Friends, Football, and Fun

I must confess, I packed a lot of living into my Sunday this past weekend.  The hubby and I hosted a brunch for ten friends, we witnessed a football game of epic proportions, and we played the most extraordinary and engaging board game with a pair of our lively grandkids.  Life is good. Sunday morning …

Cheers to Meatless Meals

I must confess, eating meals without meat used to make me feel as if something was missing on my plate, like I was being cheated somehow.  Growing up with my father as the main meal preparer, our plates ALWAYS had three things on them - a meat, a potato, and a vegetable.  Since embracing a …

Food is My Love Language…

I must confess, I love food.  All of it.  Cooking it.  Serving it.  Eating it.  Eating it again the next day.  I think the only thing I don't like about food is gaining weight from it.  I often find myself looking for recipes like most people binge watch TV shows.  I'm usually on the hunt …
