Let It Be Sunday!

Happy weekend-ing!  I’m think I have what can only be described as a wind-blown sunburn.  You’d think after 34 years I’d know the limitations of my pale, un-yielding, un-tanning skin.

My Six Favorite Summer Drinks

We can’t let these gorgeously warm, mostly steamy, sunshine-y days go by without sitting on our stoops, waving away lazy mosquitos, and enjoying an ice cold, condensation-sweaty glass of something cold.

Roasted Tomato and Garlic Pasta

I spend a good amount of time in everybody’s way in the produce section at the grocery store. I’m known to stand and stare for a few too many minutes at the piles of gorgeous fresh tomatoes and heaps of garlic heads.

Black Pepper and Strawberry Jam Doughnuts

Remember my Summer Bucket List?  (How is your list coming along, BTW?)   Well… I’m ticking them off.  I’m super close to meeting my running goal of 7 miles AND to celebrate, I’ve decided to cross another goal off my list:  making jelly filled doughnuts!

Easy Summer Shrimp Boil

Red Grape and White Peach Tabbouleh Salad

When I was a kid, you couldn’t pay me to eat parsley. Actually.  That’s not entirely true.  You could have paid me in candy bars to eat parsley… but no one was doing that… that would have been a dream come true.

Milk Chocolate Cookies and Cream Cookies

I have this tooth whistle.  One of my teeth, maybe it’s two… in combination with my tongue and the letter ‘s’… it whistles.

Let It Be Sunday!

Hello and happy holiday weekend, friends!  Are you still decked out in red, white, and blue?  Do you still have a sparkler in you hand?

Costa Rican Breakfast

There’s something people don’t tell you about Costa Rica:  time slows (almost) all the way dooowwwnn.

Mini Peanut Butter and Chocolate Baked Donuts

I wonder if tastebud tastes are inherited.  If so… I inherited my love (let’s go ahead and call it an obsession) with chocolate and peanut butter from my mother.

Let It Be Sunday!

The night sky in New Orleans turns a dusty shade of pink during a summer thunderstorm.  The lightening brightens everything with light and contrast and I always hold my breath for the crack of thunder.

Campfire Baked Bananas At Home

I can just smell the campfire now.  I can feel that tinge of burn in my eyes from the smoke, and I can hear the John Denver.

Sweet Plum Sorbet

I always wanted a ponytail.  A pony ail I could position extra high on my head with hair long enough to cascade down to my shoulders, cheerleader-style, youthful, bouncy.
