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!

Banish Negativity

I am not a Pollyanna. I have bad days. I have days where the only living thing I like is my dog. I don’t walk around with a permanent smile on my face. And in case you hadn’t noticed, I have lots of opinions, and not all of them are positive. All of that being said, I am not a Nancy Negative either. I believed my mother when she said no one wants to...

Where Are the Blogs for Singles?

I’m in the process of figuring out how to live my life and reinvent myself. It’s safe to say my journey will provide a lot of fodder for posts to come–stay tuned. So, as I research other women in business, websites I like, blogs I enjoy…blogs I enjoy… Let’s stay there for a minute. One of the things I’m doing is working on my personal brand. As I scoured the web for other blogs...

TV: Scandal

In my last post I forgot to welcome everyone to the new look and feel of my blog. As many may have guessed, the photo is one I took of a flower while on my annual family trip to Hawaii. I like to think the new look and feel with the bright colors are much more representative of my personality. Friends, you be the judge. (And if you disagree, I don’t need to know.)...

Book Reviews: Romance Novel Overload

Happy New Year!!! To begin 2013, let’s start with books…books…books… As I’ve written before, I have been searching for the next Fifty Shades of Grey. I turned to the Bared to You trilogy–which was somewhat satisfying–see review below. I am looking forward to the final book in the series, but I have to wait until May 2013 to see how that wraps up. In the interim, I admit, I have gotten a little carried away...

God Bless

Hi readers. It’s been a while…I know. I’ve been reading–book reviews are on the way–and living life. My original intention for this post was to share all the fun things that have been going on since the holiday season started–which I may do another time–but first, I must address the tragedy of yesterday, at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, CT. Between Facebook posts…Tweets…and other general outpourings from the public, I’m sure it’s all been...

Book Review: The Bone Bed

I have read every single book in Patricia Cornwell’s Kay Scarpetta series. The Bone Bed is book #20, yes #20. Other than James Patterson’s Alex Cross series and of course, The Black Dagger Brotherhood (which is only up to book 12), I’ve never been so devoted. Although, to be fair–I tried very hard to stay engaged with the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich, but at book 17–which I couldn’t finish–I gave up. The...
