Brunch Muffins

A few weeks ago, I was asked to bring muffins to a baby shower brunch for my dear friend’s daughter.

Summer Gatherings and Skirt Steak Tacos

Glancing into the backyard all that remained from our barbecue was a full heart and a deck scattered with tables and chairs like a restaurant patio. Few leftovers marked the occasion of friends gathered around tables under a stormy sky. Yes, rain. Ugh. I’m not even sure how many times we hauled cushions back and forth. Finally, […]

Summer Refuge

In May, just about the time everyone was ready to plunk their plants in the ground, we had an awful hail storm. Devastating, in fact, to anyone or any nursery with unprotected plants and Lowe’s was one of them.

Recovered Life and Juiced Greens Recipe

I still get emotional when I think about it, what life was like just two months ago and now. My brain works again. I can actively participate in conversation. Walk miles. Savor what I’m eating.

A New Year to Savor

For all the best laid plans, Christmas came to town and captured my full attention. No blog posts of Merry Christmas wishes or family photos shared on Facebook. The only photo we snapped this year was when we piled in the car in search of a Christmas tree on the 21st (yes, just four days […]

In My Kitchen ~ December 2013

In my kitchen … is the window to our backyard world. That world looks like a snow globe today with temperatures barely climbing out of single digits. The kitchen darkens as the skylights cover with snow. In my kitchen … is more than 6 dozen Gluten-Free Ginger Cookies for a cookie exchange that had to […]

D.C. Plan B

October 2nd I had the pleasure of tagging along on a business trip with my husband to Washington D.C. The plan was pretty simple, enjoy 5 days in a luxury hotel, visit museums, and dine at as many fine restaurants as possible. I had only two sites on my list, the American History Museum and […]
