The other day, my good friend Lisa gave me a bunch of radishes. There were a bunch of your normal garden variety red gems, but there were also a bunch of larger white ones mixed in. At first, I thought she had mistakenly given me some turnips. But upon further... Continue reading

Yesterday was my birthday. I turned 40. I know it's supposed to be this milestone birthday. Forty. It used to sound old to my naive ears. But in truth, it's just another year. And I feel better than ever. Every birthday, I spend time talking with God. Once you leave... Continue reading

OK I admit I may have been a bit liberal in naming this post. But in my book, this salsa is as easy to make as it would be to go to the store, buy a jar of the premade stuff and open it. And guess what? This tastes better.... Continue reading

There are plenty of reasons why I run. In fact, I already wrote about them here if you want to read them. But today I'm going to tell you the reasons that don't even come CLOSE in my mind when I run: I don't run to get a PR or... Continue reading

There are so many bad things out there that have no resolution. No closure. No happy ending. I don't like to write about those bad things. I would rather write about how problems are resolved and what could be learned and gained from the experience. So here on my own... Continue reading

It is always exciting when a new business comes to the area. It's more exciting when that business is run by locals. It's even MORE exciting when the product they are selling is great. But you know what really makes a new business run by locals that are selling a... Continue reading

The other day I got a question from my friend Heather on our What the heck's a bonbon? Facebook page. "Any experience using Avocado oil instead of EVOO? Saw some today and was curious as to how it compares..." I had never tried it before, so of COURSE I had... Continue reading

Two weeks ago, my family and I ventured to Laurita Winery's Food Trucks and Firepits festival. I decided to write about it because WOW it was awesome. As soon as we pulled up, I fell in love with the place. Everything about it just screamed, "I love you, Cindy. Please... Continue reading

I'm going to just cut to the chase on this one: Make your own breakfast sausage. I implore you! It's so stinkin' easy you might wonder why you ever bought that already made stuff before. Here is my recipe, but seriously... change it up to suit your own family's taste.... Continue reading

Have you ever used Jamberry nails? I was given a few to try out a while ago by my friend Jenna who is a Jamberry team leader at Urban Mom. She wanted me to give my opinion on the nail decals and give you all some info on purchasing. But... Continue reading

Once upon a time, there was a boy named Ax. Ax liked to walk around his neighborhood looking for damsels in distress that needed saving, bank robbers who needed thwomping, and other dastardly schemes that involve the much needed help of a super hero. Then one day, Ax's mom handed... Continue reading

Let me start by saying I have absolutely no idea if this is what you would call an "authentic" Hungarian recipe or not. I just know that when I was a kid we would eat these ALL the time. Being that my father's side of the family is 100% Hungarian,... Continue reading

If we ever have any chicken and corn left over from a barbeque - which is a rarity- I like to make chicken corn chowder. It's so easy and makes a great, hearty weekend lunch before soccer games. I love to load it up with a bunch of potatoes and... Continue reading

Let me know if you try it! I'd love to hear your critique. :-)
You're right Barb. That would make it even BETTER!
There are just some meals that scream SPRING IS HERE! This beautiful little pasta dish just makes me feel all happy inside. It's a nice all-inclusive meal that has something for just about everyone. It's not quite a hot pasta dish, and not quite a pasta salad either. It reminds... Continue reading

I have been doing some serious thinking the last few days. And guess what I came up with. Potatoes are my favorite food. Yep. Potatoes are so versatile. They can be eaten at every meal and in between without anyone even batting an eyelash. They can be boiled, fried, baked,... Continue reading
