Blogging

I was reading an article on BlogHer the other day about how blogging has now become a mainstream activity for women. I certainly believe this. It seems like everytime I turn around I see a new blog pop up somewhere. Especially in the food blog world… there are so many talented women and men contributing […]

Cheddar Bacon Wrapped Hamburgers

When I was a young girl, I did not like to eat anything messy. Hamburgers were condiment free. I couldn’t stand Barbecue because of the mess it made all over your hands, face and clothes. I ate my ice cream only out of bowls… not out of cones because I hated to have melting ice […]

Perspective

Our stimulus check arrived in the mail yesterday…. exactly 10 minutes before our mini van decided it knew exactly what we should do with that money, and sputtered and died. Is that not Murphy’s Law or what? We bought our van new in 2003 and have not had to take it in to the shop […]

Stains

I am always warning my kids not to spill things… “Don’t spill that… chocolate stains”. So, many times I’ll get the question asked of me by my kiddos, “Mommy, does this stain?”.

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 […]

Pet Peeve

I try not to let too many things get to me… really I don’t, but sometimes people just push a button one too many times and I get annoyed enough to say something. I will probably get reamed for this, and that is fine, but if I see one more person flaming someone else about […]

Neighbors

I know I often complain about being stuck in the Midwest and I long for being a living part of the pages of Coastal Living, but I will say this… we live in a great neighborhood. This weekend has been full of food, friends and fun. Friday night we went to a block party across […]

Bowl Appeal

We went to a block party last night and the instructions were to bring something to grill and a side to share. The party started at 5:30pm and at 4:30pm I was still engrossed in work and it dawned on me that I hadn’t made a side dish yet. With a trip to the grocery […]
