About Me

When I started my retirement travels - the first of which was my solo overseas trip to Italy in 2009 - I wanted a way to share it with family and friends as it happened. Hence, "My Travel Journal". However I realized I wouldn't always be on a trip and wondered what to do with the blog in between times. My daughter pointed out, wisely, that travels can also include trips to the kitchen to try a new recipe, trips to visit family, trips to my neighborhood Starbucks, or a fun day trip with a friend. You're welcome to join me on any of these journeys!

P.S. I've set up separate pages for each of my major trips (see tabs above).

I recently added an "Italian Word a Day" thingie which shows up at the bottom of every page. You see the word and can click to hear it pronounced. I've been enjoying it and I think my accent is improving as time goes by.

Fudgy Chocolate Pie

Another old recipe I came across and I remember really liking it back when I used to make it but I can't guarantee I'd still think it's delicious.  Probably, though...it is, after all, chocolate.

1/2 c. butter
3/4 c. sugar
1/3 c. cocoa
1/4 c. flour
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla

Melt butter in saucepan.  Stir in sugar, cocoa and flour.  Remove from heat and beat in eggs one at a time.  Add vanilla (and nuts if desired).  P9our into greased 9" pie plate and bake 15 minutes at 350.

As I recall this came out very similar to chewy brownies.  And it certainly is simple and quick!
