  I wasn’t born Italian and, as far as I know, I have no Italian in my heritage, just Cherokee and many other unknowns. In other words, I’m a mutt! But mutts make the best keepers, right? Regardless of my heritage, I can eat Italian food like a champ! I absolutely LOVE Italian food – any Italian dish. I haven’t met one I didn’t like yet! And what better Italian dish than a classic pasta and meat sauce? I love cooking spaghetti because you can experiment and throw in different things until you find your...

I have a confession – I have NEVER eaten a Cadbury Egg! Stop freaking out – it’s not the end of the world.  It’s the look of them, that white inside with a yellow center – I can’t get past the look of a real and RAW egg. I just can’t even bring myself to try them. My husband, on the other hand, is convinced that when he arrives in heaven , he will have them in abundance and that this Ooey Gooey Easter Goodness I am writing about will be served to him no less than once a day. Cupcake on steroids...

Mmmm, [cue sultry background music] ……… Ladies, is there anything better at night after a hard day’s work than a little side action that’s smoking hot…….QUICK and STEAMY ….. Raw and untouched? I’ll give you a moment to let your mind wonder a little and come back to me….. NOW get your mind out of the gutter...

If something works, by all means…. DO IT AGAIN! I don’t know about you, but my life was WAY easier the past few weeks with those already prepared dinners from my Freezer Meal Trial ready each night when I got home. I wasn’t sure about the whole freezer crock pot meals… but I am a big fan now.  Each night we open the door to a new...

Chinese Lanterns… love!   Does anyone remember the show “That’s so Raven”? Well on the show Raven would have spontaneous moments of seeing what was about to happen like a video playing it out.  This is an ability every mother has, especially mothers of boys. At times I feel like I can walk into a room, scan it and immediately see a short video play in my mind of everything that can go wrong in that room once my toddler enters.   Sometimes these things are rational.. Ssometimes not: Like right after The...

Hubby is from the Northwest … Idaho to be exact. They have endless snow from October to April (and sometimes longer). You can imagine my surprise when I mentioned snow cream and I got a blank stare. “What is snow cream?”  OMG! How have you lived around all this precious snow your whole life and you have never experienced the deliciousness that...

I don’t know how to juggle. I have never been able to, even though I have tried many times. I can’t even do the first step in juggling: simply throwing 2 of the balls between your hands at the same time.  Now that I have gone back to work, I often feel like a clown in a circus trying to juggle all of my responsibilities: work, hubby, boys, dinner, cleaning,...

This week has been crazy with Hubby out of town and Mommy in her 3rd trimester, I have felt abit like a crazed lady that is losing her mind. Admittedly, I may have said yes to a few too many October things in light of our November bundle of joy. So here I am, as I often am, mastering the act of juggling family, work and other committments. So tonight I had a meeting,...
