick. I hope you enjoy!
As I am a 'snowbird' I have already migrated to Florida for the winter and one immediately thinks, warm, sunshine, palm trees. Well today isn't the norm. Seems a cold front has followed me south and it is very chilly, windy and down right cold here today. So I thought it was the perfect time to reprise my recipe for warm potato soup. It's what's for dinner today. Hope you enjoy it as much as my family does.
I hope you enjoyed this trip back in time. So make a big pot, sit down and check out how I upcycle silverware https://www.kpughdesigns.com
