Banana Avocado Smoothie Smoothies make a wonderful breakfast (and snack), because they are filling without weighing you down.

I have made this salad 3 times in the last month. Peppery arugula, savory toasted pine nuts, fresh grated Parmigiano-Reggiano, AND creamy avocado. All of these big flavors are married perfectly with the light oil and vinegar dressing. Seriously, stop what you're doing right now and make this salad. Arugula... Continue reading

With a house on the market we have to keep things pretty clean in case we have a showing. This has prevented me from doing any sewing projects, because I have a tendancy to just throw threads and scrap cloth on the floor in my zeal. Yesterday I decided to... Continue reading
