This is my blog. It’s a mixture of my past and my present. The things you find here are a reflection of my life. What I do, what I make, what I read, and what I remember. Along the way, I pay tribute to my grandmother and my great-grandmother Maggie Lane and tell their stories. I remember them in the everyday things – the biscuit recipe, the cast iron skillet and the potato masher that was handed down to me. I enjoy the challenge of living a old-fashioned, traditional life in New York City. Not because everything old is always better, but because taking the time to make something good for your family is rewarding and it comes with the added bonus that it can often save you money. It’s hard to stretch those household dollars. The groceries, socks and undies for the kids, and diapers are pretty essential. So, if there is a way to make it better and cheaper, then I’m all for that!
