Does anyone else have Christmas money that is burning a hole in their pocket? The Nordstrom half yearly sale starts the day after Christmas and runs thru the new year. This is the perfect sale for that Christmas cash. Today I wanted to share a few kitchen favorites from the sale that will put a smile on your face and your wallet. Okay, okay - I threw in a pair of shoes as well, because I just couldn't help myself. (all images are clickable) Le Creuset on Sale There are TONS of Le Creuset items that . . .
Christmas is creeping up on us - and I am frantically trying to finish up all of my shopping and wrapping. Infact - today is Super Saturday and there are lots of good sales going on for the last minute shopper. Stocking stuffers are always last on my list, however I always enjoy filling my family's stocking with treats, and small items - and always an orange! Today I wanted to share a few stocking stuffer ideas (or hints) for the foodie in your life. Stocking Stuffers For the Busy Mom To kick off this little . . .
I've been looking forward to this post for a while now! We were invited to share in the excitement of Martha Stewart's 7th season of Martha Bakes on PBS and give you a peek at one of her recipes - this Cranberry Tart. I don't know about you but aside from my mother's kitchen, I learned to cook from TV! I've spent many days watching various food celebrities whip up desserts and dinners. Watching the process and learning techniques has transformed my own culinary skills. I'm so looking forward to watching the culinary . . .
I've had this idea running thru my head for a while now - the idea of featuring all of our recipes that can be made in a 9x13 baking dish. Everyone has one, and the recipes you can whip up in this common pan are numerous. So this week we'll be featuring some new 9x13 recipes as well as reminding you of all of our previous 9x13 recipes. This post wouldn't be complete without mentioning our favorite 9x13 pan. The Fiesta rectangle baker. I truly truly love this pan. It always washes up nice and has resisted chips . . .
I can still remember the first time I ate a fish taco. It sounded terrible. I was resistant to try it. I was 14 years old, and I had traveled to San Diego, CA to visit my aunt. She picked me up from the airport and insisted we stop at Rubio's. All I can say is that it was love at first bite. Years later I moved to San Diego to attend college, and stayed in southern California for nearly 15 years. Rubio's was a staple. My husband would pick it up every Saturday - and fish tacos were always my number one choice. . . .

I am ALWAYS rushed in the morning, so my go-to breakfast is always a shake. I've come up with some fun, tasty recipes over the years - and so I thought I'd share one of my staples today. With all of the processed foods these days I like to start off the day with something that is good for me, so I find a breakfast shake . . .
The 4th of July is right around the corner - so I wanted to share with you what I have planned for my celebration! Independence Day is one of my favorite holidays. I love being surrounded by friends and family while celebrating our country. I love a pretty presentation (who doesn't?!) and red, white, and blue are some of my favorite colors to dress up a table with! I started out with a festive tablecloth that I found while browsing the aisles at Home Goods. All of the tableware you see here is by our fav - . . .
Enter our Mother's Day Giveaway HERE Boy do I have a tasty and easy dinner for you today. Even if you are the main cook in your house - you can easily hand this recipe off to someone else while you sit back and relax this Mother's Day! Mother's Day is one day that is pretty darn special to me. Growing up I always dreamed of being a mother. I had their names picked out, how many boys and how many girls...I knew exactly how many years would be between each of them. Of course life rarely goes as planned. . . .
Two things: #1 LIFE CHANGING Pigs-in-a-Blanket. #2 LIFE CHANGING Toddler Products. Honestly though, I have a love hate relationship with children's dishes. Do you? There are a few of them I have really grown to love and sincerely appreciate. If children's dinnerware is not designed and made right it's useless to me. Too bulky? Hard to clean? Washes up to look like a car ran over it? No good. I have been a long time fan of boon inc, and was so excited in the recent years to see Boon appearing in Target and on . . .
What on earth is ExpoWest? That is probably the most asked question I get when I excitedly tell them I'm going. So let me explain, It's HA-UGE. (Especially this year--I just read an article about its record breaking numbers.) Its a conference/expo all about natural and organic products. People from everywhere- world wide- come here to the Anaheim Convention Center. There are companies who sell/produce products that are organic- it can be food, supplements, gadgets, edible finger nail products. You name it, they have it- . . .
