Well would ya look at that…

It’s been just over a year since I last wrote here…that’s terrible!  2016 was a business & family focused year…and honestly, I’ve missed playing with my food!  😜 I didn’t spend much time trying new recipes either, but instead just kept plugging along with our usual favorites.  Sometimes that’s just the easiest route, you know?  This…

Summer Favorites…

Hello lovelies!  I’ve missed you!  I have been busy with Real Estate and with the end of the school year, which for some reason, is always nuts.  Is it that way at your house?  It’s the last week of school here, and for one kid, it’s all play…the other kid, all tests! After the Winter…

My March Madness…

Happy Spring foodie friends!  Yes, I know, if you live in Minnesota, it isn’t feeling much like it yet… Even Augie says “I’m outta here!”   You know it’s been bad when the cats want to migrate south…. It’s been a crazy ‘mad’ month for me… the hubby flew out of town twice this month…it’s tax…

Where’s Waldo?

Food, 2011

I’ve been wanting to make a photo collage of my best food moments of 2011…wondering what all that food together would look like…I did that tonight and boy, did I eat good last year!  Wow, and I’m surprised I only put on an extra 5+ pounds this past year…good eats!  Food trucks, Minnesota Food Blogger…

Carpet Picnic…..

Tonight was carpet picnic night.  Many years back, Mark & I started doing a dinner where the main “dish” was a wheel of gooey melted Brie cheese.  We would make other items to eat with, add a loaf of crunchy french bread and plop ourselves on the floor at our coffee table to watch a…
