When Matt and I were still living together, one of his/my favorite things to do was take the leftovers and create some sort of fried rice dinner. He’s made the majority of the ethnic cuisines shared here on Nevermore Lane. This one is no exception. It’s no big secret that he and I parted ways recently causing a shift in my life and changes in my living situation. As a result, my blog schedule fell to the wayside. Now that the YUMeating website has been merged and forwarded, I getting back on track with my blog schedule. [Read more…]
When I was a kid, my mother was the bread-winner in the family. My dad was battle a drug addiction problem so he wasn’t exactly present despite being right in front of us. My mother worked long hours and even though she did cook a lot from scratch, she had her moments when oven was best. One of my favorite things was the frozen pot pies. I didn’t really know then how not-so-good those little doozies were. But, they were comfort food. [Read more…]
It’s that time of year when all I want is comfort food. And my camera. And for it to stop being so freaking cold. And to find my yumeating photos for my recipes.

Since moving, my life has been nothing more than living out of boxes. It seems like a get a box or two taken care of and five more appear in their place. What makes me laugh is that I don’t really have that much stuff; I just keep moving things around and making new piles. [Read more…]
Did you really think I was going to skip out on all the yummy food posts? 😉
I know, in all fairness it HAS been a while. But, there was good reason for that. YUM eating is now here and the domain is being forwarded. Thank goodness that option exists so that all the hard work from YUM isn’t a total waste. I’m just in a different place in my life and when I started to niche out and go into the food world, I wasn’t expecting it to trigger so much. I should have just stuck with the lifestyle site I had in the first place and not listened to people who say you have to pick one thing and stick with it. Boo! (LOL) But, in the same breath, YUMeating was a WONDERFUL experience for me. It was something I shared with Mr. McConnell and kiddo. We traveled, we ate, we shared good memories. Now, that chapter in my life is over and it’s time to write the next one.
I don’t know about you, but I am missing summer just a little bit right about now. We had some serious winds and rain last week, then the weekend was filled with a bit of sunshine. It was nice. I needed that since I spent the better part of my weekend sorting through boxes full of things which I had to sort on whether I was taking it or leaving it here. I found myself leaving a lot of things here. Part because I don’t need more stuff to move and part because I would rather kiddo and her dad enjoy the things. [Read more…]
