There use to be a television show in the mid-1980's to the mid-1990's called 'Lifestyles of the RIch and Famous', hosted by Robin  Leach. His signature phrase 'champagne wishes and caviar dreams' was his way, albeit ostentatiously, of wishing everyone the best in life....

As 2014 comes to a close, I decided to reflect on this past year. It's been a phenonmenal year for us, jam-packed with adventures, milestones and some pretty darn good eats! In June of 2014, this blog sprang to life and since that time, we've had over 10,000 page views...

Yesterday was one of those days where I wasn't sure what I was in the mood for when it came to figuring out what I was going to cook for supper.(See? I am 'normal' afterall!).  Everything I considered, my inner voice would reply 'nnaaahhh' to. After suggesting chicken,...
