It took a decade or so to figure out the tag line or even a summary of Sex'n'Fries. 

Yes, it took me over a decade to figure this out: "Aging gracefully as a hot mess"

The SexnFries blog started in 2009, with this description. I still love it!

Who? We are just like those people in the picture. BUT...we are older, lumpier, have more stretch marks, don't sit in tubs with our clothes on or with our friends. We have families, pets, lives...we have  tears and laughter and most of it makes us pee a little. We have bad hair days and when we don't we get ourselves out  so someone can see it. We dance, sing and with enough alcohol we might even yodel. We have seen things, forgot things and wish for more things.  We eat too much, go on diets, lift weights..stop and repeat. (usually on Monday). We age every day without fail, we try to stay sexy through it all.

We get a dose of Sex and Fries

We all have a sexy side, a wild side, a comfort food- stuffing 'who gives a f'ck' moment or two. We have in us, a feminist stripper with a waffling personality that possibly combines a twenty year old farmer's daughter and an over protective grandmother. Our self esteem polishes our sexiness and yet gives us too many opportunities to hide and cry. Here we come to a place in life, whether it is your forties, fifties or your twenties, there are always changing times in your life; bringing us to eating the greasy trans fat then complaining about our fat thighs and bloating.

Yes, I am woman, hear me roar but stick around to see me weep!

We are aging and laughing about it have a better idea?

This blog is about the funny side of getting older, staying sane and dealing with life. We laugh, we cry and we tell it like it is. We deal with serious crap and get to the lighter side quite often but it all leads to sex and fries.


Enjoy a bit of fun!


Sorry if you were looking for something dirty but there is dirtier stuff on prime time TV. 

Carole (recipe hoarder) 1948-2016
Carole Anna was a tortured soul. Ok... let's not do the dramatic. She was a joyous loving, caring person. This is when I hear her telling me 'stop it' which happened often. 
My best friend, my mentor even if she was a shit. My mom, the only person that I took for granted to be there, that I never imagined would ever be gone. Reality did not elude me, parents are to die before their kids, you don't want it the other way. BUT, it  still stings. 
Although this site is dedicated to cooking for the lost, it is actually for those who have lost. 
Take the memory of those you have lost and cook those memories and turn them into a tasty dish, then share with us....
still I can hear her...'stop it'.
