March 10, 2014

I don’t know about you, but I’m over all this yucky cold weather and ready for some sunshine and warmth.  Luckily for me, we’ve had some very nice spring-ish weather the past couple days here in Atlanta.  Not so lucky for me, I’m in the middle of tax season. Boo! During the fall and winter, […]

Cajun Chicken Pasta

June 24, 2012

Call it Cajun chicken pasta, jambalaya pasta, or blackened chicken pasta, but this is one of the dishes I tend to gravitate towards when we go out to eat.  There’s just something about the combination of spicy, creamy, and calorific that calls to me.  I’m sure you understand.

Sauce of Desperation

February 21, 2011

Fast-forward through Friday

February 27, 2010

Usually I look forward to Fridays, but yesterday couldn’t end soon enough for me! We had a big project to work on yesterday for one of the clients I work on and it involved both the tax and accounting groups, and of course there was lots of last-minute drama. Breakfast was a hurried affair, which […]

3rd Annual New Year’s Day Lunch

January 1, 2010

Well, we have survived yet another New Year’s Day Lunch! As usual, there are TONS of leftovers.   Not because the food sucked, but because I am my mother’s daughter and made way too much food for fear that I would run out of food. I wish I had remembered to take pictures of everything before […]
