Hello all! How is August treating you? It’s been very hot and muggy here, which I find extremely  unpleasant, but I know not everyone feels that way. I’ve been trying different tricks to stay cool, some of which help and others not so much. I hope all of you are enjoying the weather no matter […]

Do you have a go-to salad dressing? I do. Whether I’m at home or eating out I almost always prefer balsamic vinaigrettes. I’ve had some great ones and some pretty terrible ones. I think the fact that I make my own at home also puts a damper on the restaurant versions because I know how […]
