Kitchen Keepers Series Guest Blogger


Hey everyone!  I hope all is keeping warm and cozy.  Temps have been a bit frigid – even here in S.C.   If you’ve glanced at the tea towel hanging, I’m sure you’re wondering “why does a So. Carolina girl have a Texas tea towel hanging?”   It’s because it was given to me by my friend Marsha Jones, who blogs at,  a southern lifestyle blog about entertaining, fashion and home decor. Although we’ve been communicating via cyberspace for about a year, I finally had the opportunity to meet her at the Bloggers Conference.  I was honored to be a guest blogger for her new series Kitchen Keeping.  So hop over and pull up a chair to join our conversation and be prepared to jot down a quick recipe I shared for our tete-a-tete.  We’d love for you to join us, so show some love to my girl, Marsha, and don’t forget to say hello!

Winner Announcement


I hope everyone enjoyed their “ringing in” the New Year eve.  Ours was a quiet evening finishing out the final season episodes of Game of Thrones marathon while we dined on Shrimp and Rice and a special vintage bottle of champagne.  This marks 30 years of sharing New Year’s Eve together and it was worth celebrating.


It’s something special about celebrating a New Year coming in and people usually make resolutions,  set goals,  promise to break habits, etc.. but me personally, I’m not going to put myself in that place.  I’ll just stay focus on doing things that make me happy, smile more and stay kind.  Seeing how life can change things so quickly, I just want to enjoy most of it while I can.


I absolutely enjoy having this blog and pray all continues to go well with me being able to maintain it.  Sharing my bit of life with you and being thankful that you take a moment out of your busy life to see what I’m up to is truly a blessing – and Thank You for being there.


Last week I shared a delicious pizza recipe and had a giveaway…. The winner of the spice combo is Ginene Nagel!!!  I have to be honest about the original winner.. it was my son Amir.  I had to laugh because of all people. He hardly ever reads my blog, and it was his first time leaving a comment and he won.  So, I graciously asked him to decline the gift.. and the next winner chosen was Ginene. Congrats to you..perhaps this is a good start of the new year for you 🙂


I won’t be wordy, I just wanted to pop in to announce the winner.. I’ll be back tomorrow with another tasty recipe I served for my family brunch.  So relax, enjoy your day off and we’ll chat soon.
