I love that word…smorgasboard! When I was a child, my grandparents (Dad’s side) used to take my sister and I to a “smorgasbord” to eat dinner. It was called The Main Street Smorgasbord.
From Wikipedia: Smörgåsbord [ˌsmœrɡɔsˈbuːɖ] is a Swedish word which refers to a type of Scandinavian meal served buffet-style in Swedish cuisine. In [...]
Chocolate Covered Potato Chips! OMG! I was surfing the blogs that I frequently read and this wonderful woman over at Vanilla Sugar has posted a recipe and pictures of chocolate covered potato chips! Being gluten-free, I can’t exactly go down to the store or candy shop and buy chocolate covered pretzels, which I use to [...]
Let me start by saying that I don’t ever win anything. The other night I was surfing the net and reading food blogs, mostly gluten-free, for new recipes and inspriration, when I came across Celiac Chicks running a contest or 2. I entered both of the. One was for free GF Cookies (YUM), the other [...]
Just wanted to post a quick note about those who lost their lives on 9-11-2001.
I don’t think I will ever forget where I was that day or at that minute. I was in a computer training class for a new job when Aaron called my cell phone to tell me that a plane had [...]

I saw this on GF Goodness and had to participate! I love this kind of stuff! It excites me almost as much as getting mail (not the bill part of the mail, but the other fun stuff) or getting brand new school supplies! So, here I go….
1) Copy this list into your own blog, [...]
That is my daughter’s newest expression. I am sure she learned it from her older brother, who probably learned it from that song on the radio. I am not even sure who sings (or raps) that song as I write this. Anyway, Hannah must have said this 4 times today when I was around. I [...]
I have been in such a baking mood lately and I can’t seem to stop. It is becoming a problem b/c we can’t eat the stuff fast enough! LOL! I am going to have to slow down or start to freeze at least half of my projects. Jon is not objecting in the least. This [...]
Ah…The Sound of Music! Today we (the kids and I) went to see The Sound of Music play in a little theater in Grove City called Little Theatre Off Broadway. What a wonderful play! One of the nuns, Sister Margaretta, Mistress of Postulants, was played by someone we know (my step-brother’s wife, to be techinically [...]
So while I was busy baking today, it dawned on me that I had chicken breasts defrosting in the fridge and no real plan for them. I wanted to do something relatively fast, as I had spent enough time in the kitchen today. So, I decided to make a grilled chicken fettucine alfredo. Actually, to [...]
