I’m no different than most of the human population, hoping to start the New Year on a healthy note! The issue for me is that it’s harder to eat healthy during the winter months. (Right!?) Cold weather goes hand in hand with comfort food, and we all know that a cold and crisp salad is anything but comfort food. So, this past weekend I set out to create a warm winter salad that could bring us the best of both worlds. All the nutrition a salad would have with a comfort food feel. It’s delicious and warm and oh, so good!
Scott and I both love Mexican Food. It’s one of my favorite ethnic foods eat and cook. Recently, I made what you’d call a Mexican Lasagna. It had layers, sauce, and cheese. Similar to Italian style lasagna. But with soft tortillas, taco-flavored beef, and sharp cheddar cheese. Since I host a few holiday dinners at the house, it’s nice having some easy and delicious recipes like this one on hand!
The holiday season is upon us, and now is the time to order your holiday cards! Whether it is your annual Christmas or Hanukah Cards, invitations to a holiday party, or Thank-You cards… Basic Invite can help you stay on top of the hustle and bustle with holiday cards for every reason and occasion.
Ok, here is why these are called EASY Holiday Cookies. (Secret, revealed.)
I use an already-made pie crust. Of course you can use a homemade pie crust if you prefer. But, my theory is, why do something that’s already done for you? These cookies are quick, easy, BEAUTIFUL, and oh so good.
They take about 10 minutes to assemble, and the kids love to help roll them up. I’ve been making these, in a pinch, for years. An easy crowd pleaser. Enjoy!
So, you’re hosting Thanksgiving, this year? Congratulations! Or, shall we say, Good Luck? So far, Scott and I have hosted four Thanksgiving Dinners at The House on High Street. Rather successfully. Hosting any holiday dinner can be stressful. I think the best advice I can give you is to plan ahead and pace yourself. I created my own Thanksgiving Countdown! So, here are some tips for you in preparing for one of the greatest holidays, ever. Have fun!
Several years ago, Scott purchased a very tall Christmas Tree at the end of the season, for a great price. It looked beautiful in The House on High Street. But, after several years of use, it was time to replace. I wanted to do some homework, because as you are probably aware, artificial Christmas Trees can be pretty expensive. In this blog post, I’m sharing a few tips that I’ve learned, as far as what to look for, before buying an artificial Christmas Tree.
