Erie Getaway

Last month I had the opportunity to get away to Lake Erie for a weekend.  It was perfect weather and I was able to get a few good shots. 🙂     Excited that I was able to capture these images as summer comes to a close! 🙂

Finally!

Way back when I was a Brownie Girl Scout, I remember the first time we cooked our own dinner on a “coffee can” stove.  I don’t remember what we cooked, but I remember it tasting absolutely delicious. And I remember my Girl Scout leader (another girl’s mother) saying that was because we made it ourselves.  Even…

Green Gardening

This is my first real attempt at growing things.  Back in the spring, I had grandiose ideas of making tons of dishes with fresh vegetables.  Think of the money I’d save not buying produce from the grocery store! Well, after losing some tomato plants to a freak frost in May I have my doubts on…

Beginning of the Week Inspiration

I’ve posted about the benefits of yoga before…seems about time for another.  It was such a nice weekend, I decided to head outside to do some simple poses to re-energize myself. I think most people can agree that any time you exercise, you feel so much better, both physically and psychologically.  It got me thinking,…

Salsa-Ranch Chicken over Brown Rice

Fun fact about brown rice:  it takes much longer to cook than white rice.  I learned this the hard way, one evening after a long day at work.  I was proud of myself for actually planning out the timing for a meal. I believe it was some sort of baked chicken, with zucchini and brown…

Third Time’s the Charm

  Who am I? I’m your everyday woman; wife, mother, working professional, and millennial are just a few ways to describe me. Why should you follow me? I’m not a chef, trained in the culinary arts. I’ve never taken a photography class.  I dabble in yoga and dance, but I’m no expert.  I love to…
