RESTAURANT DINING AT HOME

We all miss dining out. One day soon (we hope), we will dine out again, but until then we can still have our favorite restaurant food through curb-side-pickup, arrange a new dining experience at home and have the best of both worlds… well, almost! A patio, balcony, porch or garden […]

APPLE BAKLAVA

Traditional American Dessert? Most would think of Apple Pie. Traditional Middle Eastern/Greek Dessert? Most would think of Baklava/Baklawa. So, why not combine both fabulous desserts into one! Apple Baklava, or Baklawa as I would prefer since I am of Syrian heritage, but most people only know of Baklava, so… Apple […]

TEA AND COOKIES

Simple Pleasures these days. I’ve been writing 🤫 Two hours a day I make myself stop the busyness of the day, make tea and a nibble, and go sit where I can hear birds, smell earth, and write. Many of you have encouraged me to write stories I’ve never been […]

DREAMS ARE LIKE SEEDS…

What if, the Universe pressed pause to give us something… What if, we were given a weird gift of time, time to gather our dreams, with time to plant them… No, this is really not about gardening, it is about YOU, us, with a hidden message in this story. Yes, […]

MASKS FOR FOOD SERVICE INDUSTRIES

Essential businesses? None, outside the hospital is more essential than those who are keeping America fed! I have been sewing since I was twelve-years of age, fashion and home decor being what attracted me in the first place, but in the fear to preserve our health and well being, sewing […]
