I guess I should explain the title of my blog. When we were dating and had loads of free time, my now-husband Bil and I had planned to write a 'zine. (This is basically a print version of a blog, but I don't think blogs were around then. Does that date me?) Anyway, we thought long and hard for a clever name. One day, as I was making pancakes, the name came to us. For once, burning something was actually productive. I think the name is apropos, since despite being somewhat decent at cooking, I regularly mess up pancakes. The same could be said of many things I endeavor, which will probably make up most of the posts on this blog.
