It’s the most gift giving time of the year, and one of the most special gifts I can give is something I have prepared right in my own kitchen. It could be cookies or fudge, bread or cake, dinner or breakfast. I could wrap it and deliver to your door step, or I could have […]
One of the best things about decorating this time for year, is that unless the decorations are Christmas specific, like a nativity and a Christmas tree, the decorations can stay up long after Christmas. In our house, our outdoor Christmas lights burn bright until just after Valentine’s Day. It made me want to share a […]
Well, hello there. It’s been a little while.
For those that may have missed this weekend’s facebook post, I shared this quick picture:
This is the top of one of many ornament boxes. In it is my collection of gold and red hearts. Growing up, my mom and dad always had gold hearts at the top of the […]
I spent all morning cleaning and organizing our house as L&L prepare for their first day of school tomorrow. While I was in the kitchen, I was taking down summer info from our fridge to make room for fall and school info that will be coming home. I reached for the Summer To Do list […]
On Monday, August 22nd, my dear friends Heidi, Sue and Bonnie, along with countless family members and friends hosted a fundraiser for Tersiguel’s. When Heidi had contacted me on Wednesday, August 3rd to let me know of the beginning plans, I began thinking about what I would say to every person that has helped us […]
This originally was written as a facebook post on August third. The events leading up to this post were painful, and the cuts and bruises remain fresh today. Each day is a step forward.

So, how about that heat?
You know it’s been too long when I feel like I need to lead with the weather. Weather is the most universal ground breaker, I think. We can all relate some how to too hot, too cold, too much rain, not enough rain, too much sun, too many clouds. We can […]
For a long, long time, I had an aversion to buffalo chicken wings. It’s a sad tale really, when I think about how the aversion arose in college, many hours spent at Happy Hours, and I was missing out on this classic pub grub. It’s not that I didn’t enjoy the taste or flavor, quite […]
I gotta give it you guys. You have been patient, and I appreciate it, and now your taste buds will appreciate it even more. Last week, while I was working on the summer freezer prep, in the background, my slow cooker, was just doing its thing. As soon as I got home, before I even […]
After all the freezer prep yesterday, I had very little inclination to prepare dinner. I had already been thinking about BLTs to use up some tomatoes we had. This is my easy method of cooking bacon.
You may remember this from the epic chicken tender fail:
This is just a half sheet baking pan covered in tin […]
