turn your everyday space into an entertaining space

Now that the holidays are behind us I’m ready to put my energy back into decorating our new house.  It’s taking a lot longer than it did when we bought our first house – I think I was done in about 2 months then, with every room furnished and decorated!  This time around I’m finding […]

Was your new years resolution to eat “better,” but you still have a sweet tooth?  If I didn’t work with food a lot in my job I wouldn’t eat as many sweets – in fact, how do food bloggers in general, stay slim or fit??  Admittedly my kryptonite is savory appetizers, but I do love […]
