This blog originated in 2020. With the advent of Covid-19, I found myself locked in my house with my three-year-old wired hair Dachshund, Twoee. She taught me a lot during that first month and stayed by my side while we jumped from one thing to another…experimenting as we went along.

The site is arranged into four categories, each indicated by a picture of Twoee on the left. After all she did inspire me.

Penne’s Pantry

Cooking came late in life to me. After spending my career in boardrooms across the United States I found that I truly loved being at home in the kitchen. Here you will find recipes, videos of food preparations, and tips on cooking in general.

Trips and Tips

I love to travel, so stories came naturally to me. Read about various encounters I had along the way through some exciting cities in Europe.

Twoee Tails

Here you will find stories about Twoee. Read about her run for presidency in 2016, her adventures with her pals, and how she got involved with Covid-19.

Writers’ Workshop

Keep up to date with the novel that I am writing…if I ever get it finished; and various other short stories.

What's in Twoee's Freezer? 2-1-2021

    Is anyone else getting tired of every time you turn on the TV someone is getting a needle stuck in their arm?  I am terrified of NEEDLES. I actually faint at the sight of them and have to ask the nurse to cover up any needles with a towel when they draw blood.

    I think everyone has fears.  Okay, some have more fears than others, but we all have at least one fear.  It’s how we handle those fears that make us who we are. My friend Julie chooses not to hike in the springtime in areas where snakes might be sunbathing.  Another friend refuses to walk anywhere near the edge of a cliff. We all deal with our fears differently and their solutions demonstrate that they are intelligent sensible folks.

    But there are times that we must face our fears head-on. Put on our big girl pants and just DO IT!

Covid is one of those times!  I hope you all got your vaccination or are soon to get it.

What's in Twoee's Freezer? Today we are featuring a new flavor that is still in pursuit of perfection.

 Miso's Milk Chocolate Hazelnut: This flavor originated in Torino, Italy and is called Gianduja Gelato. A confection made from hazelnuts ground with milk chocolate.

 (There is a limited amount of this flavor until the consistency and ingredients are perfected.  I would like your input please.)


Clara’s Chocolate Peanut Butter-if you like peanut butter cups, you’ll love this ice cream.  Three different chocolates blended together with peanut butter.  Add to that bits of peanut butter cups that melt in your mouth.

Cooper’s Caramel by the sea- If there was an ice cream to surpass Berthillon’s of Paris, this is the one.  It’s velvety caramel flavor bursts with the excitement of sea salt and teases your senses.  

Monty’s Marvelous Malt-reminiscent of the vanilla malt you had as a kid. The flavor of malt is subtle and mixes well into the richness of the cream and milk.

Barley’s butterscotch ripple- For the purest at heart who loves caramel. A blend of creamy vanilla ice cream with a thick caramel ribbon that sweetens your tongue.

Verdell’s Vanilla (As Good as it Gets!) Tahitian Vanilla beans blended with Vanilla paste give a rich vanilla taste to an extra creamy ice cream.
