Foodie Friday – David’s Family Biscuits

Foodie Friday – David’s Family Biscuits
Every weekend David makes breakfast. Although his repertoire isn’t vast, what he does, he does very well. Including his biscuits. These are very close to the biscuits David grew up on. His mother always made homemade biscuits, and they were delicious. But, like most women, she never measured anything. She simply added a dash of this and a sprinkling of that until the “dough looks and feels [...]

Wordless Wednesday – Hide and Seek

Wordless Wednesday – Hide and Seek
Living with 3 cats, there’s never a dull moment. While there can be times of frustration (think toilet training 3 cats), for the most part, they bring me great joy. Lily and Atticus, the youngest of the 3 at just over a year old, are still very playful. They will chase each other around the house for hours before, finally, finding a comfy spot to nap. Today I’m sharing with you a favorite [...]

Giveaway: Rachael Ray Bubble and Brown Set
It’s not a secret that I love to cook, but I’m not sure I’ve shared with you my cookware obsession. I suppose most who love to cook have collected a few more pieces than most, but I love cookware like I love shoes. But, obsession aside, I’ve noticed something about myself over the last few years. Like most people, I suppose, the older I’ve gotten the more I’ve become [...]

2014 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport SE

2014 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport SE
I’m a huge fan of SUV’s. I know that’s not a popular statement in today’s “green” world, what with greenhouse gasses and carbon offsets, but it’s true. I bought my ’99 4WD, Eddie Bauer Edition Explorer brand spanking new and, fourteen years later, I’d still drive it across country. When I bought a new car in 2007, I couldn’t bear the thought [...]

Foodie Friday – Roast Beef Hash

Foodie Friday – Roast Beef Hash
One of the things I love most about Autumn is the change in cooking. Typically, in the Spring and Summer, I cook lighter by grilling and using the fresh fruits and vegetables to make a beautiful salads. But in the Autumn and Winter, I break out the crock pot and make more hearty meals like stews and roasts. Roasts are so easy in the crockpot, and the leftovers are tender and ready for whatever creation [...]

Foodie Friday – Spinach Artichoke Dip

Foodie Friday – Spinach Artichoke Dip
There are only a couple restaurants that, any time we visit them, you can be pretty darn certain we’re going to order the Spinach Artichoke Dip. For me, it’s a dip that can be done very well or very badly, with very little inbetween. One of the restaurants that does it really well is California Pizza Kitchen. There’s just something about that bubbly hot dip that is just irresistible. But, [...]

Wordless Wednesday-Historic Route 66

Wordless Wednesday-Historic Route 66
This past weekend David and I went to Branson, Mo and was able to (partially) check off another item on our bucket list; traveling Historic Route 66. Traveling Route 66 from Chicago to LA is something we’ve wanted to do for a long time, and are finally planning, but just getting to drive it from Springfield, Mo to St. Louis, MO was a thrill. My only “complaint” was that Missouri [...]
