Irresistible Peanut Butter Cookies…and a Giveaway

jif-cookies

Imagine opening your email one day, and having JIF, the Peanut Butter gurus, as YOU to make their peanut butter cookie recipe. Because they think it’s the best, and they just kind of want YOUR opinion. Because they think you matter, (How did they get my email address, I wondered? Who am I?) I blinked […]

Sailing the Carnival Sunshine…Dining

carnival-sunshine-1

A couple of weeks ago, my little family and I boarded the beautiful (and totally made over) Carnival Sunshine.  The Carnival Sunshine is a complete and utterly transformed ship from it’s original status as the Destiny.  A massive undertaking, the Destiny spent only a few short weeks (about 15!) being gutted, redesigned, built on to, […]

Brick Grilled Chicken with Cola Sauce

There’s still time to grill. The days are crisper, but the grill is hot and ready and you should be minding it.  It’s football season, it’s leaves on the ground season, it’s almost time to put on a parka season. Don’t let the time get away from you.  Grill.  Do it. Grill.  And start with […]

Buffalo Chicken Pizza Macaroni and Cheese…and a Giveaway

Casual Entertaining. I’m a huge fan of anything that says CASUAL.  And entertaining.  So, when I was challenged by Dreamfields to create a recipe using their Elbow Macaroni with a Casual Entertaining theme, my mind raced and the excitement kept me up nights. Literally.  Dreams of what to do with macaroni kept me awake for […]

Seattle…Food, Fun, and Krusteaz

A week or two ago, I jetted off to Seattle, Washington, courtesy of Krusteaz, for the IFBC Conference. Seattle is very far away. Airplanes get up early in the morning for flights to Seattle.  But, let me be clear…it is a city worth getting out of bed for. Clean and proper, hip, laid back, and […]

Flatbread Pizza with Fig, Pears and Arugula

flatbread-fig-pear-1

Flatbread is everywhere these days.  Every. Where.  Go to any restaurant and you are likely to see it pop up as an appetizer, possibly even the main course. It’s good stuff. It’s also very easy. So adaptable.  So family friendly.  If the kids just want cheese, you can give them cheese.  If you want something […]

Sweet Luxury from Frette

Soon, very soon, I hope, I am going to fill you in on what’s been going on here this summer. You see, I decided this spring that I needed a vacation house. Now wait! Don’t run off, thinking I’m too big for my britches and have money oozing from every pore.  That’s not the case.  […]

Grilled Chicken Parmesan

It’s still kind of summer, you know.  In fact, it almost feels more summery now than it did in August…we had a chilly spell for a few weeks here.  There were several days we wondered if it was too cold to go to the creek or pool – and it totally was. Weird. But, now […]

Staying Connected with Chevrolet…4G Style #Chevy4G

IMG_5131

If you know me at all, you know I am a traveler. At the drop of a hat, I’ll pack up my things and go, whether by plane, by train, by boat, or by car. Speaking of cars, you may recall that earlier in the summer, my little family and I hit the highway for […]
