Lemon Poppyseed Cream Cheese Cookies

June 22, 2011

Here’s what I believe when it comes to cookies: They must be at max 4-bites-big.  I’m not saying that I don’t love larger cookies, but you can eat more of them when they’re smaller.  And the smaller ones have fewer calories.  So what if eating more small ones equals one bigger one?  At least it […]

Perfect Summer Dinner

June 21, 2011

The perfect summer dinner is the thing that my parents always made growing up:  BBQ chicken and pasta salad. Sometimes it was on the grill and other times it was in the oven, but as long as it was getting in my tummy I didn’t care.  Still don’t! Great, now dinner plans are going to […]

The Ultimate Strawberry Lemonade

June 20, 2011

My Very Own Daddy

June 19, 2011

My Daddy is the best in the world.  It’s true. When I was a kid he gave up picking Tina Turner up from the airport to come watch me do 3 forward rolls at a gymnastics showing.   He made to almost every single volleyball, basketball, soccer game AND every local golf tournament I ever […]

Surprise Chives!

June 19, 2011

I know I’ve mentioned it on here before but once upon a time I tried to grow my own herbs.  I planted them from seeds.  I watered them, kept the dogs away, and made sure they were in a part of the yard where they would get enough sun.  I lovingly watched them sprout and […]

Double Fudge Mint Chocolate Chip Cupcakes

June 17, 2011

You guys remember when I told you about the snowcone shack I worked at when I was in high school/college? What?  No one remembers that?!  It was ONLY my first job ever, where I made some incredible lifelong friends, and where I started to learn about loving food in a restaurant setting.   It was […]
