Banana Bread Scones with Maple Glaze

You know those days when nothing is going according to plan? When there are 400 chores to be done and more being created every moment and still nothing is going right? Today was one of those days. And that is 100% ok. Because the chores will always be there. There will always be laundry to be done or a shelf to be dusted, but today was my friends first 5k. And I wanted to be there to cheer them on. So, we dropped the chores and the work and drove down to be there to help them celebrate. I am so proud of them and can't wait to see where they go from here! Totally worth ditching the chores. Then, just about the time I could get back to the swing of things an unexpected bbq popped up and it was a fantastic opportunity to catch up with some friends. I can stress about that pile of paper work later. Right now is about letting go of the moments that are out of your control and enjoying the ones that matter. And, when you get back to those chores and find some past due bananas on … [Read More...]

Baked French Toast Sticks

I don't know what mornings are like in your house, but some day's I am amazed that my hair is brushed before I'm in the car trying to remember if I locked the front door a mile from home and dreading the fact that I will ultimately be late because I had to double tripe check just in case. (The door is locked, every single time). So breakfast is … [Read More...]

Don't know about you, but I am in serious denial. Denial that Thanksgiving is next week. Denial that Christmas is like 39 days away. Denial that I won't be able to try all the new recipes I had planned for you. Denial that my house needs a top to bottom scrubbing before anyone can set their merry little toes in my doorway this season. We may need … [Read More...]

Anyone who says they enjoy looking through the catalogs of stores like Pottery Barn and Williams-Sonoma clearly is not living in the same salary bracket as myself.

So when this article hit the web and spread like wild fire, I took a 15 minute … [Read More...]

There's been a lot going on for the last few weeks in the world. For my part, and many not so far away from me, a lot of the busyness has been dealing with the aftermath of hurricane Sandy.
