Since I’ve moved to the south, I’ve been schooled about the fabulous hatch chiles. I love walking into all the grocery stores to the smell of roasting hatch chiles. Before I moved to Texas, I was totally deprived of this deliciousness. We are lucky to stock up on the through […]
Who Can ♥♥♥♥ the Salt Lake County Firefighters Like We Do………..Ain’t Nobody Loves ’em Like WE DO!
Did you know that any abandoned or refused produce (that is still in good shape) must be donated to our local fire stations? I have had the wonderful opportunity to visit with some of our local firemen these last few weeks, by delivering abandoned baskets to them. They ever so much […]

This refreshing blueberry and watermelon smoothie lets the delightful sweetness of ripe blueberries take center stage, but also letting the refreshing coolness of the watermelon peek through. Great smoothie for a hot summer day!
Pasta cooked on the grill
