Where Are They Now?

October 10th, 2012

Did you think I was referring to the past American Idol winners or teen stars of a popular 80s sitcom or flick?  (I love those shows by the way).  No, I’m referring to something else, but first, there are some questions that come to mind when I look at this image.

What ever happened to Emilio?  How is it humanly possible that Rob still looks so amazing?  Who else loved Ralph on Dancing with the Stars?  #ageless  How unforgettable was Patrick as Johnny Castle?  Who’s that guy in the middle next to Matt?  Will Tom ever convince a gal to become wife #4?  These things I wonder about. 

Back to my point.  I was asked the other day about all that furniture I’ve dragged home from thrift stores and revamped over the years, so I’m here to answer the question, where are they now? 

These are the pieces I still own and have sitting somewhere in my house:

Comfort Food Link Party Comin’ Up!

October 10th, 2012

I realized I haven’t published a recipe in months and there’s really no excuse for that.  I prepared a lot of favorite dishes over the summer but never got around to photographing any of them.  I’ll just blame the general laziness of summer.  I made homemade garlic hummus and grilled artichokes with lemon aioli and other ‘sounds kinda fancy but really so simple’ dishes and I really do have to be better about sharing. 

So yesterday, I was craving one of my favorite comfort foods and I made it and I photographed it and oh my it was completely divine and satisfied my comfort food craving.  My taste buds were in heaven but my waistline is a little annoyed – there is an ongoing battle between them you know.

Now that fall has arrived I’m sure you’ve got a few great comfort food recipes to share so let’s have a party, mkay?   Next Tuesday, right here.

Bring your favorite comfort food recipe to the Link Party on Tuesday and then we’ll all take a nap afterward because that’s the whole point of making these recipes, right? 

Can’t wait to see what you cook up!
