About Me

My photo

Life is beautiful whether you're soaking in sunshine or caught in a thunderstorm. I take the beauty of life for granted too often. I have a supportive husband who I don't want to live life without, a beautiful son who is always reminding me of the simple things that really matter, and an independent daughter who is teaching me to throw schedules out the window and live in the moment. My day is made when free samples fill my mailbox. I love discovering a new product and sharing it with others. I hope you will enjoy reading my posts and will share your stories with me as well.

New Recipes and New Ingredients

So I've been on a roll watching the Food Network Channel lately.  I've fallen back in love with Giada at Home and Barefoot Contessa.  Tonight I'm making a new dish called Couscous-Stuffed Peppers with Basil Sauce.  I'll be honest and say it was my first time ever buying couscous, garbanzo beans, currants, and I had to ask for help on what crème fraiche was and where it was located.  This is a good experience for me to venture out and try new recipes.  I can be pretty picky with food but watching Giada make these gorgeous stuffed peppers made me want to be just like her! 
Thanks to my sister-in-law, I'm going to be better about stocking my fridge with fresh fruits and veggies.  One of our local produce stands offers THE BOX, which is $15 for an assorted box of fresh fruits and vegetables.  I pick up mine tomorrow!
I'm really excited about the new recipes and new foods our family will be trying in the next couple of weeks.  I might just change my mind that eating new foods can be fun!
