Where is Harry? Bridal Tea gone Hogwarts…

It was a big surprise and yet a perfectly logical fit that Casey’s first bridal shower this January was a Harry Potter inspired event. Not to eclipse the beautiful spread of delicious delights, gifts and love that abounded, but, we were all completely blown away by the Hogwart inspired bridal gown design competition that ensued, pitting the younger-than-21-year-olds against all the older ladies.

Good Food Moments

When we travel as a family, I have one simple request. I want a GOOD FOOD MOMENT… GFM, for short. Of course, you don’t have to stop at one, but, that is the goal… some GOOD FOOD! Every family chef out there… isn’t it true… we just want someone ELSE to cook it… someone ELSE to serve it… and someone ELSE to clean it all up!

Soup’s On!

Soup’s On!

Nothing feels better than to hunker down in warmth and quietness while anticipating a yummy warm soup supper that’s simmering on the stove. Soups are such a staple… you can always double the recipe and insure seconds and thirds for the following days. Bake some muffins or just have crackers handy, and you’ve got an easy meal waiting.

Lasts in 2010 ~ Firsts in 2011

This is a “first”… a first for me, and a first for my first-born. We’ve started this New Year at warp speed headed straight for my daughter’s wedding this summer. All sights are on the BIG DAY. With one sleepless, how-am-I-going-to-pull-off-this-wedding anxiety and nightmare filled night behind me, I’m determined to conquer the rest with my secret weapon… the LIST! Oh, how love the LIST. What a beautiful, freeing little thing it is! Even if I don’t know what the heck I’m doing, dadgummit, I’ve got a list!!! I will exceedingly admit that I am not an administrator. I love order and serenity…

Apple Pie…with a Twist

Apple pie. There it is… the absolute BEST dessert and a sure find at any party or table around the holidays. Don’t mess it up with raisins and nuts and crumbly toppings. Perfection needs no alteration! Granny Smith apples are an absolute must. You’ve got to have the crunchy tartness of the ‘Granny’. However, as an exception, if you want a great twist on a classic pie, add 1 c fresh cranberries to your apple pie concoction.
