Lack of Material

I have to apologize for the lack of posts over in this section this week. My kids just haven’t giving me much material to work with. Here’s why:   You know it is a bad sign when after naps, a 3 year old and a 5 year old come down stairs, plop on the couch…

Would you be missed?

Did anyone out there watch Grey’s Anatomy last night? Surely they are just teasing the viewers, aren’t they? I mean, seriously, if a show is named after your character, you’d think that would guarantee you some sort of job security, right? They can’t kill off Meredith. You can bet I’ll be glued to the TV…

I hope everyone enjoyed their Valentine’s Day. My husband took the day off of work and we had a nice relaxing day just hanging out at home. I had to go to the school Valentine’s Day party and I had a meeting in the afternoon, but besides that it was a nice relaxing day at…

Domestication

I have officially become domesticated. There have been little signs along the way that this transition was taking place, but I believe it is now official.

A Little Me Time

For so many people, cooking dinner is just another chore added to their long list of to-do’s during the day. I enjoy cooking dinner. Let me rephrase that… I enjoy cooking dinner if I don’t have three children under my feet bugging me to do things for them while I am trying to navigate the…

Wrapped in Comfort

   There are a few foods that I think of that I equate to the word comfort. My mom’s homemade Mac & Cheese is one.Her homemade chicken and noodles are another. Add to that her homemade spaghetti and meatballs and I am transported back to the days where home was comfort…sitting around the dinner table…

Stealing Chocolate

I cannot seem to get my mind off of the Double Layer Chocolate Cake I made this past weekend. Maybe it’s PMS. Maybe it is finally finding a chocolate cake worthy of gaining a couple of pounds. Maybe it is the fact that it is so much like the Ba Da Bing I thought I’d…
