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 […]

On a grey, chilly day like today, I long for the beach and the warmth of the sun.  A few weeks ago, we were lucky enough to soak up both for a glorious four days. Aahhh.   I can almost transport myself back there.  Almost. Adam and I don’t get to travel much at this stage […]

The week of candy hearts, long stemmed red roses, and fluffy bears holding chocolates, is coming to an end.  Thankfully, my husband knows me well.  While I was finishing cooking for my clients on Tuesday evening, he walked through the door holding stargazer lilies and hot pink alstroemeria, along with a card – on which […]

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 […]

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.  […]

Hello, friends.  It’s official.  The hats and scarves have reared their ugly heads, and although folks around here are all talking about much they LOVE the cold weather, the streets were empty as a ghost town after I delivered meals to my Veggie Wednesday clients.  It wasn’t terribly late, just cold, and I believe people […]
