Braided Lemon Bread

Braided Lemon Bread

Springtime. Seems like most people associate Easter with Spring, and the fact that Easter came early this year means…so did Spring? Aside from an epic thunderstorm on Saturday night/Sunday morning, I’d say it’s been pretty springlike here in Northern California! You know what else I associate with Spring? LEMON! I love lemon everything. Lemony marinades … Continue reading

Mother’s Day Dinner

Mother’s Day Dinner

Every year, someone in my family has a meltdown on the major holidays. Mother’s Day, birthdays, Christmas, you name it. If it’s an important holiday, someone’s gonna have a meltdown.

Cinco de Mayo Feast

Cinco de Mayo Feast

Of course, having packed my clothes a day earlier, I just happened to be wearing a dress and had no jacket. My coworker … Continue reading
