You know Bonne Maman, don’t you? Those gorgeous preserves, jams, and jellies with that signature red gingham lid – known for their excellent quality and superior taste. I first tasted Bonne Maman in their home country – that’s right – on a trip to Paris. But since then, if I’m not making my own jam, […]

It’s officially Autumn. The windows are flung wide open, and I’m in full-on hot drink addiction mode. When the weather turns cool, I will happily drink coffee, tea, and apple cider all. Day. LONG.

Much as James loathes tomatoes, (which I can eat straight from the vine like an apple, happily), I simply cannot abide blueberries. There are two exceptions to this rule, and […]

These may be my new favorite wine o’clock snack. For serious. Can anything make you feel more adult and grown up than a glass of crisp delicious wine and a few homemade nibbles to go with it? I found this recipe for Cheese Herb Crisps on Sargento’s website and immediately knew I’d be making it […]

Last week was pretty crazy around here. Between celebrating B & B’s anniversary, and dealing with a very sick cat that ended up in the Vet ER for several days, I thought I might lose a little bit of my mind. Milo before he got poorly sick, on his favorite blankie. It used to be […]
