When you have four children, it is really fun to spend time with each of them individually. I have enjoyed doing this at every stage of their lives but I find that now that I have two in college, those moments together have become even more special.  Recently, I enjoyed a great meal at Elevage with […]


This Weekday Supper recipe was born out of desperation, not creativity. Most moms and many dads can relate – every once in a while, we let our kids sign up for too many things. They love the school sports but they also signed up for the recreational team. Yep, it was one of those nights […]


I don’t know about you, but at our home, we have week’s that it is go, go go. As much as we try not to overlap sports, it never fails — at some point in the year, we have two sports simultaneously. And of course that means running from one field to the other. Since […]


I love tapas! I can honestly say that I am one of those people that can enjoy small bites more than a large meal.  This weekend, Ron and I have done something that we don’t do enough, we have spent the weekend at the  Epicurean Hotel, right here in Tampa Bay. It is a new hotel […]

Friday evenings at our home are made for relaxing and chilling with a great drink and perhaps some Avocado Hummus or White Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Craisin Cookies.  I recently read Recipe for Joy and knew that I just couldn’t wait to try a Pomegranate Cocktail.  I especially love it because we can make the alcoholic version […]


Have you ever tasted a cookie that makes you smile?  Is it the cookie or is it memories that cookie evokes? Have you ever tried Happy Birthday Thumbprint Cookies?  I bet they would make you smile.  It’s what they do to me.  They make me smile, happy and feel loved. What could be so special […]

Are you up for the challenge?  You know the kind of challenge I am talking about, right?  That one food item that you love but you find it too difficult to try at home.   For me, that means baking, especially baking bread.  But there is this one bread that I crave more often than […]

There is something about Baby and Wedding Showers.  Is it the waiting, is it the anticipation, is it that it feels like a new beginning?  It’s hard to put our finger on it but there is something just so exciting.   I love being part of any type of Shower and was so excited when […]
