birthday cake

It’s Mom’s birthday. What do you get a woman who’s suffering with dementia? Material gifts just don’t matter anymore. I wanted to give her something that was a gift for her senses… and her memory. Pineapple Upside Down Cake Of course! She made that for us countless time growing up. It’s so pretty. Caramelized goodness. […]

smashed taters

It’s Sunday night and admittedly don’t have any revolutionary recipes to offer. I just want to marvel at the taters I bought today at the grocers. It was a bag of lil’ taters….tri-colored taters! Blue. Red. Yellow. Little. Tender. I had to have them. I took them home and boiled them until they were smashable  […]

I was having a ‘Martha Stewart’ day yesterday. Literally. After a week of playing with my girlfriends while Hubby was gone topped by the holiday, I did very little kitchen time. I couldn’t wait to get back to normal and start cooking and blogging again. While I was looking for a side dish to go […]

I’m about to give you a gift. You can thank me later. HE hasn’t stopped thanking me for the past two hours. HE is out on a walk right now and I know… HE will thank me one more time when he gets home. This is my post-fourth-of-July celebration. I didn’t want any more hot […]

I like weird things. Sometimes it works when it comes to food and recipes. It didn’t always work when it came to boyfriends!   It’s the artist in me….seeking the unusual and playing with the different. I had a lunch today with two of my favorite young mothers. I love having them and their wee […]

Hubby’s out of town. When the cat’s away…the mice will… Let’s start over. I had a chance last night to spend an evening with 5 of my dear friends from the last 15 years. A long overdue reunion. It all started with the intentions of gathering at a local vineyard. We didn’t check to see whether the vineyard […]

strawberry salad

I love strawberries. Shortcake, ice cream, jam….just plain with sugar or whipping cream. I’m only starting to explore the deliciousness of strawberries and combining them with different flavors. One of our local restaurants makes the BEST strawberry salad combining the flavors of strawberries, fresh spinach, young lettuce, red onion, feta cheese and toasted almonds. Yum. […]

I did it! I attended my first Weight Watcher’s meeting today! Well, it’s not actually my first – just my first this year. I went through the Weight Watchers program two years ago and lost 35 lbs! This time it’s just maintenance which we all need from time to time. I love Weight Watchers and […]

It’s Monday and I’m on a diet. Seriously. Too many vacations. Too many holidays. Too many celebrations. And this food blog writing thing…. Geez! This week I’m starting WeightWatchers…again. That’s not to say I’m not going to stop blogging about gooey, sticky things…I’ll just have to give them away.   Until then, we’re having mango […]

It’s Friday and I sit resting from a fun-filled, busy week. I’m melancholy though for as fun as the week was – I have to say goodbye to my daughters as they return back to their homes out of state. The highlight of the week was the family cookout and the highlight of the cookout […]
