Another Sunny Sunday, we’ll absolutely take it. This weekend flew by, zip zap, and now I’ve got sun rash and the weekend’s just about over. Crazy. It’s been a weekend of eating food prepared by others – no complaints. Thursday lunch I dined a la Suz at Lucia’s, aka The Perfect Lunch Spot. Romantic or…

Here’s why I love this pot of basil: 1. It’s basil, duh-yum, which contributed mightily to the tasty herb frittata I made for din tonight, and will star in many tomato, pasta, salad, and egg dishes to come this summer. All Hail Basil.2.

He’s Cooper’s little bro, so to speak, and Coop’s maybe a little jealous of him. But not for long, I suspect, because Levi is such a kid-friendly sweetie. Stace…

Where have I been all week? Sorry, it’s been a bit crazy ’round these parts, what with wrapping up the school year, getting some time with my nephew Cooper Cuteness, preparing for a big upcoming trip, and working on the house. Throw in a few parties (the beginning of summer fun!) and even a little…

Baseball, steaks, naan, and um, Volkswagen? Not quite as catchy (or kitschy) as the old Chevrolet jingle but the sentiment, while not pure Americana, is the same – man, there is nothing like a sunny summer’s day, ahhh. We caught some actual heat today, which meant real pool time for Nathan and John, a long,…
