I Didn’t Write Last Month.

I didn’t write last month. At least not enough to merit a pat on the back or the chocolates I keep as a reward for every 1000 words written. (I’ve set the bar low here, people.) The irony of the situation is that the month of November was National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo as [Read On]

Driver Survival Gift Basket

I’m bringing back an older post because I love this one so much – this “driver survival” gift basket kit combines practical with thoughtful and always goes over well, particularly with new drivers! “What do you want for Christmas?” I inquired. “Uh, I dunno – sweatpants?” he responded. I was the third person who had [Read On]

Easy DIY Holiday Wreath

I’m bringing back an old post because, like me, you might need to update your Christmas or holiday wreath this year! Christmas is probably my favorite time of year, and I go a little overboard.

Shepherd’s Pie Is My Favorite Comfort Food

This Shepherd’s Pie reminds both kids of the time we lived in Wales. When I cooked the minced lamb (that’s ground lamb to you and me), the dog would sit outside, salivating and staring at the exhaust vent where it exited the kitchen over the patio. We ALL loved it. I think you will too, [Read On]

How To Cook Spaghetti Squash in the Instant Pot

We love spaghetti squash here. I am also very disorganized and am typically rushing to get dinner on the table. (Probably because I’ve got my nose in a book OR because I was actually writing. Or because I’m disorganized. I’ll be honest about it.) Preparing spaghetti squash in the Instant Pot is one of my [Read On]

Hay Festival (Goes) Digital May 22-31 2020

If you know me (virtually or in-person) you know I love books. Probably my absolute favorite festival, ever, is Hay Festival. Hay Festival is held at the end of each May in gorgeous Hay-on-Wye, Wales. I should have been at Hay Festival this year, but things arose in late January personally that meant an end [Read On]

DIY: Easy Christmas Countdown Chain

Kids love to count down the days until Christmas! There are many ways to do it, too. Perhaps you have an advent calendar (for which I JUST bought goodies to fill ours – a few hours after it should have been opened, but hey, no judgment, right?).  I needed something the kids can keep up with – [Read On]

Aunt Jeanne’s Pumpkin Cake

It’s fall, and certainly, that means all-you-can pumpkin. I love pumpkin so much that when fall comes around, I question why I don’t ever bake anything pumpkin the rest of the year!  And while this whole pumpkin spice business is getting a bit out of hand (and by the taste of it, “pumpkin spice” refers [Read On]
