The Traveling Cookbook ~ Blooming On Bainbridge

I'll have to admit... I was seriously giddy when The Traveling Cookbook arrived way up here in the Northwest all the way from Bridget in Texas! My heart was beaming when I found The Pioneer Woman Cooks wrapped up in an adorable burlap bag with lots of ribbon and a sweet note from Chris Ann and Kristin of the LoveFeast Table. Knowing the cookbook had traveled from Kristin~ to Amy~ to Robyn~ to Wenderly~ and to Bridget made thumbing through the pages very special. I am honored to be part of the effort to raise money for Feed My … [Read more...]

Mexican Rice Recipe

Kristin and I must have the record on guests that play hostesses to us in our own homes!  Kristin's friend Terrill routinely washes her dishes and throws in some laundry and brings gifts to her kitchen.  And, when I have friends over, they tend to wind up cooking in the kitchen with us as well.  Our friends Doris and Elyse recently were in town and they got busy in my kitchen in no time.  This was the same night as Kristin and I had scheduled our LIVE CHAT!  Can you believe they set the table, helped my kiddos make cookies and … [Read more...]

Spring Makeup Inspiration

This post will guarantee you one guilt free spring makeup shopping trip.  If you have a daughter to take, you will get brownie points for teaching her the fine art of being a woman.  It will actually eradicate any money you spent at Sephora under your beauty budget.  It can now be filed from beauty expenses into education expenses.  This is true fact.  I asked David Ramsey. I know now that I've hit 40ish I need an extra set of eyes.  (We'll talk about my completely awesome green readers later.)  I used what is the equivalent … [Read more...]

Fancy Friday Five ~ St. Patrick’s Day

When Irish eyes are smiling, sure 'tis like a morn in spring. In the lilt of Irish laughter, you can hear the angels sing.   (Photos: Padmita's Makeup Blog) When Irish hearts are happy all the world seems bright and gay, And when Irish Eyes are Smiling, sure, they steal your heart away. (Photo & Recipe: Jacques of All Trades) There's a tear in your eye and I'm wondering why, For it never should be there at all. With such power in your smile, sure a stone you'd beguile, And there's never a … [Read more...]
