Honey Rosemary Cocktail

Start your party or night off with this tasty Honey Rosemary Cocktail. It was Saturday night and we finally had a couple of hours to make a getaway for a much-needed date night.  The in-laws were watching the kids for an overnight sleepover and a babysitter was at the house watching the baby.  We...

Greek Souvlaki Beef Kabobs

Right out of college I moved to London to work through a program called Bunac.  I was only there for a few months before I came back home for good because of a family emergency.  Just after arriving in London a few days, I met up with some friends and we took off for...

Mexican Stuffed Pretzels

As I sit at a table at my local coffee shop, I can’t help but stare at people when they come in.  I literally could sit in a store, coffee shop, library or mall and just watch people for hours on end.  It’s like you want to peek into their lives and get a...

My only problem with fireworks is the need to pop them...

Whipped Cream Berry Bites

Who’s ready for the Fourth of July?  Me, that’s who.  I’m ready for family and friend get-togethers where drinks are passed around and our bellies are full of meat straight of the grill.  The kids are running around in their swimsuits gearing up for the nightly festivities that include desserts, swimming and fireworks.  Of...
