Life Gets in the Way

You know…sometimes life gets in the way. We have had a very busy, hectic, crazy couple of weeks. It has honestly been a whirlwind of activity and I have barely had a moment alone in the kitchen. If you are curious to see what has been going on in our life (and if you want […]

Accomplishments for All

We have had a busy couple of weeks! I went to the lovely city of Louisville, KY last week on a business trip. I had a great time, complete with making my very own glass blown ornament. Nick and my parents were able to handle the kiddos while I was gone. It was a nice […]

The Wrong Door

  Things have been a little bit crazy around here lately. This seems typical for this time of the year, doesn’t it? School events, sports events, work events, etc. Everyone schedules everything in the same month. Last night between errands and soccer practice we needed to eat dinner. I had some of my KFC gift […]

Geniune Italian – Giada De Laurentiis

  My good friend Kathy and I, along with our husbands, went to a Giada De Laurentiis book signing a couple of weeks ago. We were 4 of about 1,000 eager fans who were lucky enough to get tickets to the sold out event. We were all anxious to find out if Giada is the […]

Gourmet Magazine May 2007

Written for Paper Palate on the Well Fed Network One of the biggest complaints I hear about Gourmet magazine is that it has too many advertisements. People get frustrated at the amount of magazine space that is taken up by the ads and tend to skip reading the issues all together because of this. I […]
