Carpe Vinum!

I don’t know wine, but I do know what tastes good. My family owns an Italian restaurant and I have been introduced to the “good stuff”. I’ve sampled numerous varieties over the last fifteen years and I’ve narrowed down my favorite grapes to pinot noir and pinot grigio. My oldest son is the wine aficionado… Continue reading Carpe Vinum!

Shake One in the Hay and Spit on It!

It sounds gross, but it’s not! I’ll take one with an extra cherry on top, please! “Shake One in the Hay and Spit on It” is soda jerk lingo for a strawberry shake with raspberries on top. These guys had a slang all their own for calling out orders. Soda fountains had handbooks of recipes… Continue reading Shake One in the Hay and Spit on It!

Ringling Gift Basket

Many years ago I taught scrapbooking classes and “make and takes” as a Club Scrap Crafter (demonstrator) at scrapbooking crops and events. This was one of my favorite projects to teach.

Trick or Treat!

I’m not decorating for Halloween this year. My bathrooms are being remodeled and I will have a claustrophobic meltdown if I get out the Halloween decor. I did mix up a fun fall scent in my essential oil diffuser this morning though! We haven’t had “trick or treaters” in a long time, so I don’t… Continue reading Trick or Treat!
