Spicy Tilapia

Spiced Tilapia with Roasted Pepper-Tomatillo Sauce

It's been a while since I made this spiced tilapia with roasted red pepper-tomatillo sauce from Cooking Light.  Tilapia is such a mild fish that I usually do something to kick up the flavor a little bit and this recipe works perfectly.    I could eat the fish without the sauce and the sauce without the fish (if that makes any sense) because alone they taste good, together they taste great.  Even my 2-year old daughter and 15-year old step-son both enjoyed this recipe and let me tell you, both of … Read More>

Marinade - Chicken in the Bag

The Best Marinade Ever

Seriously, it really is the best marinade ever.  I go back and forth between dry rubs and wet ones and for pieces of meat that can dry out quickly on the grill, I prefer wet marinades.  I've tried several marinade recipes over the years and I keep going back to this one.  It marries well with beef or chicken but my personal preference is on chicken.  Best of all, it uses simple ingredients that most everyone has in their pantry! Ingredients: 1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce 3/4 cup … Read More>

Forget About The Owies With The Band-Aids Magic Vision App Featuring The Muppets

I'm sure all the parents out there can relate to this scenario.  Your child is playing outside: running, laughing and having a great time and then out of no where you hear a piercing scream and lots of sobs.  As you rush to see what happen, you see the slightest of scratches.  Since mommy kisses don't work like they used to at my house, I have to whip out Band-Aids. Sometimes though, those scratches are a little more serious and may require some attention before putting on the Band-Aid.  I … Read More>

GE Lighting Before & After

Seeing The Light With #GELighting

I am your resident night owl.  When most people are winding down for the evening, I'm just getting started.  I think I get that from my mother.  She never was a morning person and neither am I.  Sure, I can get up early if there is a flight to be caught or I really have to go to the bathroom but other than that, I try not to.  I believe the sun should be up before me and not the other way around. Because I do the majority of my work at night, I need great lighting in my office. … Read More>


John Carter on Blue-ray & DVD

John Carter will be released on Blue-ray and DVD on June 5th but why buy it when you can win the combo here?  If you haven't heard about this movie, it's definitely one for the science fiction buffs in your family.  I tend to be open to all genres of movies, including science fiction.  I will say this movie was a little difficult for me to follow but I'm sure part of that was because I was trying to get a 2-year to fall asleep. The story is set in the 1880's and revolves around a Civil War … Read More>

Rizzoli and Isles Season 2

Remember Me? Rizzoli & Isles Season 3 Begins Next Week

Have you ever had a past relationship that you want to end but for some reason you never can quite end it?  Fortunately for me, I can't say that I have a relationship like that.  I've done a very good job over my 30+ years of only surrounding myself with people that I want to be around and who are positive influences in my life.  Sure we all have those people that we can't do anything about (I believe they are called family...haha) but that doesn't mean you have to spend your time and energy … Read More>


The Top 5 Songs of 1992

As my husband was going through all of our camping gear from our backyard camping staycation, he came across a box that said "diplomas" and "Sarah running medal."  Expecting to find those exact things, I was shocked when I opened the box and also found my graduation tassel, some senior portraits and ticket stubs from the concerts I went to in high school!  Timing could not have been better as in a few weeks my 20th class reunion will be taking place.  Seeing those concert stubs brought back many … Read More>
