Crossed My Fingers and Hoped For The Best

by Courtney on July 26, 2012


Guess who figured out a way to use up some more of her zucchini stash…? Oh yeah, baby. A couple of weeks ago, I received my latest issue of Cooking Light magazine in the mail and happened to come across this recipe for Summer Squash and Ricotta Galette. I followed the recipe to a T, […]



Tonight’s dinner? Holeeeeee… I’d been thinking of tonight’s meal ever since last night when Jay and I actually made a half-assed attempt at a meal plan for the week. Yeah, we’ll see how that pans out…but for now, we’ve already got one solid meal in the books! I knew I wanted to use some of […]

Over the weekend while Jay and I were at Brown’s for dinner, we both ended up having one of the menu items totally catch our eye: a Turkey Rueben. Now, I have had many a-Ruebens in my day, both the original with corned beef and the turkey Rueben. (Fun Fact: One of my favorite meals […]

I am feeling so incredibly “bloggy” right now, as I type up this post while sitting in a cozy little corner of MochaLisa’s Caffe. Earlier this evening, I met up with my friend Heather here for an early dinner date. I suggested MochaLisa’s for their delicious paninis and cozy atmosphere. You may remember my last […]

Peanut Butter? Check. Banana? Check. Honey? Check. Whole Wheat bread? Check. Strong hankering for a peanut butter & banana panini? YOU BETCHA!!

Hard At Work

by Courtney on May 23, 2010

Boy, were we BUSY today!  Jay was outside practically all day working in the yard.  I was working hard inside on cleaning out some closets & other things to get ready for a garage sale! We still have a ton of work ahead of us…something to save for a rainy day.   When we bought […]
