Teachers change lives. No doubt about that! I taught for 8 years, and I loved each one — each year and each student. Sure, some were easier to love than others, but each of “my kids” was special. Even now, after being away from the classroom for almost 20 years, hardly a day goes by […]

Peeps — the ultimate Easter candy. Honestly, I don’t even like them. But, I can’t deny they capture the Easter season, with its color and sweetness. I thought I would wish you all a Happy Easter with some fun marshmallow creations. Since we’re celebrating the Lord’s resurrection, let’s begin with a Peeps diorama of a […]

Menu Plan Monday arrives again. I’m feeling in need of an easy cooking week, so this week features several days of really quick and easy meals. I like, though, that even if I just open a box of pierogies and add Ragu (I know from several of you that this is weird), it still is […]
