About Me

My photo
I live on 6 deeply wooded acres in the boonies of Middleville, MI. I'm married to an amazing man, Brian. He's pretty much the best thing that has ever happened to me. I'm a big animal lover. I have 5 cats; Bella (6), Cognac (3), Georgia (3), Maggie (2), & Auggie (8-9mos.) We recently lost our kittens, Aesop & Amelia, to a battle with Feline Leukemia. I feel the need to mention them. They were amazing beings that showed unconditional love like no other cats I've had. I also have Cheech (9) that I'm fostering. We have two puppies; Charlie & Henry. Having a blast! I'm a dabbler in photography, photo shop, & crafts. I'm kind of a bookworm/nerd/geek. Yes, I have read the Twilight Series. No, I'm not obsessed. I love Shakespeare, Nathaniel Hawthorne, C.S. Lewis, and L. Frank Baum - among others, obviously.

I Will Never Buy Pasta Salad Again

This weekend, I thought I'd take another whack at this pasta recipe that my cousin, Addie, gave me. My first attempt had failed. I tweaked the recipe and was pleasantly surprised.

Feta Cheese
Cheddar Cheese
Parmesan Cheese
Italian Dressing
Small Tomatoes

As the pasta was boiling, I chopped up the tomatoes and cheddar cheese (cheese not pictured).


When the pasta was done, I drained it and rinsed it in cool water. Then I combined all of the ingredients.



After a taste test, I felt that it was a little too zesty, so, I added a little bit of ranch dressing to make it creamier. It was amazing.


  1. Hi- I saved your link. I love your photo skills! Good picture of Brian, too. So glad you two are happy! I love tuxedo cats--good luck! Sounds like a great but crazy trip to the UP. I've only been over that bridge once, and it was foggy winter and I couldn't see anything.
    Have fun with your house!
