Grab some fresh peaches and toss 'em on the grill!  This Grilled Peach and Ricotta Flatbread makes for one awesome summer meal!It’s funny how some memories just stick with you.  We were in Nashville visiting my sister recently.  Her daughter (our niece) is almost 16 months old, so she spends her days toddling around the house pulling things out of drawers and feeding beans to the dog.  But my sister pointed out that Blakely will likely not remember anything about our visit.  That’s crazy, but so true.  Those hours spent pushing her in her little car-shaped stroller.  Those hours splashing in the pool.  And, yes, those hours of toddler wailing.  All will be forgotten by the time she gets older.Continue Reading »

As a kid, I loved baseball.  I collected baseball cards.  Lots of baseball cards.  Like boxes and boxes and boxes of baseball cards.  I followed my favorite teams religiously, and I eagerly awaited opening day every year.  But then the baseball strike of 1994 happened.  Half of the season was cancelled along with the playoffs and the World Series.  And somehow in that break, I lost interest in baseball.  I am still a sports addict, but now I turn to football, college basketball, soccer, cycling and even curling before baseball.Continue Reading »

Topped with grilled Cajun shrimp, this Cajun Shrimp Chef Salad makes for one heck of a delicious summer meal!Have you guys ever heard of a Diner en Blanc?  It’s essentially a dinner party where you bring everything with you.  And I mean everything.  Tables, linens, food, candles, floral arrangements…the whole nine yards.  And everything is white.  Apparently this concept began back in the late 80’s in Paris, and the organizer  set a public park as the venue.  In order to know who the diners were, he asked everyone to wear white.  Well, the concept took hold and is now repeated in cities throughout the world.Continue Reading »
