Blueberry Banana Muffins and all about Dole

I adore muffins. Yes, I like them sweet.  I think secretly, we all do.  It’s still breakfast food, but it’s dessert…without trying too hard.  And, because so many muffins include fruit (like blueberries, bananas, raspberries, peaches) – it feels like we are being healthy. Oh, we are so cute, aren’t we? Truth though, we could […]

It caught me by total surprise, like I forgot it existed. Last week, on Monday and Tuesday, it was gorgeous here, short sleeve weather and I was taking […]

Good morning! Guess what today is? My first EMPTY HOUSE day in MONTHS!  That’s right, y’all…Seven is back to school, and Jon is back at work (he took yesterday off so that we could take Seven to second grade together)…and now the house is officially MINE again!  I survived! Thank the good sweet Lord.  It […]
