While trolling through, I saw a beautiful home in Truckee (the less expensive neighbor of Incline) with incredible views of Donner Lake. The beautiful house was $625,000. Obviously this is out of my budget.

There are obviously less expensive houses there, but the pretty ones seem to start at $600K.

The house above is listed at $450,000, 1440sf, 3/2 and is in Incline Village. Small but cute. It has no garage.

Right now I'm stuck. I have spent the last three weeks walking around with butterflies in my stomach wondering whether I should simply move to Incline or first check out two other locations in Utah and Montana. Houses in Midway, Utah and Livingston, Montana are less expensive. This house, for instance, is located in Midway and listed at $318,000 for 3,700sf. Huge! But they are not in the mountains, they are in a valley surrounded by mountains. On the other hand, they get snow!

I am afraid of making a mistake, of choosing the wrong place. What if I can't find a job in Incline/Truckee? Of course, I could say the say for Montana and Utah. However, I can't stay here forever, at some point I'll have to move forward.

Dinner with Julia

What do Ina Garten and Martha Stewart have in common? Both women describe cooking through Julia Child’s Mastering the Art of French Cooking when they were young as foundation to learning to cook.
Julia Child is an inspiration to most home cooks of a certain age. I found her so inspiring that at one time, I had all of her cookbooks, including a first edition of Mastering the Art of French Cooking, and had read almost every biography written about her, My Life in France, being my favorite. And yet! I confess that until this week, my cooking adventures in Mastering were limited to her omelet recipe, her iconic recipes for onion soup and Beef Bourguignon.
When the Food52 Cookbook Club on Facebook chose Mastering as its cookbook for the month, I jumped at the chance to finally use Julia’s first cookbook for its intended purpose.
I decided to start with something easy, a poached egg. I purchased the best organic eggs I could afford, read the recipe several times, and began. After I’d tur…

Collard Greens with White Beans - A Vegetarian Take on a Classic

Could a vegetarian version of collard greens ever compete with the traditional goodness of collard greens cooked with a smoked ham hock?

I was skeptical until I made this recipe. It is every bit as delicious. Taking the place of the ham hock is the rind of parmesan or other hard cheese. I keep a small plastic bag of cheese rinds in the freezer, they are the perfect flavor enhancer of stocks and soups, and now collard greens.

Similar recipes call for dried beans, but sine I live 10,400 feet above sea level, dried beans are always a challenge unless I'm using a pressure cooker. For this recipe, I opted for canned beans and am just as happy as can be.

This recipe is quick, easy, delicious, and so rich and satisfying a bowlful with a slice of garlicky olive oil toasted bread makes the perfect week night dinner. It is also a satisfying side dish.

Let's get cooking!

Open to the Sprit is like reading a letter from a friend. McKnight writes a very accessible introduction to the Holy Spirit and its role in our spiritual life. McKnight uses several stories from his life and others to share how the Holy Spirit consoles and deepens our daily spiritual walk.
