apple, orange, cranberry sauce

If you’re like me, you’re not a big fan of the cranberry sauce that magically retains the shape of the can it comes out of. After avoiding this side dish at every pertinent holiday, several years ago, I discovered a Williams-Sonoma recipe for apple, orange, cranberry sauce and my family and I have never looked back. While I’ve altered it a bit from the original, trust me when I say it’s every bit as delicious as the first year I made it. I am very thankful for this flavorful cranberry medley and think you will be too. Happy holidays!

Book Review: Entwined With You

Well, I have been anxiously awaiting the release of this book. Therefore, it’s no surprise that once I was able to download it onto my Nook–thank goodness for the immediacy of e-readers–I devoured it in one day. Yes, one day. So let’s just get to it. When last we saw Gideon and Eva they were outside his apartment because Eva had just discovered–from the police–that Gideon had murdered her childhood abuser, Nathan. (This is...

The Sarge Chronicles: My Protector

Since I often share the frustrating–yet amusing–stories about Sarge, I thought it only fair to share some of the good as well. A few weeks ago I was having a panic attack. It’s not a regular occurrence for me–thankfully–but none-the-less, it happened. While I was trying to calm myself down, Sarge came over and jumped up at me as if to say, “It’s ok.” Eventually, it was–sort of. Since the panic attack happened in...

Book Review: The Blackstone Affair

While I’ve been remiss in writing, I have not been remiss in reading. In the last couple weeks, I’ve re-read the firs 2 books in the Blackstone Affair series and then the one that was released in May. I went on to read the 3rd book in what was supposed to be the Bared to You ‘trilogy,’ Entwined With You. A few nights ago, I finished the latest in the Chaos series by Kirsten...

Own Your Personal Journey

Last week, someone said something to me that I have found challenging to process. Then, I met with my accountability partner and our discussion put things into perspective. I’ve come to 2 realizations: Do not let the linear thinking of others determine your personal path One of my closet friends told me that I should either stay in the house I was in or find another house some place else that I could afford; but...

OMG, I Think I’m a Foodie!

We put labels on a lot of things–people included. There are many labels I would give myself: good listener, funny, creative, obsessive handbag connoisseur, and the list goes on and on. However, what I discovered after coming home from dinner with one of my girlfriends last week is I can add another label to myself–foodie. This one caught me by surprise, but after careful consideration–I don’t know why. See, I always thought foodie’s were...

Book Review: Rock Chick

We all know what a big fan I am of romance novels (I still can’t believe I wrote that…). Indulge me for a moment: I used to read nothing and I mean nothing but mysteries. James Patterson and Patricia Cornwell are among my most favorite authors. When I was in a book club, my friends repeatedly gave me lectures on reading books outside my norm. I once read a Nora Roberts trilogy, and while...
