Summer nights make me think of crickets, warm breezes, sleeping with the window open, and of course catching fireflies. One of the things I look forward to come summertime, is spending time with my kids. They’re growing up so quickly. I share lots of memories from when I was a little girls with them and…

I love buffalo anything!  Being part Italian, I also love a mean stuffed pepper. As game day approaches, I thought a fun and clever food would be to stuff some peppers up buffalo style. They are easy and super pleasing and of course, peppers help to make this dish healthy. This dish preps up in…

One of my favorite things about the holiday season is growing bulbs indoors. I do this for both Christmas and Easter. There is something about growing flowers indoors during the chilly winter months.  During Christmastime, I especially love growing paperwhites.

I adore peonies. I have loved them since I was a little girl. There is something magical about their fragrant, deep intoxicating blooms and the way that they announce the beginning of summer here in the Northeast. It’s been unseasonable cool here.

Keeping a flock of backyard chickens while raising children is, in my opinion, one of the most wonderful things that you can do as a family. Kids and chickens go hand in hand. From the fresh eggs to life’s lessons, I don’t think that you can chose a better pet. Did I mention that they…

Today we had to go to Boston for an appointment.  We left late morning.  Right before, I went out and visited with the girls.  I fed them scratch, gave them their treats, meal worms and then asked them not to eat any eggs.  I knew that we would be out until sometime after dinner. When…
