I couldn’t bring myself to cook yesterday. When I opened the door to see how it was outside, it was like stepping into a sauna. The air was thick with humidity and it was so hot, despite a late afternoon rain shower. Thank goodness for air conditioners and take out. Today is milder, less humid. […]

Today is Will’s last day of preschool. Ever. I can hardly believe it. You always hear people say that children grow up so quickly, but only in experiencing it can you appreciate just how true that is. It seems like just yesterday that I was uncomfortably pregnant with him and now he’s almost 5. Time […]

Is it really Tuesday? You’d think that working from home, I wouldn’t be phased by the short workweek — but I am. It’s hard to believe that we’re nearly half-way through the week already. It’s got me a little off-kilter today. In any case, we had an awesome past few days. This holiday weekend was […]

Mentally, I am fully entrenched in summer. Picnics, beach days, camping, grilling … these are the things that totally fill my thoughts. But in reality, Will has a few more weeks of school. I have to work. It’s only May. That’s okay. Summer break will be here soon enough, right? In the meantime, I am […]

If I had a dime for every time that someone in my house requested pasta, I would be a very rich woman. Heck, I would be a woman on a whirlwind trip to Europe … for the rest of the year. Growing up, pasta salad was one of my very favorite summer dishes. I could […]

Yesterday was the first time in months that I haven’t posted on my usually Monday through Friday schedule. Sure, I could have posted a Wordless Wednesday photo or pointed out a recent article. But my words and ideas just wouldn’t come. I was spent, and needed a day off. I hope you understand. Now, let’s […]

Sunday is usually a big day around here for the kids and I. We make snacks for the week, perhaps some exciting dessert or side dish, and we take a billion photos … but yesterday, with the soaring temps and humidity, we didn’t cook at all, save a quick, easy new coleslaw recipe that will […]

When I served our salad last night, I was a little apprehensive. Shawn isn’t a big fan of lemon so I wasn’t sure he’d even try this dressing. But he tasted it on one piece of lettuce and then dressed his whole salad with it. “Rosemary is really the star,” he remarked … and it […]

It’s springtime, and I am so done with heavy foods. Aren’t you? Belly-filling, bone-warming foods are great when it’s chilly outside, but when it gets warm, you don’t want to be bogged down like that … or, at least I don’t. In any case, this salad/lunch is perfect for when you want something lighter. I […]

Canned meats totally and utterly freak me out. Seriously, they do. My husband happily enjoys canned tuna and chicken, but I cringe at the site of the stuff. However, when I saw a food magazine that I like tout the wonderful ease of using canned salmon, I was intrigued and bought a can. Naturally, it […]
