About Me

My photo
My friends call me the "grammar goddess." Really. ;-) I own a freelance writing, editing and tutoring business. Previously, I served three years as food editor for The Morning Sun in Mt. Pleasant, which kindled my interest in food writing. My other areas of expertise in writing include features, community news, architecture/construction and engraving/personalization. I have a frightening number of cookbooks and watch too many DIY, HGTV, Food Network, Cooking Channel and Antiques Roadshow (BBC and PBS versions) shows. And I tweak nearly every recipe I make.

Happy 4th of July!

We are celebrating the July 4 holiday a bit late with the family. It’s also going to be my moms’s early birthday celebration. Sadly, I won’t be there until later because I agreed to work before I knew this was planned. So hopefully the party will be going.

I’m also hoping Julie (whom my cousin Frank had the great fortune to marry!) makes the Fourth of July gelatin/cake dessert. It looks something like this and is delicious! And I’m also hoping they save me some! 
Listening to patriotic songs on YouTube today. 

Like this one from the American Revolution (though we stole it from the British).
