Friday Favorites–Breakfast

I know it doesn’t make sense on the face of it, but fall puts me in the mood for breakfast.  I do try to eat breakfast every day, but honestly, most days it’s a granola bar.  There’s something about the cooling weather and the traditional fall flavors that lends itself to pancakes, waffles, omelets, crepes,…

Summer Clearance Sale

I’ve always thought that fall cleaning made a lot more sense than spring.  You’ve spent the summer in and out, with the windows open and line between indoors and out a little blurred.  Isn’t it logical you want to clean that place up before you’re trapped in it during the months when the weather is…
