If you want to create filling meals that don’t take any time at all then I have just what you need. The recipes below are not only quick, tasty, and healthy, but they also won’t cost a lot to make. We all have days where you are in a crunch and need to have dinner on the table in minutes. If this were winter, I would start with a few sheet pan meals which has the complete meal in one pan. For me it is already summer hot here in Florida, and I will save sheet pan meals for fall and winter. I will, however, include Stuffed Peppers as they are a favorite of mine, but they do take a few more minutes to fix.Read More
Photos today courtesy of my friend Terri in Nashville, Tennessee.
Several weeks ago I shared my friend Terri’s garden outside of Nashville, Tennessee. Her backyard is next to a wooded area. One of her loves is spotting deer coming into her yard. She can only take photos from inside the home to not scare her wild visitors.Read More
A few days ago I wrote about summer maintenance tasks for the garden: weeding, mowing, and weed and feed for lawns. Today I’d like to talk about projects in the garden to enhance your enjoyment. If you’re lucky enough to have outside space at home, are you making the most of it?

When the weather is nice, the garden essentially gives you another ‘room’ in your home to enjoy. Here are a few ideas that can help you create or improve your special space and make the most of your garden.Read More
One evening in a friend’s neighborhood a colorful sunset seemed to be just on the horizon. Beautiful colors were captured just as the sun set. I missed the beginning but am happy I was there for the end.Read More
Several years ago I wrote a post with a printable checklist for spring home maintenance. That’s when you clean, review, and repair after winter is over. Spring is the perfect time to perform routine maintenance to prevent flooding and fires.Read More
I love the ease of slow cooker meals. Today’s recipe is a tasty pork chop recipe. Put it on low for 5 hours and the meat is tender and falling apart. The sauce is so tasty. I like it with rice and broccoli, but it works well with baked potatoes or mashed potatoes too.Read More
Today’s photos are just a small collection of Florida skies around my area. I live on the west coast of Florida northwest of Tampa. Blue skies are the norm here; clouds come and go. I made mosaics of clouds and sky. Enjoy!Read More
