I love a good taco. In fact, there is this little family run Mexican restaurant in my old stomping grounds where you can get the best street tacos for dirt cheap. I even love homemade tacos – crispy tacos. What I don’t like is the mess and the oil. When I ran across this beef taco pie recipe in the… Continue reading
So I am obsessed with Kate Spade right now…massively obsessed! I have purses, watches, necklaces, earrings, bracelets, iPad covers, phone covers and more of hers (nothing retail of course because that would violate my budget savvy, deal and steal hunting core inner diva). Its a mix of the combination of bold colors, the unapologetic use of bold graphics… Continue reading
With my adventures in upholstery starring the channel back yard sale find chair all done and over, it was more than time to focus my efforts elsewhere in our living room remodel. The wingback that my mother had been assisting on had stalled since our last class, so perhaps it was time I took a… Continue reading
I have to admit I am not the biggest fan of BLT sandwiches. All the mayo…not so yummy in my book. My mom and my husband. If it has bacon, then its all good. So I gave the Roasted BLT Salad in the Better Homes and Gardens Dinner on a Dollar magazine, I stopped to give it some pondering.… Continue reading

What’s nice about most of the meals presented in the Better Homes and Gardens Dinner on a Dollar magazine is that they are fast and easy prep. Even better is always the price. So number 33 caught my eye first by its name – Citrus Chicken and Grilled Corn –… Continue reading
Happy Halloween to Everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful, safe and fun Halloween!
I have to brag a little about my friend, Danielle Baich. She did all the cute Halloween doggy photos this year. Aren’t they awesome! My yorkies are definitely camera hams. You have seen the photo bombs all over my blog. But she got my little… Continue reading
My living room makeover is a slow but steady process. Its a complete overhaul with built-ins being added, a fireplace wall instillation, painting cathedral ceilings, crafting new curtains, reupholstering chairs, and refinishing tables. Between the list of projects and the cost of projects, we are in it for the long haul. And for this next step in the remodel, I… Continue reading
I have to admit that while I am a huge seafood fan, I am not a fan of fish or shellfish tacos. But my boys are. So when I spotted shrimp tacos with lime slaw in the Better Homes and Garden Dinner on a Dollar magazine, I knew I needed to try it. As far recipes go, this one… Continue reading
I have to admit when I was looking into colleges, I really didn’t take advantage of college fairs. In hindsight I wish I had. College fairs are a wonderful resource for you and your child to gather information on prospective colleges you are already thinking about and some you may have never heard of.
What is a College Fair?
