Hello, and Happy Almost Christmas!  Have you made your lists and checked them twice??  As per usual, Christmas snuck right up on me, while I was busy lighting Hanukkah candles and being showered with tons of incredible birthday love. At the ripe old age of 39, I can tell you one thing for certain, I […]

Finally this week, we’ve gotten a good dose of sunshine!  I was dropping off meals to a client and humming a little John Denver to myself, enjoying the glory of the warmth on my face.  I got into the car, turned on am 1690, and “Sunshine on My Shoulders” had just begun.  Whaaatttt?!?!?!  Apparently the […]

Just before Easter this year, I visited Decatur’s wonderful Farmers Market on a gorgeous Saturday morning.  Oddly enough, I was taking photos of the beautiful vegetables, as I typically do, while the talented Ms. Inga Finch was snapping professional shots of me!  ‘Twas quite the strange sensation.  But, I grew more and more comfortable with […]

It finally feels like Spring has sprung!  Wooohoooo!  And this is one busy spring week. We kicked it off by celebrating Passover, and we’ll finish it up celebrating Easter.  These are the joys of coming from a home with a Jewish mama and an Irish Catholic father.  I always felt lucky growing up that I […]

The smells of pot roast are taunting me.  And they will continue to do so for the next four hours!!!!!  Upon request, I wanted to share the straight-up recipe for said pot roast.  There are tons of variations that could be made- coating the meat in flour before searing, fancying-up the seasoning, adding bay leaves, […]

Well, helllloooo, February!  So far, you are just as confusing weather-wise as January was.  Some days are sunny and 70 degrees, and then I find myself wrapped up in blankets, wearing my snuggly winter hat.  It’s no wonder that the flu and various strains of colds have been going round and round.  What this translates […]

Hot Damn!  I’ve got a surprise day off, and my body is thankful!  You know, I’m not as young as I used to be, and cooking multiple meals for several families on the same day is a pretty intense workout.  Sometimes, I create three soups in one cooking spree, and I’m at a point where […]

That’s right, people.  Bouncing back is just what I am doing today.  From what, you ask?  From several punches in the gut, courtesy of January 2013. 1.  I’ve been sick this week.  My nose was stuffed and running at the same time.  My ears, clogged.  And my brain, foggy.  I self-medicated with loads of soup, […]

Hey, y’all.  This time of year feels like ocean living.  Cool in the morning and at night, but so warm you have to peel your layers off in the sunshine of midday.  The windows are open in our house, and there’s nothing like sleeping with a cool breeze flowing through the room.  Well, it’s better […]

Hello there, friends.  It’s a peaceful Monday morning, and I find myself in awe.  I started my day by reading this inspiring update about Georgia girl Aimee Copeland’s progress.  I was struck by her perspective.  After losing limbs and nearly her life, Aimee articulated her feelings while enjoying her first hour of sunshine in 49 […]
