Eat. Live. Be. Week 2 Update (Recipe: Crispy Oven Roast Chicken)

Snow Day

One of my very first posts many moons ago on Dine & Dish was about how I don’t “do” snow. I’m not a fan. I think it’s pretty and all, but I’d rather sit in by the fire, snuggled up with a good book, looking out on it falling gently on the trees rather than…

Share Our Strength Progressive Dinner (Recipe: Potato Rolls)

It is frigid outside. The kind of frigid where you just want to curl up in your favorite fluffy slipper socks and PJ’s, the biggest blanket you can find and hibernate for the day, getting lost in a good book. Add to that putting on a  pot of my favorite comfort food on the stove…

I am a dessert girl. If you didn’t know that already, just take a look at my thighs and you’ll easily notice that desserts and I spend a lot of time together. What can I say… I like something sweet. Even if I am stuffed full after dinner, I can always find space for dessert….

Dinner Chaos (Recipe: Paula Deen’s Skillet Ravioli)

When you are a mom, especially with a curious and very busy toddler on your hands, turning your back for just a few minutes can lead to lots of extra work for you. This is a picture of Leah after she decided to eat a Red Crayola Marker (thankfully non-toxic) for dinner while I was…

Summertime Memories (Recipe: Cherry Chocolate Float)

Summertime… when the living is easy. Or at least it was when I was a kid. I have fond memories of playing Red Rover, having dance contests to politically incorrect songs, working lemonade and brownie stands on 30th Drive, playing Wonder Woman in my underoos. Life was easy and carefree. As I got older, playing…

The Prepared Mama (Recipe – Turkey Black Bean Burgers)

The other day, I was sitting in a room full of moms, when a lady came in with a screaming toddler. He had cut his big toe something awful and needed a band-aid. In that room full of moms, I was able to open my purse and pull out a first aid kit with band-aids….
