Baked Parmesan Pickle Dip

I always think anything that involves cooked pickles sounds weird.  And yet, I’ve never tried anything with cooked pickles that I didn’t like.  Go figure.  This dip is a modification of a version I’ve been taking to parties for years.  Without fail, someone tells me how much they love it and asks what’s in it. …

Friday Favorites–Viva Las Vegas

I’m going on a sort-of vacation next week.  My husband has a conference to attend in Las Vegas, so I’ll be tagging along.  It’s been pretty stressful around here, mostly for good reasons, but exhausting all the same.  I was really excited to get away from everything for a few days, until I saw this:…

Be Our Guest Lamp

Our daughter got married last year.  That left us with an extra room in our house and all that talk of “someday, when we have a guest room…” finally meant something.  Ironically, the most common guest would likely be that same daughter.  However, since there may be others sprinkled in, we decided not to leave…

Pretzel Hot Dog Buns

In one of those “Why have I never thought of this before?” moments, it dawned on me how amazing pretzel hot dog buns would be.  I used to make homemade soft pretzels once in a while, but haven’t for a few years, probably because it would make my gluten-free daughter cry.  However, she doesn’t live…

Friday Favorites–Creative Cash for Grads

One of the most popular editions of Friday Favorites I’ve done to date was this time last year when I focused on creative ways to give graduates the gift of a fatter wallet.  It seems like other people agree with my “cash is king” philosophy when it comes to giving to grads.  Fortunately I didn’t…

Tassel Graduation Card

My husband is the youngest of seven children, and every one of those families has two or three kids.  That sounds like the beginning of a story problem, but what it really means is that high school graduations have been coming fast and furious for the last few years.  That’s not even addressing the bunch…
