I've always loved potatoes but now that I'm gluten free, they are my best friends! Sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, roasted potatoes...I'm always looking for a new way to prepare them. So it certainly made my day to find a recipe that combined my love of mushrooms and a little "heat" with potatoes!
Did you know that fish and pasta taste great together? That's one cooking tip from mom that I'll always remember. I had a taste for pasta (GF of course) and fish, and these fried salmon cakes (or croquettes depending on who you ask) hit the spot!
I love versatile pieces, and this romper is no exception. For dinner with girlfriends I opted to dress it up with a pair of spiked heels with spike and stud adornment. The addition of the blazer was perfect for the air conditioned restaurant. I must admit, this outfit made me feel a little rocker chic.
Last week Tammy of A Loyal Love [whose style we adore!] invited us to attend the ArtSee DC showcase of artist Garth Fry at Local 16. Garth specializes in art made of paper rolled by hand. It's really quite amazing.
Seeking a way to add some visual interest to our basement family room and office space, we decided the most affordable thing to do would be to paint chevron stripes on a wall! At first I was unsure if we’d be able to complete the task with precision and accuracy, but Cenita convinced me we could do it!
We completed the project over two weekends. On the first weekend I painted the entire basement in a fresh coat of semi-gloss white paint. On the second weekend, the fun began!
When you find the perfect black purse, suitable for work and play, you've hit the jackpot. Cenita is currently searching for said holy grail of purses and I thought I'd give her a head-start by gathering a few that I like from across the web from varying price points. Her list of requirements included:
- must be leather
- can hold the daily schlep [water, lunch, snacks, personal items]
- straps must be long enough to wear on arm
With the exception of #6 from Zara (it's not leather, but comes with a much friendlier price tag), I think these hit the mark.
