Most days, I look in the mirror and don’t even recognize this person I have become. I look at the old me and the person I am now and feel like they are 2 separate yet equally important parts of me.

What to do on a chilly fall or winter day? Want that tasty, savory comfort food? Want something that melts in your mouth but you know has that hearty goodness fresh from your basket?
We had this off and on growing up when we’d spend the night with friends. It was a tasty and easy way to get us kids to eat our veggies and love having seconds, too. (more…)

My step dad is Japanese. His mom is from Okinawa, she is the sweetest woman in the world. She stands 4’2 but her smile brightens a room!
