Well, hello there, friends!  It’s a beautiful Thursday afternoon, and I am thankful to be back in flip flops and tank tops!  That cold snap was scary- for my body and my mind.  I was concerned that all the vegetables in the ground, trying to grow into something wonderful, would be squashed by dropping temperatures.  […]

Hey, Y’all!  I’m going to bite my tongue while I say this, but I think the warm weather is here to stay.  I could not be more pleased.  Writing on my porch, listening to birds sing and watching squirrels compete in ever-changing obstacle course challenges is definitely on my list of favorite ways to spend […]

Last week, one of my clients hosted a dinner at her house for ten women.  She asked me if I would be able to cook a meal to accommodate one of her guests who is currently on a cleansing diet- avoiding all processed sugars and grains.  It seems that a lot of folks these days […]

Well, it is just a smashingly beautiful day in Decatur!  The sun is shining, the sky is blue, and our windows are wide open.  It’s a perfect day for a little Spring Cleaning and some intermittent cooking.  We’re having a couple of friends over tonight to watch The Walking Dead, so I whipped up a […]

Happy Valentine’s Day to you!  Thought I’d share something pretty and red. These beautiful red peppers are stuffed with a couscous salad and topped with a mixture of low fat Greek yogurt and egg.  I think the presentation is so much more pleasing to the eye than the traditional stuffed peppers that stand straight up, […]

Pizza.  It’s a staple in our home.  I’m pretty sure my husband could eat it every day, even though he used to work at a pizza restaurant and was elbow deep in flour and cheese most of the time.  It’s just a meal that we don’t ever get bored of eating- probably because we never […]

Well, the last of the Thanksgiving leftovers have been gobbled right up, and folks seem to have moved with a swiftness onto donning their homes and yards with red bows, tinsel, and giant blow-up Santa sleighs.  I’d better hurry up and share my reflections about my absolute favorite holiday now, so I can get my […]

This past weekend kicked off November 2011- also known as Fun Times USA in my book.  This month is already filled with invitations to pig roasts, birthday parties, girls’ brunches, grand openings, bon fires, small gatherings, and other opportunities for good old fashioned FUN!  I am stoked! The first weekend of Fun Times USA set […]

Today may just be the most beautiful day in America!  The sun is shining and there’s a slight breeze blowing, making the leaves sparkle like sequins in the trees.  I am thankful for a day to catch up on my writing and reflect on all of the festivities that have been going on around here.  […]

It’s raining yellow leaves in my yard as I type and the little birds are flitting about chirping like maniacs.  Such a welcome sight!  This week has been true to form for Georgia fall- chilly in the mornings, strip down to t-shirt midday, and layer back up in the evening.  People watching always cracks me […]
