Red Wine Vinegar & Olive Oil Orzo Salad

Red Wine Vinegar & Olive Oil Orzo Salad

We made it back from Omaha (more to come on that later) yesterday.  I went right back to work today.  Came home and immediately got myself going again on the kitchen.  I think we have all of the cabinets painted.  And thank goodness for that!  I am a tiny bit tired of painting.  I’m a tiny bit tired of the house being torn up.  I’m also a tiny bit tired of feeling like I can’t cook anything in my kitchen!

I love it more and more every time I walk in there.  And I know I’m getting to the fun part of adding some decorations.  I’ll just say that I’ve been spending a lot of time on Etsy, Wayfair and Amazon lately.  Oops!

Chili-Lime Fish Tacos with Mango Salsa

Chili-Lime Fish Tacos with Mango Salsa

I have to say that, as much as I simply adore fall and everything that it brings, I am just not – like, at all – ready for pumpkin, cinnamon, football and comfort food.  Can we just wait a few more weeks, please? I know these feelings are due,...

DIY Onion Soup Mix

DIY Onion Soup Mix

I woke up this morning thinking I had scheduled this post with no text in the post, only photos and the recipe.  Luckily, I didn’t do that.  I sat down to write a post several times this weekend but time and time again, I just got distracted! Ice Bucket...
