Blending In (and Monterrey Spinach Artichoke Dip)

I have always been one of those people who blends in pretty easily. I don’t stand out in a crowd with my looks or personality. In high school, I wasn’t one of the most popular people, but I also wasn’t in the least popular group either. I was just kind of average, moving along happy […]

In The Groove

I admit… I was torn to see school start this year. It felt like the summer just flew by. Maybe that is something all moms say once they have kids in school, but I truly feel like summer was gone in a blink. As sad I am to see school back in session, I am […]

A Matter of Taste

I am a very visual person. I love to have recipes with photographs… it makes the recipe that much more tempting and desirable. Often times, I will be flipping through a magazine and will fall in love with a photo of a recipe, only to take a look at the recipe and realize that I […]

Speaking Of Food Snobs…

Picture this… three women sitting around a table, enjoying some wine and craving guacamole and chips. I mean, really craving… not just wishing that we had some. C-R-A-V-I-N-G. This was my friends Sara, Kathy and I a few months ago. Sara’s husband was always the guacamole maker… he makes some of the yummiest guac I […]
