{Editor’s Note: I don’t recall from where this recipe originally hailed, but it now owns prime real estate on our annual Thanksgiving day table. I planned my menu last night, and the shopping will begin this weekend all in preparation for the day in which we all look to with gratitude, blessings – and an elephant-sized appetite!

Forks Ready to Strike a Pose

{Editor’s Note: Sexy Hubby is off to learn how to be “safe” leaving me to entertain myself! Love that. I will spend the weekend organizing and taking inventory of my Thanksgiving table decor, dishes, glassware and flatware. Also, see below for one of my favorite recipes and one that is certain to don my table in . . . → Read More: Forks Ready to Strike a Pose

Trying To Learn New Tricks

For most of April, I’ve been moonlighting.

With encouragement from my boss, I’ve been trying to learn a few new tricks – called Illustrator and Photoshop. And since I can’t lie within this authentic space, I must say, it’s a miracle I haven’t pulled every newly coiffed hair out of my head.

Spring Flowers + Cake Pops

Wishing everyone a weekend filled with family, food, fun and lots and lots of brightly-colored eggs – or delicious cake pops!

I ate German Chocolate Cake Pops at a party and seriously thought I’d died and gone to sugar heaven!

Bliss, it was!

“Wine-ing” in the Rain

There is a certain amount of humor in getting older.  (Humor, or sadness, and since I’m trying to create a positive spin, I’ll go with humor.)

Growing up in wine country, I can literally count the times I’ve gone wine tasting with both hands. Of course, as I’ve gotten older, and acquired a haute appreciation for various . . . → Read More: “Wine-ing” in the Rain

Reason #234 Why I Love This Place

There are so many reasons to love this place.

Off the top of my head I can think of several; the weather, the history (my history!), the people (my people!), the food, and the wine – oh, the lovely wine!

Last weekend, I took a quick and impromptu trip to a winery that came highly recommended (and . . . → Read More: Reason #234 Why I Love This Place

Cornerstone Gardens

I met with a few old {read=known since junior high} gal pals for lunch recently at a new, undiscovered spot.

I love exploring new places – local spots that glorify the bounty of the county – Sonoma County that is. The county of my upbringing.

Although I was hoping for California “spring-like” weather, it was rather blustery and chilly, even by Golden . . . → Read More: Cornerstone Gardens

New Year’s Eve Festivities

While preparing for our humble New Year’s Eve celebration, I realized, I own exactly two champagne flutes – the same two used on our wedding day!

In my effort to reuse (read=spend as little as possible) I made my way to the local thrift store and picked up four champagne flutes – for 50 cents each! It . . . → Read More: New Year’s Eve Festivities

How to Cook Fresh Crabby Goodness

After sales meetings in Las Vegas, I was lucky enough to have a quick stop-over in my homeland for a weekend filled with holiday  parties and visits with friends and family.

During this visit, I was invited to feast on crab that was hours fresh. Dungeness crustaceans that were swimming west of Bodega Bay at 2pm, were on my plate by . . . → Read More: How to Cook Fresh Crabby Goodness
