Bright Lights Big City!


Last post I told you changes were brewing.  I wasn’t kidding.  And how!  We are moving our happy selves to the city! Yep! That is happening.  Over the next 6 weeks or so we will be embarking on a huge adventure.

We have lived in this little country cottage for over 17 years.  And Jerry and I have lived in the country for well over 30 years.  So there are going to be adjustments but you know, it’s just time.  With my ongoing health issues and his travels for work, it just makes sense.  The time is right.  And the majority of our family lives in the area we are moving to.  I am going to give you a little tour now of our new digs.  There will be more on all the particulars later but for now I wanted to share with you this most exciting news.




Okay, there you go – a few pictures. I WILL be back, I promise.  Likely with some CRAZY give aways!  It is past time for me to pare down my collections.  Aprons, cookbooks, etc etc.  So I hope you will stay tuned.  Subscribe to my blog feed and you won’t miss a thing!


Great NEW Book from Gooseberry Patch! The Harvest Table and NEW Bakeware from Chinet!


I think every time I open a package from Gooseberry Patch that the book I pull out is my favorite.  I think “OH this one is the best so far.”  They just keep doing it right peeps.  I love EVERYTHING about this book from front to back.


Adorbs cover don’t you think? So imagine my delight when I got TWO great packages this week.  Chinet, you know Chinet, THE brand to go to for all your disposable tableware,  well they are taking a BIG old step.  They are launching a line of  disposable bakeware! And I was asked to try this new product and put my two cents in.  I will be testing several sizes, in my new apron that was in the box 🙂 You know I love aprons!  I was VERY happy to see that the new line of disposible bakeware is made from 90% recycled material.  Here’s a little blurb from their website:

The first disposable baking dishes that let you take your food from oven to table to freezer to microwave, all in one attractive, non-stick pan. And because it’s from the Chinet brand, strength and stability are built in. Bakeware is designed to be sturdy and dependable no matter what you’ve got cooked up. And not only does it look good, but you can leave it behind without worrying about losing your favorite permanent pan.

Yep, that’s how they roll.  Convenient, sturdy, all in one, lovely celery green outside and non stick on the inside.  And like the website said,  no worries about losing a pan!

Check back in tomorrow when I hit you with not only a terrific recipe for Gobble-Good Turkey Bake but I will tell you all about my experience with this NEW Chinet  bakeware.  AND how you can enter to win not only a copy of Gooseberry Patch’s new book The Harvest Table, but some lucky ducky will get to try the NEW Chinet bakeware because they will be mailing some to try! Very cool, don’t you think?  Oh and you can check out their website for more product info.

And I don’t know about you but the first warm weather (hot really) I start planning for Autumn all the wonderful things that go along with it.  And I am going to help you out with some recipes courtesy of Gooseberry Patch!  See you tomorrow!

NOTE: I am required by the FTC to disclose to you all that I received the Chinet Bakeware products free of charge.
