Happy May Friends!

I feel like May is one of the busiest times of the year with spring programs, musicals, sports, field trips etc.! And let’s not forget the holidays- Cinco De Mayo, and of course Mother’s Day! If you are sharing this crazy season with me, hang in there! We’ve got this!

This week I have some Cinco De Mayo recipes for you, A delicious Frittata that’s perfect for Mother’s day, and don’t forget to serve it up with a Blood Orange Mimosa (nonalcoholic version). And speaking of Mocktails, I have two brand new ones you’re going to love: Virgin Strawberry Daiquiri, and Pineapple Ginger Beer Mocktail. Mom will love them both and the whole family can enjoy them!

In Real Life

My time is still split between creating recipes for this blog and free lance photography. Along the way Tennis elbow decided to join me (boo!) so I have had to ‘take it easy’ per doctor’s orders. So I have cut back a little on my production.

But I also picked up pickle ball and have been playing a couple times a week. I know, I know– but motion is lotion they say, so staying active with different muscles is good for the tennis elbow! 😁

And of course, my top priority is my family, and that is where most of my time is spent. This weekend my oldest daughter is in the play “High School Musical” and she is Mrs. Darbus, the drama teacher. I’m looking forward to enjoying the performance. I’ve been helping out all this week with meals for the cast and hair (putting that cosmetology license to good use, ha!).

Over the last year, I have found a love for making sourdough bread. I’m debating if that is something ya’ll would like to learn? Or maybe you’re already a pro. Send me an email, or leave a comment if you’d like to see some recipes. Here’s a snapshot of a Cheddar Dill loaf.

A Few Of My Favorite things

This rotary cheese grater has been a game changer! It suctions to the counter and is sooo much easier to use than a box grater!

I’m a girly girl. I remember watching my mom curl her eyelashes and spend time putting on mascara. Turns out I’ve become her. LOL! For YEARS, I’ve been heating up a metal eye lash curler, the clamp kind, with my blow dryer and then carefully curling my lashes. Recently, I came across this type of eye lash curler, and oh how I love it! It has saved me so much time, plus I’m not at risk of burning myself. 😄

Sous Vide Cooking. Hands down the best cooking method ever! This may or may not be a great gift for mom. I know you have to tread lightly when it comes to kitchen things, right? But if she loves cooking and is a foodie, she’ll love it.

A few recipes to try are this Sous Vide Pork Tenderloin, Asparagus, or go fancy with this Sous Vide Tri Tip. YUM!

Book Club

Are you a reader? You may have heard me talk about my book club in the past. It is my FAVORITE day of the month. We love to theme it up with table scapes and swag bags. I thought I’d share with you what we’re reading, and please tell me what you’re reading too. I love recommendations!

In April we read “Finding Dorothy” by Elizabeth Letts

I absolutely loved this book! The story is told from Frank L. Baum’s (author of The Wizard Of Oz) wife’s perspective on the making of the Wizard of Oz movie. It was a delightful read, I highly recommend. I gave it 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Here’s a snapshot of our night. Our hostess also had The Wizard Of Oz movie playing in the background. I could talk for hours about books and book club, so I won’t start that here, but if you want to chat all things books, reach out!

In May we’ll be discussing “The Wonderful World of James Herriot” if you’d like to join me.

Thanks again for stopping by, I’m honored that you spent some time having a conversation at my table.
Have a blessed weekend!
