The Part in the Shower?


All morning, I have been craving one of those cool, dreary, constant downpour type of mornings. You know what I mean? The ones that make you want to hangout in your cozies and curl up on the couch with a good book…those are always so great (as long as I don’t actually have to be…

Two Stars of the Show


Dinner tonight was awwwwwwesome. We still had quite a bit of our loaf of Italian bread left from this weekend’s Farmers Market trip, so rather than let it go bad, I decided to cook up a batch of homemade croutons. So quick and simple, too! To make a batch of Garlic & Parmesan Croutons: Cut…

Sampled My Way Through


It’s been a busy Monday morning and afternoon, thanks to my having to catch up on everything I didn’t get done over the weekend. Hey, it was worth it! My first stop of the day: Sephora. I could spend hours in that store, browsing, sampling, and just having a ball. But since I had other…
