A Change In The Weather ~ My Corner of The World

This is what a change in the weather looks like at my house. Early mornings are in the 40’s now… The lump on the other end of the couch is Abigail. She’s covered from head to toe and burrowed down even deeper when she…

Crab Stuffed Artichokes & Cherished Memories

Throughout the time that Brandon attended grade school and middle school I volunteered. I volunteered a lot. I worked in kitchens, in classrooms, in the office, copied papers, corrected papers, made classroom snacks, did recess duty, went on field trips, and was involved in many, many,…

Sweet Indulgence

As I was trying to muster the energy last night to make steak kabobs the only thing on my mind was brownies and ice cream. It has been a long time since I’ve made something really chocolaty and gooey. I managed (in a very uninspired manner) to…

Finally Time For a Home Cooked Meal

Life has been absolutely crazy around here. Tony is traveling and changing time zones twice a week, and the house viewing traffic is picking up dramatically. That last part is a good thing, but it puts us in the position of having to be…

Grilled Cheese with Spinach, Chicken & Pesto

I’ve been trying to stick to salads for lunch to up my daily veggie intake, but yesterday I had almost an entire vegetable day purely by accident. I love vegetables, but all day? I must have had a lot going on because typically I’m…

Vegetable Stuffed Portobello For One

A very long time ago I said we were going to go to “Meatless Mondays” . We never quite made it. Although, we have cut back on our red meat consumption dramatically, I find it hard to stick to one thing on a specific day…

Bits & Bites

I keep trying to imagine Fall in New Hampshire. We’re hoping we can get there in time to see it in its full splendor and glory.  Another week and weekend have sped by at what seems like a million miles an hour. Our house…
