Banana Chocolate Pops

Lets talk about opposites. Hard and easy. Quick and slow. Short and long. These opposites all perfectly contrast the two activities of my weekend. The first task, testing out a new recipe for Banana Chocolate Pops, no big deal. The second task, finally painting my master bathroom, backbreaking. So let’s start with the hard stuff first. I’ve

As I write this post, Memorial Day weekend is in full swing! I’m spending a much anticipated long weekend at my mother and father in laws house- they have a great place in a somewhat country area outside of Orlando (believe it or not, it’s not all Mickey Mouse and theme parks here!). I’ve spent

Christmas is coming, the goose is getting fat! Please put a penny in the old man’s hat! I just love that old nursery rhyme- it always pops into my head around this time of year! I know I am certainly not alone in loving this season, but you really just can’t get the smile off

Parmesan Beef Meatballs

Parmesan Beef Meatballs recipe. Delicious lean beef meatballs flavored with parmesan and herbs that are quick, easy to make, and even easier to eat! I’m a creature of habit. Wake up, go to work, hang out with my cat (and husband), go to the gym (maybe), make dinner, make lunches, fold laundry, read, sleep 💤 …..anddd repeat.
