My favourite dish at Johnny Carinos is their Italian Nachos. Love it. Since it’s still blustery & cold, my Mom & I decided to make these nachos instead of more traditional Memorial Day fare. I found this recipe online & used it. It was surprisingly simple & the results were wonderful! It is rich & … More Challenge #3 Italian Nachos – Johnny Carinos Copycat
You know how there are some things that just make you feel good? The outfit I wore yesterday is one of those things. I’ve had the dress for years – thrifted sometime, somewhere. I love the colours & the pattern & the fit – it’s made of super comfortable cotton. I shortened it at some point … More I Feel Good!
I haven’t always had great success with beef roasts – even in the crock pot. I think they can get dry & tough very easily. My supermarket often does buy one, get one free deals on roasts though so I usually have one or two on hand. I found this recipe & had to try … More Challenge #3 Super Simple Cranberry Roast
Today I’m wearing my favourite cardigan. It’s from Marks & Spencer in the UK & I’ve had it for at least 15 years. My love for men’s Marks & Sparks cardigans began when I borrowed one from my Dad’s closet while we were living in London. That was it, I had to have one for … More I Miss Marks & Spencer
I’ve been busy the past few days organizing! Shocking I know. Seems like I’m always working on some get tidy project. I’ve come to realize, sadly, that it’s never a one-off event.

I don’t have a cast … More Mashed Potatoes for Breakfast? Yes, Please.
I really do. I don’t like uninterrupted rain for weeks on end, but I do love rain. I’ve lived in tropical countries where the thunderstorms are in intense, fast & sometimes scary. I lived in London where it was sometimes drizzily & would last all day. I lived for a time in Tacoma, Washington – again … More I Like Rain
But I’m very happy to be here. I need to find a DeLorean powered by garbage to take a ride in. The 50s were such a great time for glamour, music, clothes, hairstyles.

Bright sun, not too hot, not too cold, gentle breeze. All these things meant we just had to go to the park. Jude rode his scooter part of the way, but mostly it was me pulling the wagon with both boys in it. Let me tell you, 70+ pounds of boy is a lot to … More Perfect Park Day
