Number One Le Jus Teaches Me a Thing or Two

In the past, I’ve considered myself a fairly healthy eater. Nothing crazy ambitious, you understand. Just good, decent eating habits. I stick to small portions. Fresh, whole foods and low fat meals are appealing to me. I enjoy a big, hearty salad. Heck, many times I even crave them!! I may grab an occasional fast food meal,...
Joyful Weekend

Joyful Weekend

This past weekend was absolutely glorious! I relaxed, cleaned, cooked, gathered with friends, and celebrated. For those that don’t know, I am an Orthodox Christian and we celebrated our Easter (Pascha) on Sunday, a week behind everyone else. After a long, long week, I was so happy to spend Sunday in the company of dear friends...

Rosy Embers

I’m beginning to believe my fruit selection is guided more heavily by the coloration of the produce than I originally thought. I mean, I’ve always know this was a factor in my decision making, but without a doubt, I selected these glowing red pears purely because of their gorgeous skins. A pile of yellow-green cousins...

Spiral Diner

Speaking of dear friends and good food, I had the joy of receiving my friend Mandy as a traveling guest in our home a few weeks back.

Labor (less) Day

This is a simple reminder (if you even need reminding) to celebrate today with the friends and family that you find yourself nearest to. Many of us work hard, sleep little, and need a break. Well, today’s our day! As we transition from the season of vacations and school breaks to another year of work...

It is a free application available for the iPhone (they’re working on adapting it to other platforms) that allows you to share your candid photos with a community of followers easily and instantly using brief captions and pre-designed filters to create unique and...

Eating Beautifully

Push has now finally come to shove…David and I are not getting a moment younger and so, with the intention of a long, happy, healthy life, we have decided to take a more serious look at our diet. (Yikes, a diet). Ok, let’s not think of it as a diet. Perhaps improved eating would be...

My Heart Yearns for…

…Cream! Jamie and Molly aren’t helping my addiction one bit either! These ladies are the two behind the scrumptious collaboration of photographer and food stylist via my favorite blog and daily read, From Me To You. In preparation for Valentine’s Day, Jamie and Molly shared a charming recipe worth indulging in on the annual holiday...

Giving Thanks!

Thanksgiving is by far one of my favorite holidays of the year! Besides the over consumption of deliciously fattening foods, Thanksgiving has remained a relatively simple holiday, free from many of the materialistic/consumer driven distractions surrounding Christmas (no offense Christmas). For the most part, Thanksgiving is a day to pause our busy lives and embrace the...

Appetite for Inspiration

Photo Credit: House of Brinson By now, most of you are probably well ahead on your Thanksgiving planning and preparation…so I trust that today’s post will be merely inspiration to fuel your existing plans. Since I am also in the middle of my own holiday preparations, I will keep things short and sweet. You absolutely...
