Moving on

Moving on

I can still remember my first apartment like it was yesterday.  A cute one bedroom, two blocks from the beach, close to restaurants and bars and all of the essentials. My rent was next to nothing compared to these days.  Having my first apartment, meant independence, I could do anything I damn well pleased! I [...]

SWEET TOMATOES

SWEET TOMATOES

I love a fresh tomato sauce and it's the perfect season for sweet cherry and grape tomatoes at the market.  What to have for dinner is easy when you have these lovelies... 2 pints or more of cherry/grape tomatoes halved extra virgin olive oil 2 cloves garlic, smashed and minced large handful of fresh basil [...]

DIVORCED

DIVORCED

It's official, I'm divorced. Another first, making me a statistic and joining thousands of other unsuccessful marriages.
