Today I'm going to talk about hair.

Not the nice, flowing mane of silky tresses kind of hair (don't I sound like a bad romance novel?!?) but the other, less glamorous…

Meal Plan 6/16

June 16, 2014

Welcome to this week’s meal plan.  If you are wondering why I didn’t post a meal plan for the last two weeks, well, it was because I didn’t do one.  There was a lot of travel and chaos–and not having a meal plan made it even worse :(  I don’t know why I let that […]

Drunken Grapes

June 13, 2014

Here is a great idea for your next summer party–Drunken Grapes!  It’s super simple–you just marinate seedless grapes in a nice white wine for at least 48 hours and voila–an adult treat worth snacking on.

Marie Callender’s to the Rescue!

June 11, 2014

Most of the time I’m a cook from scratch kind of gal.  Seriously–I feel guilty using jarred spaghetti sauce.  So in the normal course of events I don’t buy a lot of frozen meals. Except. . . Whenever I go on a trip I ALWAYS buy frozen meals for the family.  This makes it easy […]
