Child Labor (Recipe: Oven Baked Stuffed Squash Boats)

When I was growing up, I was convinced that the only reason my parents had me was to be their servant.

Why Bother Blogging? (Recipe – Italian Style Rice & Beans)

I just returned from the beautiful Canyons Resort in Park City, UT where I was fortunate enough to attend the first annual Evo ’10 Conference (Foodies – I know you want to think that Evo has something to do with Extra Virgin Olive Oil, but it is really The Evolution of Women in Social Media). […]

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 […]

Our school cafeteria had the best food. Poor Boy sandwiches that I have never had anything compare to. Chicken Supreme that was too good to […]
