I’ll be posting a nice, meaty, juicy, substantial, hefty, large, verbose, wordy, chatterbox post tomorrow about why my posting has been a tad light this week, including our deciding to send out invitations for an office warming party before the office was actually finished, my needing to finish up my oldest child’s transcript so she can apply to one of her college choices first thing tomorrow morning, Charlie’s needing to get his ears rubbed nine times a day to preserve his emotional health, and my girls’ and my planning to drive to Colorado before daylight Saturday morning, but only after I make sure the boys’ football gear is sorted and my fridges are cleaned out and I get my oil changed.
Today, because I love ya, I’m giving away 3 of these sets of Le Creuset cookware in this gorgeous “Caribbean” blue color.
We were all at the Building for many, many hours yesterday, moving in furniture and arranging photos, and I’ll post a whole bunch of photos tomorrow showing the whole office.
Here’s how to make sure you finish a renovation project: Decide to have an office warming party…and send out invitations.
By Heather Sanders Do you see the inverted question mark on Kenny’s forehead?

I promise this here blog o’ mine will return to its former technicolor glory soon!

So here’s the torture I’m faced with anytime I have to figure out what to call a recipe: Basically, what these are are mini flat blueberry pies.
One of the most frequent questions I receive via email (and Facebook/Twitter) is where I find the tops that I wear on my Food Network show.

At long last, all the old floor has been sanded, stained, and finished. I’m really happy with both the color and the inherent imperfections and patches that come with an almost hundred-year-old floor.
As I’ve mentioned a couple of times over the past week or two, Marlboro Man and I have been poring through my old hard drives to find photos that we can print and hang in the new office (it’ll be ready next week!
I made Panzanella this week for a segment on a future Food Network episode, and I was reminded once again just how much I love and adore it.

Note from Ree: I wanted to share this post written by my friend and contributor, Mark Spearman, back in December 2012.
Marlboro Man and I have just about finished combing through the 4,564,499,243,487,776 (give or take a dozen) photos in my various hard drives from the past eight years, and we’re whittling down the ones we want to print for the office.
This was my garden at the end of the cold, dead winter. It was very sad and tragic. Even my rosemary, which typically survives the winter, had fallen victim to frost.
