Easiest Recipe Ever

Easiest Recipe Ever! This weekend I got to go watch my first cousin once removed (sounds fancy) play hockey at The Cooler in Alpharetta.  Isn’t that the greatest name for an ice skating rink? I wish we had an ice skating rink around Peachtree City because I love to ice skate.  I’m not the greatest […]

Rock Trivet

It’s Crafty Friday and I made a Rock Trivet.  I am more inclined to do a craft on Friday because I’ve cooked all week and have leftovers to eat, and I can stay up late if I need to in order to finish whatever I have started. This Rock Trivet however took about 15 minutes to […]

Spinach Artichoke Dip

My cousin Merry Anne is the oldest of us cousins.  I’m not going to say that she’s spoiled or anything but her elder state did come with some privileges.  For example, she didn’t have to take the everyone-in-the-tub baths that the rest of us had to endure as youngsters.  Merry Anne always got first dibs […]

Rustic Blackberry Peach Tart

(I have a low threshold for guilt.) With a head of broccoli in my refrigerator, a block of cheddar […]

Souvenir

Did you get a Souvenir?

Souvenir is a French word from the 12th century meaning “to remember or to come to mind.”  Looking at the history of the word means we have been transplanting oddities from country to country since the 1100’s.  If you do the math, that’s 900 years of pocketing trinkets in one place and moving them to […]
