This is our beautiful daughter Dre. She is a floral designer who is taking this gorgeous fall bouquet to her sister. > October is Pork month and what better way to celebrate than to cook Greek pork loin!!

AUGUST Dill Pickled Green & Red Tomatoes

  When living in the north, it is a foregone conclusion that you will need to find something to do with green tomatoes. Fried, dried, baked or pickled, you can’t let all your hard work go to waste.

  Last year we had a bumper crop of zucchinis. This year made last year look wimpy. I have so many zukes at moment! This pickle recipe is easy and works every time. My husband Lee quite often has a pickle plate for dinner with an assortment of pickles, olives, cheese and crackers so I can’t make too many jars of pickles. I love to cook but hate to...

  This summer, we went on a trip of a lifetime! Many people only dream of such an amazing trip. Myself and my 3 sidekicks embarked on this journey, but not before overcoming some rather large hurtles. The trip was booked early in the spring, before things got booked up.
