Who would have thought that bread and jam could hold so many memories for us? Here’s the scoop on one of our favorite breakfasts.
Special birthday cakes are near and dear to my heart. I love the challenge of putting my kids’ latest interests atop a cake. The looks on their faces are just priceless. And being challenged by my readers is almost as much fun. I’ve even written an e-book with all sorts of creative, easy, and inexpensive […]
Growing up my favorite place to eat was a local pizza restaurant that made the best Italian salad. It’s too far and too expensive to go there often, so I’ve found a way to copy it at home. Love it! It goes great with our Friday Pizza Night. A wonderful way to celebrate the weekend. […]
