Let Me Tell You About Betty

Betty Brink has lived her life in many different stages, wearing many different hats. She attended 3 separate colleges, and was eventually awarded an MBA on her 40th birthday. She has lived in four different states and, in her own words, has "worked every job in the history of man, except the oldest profession." She loves reading, writing, making soap, making lotion, cooking, playing music and singing. Currently, she's living the dream, feasting on each and every now moment in southern California.

  • DSC 1479Sometimes, it all comes down to a few basic ingredients.  It's not always about the most exotic spices, or the gourmet sauce, or the exotic type of fish from remote island waters.  Don't get me wrong, I love nothing more than discovering new and exciting taste sensations.  But pork roast and potatoes can be just as satisfying.

    I grew up on routine, fairly bland dishes.  After salt and pepper, there were not many other spices to be found in my mother's kitchen.  I learned about seasoning, sauces, and meats other than beef and pork as I grew up and interacted with different families and with different cultures.

    Each new day brings its share of joys, challenges, opportunities and motivations.  This personal truth smacked me in the face earlier this year as I was lying in the hospital two days after having had a major operation.  My surgeon stood by my bedside and told me quite frankly that I could either make some life changes and lose some weight, or we could meet to do this surgery about every two years!  It's not like I was unaware that I was overweight before that day, but my blood work always came back in the normal ranges and I felt good. Well, good except for the back pain that had started three years ago.  I was not motivated to do the actual work necessary to lose weight until that moment.

  • Soap

    A few weeks ago, I had the honor of being asked to write a guest blog for my friend Indy Quillen.  I was introduced to Indy through a mutual friend of ours, also a writer, Ann Young.  Indy had seen from my website that I make my own soap and she wanted me to write something for the DIY section of her blog. You can read the guest blog here.

    Whenever I hear that expression, 'no pain, no gain,' it's like fingernails on the chalkboard.  Or, for those of you who grew up after slate chalkboards were obsolete, it would be like Carrie Underwood singing Led Zeppelin: it's just wrong.  For me, there is something essentially wrong with the concept that pain is a prerequisite for good.
