  One of the very best ways I know to fight the crazy around the holidays is to go on offense, rather than play defense.  That means we have a game plan and don’t wait around for the stress to hit before we act. One of my biggest goals for the holiday season is to [...]

A senior trip is a tradition in our family, and when we asked our daughter where she wanted to go (within reason), there were two things topping the list:  beach + adventure.  Few places offer that as well as Costa Rica.  It is a natural choice for those seeking the sun, but who also want [...]

“Well, this is it Mom.” Her hair blew her over her face as the warm wind passed over her tanned armed into the car. “The last stretch. Two more months of high school and that’s it.” Immediately my throat tightened and I bit my lower lip. I knew this was coming. Spring break in Costa [...]

Steak sandwiches are a crowd pleaser, easy to make ahead of time, and satisfy the most hungry guest at the table.  Don’t overlook this as one of your family staples. This recipe uses Walla Walla Sweet Onions.  Walla Walla is a darling little town not too far from where we live.  It’s known for its [...]

There just isn’t much that people like more than finger-licking ribs.  You really can’t go wrong with ribs slow-cooked.  Pair this with some potatoes and it’s a memorable meal. People don’t forget ribs.  When I make them for guests, they often talk about what I served a year later.  Crazy but true!  These are easy [...]

Shrimp is one of my favorite meals to make because it is SO EASY.  It takes on the flavor of whatever you cook it with and it cooks so fast.  When I’m short on time, shrimp is my go-to meal.  Most often I’m found pairing this seafood with garlic and ginger – they just go [...]

We are trying to become a family who eats a lot of fish.  It doesn’t come super naturally, but I’m trying!  Recipes like these make it easier.  What I like about this one is that it is fast and simple, using ingredients that I always have on hand.  You can use this sauce for chicken [...]

Clue was my favorite game growing up.  Who am I kidding?  It still is!  Who doesn’t love figuring out “who did it???”  Professor Plum, with the revolver, in the library.  YES! So naturally, when I found myself with extra plum sauce, this was a natural.  Had to be Professor Plum. I love the flavor of [...]

I was a junior in high school and the bright lights shone brightly above the stage.  The MC for the night was handing out impromtu questions and it was my turn.  “If you could have lunch with someone who you find interesting, but have never met, who would it be?” “Oprah Winfrey,” I said without [...]

There is a picture of my daughter next to an overturned raft, hair plastered over her eyes, mouth wide open, that still makes us laugh.  “I’ve never had a boat flip,” the guide had said.  What makes the story even more interesting is that it wasn’t my husband and I with her in the boat [...]
