A beautiful Sunday In January

“the love of a family makes life beautiful” I have been seeing a lot of recipes for corn casserole, so i finally made it and it came out so good. Everyone loved it, it will definitely be a recipe that I make often, plus it was so easy. The thing that caught my eye about…

Happy New Year

“I am thankful for today” What a tough year, It is a year that none of us will ever forget! I had 3 surgeries during 2020, which made it hard for me to blog. I was fortunate to have my children and grandchildren visit throughout the pandemic. I was also blessed with a 4th granddaughter….

Sundays are for Family and Friends

“make today great” Today is one of those quiet Sundays. Allie and Jonathyn are both working, and Anthony is on a skiing trip. Isaiah will bring the girls, and since my niece Giana is on spring break, she will spend the day with us, I also invited my good friend Deby. I got up nice…

Another Sunday Funday

“do small things with great love” Today will be a day full of family, friends, and a lot of laughter. I love the Sundays when all my children have the same days off. I also invited our best friends, Shannon and Mike, over for dinner. I woke up nice and early to make dessert, I…

Mama’s Eggplant Parmesan

“It’s hard to forget someone who gave you so much to remember” Another fond memory that I have of my grandmother is her eggplant parmesan. It was my favorite food that she made. I would ask her to make it for me all the time. It was a mixture of all these wonderful tastes. Hers…

Sunshine and Family

“stay close to people who feel like sunshine” Today, another day that when I woke up the sun was shining. These winter days have been so beautiful, I just want them to last.

Not Our Typical Sunday Dinner

“kindness is like snow; it beautifies everything it covers” – Kahili Gibran Today we decided to make a small version of our Christmas Eve dinner. My favorite is the stuffed mushrooms and spaghetti and clam sauce. My kids’ favorite is the baked stuffed shrimp. We also all love lobster. But, to our disappointment, the fish…

Breakfast for Sunday Dinner

“take time to do what makes your soul happy” Nyla called me Saturday night to suggest that we have breakfast for Sunday dinner. We all thought it was a good idea, and since Isaiah offered to make all of it, I was very happy. Allie and Mia are away at a cheerleading competition, and Teri…

Every Weekend is Thanksgiving

“raindrops keep falling on my head” Since Thanksgiving is late this year, I decided to get my Christmas tree today. I figured I would put it up today and decorate it on Friday. Last Christmas Ronnie surprised me and took me to the perfect place to buy the tree, Ebenezer Tree Farm, Scituate Rhode Island….

Football and Grinders

“keep calm and watch some football” Today, Isaiah suggested we have grinders for Sunday dinner since it will only be Isaiah, the girls and maybe Anthony. I was excited because now I get to watch the football games and not have to worry about cooking all day. I made my pizza nice and early, I…
