The Case of the Invisible Man

It was three o clock in the afternoon and the sun was shining through the window on this calm Saturday. Outside looked freezing and I watched the trees slightly billowing in the breeze. In an instant, a cold wind came whistling down the hill and slightly shook the 21st century style, two story house. In the tastefully furnished ground floor kitchen the two eldest children were pleasantly heard laughing in the next room enjoying a relaxing game of Monopoly.

Then a scream shattered the tranqulity as Emma, 4 years of age, came running into the kitchen with the look of death plastered across her face. I knew somebody had died... could it be murdered on the orient? No, we were in the North West, not the East. Phew!

"Mom, my best friend, the invisible man is dead. He was eaten by a werewolf and his heart has stopped beeping!" she tells me as giant tears swell up her eyes, "He was so nice and I really liked him."

"I am so sorry, Emma" pulling my best motherly symatheic voice, "what shall we do now?"

"Well," she says looking at me with those BIG blue eyes presenting a sense of hope for the loss of her dear friend, "I think we should have a funeral for him and maybe invite his family".

I agree with her, as the death of the invisible man is in the same category as a Shakespearean tragedy in this household. I tell her "lets get started".

She then looks at me with confusion and explains, "well how are we going to find him? His heart isn't going to beep and let us know where he is and he is an INVISIBLE man".

And with that, the mystery of the invisible man will never be solved as we cannot seem to locate his exact whereabouts.

RIP - Invisible Man -Wherever you May be!

Hair Callick or Cowlick


SO a dear friend and I were talking (who will remain nameless, but anybody have to say focaccia?) and I was telling her how Audrey could NEVER have bangs because she has this horrible "Cow Lick". This woman, who is still anonymous, starts laughing at me and says it is "Callick". I was like "no" it is "cowlick"so I called my dad and he reconfirmed her grammar. Being TOTALLY embarrassed (as I usually am when I misspronounce a word... what was that last one? Oh yeah, I thought it was kick in the "grown", but it is "groin"), so I didn't question her. I also then went home and told the story to my husband who agreed with her and laughed at me. I then decided the proper thing to do was to google it and this is where I AM RIGHT! Here you go, all those callick lovers...

The term you want is actually “cowlick”,…


I am posting some of my classic recipe copy cats that I have improved and worked on...

Tito's Taco Salsa Recipe


8 roma tomatoes
1.5 small pickled jalapenos
One pickled carrot from the jalapeno can
One thin slice of white onion
Juice from 1/4 lime
about a tsp of salt
ten or so dashes of pepper (too much overpowers the other flavors)

I use my chop wizard and chop it all up into very small squares... then the secret is that you have to let it sit in the fridge for 24 hours.

Shredded Beef for Burritos


2 pounds roast beef
3 cans Coke (NOT diet, big suprise)
1/4 c. brown sugar
dash garlic salt
1/4 c. water
1 can sliced green chilies
3/4 can RED enchilada sauce (I used Old El Paso brand, medium spiciness)
1 c. brown sugar

Throw it all in the crock potfor about 4 to 6 hours



1 c. uncooked rice
1 tsp. butter or margarine
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp. freshly squeezed lime juice
1 can (15 oz) chicken broth
1 cup water
1 Tbsp. freshly squeezed lime juice

5 Lies that Nerium Doesn't Tell you about The Brand Partners

Yes, it is true. I have fallen in love with something else besides my kids, my husband, taco bell, and Disneyland. It is called Nerium and is the most amazing wrinkle magician in a box which I have ever had the pleasure of coming into contact with in my 30's. I tried it for 5 days and I knew with every fiber of my being that I needed this cream as much as it needed me. When I went into the bathroom each evening to dampen my face and apply 4-5 pumps I was like that of a weary housewife seeing a Diet Coke first thing in the morning. I haven't felt this way about something since being able to stay up to midnight for the pre-taped ball drop in Time Square with Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve (B.S. – Before Seacrest).

So when I found this Nerium, I face-booked and Instagrammed. I then got my Twitter account up and running because I had to shout from the roof top that THIS simple antidote  for those lines brought on by my children conundrums and the bags brought on by wandering …
