Comfort and Joy—A Seasonal Meal

I’ve been wanting to share this “comfort-food”-themed Gourmet Group meal with you, since I had the pleasure of eating it, a year ago. Unfortunately, I didn’t get photos right away, and then the season had kind of passed. I’m sharing it with you now, because some of the ideas, might work well on your Thanksgiving […]

Back to School Bashes

I know it feels strange to be thinking about school uniforms and class supplies when it’s 110 outside, but in just a couple of weeks, my kids will be back in school. So whether you are sad to see them go, and want one last hurrah before that fateful day, or whether you are counting […]

Wonderful Wonderland Dinner

This is not My Insanity–but I wish it were!  Back in the middle of my April craziness, I got to sneak away for gourmet group at my friend, Jennifer’s house.  She and Alicia went all out creating this evening in Wonderland (as in Alice in Wonderland) for us.  I asked them if I could share […]

An Earthy Easter

Do I get extra credit for blogging about our Easter Dinner before Mother’s Day is here.  I like to look at it as helping you get a headstart on next year’s Easter (not me being really behind in posting). One day I was given a bunch of beautiful pastel goblets by a friend who was […]

Other Easter Inspiration

You’ve seen my wheat grass, edible nests, and the cool “tie”-dyed eggs I want to try. I thought I should show you some of the other ideas from blogland that are inspiring me this Easter. Several of these are via the blog, Be Different, Act Normal. I’m planning to do this bunny napkin fold by […]

Growing Easter

What a difference a day makes!: Remember the picture I posted of these guys yesterday? Well this is what they look like today! At this rate, they may need a haircut before Easter! If you don’t think you’d have time to grow some wheatgrass, check out this idea I did last year. UPDATE (April 9, […]

Easter Decor: All About Wheatgrass!

Any idea what this is? Well, I will tell you. A few weeks ago, inspired by the recent acquisition of a set of 12 pastel goblets, and wanting to justify their existence (they were free, just not something you use everyday)–I got the crazy idea to host Easter dinner for my husband’s family. Well, it […]

Quick Spring Centerpiece

While we were visiting my in-laws, I couldn’t resist snipping some branches off of a blossoming tree in their front yard to make a centerpiece for our Sunday dinner. If you are fortunate enough to live in an area where things are in bloom, it’s easy and cheap to bring the outdoors in for a […]
