— June 29, 2017

I don’t want to be the one to put pressure on you but…did you know that it is the last weekend in June already? You might still be trying to dig out of the piles of stuff that grew around you as spring turned to early summer while you were busy switching gears…


fresh grapefruit in a jar

— April 10, 2017

One of my favorite treats is purchasing a jar of grapefruit. It is so tender and sweet, and I love to buy the jar with three different colors of grapefruit if I can find it. You eat with your eyes ya know. But that jarred treat also comes with a price tag. I can’t remember the…


brown sugar fried sweet potatoes

— April 05, 2017

My husband will be glad that he missed out on this for lunch because this is not lunch food in his eyes. But when I looked in the fridge to see what I should make myself for lunch today, a baked sweet potato waved at me. Ahhh…I knew what was for lunch. Fried…


easy flavored coffee creamer

— April 02, 2017

I am still trying to perfect my homemade coffee creamer. It’s a tricky balance of creaminess to sweetness and flavor and I don’t have it balanced yet. The other day my mind decided to cheat a bit and I am glad it did. This is an easy way to skip some of the…

— March 01, 2017

We recently had our first adventure with the Boy Scout’s Pinewood Derby Race. I am convinced that the Pinewood Derby is more for the dads than for the kids.

italian style meatballs

— June 16, 2016

Meatballs. Homemade meatballs. There is nothing like them. Hot, cold, sauced, naked, spiced, simple, trendy, big or little, there is nothing like a homemade meatball. They are a super easy food to whip up ahead of time and freeze for a night when you need a good meal, fast. You can also change…


cheeseburger salad

— June 02, 2016

Bear with me. Or is it bare with me. It’s early in the morning while I am writing and I forgot which choice of spelling to use, which…I find to be quite funny. Or awkward. So, I Googled it and looked up the difference. There is a significant difference, which is even funnier….

— April 11, 2016

This is a very, very, very, very, very exciting post for me! (dork alert) Yes, the burger and wedge salad for dinner were “that good” but more than that, it is the first foodie post that I am doing using my new Photoshop program! Woo-hoo people!! I have a super long way to…


BBQ Spice Rub Burgers

— February 22, 2016

What’s in your spice cabinet? Mine is pretty full because I have a love affair with the Milwaukee Spice House and they are pretty much a safe bet for me for any gifting moment that comes up and they are always on my wish list. But…despite all of those fabulous spices, I had…
