A Wine-Tasting Adventure

wine tasting

Hello, friends! Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you had a beautiful weekend and are ready to tackle Monday! It's here so WINE not?! No, I didn't misspell that a word. It's just that this post happens to be about my first wine-tasting with the hubby. You see over a year ago I promised this gal, a great blogging buddy that I would learn to drink wine so I could have a glass with her. I'm late to the party but I'm trying to keep my promise. And this gal is none other that the fabulous Deena ... Continue Reading...

I Cannot Live By Bread Alone

I CANNOT LIVE

Bread is my food love! Could I live on it for every meal every day? Probably...at least for a while anyway. I love it. I love almost every type of bread known to man but I'm learning that bread does not always love me back. It really has a battle with my digestive system especially as I grow older.

The Best Finds at Aldi

Grocery shopping. Love it or Hate it? I actually enjoy grocery shopping when the store isn't crowded. I like food and I like shopping for it. Is that weird? Truth is I've liked to grocery shop since I was a kid. I enjoyed pushing a cart down the aisles and looking at the variety of items to choose from. It was sort of magically to me I guess. Now, years later I still like perusing the items on the shelves but my mission has changed. Today I'm typically looking for items that fit into a clean ... Continue Reading...

Easy Chicken Soup – beans + kale

Hello there! Working on doing some different things in 2017 on the blog. Time to share a little more often but things that excite me. Good food and clean eating are some of those things. So here goes! Cooking isn't always my jam but honestly, eating is for sure. Can you relate? Since we downsized in 2016 and moved into a townhouse we had to part with some things that I truly miss. One of those was a gas stove. I can somewhat cook when gas is involved but electric is posing a really BIG ... Continue Reading...
