How Do You Pronounce Gyros?

How Do You Pronounce Gyros?

I know all my military friends can relate to this. Every place we have moved (and we have moved a LOT) there is always a restaurant or food we miss terribly. Our first move from Montana to San Diego, we missed burritos and curly fries with “white sauce” from TK’s in Hamilton. It took me

We are NOT Vampires in this Family

We are NOT Vampires in this Family

We are most definitely NOT vampires in this family. If there were ever to be a vampire epidemic in the world; we would be totally safe. People would come to OUR house for protection. What I’m trying to say is that we love garlic. It is in most of our meals…in massive quantities. We love

Chocolate Raspberry Jam. Who Needs Anything Else??

A while ago, my husband and I were walking through a super store I don’t particularly like…actually if I could afford it, I would NEVER go there.

Every Day Should Be National Croissant Day…but It’s Just Today.

Even if today hadn’t been National Croissant Day, I would have shared this with you. It is one of my favorite childhood memories and I’m not sure why I didn’t think of a do-it-yourselfer before. When I was growing up, we went to church EVERY Sunday. Yes, sometimes I was tired and wished I could
