Just a few days until the unofficial beginning of summer! Whooohooo!  We made it! 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…

Feels good to be back photographing these gorgeous vegetables and creating new recipes for the blog.  It’s been awhile.  I’ve been through quite a bit these past few weeks dealing with some of my own personal health issues and the craziness of being “COO” of this busy company called Family!   In the midst of it all, somehow I managed to help lead a minor “wellness coup” within my childrens’ school district. If you’ve read my previous post, you know…
