So you may be noticing a theme here. I mean, just yesterday I wrote a love letter to wine and today I am pining for champagne cocktails…It’s been a long week. I have never had to cook a Thanksgiving dinner before. But it looks like a lot of work. And while family starts showing up early in the day, you certainly don’t want to put much thought in to breakfast
To my dearest, long lost friend…wine, Oh, how I have missed you. The way you can turn hamburger night in to an elegant affair. The way you make learning fun. The way you can make a long lunch feel so decadent. These have been 7 long months so far (with just 2 more to go). I look forward to when we can meet again. And while you will be an

So, there is this site that I head about that has such a funny
I have been wanting to post about King Arthur flour for some time. I have seen a few of their items over and over again in various publications and think they would really bring a special touch to parties. Of course I have seen their flour at Whole Foods and also seen some of their baking pans, but had no idea the scope of what they do as a company.
Forget Halloween and Thanksgiving, Christmas is right around the corner!! I admit that I am a bit obsessive when it comes to Christmas. I have a list of to-do items that starts around the end of summer and usually doesn’t get accomplished until Christmas Eve. In my craziness to get Christmas straight, I once consulted a personal organizer who told me that in order to really enjoy the holidays stress-free,
You know how everyone says that the average person gains something like 5 pounds over the holidays? I’m wondering when the holidays technically start. Because personally, my 5 pounds usually comes somewhere around October 31st and in the form of a bag or two of candy corn. I can’t seem to get enough of the stuff. And this year, I might have found another candy-corn related way to eat (or
