That’s pretty much what the doctor prescribed for me for the next three days. Lay on your bed. Stare at the cieling. Don’t do anything that will cause you pain or strain your back. It happened Friday. No I don’t know how. The pain was exacerbated when I was working out, but I don’t think… Read More Stare at the Ceiling
I’ve found a kindred soul in our new roommate. Ok, that’s an exaggeration. I’ve found someone who will go to Target with me. Frequently. I know. You’re jealous. So today we took a lovely walk toward the land of plenty – aka the 4 floors of shopping that include Costco, Gamestop, Target, Marshalls, Bobs Discount… Read More Make It Work: Substitutions Strike Again!
I’m the Queen of substitution when it comes to baking. Seriously. It’s like I decided that I never want to attempt to create anything exactly as the recipe is.

And my gift-buying disease that seems to target only my mother. Count your blessings Mom, I just keep buying… Read More Forget love … I’d rather fall in chocolate!
