I’ve been dying to make these marshmallows, but have gotten so caught up in other things that I kind of forgot about them.  We all need to slow down. Stop and smell the roses. Appreciate the little things. Take … Continue reading

Classic Banana Bread

Classic Banana Bread

Isn’t it funny how we tend to want the things we can’t have, the most, and want the things we do have, the least?!  I like to think that typically, I appreciate what I have. What ever that may be. I don’t wait until it’s no longer in reach before I desire it. With one exception. … Continue reading
