This is the latest email I received from Amazon.

Is it sad that all my recent Amazon activities include:

  • buying local flavor cookbooks
  • buying sourdough cookbooks
  • researching canning

I think it’s funny, but I guess they think I need this Canning for Dummies? :) At least it’s only $10!


*Still sick here. I had an egg and some more saltines for breakfast, but can’t even stomach the thought of having the soup I brought for lunch. So…it’s more saltines, the last of my gatorade, and some water. I talked to Nick’s dad and, while he’s feeling a bit better now, he’s still not eating much either.

I hate this feeling! I’m SO hungry, but nothing sounds good and eating anything but saltines just makes me feel even worse. :\

Hoping I feel good enough to have some real dinner tonight.


What’s your latest obsession?

Mine are definitely:

  • Spring foods
  • My farmer’s market
  • Dresses
  • Anything with sourdough


  1. Sorry you aren’t feeling better, lady.

  2. My latest obsession is vegetarian/vegan cooking and sugar free dishes.

    Hope you feel better. I just ate some pasta and still have that hungry yet sick feeling.

  3. OMG Amazon knows me too well too! Today I got a bunch of deals on shredded coconut–how perfect for me!

  8. Could you do a canning post at some point? I’m totally fascinated by it but also very overwhelmed (I guess I need the For Dummies book!). Sorry you are still feeling sick!

  9. That is a riot! Well, it never hurts to ask or to make suggestions, right? I hope you start feeling like yourself soon. I hate not having an appetite. I love food!

    I am currently obsessed with baking with tofu. Not sure why? My recipes end up being vegan, even though I am not. I guess I just find it interesting?
