Throwback Thursday – Lake Isaac

Lake Isaac is in the Big Creek Reservation in the Cleveland Metroparks. Not sure if it is technically in Berea or Strongsville, but it’s really pretty! If you go back into the woods there is an area FULL of Dame’s Rocket and it just looks like a sea of purple. It’s hard to catch though….

Tortellini and Kale Soup

Even as the weather starts to warm up I am still on a soup kick. I pretty much always love eating soup, unless it is 90 degrees out. As usual I am very happy with the fact that this recipe is so tasty, but does not call for an obnoxious amount of ingredients – which…

Seafood Bake

Unfortunately, this is another one I don’t have an exact recipe for. I really need to start writing amounts and times down when we are just winging it in the kitchen.

Manicotti

I don’t have an exact recipe for this because Scott sort of combined multiple recipes and then we doubled everything and then we kind of added things in as we went. Ha! Getting veggies ready for the sauce. I don’t think I’ve ever had red sauce with carrots or celery in it before. I actually…

Our Little Pack

CHEESE!

Kano really likes cheese.

A French Kiss

Bubble Bar Time! Lavender oil, lavender absolute and cocoa butter! It also smells like rosemary and thyme. Smelled good, very pretty water and lots of bubbles of course! I really liked the little sprig of lavender coming out of it, too. There is a bar in Sandusky that has lavender margaritas that has a sprig…

Throwback Thursday – 2010 – Nail Art!

I used to be really into nail art. I would use acrylic paint and do all sorts of designs. I sort of stopped when I started serving because they would chip within a day. Now I just don’t have that much time. And I am way out of practice. Maybe one day soon I will…

Black Pepper Salmon and Sauteed Spinach

I don’t have an exact recipe for this. It was just something to throw together quick because the black pepper salmon at Fresh Thyme looked so good. Saute the onions for a little while first since they are going to take a lot longer to cook down than the spinach. Some people prefer oil, but…
