This is the best appetizer in the whole wide world.
For the rest of time, I will make bacon-wrapped goat cheese stuffed dates to impress guests at parties and potlucks.
I first encountered this recipe a few weeks ago at a work potluck. Immediately, I planned to make it for the a potluck [...]
It’s been one whole year since we purchased the Canon Rebel XS. We got it as a joint (early) Christmas present and have enjoyed it nearly every day since.
365 days later, we have saved close to 40+ GB of photos. We’ve learned a lot about photography but there is still [...]

She pulled out all sorts of holiday goodies for me to [...]
We are back in Beantown after spending the past few days (without my camera cord) in Maine. The majority of the time, I roasted in front of the fireplace to further illustrate my cat-like tendencies.

An easy way to save money when you’ve been bit by the shopping bug: head to your local Goodwill store.
