About Me

I'm Dana. 
I'm pleased to meet you.
And, I'm glad you're here.

Cafe D is a place to share tips,
grab a recipe or technique,
and maybe see some travel pics.

If I'm really lucky, perhaps I'll inspire you.
But, most of the time...you inspire me.

I think of blogging as a "Modern Day Tupperware Party."
And, I love hearing from you!
Whether it's a comment on the blog, facebook, or  twitter - you make me smile.

(And, I think seeing your stuff on pinterest is a real blast!)

This blog began a few years ago focusing on...
cooking, traveling, saving money - and a touch of vintage love.
I've changed, so has my blog.

That's an understatement...
I wasn't even married when I started!

I still write about cooking.
And, now there's a lot more life tossed in the mix.

I'm a newlywed and a step-mom to two amazing teenaged guys.
I'm a Christian  woman - with a lot to learn about God.
And I'm a small group leader for junior high girls
who know more about God than me some days.

I'm fascinated by retro and old fashioned living.
The photo above was taken at the Wishing Well Motel on Route 66
It was demolished later that week. 

I have the decorating bug - though you'd never know it from my home.
There are oh-so-many boxes of "treasured items" left to unpack
(New to me via eBay, Etsy, or Goodwill.)

Slowly, things are coming together.

And, yes.
We really did have Jimmy John's cater our wedding rehearsal.

I believe in butter.
And, biscuits & gravy.
Yep, I said it.

I think that time moves fast
and while you can,

Make a quick and unprocessed corn soup
in 30 minutes.

you just want 4 minute mac n cheese.

All the best,

P.S. You can also read about Why I Blame Alton Brown for my love for cooking. *grin*
