It’s Not Your Fault ~ A Letter to Honey Bear

Dear Honey Bear, It’s been a few weeks since you left us. Not a day goes by that I don’t think of you. Thanksgiving has come and gone. I was thankful for so much. But, I also felt sad. I don’t know where you spent your holiday. I don’t know if your new placement suits you better. I can only hope. …

Bang Bang Shrimp

One of my favorite restaurants is the Bone Fish Grill. I love the quality, freshness, and taste of the food. I love the seafood, steak and burgers, $8 martinis, appetizers, and desserts! I love the service. And, the prices are great! Of course, everyone who has been to Bone Fish, loves their Bang Bang Shrimp. The combination of fresh shrimp, with …

Weekday Dinner Menu at The House on High Street

Hey, all. It’s been a while. Technically, I am still on hiatus. Praying that the good Lord will shower me with inspiration and clarity in how to continue this venture of social-media-sharing. So, consider this just a “Hi there. Can’t stay. But, wanted to say hello.” kind-of-a-thing. ; ) I wanted to share something I started at the beginning of Honey-bear’s school …

But, unless they are overcooked, veal loin chops are a definite crowd pleaser~ any which way! They are so tender and flavorful. I decided to make them similarly to the way I make chicken marsala. This veal loin chop with …

Personal Appearance – Becoming the Woman God Wants

Hey Girls! In conjunction to our 13 week study of the Proverbs 31 woman, this week, we are focusing on our personal appearance. When I first read this title of Week 7, in Donna Partow’s Book, “Becoming the Woman God Wants Me to Be”, I thought it would have more to do with beauty. The kind of beauty that every runway model …

Summer Baby in WHITE

Banana is loving the summer! It means more day trips and time in the sun. (With sunblock, of course!) During the past several weeks, I’ve been collecting beautiful and feminine items for Baby B from… you guessed it, AMAZON! And, I wonder if you’d be surprised that my favorite pieces are all W-H-I-T-E. My favorite color. ; ) I have …

Traditional Sunroom

Believe it or not, the sunroom at The House on High Street has been an interior work in progress. Scott and I decided to have the sunroom (and upstairs balcony) constructed prior to moving into the house. However, most of the interior decorating has accumulated over time. In case you forgot, this is what our sunroom looked like before renovation. Here is …

Pasta BOBBY!

I’m thrilled to be sharing a dish with you that was introduced to me during my years as a nanny. Throughout my college years, I worked as a nanny and housecleaner for a family that is now (25 years later) a huge part of my life. I worked for Katie (my BFF and current prayer warrior friend) for 3 years during …
