  [dropcap]W[/dropcap]e just got back from almost two weeks abroad.  We went to northern Italy and ended in Paris.  Out of the entire trip there were two meals, TWO, that were just “ok”.  Both countries LOVE their carbs.  Breakfasts there aren’t like here so getting […]

  April showers brings May flowers colds.  Ughh!  I have been hit with the change of season bug.  And let me tell you it is not fun.  The only thing that has sounded good the past week has been a really brothy soup.  But I […]

  When my husband goes out of town for work my desire to cook myself dinner becomes essentially non-exisistent.  I lose all my domestic skills instantaneously. It’s ironic that even though I was single for years and cooked myself dinner all the time, but once he leaves […]
