We made these fun and easy St. Patrick’s Day Cupcakes to help us celebrate the upcoming holiday. They really were easy which is just the type of dessert I was looking for.

Well, here I am again! I have taken a couple of months off from blogging, and hopefully I will get in a better routine, although I can’t make too many promises until school starts again. I always think of summer as so relaxing, and it is more relaxing than the school year, but it’s still […]

A few days before Easter, yes a few days (I think I’m crazy), I decided I needed to make my kids some new Easter clothes. I didn’t have a lot of time, so they couldn’t be fancy at all, and I had to use what I already had on hand. I found some cute yellow […]

Classic Shrimp Salad

Classic Shrimp Salad at

When I was growing up, I would never even touch the salads that my mom and grandma made for my family. I would eat a plain green salad, but that is about as far as I could handle. As I have gotten older, and much wiser, I have come to realize how much I have […]
