BLT Avocado Cups of Heaven

As each summer winds down, it’s always all about the tomatoes in our house. Salsa, tomato/basil/mozzy, tomato with zucchini, heirloom bruschetta, the list goes on. Unfortunately, this year we didn’t start our own garden since we ran into a few hiccups in the backyard. Thankfully, we had Door to Door Organics to take care of […]

Backyard renovations: An update

As it goes for most homeowners, what was supposed to be a small upgrade has turned into a many mega projects at our new place. Back in May, I blogged about the beginning of our backyard renovations and on May 12th, I would have guessed on July 22, our backyard entertaining space would be upgraded […]

Introducing Door to Door Organics (and a giveaway!)

Fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs are easily one of my favorite things about summer. I may not be a fancy chef, but I can make a mean meal provided I have fresh produce and protein on hand. That’s why Tuesdays are quickly becoming my favorite day to arrive home from work.

Why? Tuesdays are […]

Pier W’s patio is open for business!

It’s no secret my family and I have a love affair with Pier W, so when I was invited to check out their patio last week, I knew who would be the perfect plus one: my mom!

Rachael Ray comes to Cleveland December 14: Giveaway

I’ve always been a fan of Rachael Ray. EVOO, yummo and all. I tend to watch 3 channels on TV and the Food Network happens to be one of my favorites. And when I work from home, I always watch The Rachael Ray Show. I have an obsession with anything buffalo chicken and I think […]

Browns home-opening weekend!

**Congrats to @Timzaun for winning the Browns tickets to the Lions game!

The Browns have always been great at taking us to the highest-of-highs (I’m talking a couple of first downs) and plumetting us into the lowest-of-lows before we can even finish celebrating something semi-positive they did on the field. Do I sound bitter? I’m […]

2013 Taste of the Browns to benefit Cleveland Foodbank

I really can’t even believe I’m saying this but, THE BROWNS PLAY THIS WEEK! Sure, it’s a preseason game but it certainly means tailgating, sweatshirts, clambakes & football fever are just around the corner.

As with every year, I hate saying goodbye to summer but (duh) CLE is a football town and as we do […]
