Since lemons were on sale, I was planning on this recipe last week, but I never found time. This week I made time because I really wanted some lemony-blueberry goodness. It was very, very simple.

There will be fireworks. And a picnic. I love that we are a country of rebels and continue to be a country of rebels. It’s not … Continue reading It’s July 4th! Happy Independence Day!

I have only made fresh ravioli once, and once was enough. Much like making my own steamed … Continue reading Dinner Menu: Ravioli w/ Rosemary Basil Cream Sauce
Photo by JeffreyW Heading out of town, but wanted to leave you with one of my favorite recipes. I’m off to Boston…hoping for good weather and good food. Good company is a given.
