My Thank You Note to 2020!!
Dear 2020, First of all, I want to say thank you for everything. I mean that will all sincerity. I've read other letters written about you and all the bad things you had to offer. Yes, we could have done without a lot of drama but isn't that every year? I think you are getting... Continue Reading →
Grilled Italian Bread with Prosciutto, Mozzarella & Smoked Gouda
As I went out to light the grill last night, the sky was absolutely beautiful and I just had to snap a photo with my iPhone.

Making Each Day Count
This past weekend was packed full of activities much like any other day of the week in my world. Meetings, cross country meet, outdoor music festival in our beautiful downtown City Park and a Sunday full of shopping, a lunch date with my GW and dinner with friends.

Impromptu Day Out with my GW
My brother invited Miss M to ride in his fire truck in our annual Christmas Parade. GW & I ate at a local establishment, the Colony Club, that opened last year when they (friends of ours) took an old movie theatre and turned it into a restaurant. To watch the transformation was so amazing to... Continue Reading →
My Version of Magic Cookie Bars
I am not a huge lover of sweets. However, Magic Cookie Bars are my weakness. That is exactly why I only make them from Thanksgiving to Christmas. If I made them any more than that, I would end up hating them from eating them all of the time and would have to purchase an entire... Continue Reading →
