As soon as my local book club (the fabulous Sleuth Sisters!) first heard about special wine pairings being offered at The Canebrake Resort and Spa in Wagoner, Oklahoma, we knew we needed to “book” one for our group as soon as possible.

2014 World Champion Squirrel Cook Off – Wait, What??
The first time I heard about the World Champion Squirrel Cook Off I thought it sounded, well, nuts. Yet last Saturday I found myself standing in the middle of a crowded festival in Bentonville, Arkansas holding a sample of cooked squirrel pot pie. How did that happen?!

It’s Valentine’s Day and I wanted to write about my new love – a gorgeous stainless steel electric range I’ve been eyeing for months and finally decided to commit to. Why did it take so long? Because when I moved into my house a year and a half ago, the kitchen had an old drop-in […]
