Love coconut oil but can’t stand the mess involved? Try this!
One thing I do not love is shoes. Well, I do love shoes. I just do not love having wide feet with a bone spur. And throw in plantar faciitis which decides to pop up off and on. This makes finding shoes especially difficult. One pair of shoes that has treated me well over the […]
We are on Winter Vacation this week. I am re sharing a post I wrote about Kitchen Tools. Enjoy! I was recently asked what my most used kitchen tool was. I had to think! I wanted to say my new shiny Kitchen Aid Pro mixer, but no. I wanted to say my salad spinner that I […]
I touched on Project Life a while back. I wrote about it here. At the time I was doing hands on, cutting, pasting, real life scrap booking with this process that was new to me. The major shift in iPhone photography vs. my Canon DSLR was the main catalyst for this. I take more photos […]
Coffee Yup, I love it. I have favorite mugs, flavors, ways to prep it, and times to drink it. It is the first thing I do when I wake up in the morning. My Keurig is on and heated just waiting for me. I love to Bullet Proof it. Bullet Proofing is adding a serving of […]
I write a lot about soup. Making Chicken Stock, Chicken Noodle and Coco’s favorite Italian Wedding Soup. Those are some old links from when I was on Blogspot. Seems like years ago! Soup to me is the perfect meal. While I used to be more interested in the fresh baked buttered bread I would serve with the […]
Low carb Wraps or Crepes are fairly new to me. Sometimes, I usually just do better ‘without’. I was looking to try a new recipe from Against All Grain Meals Made Simple called Wraps. Not to be confused with her Crepe recipe from her first book. In hindsight I should have tried that one first… […]
It is February. I am going to focus on things I LOVE this month. Winter is here. We get complacent about things we do everyday. I wanted to share the things that make me happy and share those with you. Enjoy!
It is Superbowl Weekend. No mention here of Deflate Gate. We are a solid Pat’s household! While I would prefer to sit and watch football with my iPad on my lap scrap booking Project Life pages – this game I do like to watch. If only for the commercials! Superbowl = Chicken Wings. I want […]
When I talk about all my new cookbooks, websites and pinned recipes that I try sometimes the results are varied. Some are great, some are okay and some are not for me. Some I love or like, but the family refused. Or the Mr. and I loved, but the kids balked. The problem is this […]
This post accidentally posted earlier this month. I am re posting on its original schedule date. Tomorrow is my birthday. While the day used to be focused on which bakery in town would be supplying my sugar laden birthday cake and what they picked out for me these days I am just happy to […]
I host Christmas most of the time. We manage to fit all these people into The Little Red House, it’s once a year. We start around Noon and have dinner around 4. Apps are the key to this routine. My ‘newly engaged!!’ niece brings some things for everyone to enjoy and I do the hot […]
I used to post about places we traveled around to in New England with the kids. Like beaches, little towns, corners of our beautiful area on Cape Ann. Here are a few of my favs: MOFA Boston, Plimoth Plantation, Beacon Hill and Salem. Recently, we took a little trip to the South Shore of Massachusetts to Hingham […]
Not much happens around these parts. But when one of your favorite cookbook authors comes to the area it’s a good idea to go! I have mentioned there is a small group of us who similarly cook . One of the paleo cookbook authors we seem to like the best is Danielle Walker of Against […]
