Is there a better way to start a weekend that with this smiling face? He showed up at my door ready for our first overnight without Mommy and Daddy. First order of business was playtime with wrapping paper from their anniversary gift! Playmat time was good, but short-lived. This kid... Continue reading

In my haste to report my Southern California weekend and the fact that our Matthew came to visit the day I got back, I totally forgot to download some photos and share them as part of that story. How could I have forgotten the photos of Jake's 9th birthday?! Last... Continue reading

Our weekend started early last Thursday morning with a flight to Southern California. That's the way to start a weekend! We were there to visit my brother and his family and of course, that means some baseball ... We went to the farmer's market on Saturday morning, then antiquing and... Continue reading

As much as I love having all the kids home for meals, it's also nice when Ken and I have an evening to ourselves and enjoy a special meal. Such was the case this past Sunday evening when I decided to make this week's French Fridays recipe. It's labeled "Monkfish... Continue reading

In the summer of 1964, a young, amazingly handsome Texas Country Boy aligned with a book company to sell books and Bibles door to door for the summer in order to raise money to go to school. He landed on the doorstep of Rachel Romans who, in keeping with the... Continue reading

Ahh ... Mary ... you make me feel like a genius when all I really wanted was some protein. :) Emily and I enjoyed it as a lunch, and I will tuck away your suggestions for a luncheon menu and invite some girlfriends over. I think a lemon mousse would follow this soup very nicely. Do you?

I've never made cream of celery soup, but it sounds like an excellent idea to make it after a party with all the celery sticks that we all put on a veggie platter, but no one eats! Perhaps we should stop putting them on veggie platters and just make soup with them! :)

Thank you, Candy. I grew up on celery root as a salad ... grated with vinaigrette on it. I think it's delicious now, but didn't much care for it as a kid. I hope you like it, too!

It was a perfect combination! Neither the shrimp nor the soup overpowered the other. It was a perfect light lunch.

The soup was fabulous as it was, but the curry was an inspired suggestion!

Thank you, Adriana. I've got to have my protein! And I knew that shrimp would look pretty next to the very pale green of the soup. :)

Celery isn't a vegetable loved by the majority. It's often eschewed as a diet food and munched on begrudgingly by those who would rather find pleasure in stuffing down the garbage disposal than into their mouths. Personally, I love the flavor of celery, especially with cheese for a snack. I... Continue reading

I have a thing for white dishes. My every day dinner dishes are white, most of my serving dishes are white, and my favorite coffee mugs are white. I have my Emily to thank for this. Where I used to have dishes that met the colors of the decorating era... Continue reading

This weekend was my birthday weekend and I gotta say that my family sure knows how to celebrate in style and with a love that makes me feel so special. Since I cook all the time, they usually want to treat me to a nice dinner out at a restaurant... Continue reading

For all of my good intentions, this is a rare French Fridays post for me in recent weeks. LIfe has taken on a new rhythm and I'm struggling to find the beat. I'll catch up, though, so you just keep up the steady time for me, OK? I'll catch up... Continue reading

I'm not going to hem and haw around the fact that living without sugar and grains over the last four months has affected my cooking, my thoughts about food, and my willingness to post anything food related. It's September and I want to make an apple crisp ... but that... Continue reading

There was a weekEND? How does that differ from weekDAYS? And why do all you BIG people make such a big deal about it. All I know is that I eat every three hours and sleep in between those yummy meals. Weekdays ... weekends ... they all run together. Seriously,... Continue reading

Linen is a wonderful fabric and a favorite of mine. It absorbs, it breathes, it is soft, it moves...it is versatile. I love its even weave. It works wonderfully for cross-stitch projects, clothing and literal linens like dish towels. I have heard of home linens being made from actual linen... Continue reading

Squash is a perfect medium for the sauces that I typically enjoy on pasta. I eat meat sauce with zucchini and butternut squash is delicious for cream sauces. Spaghetti squash is amazingly versatile. Recently, I was listening to a podcast that discussed non-tomato-based sauces for pasta and was intrigued by... Continue reading

Should you dare think life as a 4-month old is boring, then you haven't lived with my mama. She's so pretty to look at ... ... and sometimes, I just can't help but eat her up! What?! This isn't normal? Ok then, I'll try her nose... Still no? Well, shucks,... Continue reading
