PEOPLE & ANIMALS
Many parts of our site is based on real names of real people and real pets that have been a part of our life and have made fond memories for us.
******Rupid the frog*******
Rupid was an actual pet frog of mine (Pam's) when I was a young child. Rupid was a special pet that was a part of my daily life. I loved frogs as a child and still love frogs as a grown woman. Rupid also had a friend frog that I named Drupid. Rupid was a boy and Drupid was a girl. Rupid was a wild frog of coarse but I always found him roaming around the flower beds. There were many frogs outside of coarse but Rupid had a strange black markings under his neck that looked like an declination point. This is how I always knew that it was Rupid my frog. Ah those days of being a child.... how the memories are coming back to me.
******Leroy the fish*******
Leroy the fish was a actual fish..... a huge bass to be exact that lived under the pier on the lake where I (Pam) use to live in Jacksonville Florida. Leroy was about a 12 pounder and I feed the brim under the pier all the time which attracted Leroy. When I did....Big bad Leroy would come up and have a snack. Leroy was a pet and I made sure that everyone knew not to eat him if they caught him. Leroy was big and bad and fast...... but I loved him anyway. He patrolled the area every day. He became so use to seeing me each day that he would come right up to me. A very unusual site to see.
We witnessed Leroy sneak up under a new hatching of baby ducks one day and to our surprise he scooped up one in his mouth and ate it!!!! I nearly passed out because I loved my ducks too. That's why we called him big bad Leroy.
*******Glenda the duck*******
Glenda the duck was a duck that lived on the lake that we feed bread sometimes. She loved scrambled eggs as well so on occasion I was known to cook her up a nice breakfast of scrambled eggs and toast. Well Glenda started showing up each and every day at breakfast time. If I (Pam) did not show up to feed her....well Glenda would come looking for me. In hot Florida the doors and windows were left open most of the time which gave Glenda the best opportunity to come looking for her Pam. Early one morning I forgot to go feed Glenda and went on to the bathroom and started taking a nice shower so I could head off to work. Well Glenda the duck went looking for me. Right in the middle of my shower a little Glenda ducks head popped up around the shower curtain. Quackkkk Quackkk as if she was saying...thereeeee youuuu areeee! It absolutely scared me to death! Naturally she loves water so the running water of the shower didn't faze her at all. To my suprise she hopped in the flow of the sprinckling water and started fluffing her featers and quacking away. I thought to myself.... oh my gosh I've got a duck taking a shower with me! hahahaha! From then on Glenda would show up quacking in every room of the house when ever the opportunity would arise. We really had to learn to close the doors when we knew she was around.
*******Maybell the cow*******
We never had a cow as a pet...but we named our sweet loving mascot of the "Cookin' With Coffee" section -In Loving Memory of my sweet loving Grandmother who's name was May Bell Leonard. The sweetest, most perfect grandmother any person could ever ask for. We all miss her so very much.
Sheba the cat is my Mother's Siamese cat. She is sly and sassy and mean!
ha ha ha ha ha The prime example of what a Siamese cat is all about.
WHY COFFEE, TEA & COCOA
Coffee, tea or cocoa starts out each and every one of our day's. It also ends each and every one of our day's. So it was only natural that we based a section of our website on & around hot & cold drinks. As a young girl I always wanted my very own Tea House or Coffee Shop....but as fate would have it I never did get to open my own little drink shop of my very own. So as an adult- as close as I could get to it was to design a neat website with pretty pictures of coffee and tea......and list all of my recipes that I collected over the years.
We both absolutely love to cook so we have collected up many many recipes from friends & family so we decided to put them all on our website and share them with everyone.
I myself am from the South (Alabama to be exact) so much of my recipes are southern style recipes. Although I must say that I lived for several years in Florida where the cooking styles are a mix & mingle of culture so I did pick up a bit of a different style of cooking while living there for so many years. So alot of these recipes are my very own that I've tweaked to be my own style.
Stephen is from Australia & they do not celebrate Halloween ...so since he lives in the US now.. he has had to learn all about our American triditions. Halloween is one of my favorite times of the year so for fun I just couldn't pass up the opportunity to make a Spooky section of our website! We put tuns of spooky party recipes in along with lots of decorating ideas and many links to our favorite Halloween websites. I do not see Halloween as being evil and I do not celebrate it as evil either. Halloween is all in fun and fun is what I make it.
