R is for…

Ribs The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. So says my Grandmother. She’s a smart woman, as well as a fantastic cook and baker. My grandparents were farmers next to the sea who raised 8 children. Aside from flour and sugar not much was bought at a grocery store. They raised their own livestock, grew […]

Q is for…

Quenched Thunder roars in the distance. The naked tree branches swoosh about as a gust of wind blows through the yard. Dried leaves swirl in eddies across the sandstone path and come to rest, though briefly, at the base of the cedar hedge.  The pitter patter of raindrops approach. Faint drops make their way across […]

P is for…

Pinched & Pulled I’ve written a P is for Pain post previously. I could go on and on about the various kinds of pain there are, the ones I like and the ones I don’t like. Instead, I thought I’d show you how I enjoyed my pain today.       Click below to see who else […]

I am lucky to still have some unopened product as I purchased extra when I found out they were closing up shop. A search today found that the person […]

L is for…

Lavender This is the first post for my new feature, Tasty Tuesday. Originally I called it Noshes & Nibbles when I set out my goals for the year but the name didn’t feel quite right. I was inspired to start this feature by my love of food, Jolynn Raymond’s Sexy Recipes, and a book I received […]

K is for…

My real name What? That doesn’t start with K, you say? True. The title doesn’t but my real name does. For those of you who have been around longer than the StellaKiink blog you may remember when I started with CouthPisces and was just me, Kelly.  I used to use my real name back then, […]
