As a passionate amateur photographer, I adore letting the w… Read full post »

Easter has always been one of my favorite eating holidays.  My Mom and my Grandmother would have food from dawn to late evening – breakfast, brunch, lunch, grazing and dinner – and never forget the dessert.

The best part of this Easter?  We are going to have my Grandmother&#8217… Read full post »

Chayote Squash Soup


This strange looking vegetable caught my attention while I was shopping at Publix.  The sign said  two for 2.49 and I thought why not try this.  I really do like experimenting in the kitchen.  Sometimes the experiment goes well and sometimes not too great but this experiment was a total… Read full post »

Easter baskets are a big deal in our house.

Growing up, it did not matter how old you were, everyone got an Easter Basket with some candy and extra special treats stuck inside.  My Grandmother made baskets and my Mom makes them.

Last year, I did a fishing tackle box for my son… Read full post »

Risotto makes me happy; cooking it, eating it, standing over it and coaxing all of that delicious flavor into those teeny little grains of arborio rice.  I can eat it warm or cold – straight from the fridge is gorgeous and I like it in the morning, afternoon and evening.… Read full post »

I should start this post off with a God Help Me.  Or a bottle of wine.

I am a really creative person but my creativity does not really extend to things like being an Organizing Expert or even a Homemaking Expert.  I like to cook.  I like to decorate.  I like to… Read full post »

Gluten Free Easter Candy

When I discovered my Gluten Sensitivity, I felt relieved not deprived.  That reaction could have changed dramatically for the worst if chocolate had gluten.  No more chocolate?  Strap me in, someone could get hurt!
