Dear 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic and quarantine hell was NOT on my vision board! I don’t know about all of you, but I’m starting to feel cooped up and crazy. I don’t even remember the last time I left the house … all of this “home and together” time is more difficult than I ever […]

Soup is … cozy, warming, comforting, healing, good for you and just plain YUMMY! The best part? Dipping a french baguette in a steamy bowl of soup … the joy! Out of all the things I like to make, soup is at the top of the list. Preparing the ingredients is almost therapeutic. Watching all […]
