The sun, the smell of the plants, the birds chirping… I love it all… Please tell me I’m not weird? Do you love the smell of a tomato […]

Life Lately My brother-in-law and his family came for a visit. We haven’t seen them in quite a while, so it was so nice to catch up. Those moments of family gathered around the table, talking and laughing, long after dinner is over is one of the things I’ve missed so much because of the pandemic. I set a pretty, but casual table, served one of our favorite dishes–Balsamic Chicken with Fresh Tomatoes, which is easy to multiply for a […]

Life Lately Weekend Getaway We didn’t take any fancy beach vacation to a warm and sunny locale for Spring Break, and I have to admit, it was painful to see all the lovely pics from friends in my social media feeds.

For the past 20ish years, I’ve spent my […]

We cooked dinner on the grill after being outside […]
