Peanutty Dumpling Salad

So, I made this Peanutty Dumpling Salad months ago and I can’t get it out of my mind. It’s the perfect Springtime dish and, while I love dumplings in all forms, you have to eat a lot to fill you up. This dish, combines salad and veggies with the dumplings, making it seem like aContinue reading “Peanutty Dumpling Salad”

Thanksgiving Vibes & Lost Causes

I seem to be losing a lot of things lately. Last week, I lost two pairs of sunglasses. A pair of aviators, that were a Christmas present from my husband, and a pair of Wayfare-esque ones. I’m not sure where they came from. I could blame it on age, but honestly, I’ve always been somewhatContinue reading “Thanksgiving Vibes & Lost Causes”

Fall in Miami

All the leaves are brown and the sky is grey… The Mamas and Papas Here in Miami, all the leaves aren’t brown, but the sky is grey and rainy, due to incoming Hurricane Ian. Yes, while the rest of the country begins to bundle up for the Fall nip in the air, we here inContinue reading “Fall in Miami”

Yum Yum Shrimp

A Moveable Feast

While I appreciate the sentiment, I have low blood sugar and if I waited till I arrived to eat (keeping in mind you have toContinue reading “A Moveable Feast”

Easy Goat Cheese Appetizer

I thought I would write about an easy appetizer you could whip up for the Holidays in case you have last-minute guests who drop in to spread some cheer, but then I thought…”Who am I kidding?” No one’s just “dropping in” to say hello in the midst of the Coronavirus Pandemic, especially in Miami whereContinue reading “Easy Goat Cheese Appetizer”

Messages from the Dead

Damn you Mercury Retrograde! Mercury retrograde, when the planet of communication reverses course, can cause disruptions to communications of all kinds. This includes verbal or written communications- e-mail, snail mail, phones, computers, etc… Sometimes it’s effects are minor, other times catostrophic. This one, which officially started October 13th, has been a doozy for me! WeContinue reading “Messages from the Dead”
