As many of you know (or some of you may not) My one passion, the thing that I love doing more than anything on the planet, is being a counselor at a camp that my church helps operate. It's one of the most rewarding experiences one can have. Filled with... Continue reading

My dad is away for work, and my sister is at camp, so my mom and I have spent the week lounging around, eating bon-bons, and doing all the girly things that my dad hates and my sister is uninterested in. Today was antiquing day. We left at 11 am,... Continue reading

So this one's going to be a long one. I know I promised that I would write last week, and I know that it's long over due... but camp happened. I spent the last week helping to look after 50+ 3rd-6th graders at a rustic and charming little camp in... Continue reading

as well as many other things. Happy belated week from hades. Happy belated wednesday off work. Happy summer sun days. etc. etc. As for my absence, there is little excuse... besides the one about it being hotter than blue blazes. Honestly, Ive been too tired, hot, and blah to even...

WE LUCKED OUT BIG TIME! While the rest of the south endures heat that continues to rise and push boundries, we in Virginia Beach were able to make it through the day with the temperature only rising to about 92-93. Now, while some of you may think the 90s are... Continue reading

While the cats are away, the mice sure do play... with their food that is. My parents (as some of you know) are vacationing in Hawaii at the moment, which means my sister and I have been left to our own devices. So last thursday night we decided to go... Continue reading

Maybe it’s cliche, or a little “hipster”, But I absolutely adore old things. I’ve realized that I was born about 70 years too late. So, in order to get over that harrowing nostalgia, I just look at, collect, and hold dear all things that have even a smidge of “old”... Continue reading

Today was one of those muggy, hot, sunny coastal days. Which calls for a cool refreshing drink, don'tcha think? After I researched a bit I found a delectable virgin mojito recipe. So sit back and drink up. Handful of mint leaves 1 tsp raw sugar 1 tsp fresh lime juice... Continue reading

Since I wrote last I had a friend visit from wilmington N.C., went to the beach, swam in a pool, rode roller coasters, drove miles, volunteered, and watched a golf tournament…. leaving absolutely no time to cook. And yes, those are all extremely lame excuses… But here it is, As... Continue reading

This week has been absolutely hectic! So I took a mini hiatus without telling you, oh devoted readers, and for that I apologize! But tomorrow, I can guarantee some good stuff! In honor of The R.C. And Moon Pie festival held every year in the heart of Tennessee, and is... Continue reading

Something you should know about me: I love Chicken Salad. All varieties; with tarragon, apples, grapes, pecans, celery, onions... you could put anything in it, and I'll bet you I'd eat it. A few weeks ago, when I was in nashville, I was talking with my friend about good chicken... Continue reading

I'm sitting on my parents newly recushioned patio furniture, under a big umbrella, with the warm breeze gently whistling past my face. It's perfect outside. Which is why we ate sunday lunch out here. Very rarely do coastal virginians get such an opportunity. Spring is still too changeable, summer too... Continue reading

I just attempted a typical southern meal of country fried steak and vegetables. While the lima beans, green beans, and mashed potatoes (all topped with homemade red eye gravy) turned out great… the steak did not (I jokingly called it milk steak, a reference that you “Always Sunny in Philadelphia”...

I love the Klein lemon paired with the blonde stain. It would go so well with my teal accent wall!

Saturday turned to Sunday, and Don't tell anyone… but we skipped church. Sorry, momma and daddy. But I mean, we were in Nashville for cryin' out loud. God was in the air and we prayed over a good country meal. 1st stop of the day was the ever famous and... Continue reading

Dinner tonight was homemade Carolina Style Barbecue, made my dear dad, along with the cole slaw and baked beans. Craving something different to add to the whole ensemble I could think of nothing better than watermelon to go with those summer flavors. Watermelon Limeaid 4 cups cubed seedless watermelon 3/4...

After getting in at 12:30 last night, I didn't quite feel like staying up to edit a post… sorry. But that also means that I can bring you a very substantial and well edited account of the nashville excursion. My friend Lauren and I set out from Va Beach before... Continue reading

Quick trips to far off places automatically make for great adventures. They also mean that one has very little time to see sites, eat food, and blog. So I focused on the former two things, and plan to update about the Nashville trip very shortly. So keep an eye out... Continue reading

So, Wednesday rolls around, and I'm so stoked about cooking, and food, and blogging that I totally forgot that wednesday equals church potluck night (a Southern tradition that I will elaborate on in another post). Which led to my searching for recipes, buying groceries, getting pumped, and telling my family... Continue reading

While I didn't settle in Nashville for too terribly long, and some would say it was a love-hate relationship, I was lucky enough to get to taste the best comfort food the South has to offer. It was so good, in fact, that I have to make a biannual pilgrimmage... Continue reading
