Greek Lemon Rice Soup

Greek lemon rice soup, also known as Avgolemono, is one of those dishes that reminds me of home.  The funny part about this is that my family never actually made the soup, nor are we Greek.  Lemon Rice soup is a staple dish at almost all of the Greek restaurants…

Working on Me

Did you jump into 2021 wide eyed, bushy tailed, and excited to tackle the new year with a whole set of resolutions?  Or, like me, did you roll into 2021 a bit disheveled, disoriented, and wondering where the heck the holidays went? I did, excitedly, have a few “let’s do…

Let It Go

Sometimes it is hard to "let it go!" This year we’ve all had to learn to let go of things -- it hasn’t always been easy.  I’m the type where once I have a plan or an idea of how things are supposed to be locked into my brain, it’s…

Popcorn Turkey Dressing

This popcorn turkey recipe was given to me years ago from my great Aunt Eulah.  Let me start by staying that she was sometimes a bit of a prankster.   If you are looking for an exhilarating popcorn turkey dressing recipe that the kids will beg you to make year after…

My Favorite Matching Holiday Pajamas

Is it ever too early to start shopping for matching Holiday pajamas? I don’t think so. If you've tried to buy them in the past you know that the good ones sell out quickly. Even though I buy them early we don't open our pajamas until Christmas Eve.  They are…

Canine Cake

We wanted to do something special for our puppy’s first birthday.  My daughter came up with idea for baking her a birthday cake. The nice thing about Golden Retrievers is that they are not picky eaters... at least ours isn’t.  She’s been know to scarf down rocks, tree bark, and swim goggles,…
