Easy 2 Bean Tacos

I love taco night!! It’s one of my favorite dinners! I make different types of tacos one day a week, almost weekly, and one of the types I love is the bean taco nights! It’s so easy to make and tasty! This meal is great for nights that don’t require a ton of your time….

Chocolate Bread and another Monday

Happy Monday Everyone!! Hope you all had a lovely weekend! Our weekend was full of projects in the front yard, in front of our picket fence and trying to redo the design (landscaping) of the front yard. Next year, we will be redoing a new and improved picket fence, but we wanted to tackle the…

Marvelous Monday

Hello Everyone!! How’s everyone today? Another rainy day here in New England, and with the exception of a ton of fungi growing, ugh, everything does look quite lush in the yard and gardens. I have saved a ton of water this year and not watering as much, so that’s Marvelous!! How’s the weather where you…

Lunch with a Dear friend

After a long time of being careful and staying away from crowds and too many public places, I was happy to be out to lunch with my friend and food stylist/photographer on my new cookbook, Rachel Cournoyer. We had lunch in a quaint little town nearby in a cute coffee house. It was so nice…

Those Monday Blues…

Happy Monday everyone! It’s been quite gloomy here most of this month and some of last month, with tons of rain and grey skies. It’s been an uncharacteristically cooler summer for the most part.

Dealing with summer heat

Summer is definitely here! The temps have been super high, and even the rain passing through some evenings doesn’t seem to be giving any relief. To keep cool, I definitely utilize the air conditioning, but swimming in the pool has been lovely when I just need to be out in nature, which I do often….

Monday’s Happenings

Happy Monday everyone!! It’s a gloomy rainy day today and will be for a couple of days here in New England, so I’ll be focusing on household cleaning and organizing as well as getting some much needed rest and book reading in. My go-to books are usually anything by Sarah Addison Allen. Before the rain…
