A Flood of Memories

  One of my fondest memories from growing up was the whole process of choosing and decorating the Christmas tree. If my memory serves me correctly, we would always go out to a Christmas tree farm. I vaguely remember my sister Kathy always getting the final say on which Christmas tree we got to bring […]

Soup Convert

  I have never considered myself to be a soup person. Given the option of soup or salad, salad would always be my choice. Soup seemed like a side item…not something that could be used for the main course. Well, I was not a soup person and now I know why. I was not eating […]

Adopt a Food Blogger – A Blogging Event

  A little under a year ago I started this blog, Dine and Dish. Just a couple of months prior to starting my blog, I clearly remember sitting around with a group of girlfriends and talking about blogging. We just did not get it. "What is the point of blogging?" we asked? I could understand […]

Anticipation

Pumpkin pie, frosted sugar cookies, delicious rolls, roasted turkey, etc. I love the hearty food of the season. The problem is, I […]

Oh Kelly!

"Middle children can feel forgotten or overlooked because of the attention or demands of either the firstborns or the lastborns. Some of these children never seem to find their place in the social order, and they try to rebel or misbehave in order to draw attention to themselves."   Kelly is my middle child. Kelly […]

Risk Taker

  I’ll admit… I am not a risk taker. Sky diving sounds terrifying to me. Swimming with sharks? No thank you! Stock market day trading? I would probably have a heart attack with all the stress that would cause me. Nope…risk taking is not my thing. My kind of risk and about as adventurous as […]
