Just got back from our little mini-vacation to Hershey, PA with the kids.  We had a lot to celebrate this past week.  School is finally out for summer and we will officially have a teenager (what?!) living in our house!  Gosh, the years fly by!  I can still remember the moment we got home from the hospital with our new baby boy, not knowing what the heck to do with him!  How could that tiny little “creature” now be standing…

Summer is almost here…I can literally taste it!   That means I’m going to be in the kitchen creating recipes with all the delicious, fresh, seasonal produce that’s coming our way! Strawberry season is upon us and so is the heat.   How about a cool, refreshing drink to help quench your thirst?  These…

At this point in the year, I’ve just about had it with dragging kids out of bed, carpools, homework, rushed dinners, projects, making school lunches and snacks or anything of the like.   At this point, all the homework passes are being used up and I don’t care if they eat the chicken nuggets from the cafeteria or drink water from the water fountain.  I’ve pretty…

The weather has been near perfect.  But I’m way behind in my home gardening duties.  I’ve usually planted all my flowers around the yard by now, but not this year. Well, I guess I shouldn’t feel so bad.  At least the garden at my daughter’s elementary school looks amazing.  It’s where I’ve been spending a lot of my free time lately.  The newly updated school garden is in the process of being finished… finally, after 2 years!  The vision is…
