Tis the season!!!  No, not that season.  It’s strawberry season in some parts of the country and will be full-blown strawberry season in the whole country in just a few weeks.  I took advantage of some good-lookin’ strawberries being sold at our local grocery and made a delish pie.  Well, actually it looks more like […]

Key Lime Pie Martini

Key Lime Pie Martini

Not long ago a few of us neighborhood gals got together for a bunko night.  If you have never played bunko, it is fun and absolutely no skill is involved.  Since the weather has been cold, we decided to dream of some warm weather, and we had Key Lime Pie Martinis.  They were tasty.

French Mocha Macarons

French Mocha Macarons

Thanks to Martha Stewart, I checked something off of my bucket list today.  My March issue of Martha Stewart Living arrived, and the front cover was peppered with beautiful, pastel macarons.  Now, check that spelling.  It’s not the traditional coconut macaroons like the ones in this recipe that Jordan made.  These are the delicate, little […]

Brussel Sprouts With Walnuts

Brussel Sprouts and More

After a six month hiatus, I returned to my trusted hair stylist, Kerri, this week.  She had a baby last fall, and I decided that would be a good time to try someone new.  However, I really missed Kerri and just had to go back. (Has that ever happened to you?)  I consider her my […]
