Our poor dog, Milou, woke up yesterday morning with a sore back. I figured it out when he hopped onto our bed and gave the saddest cry I've ever heard.
We're making sure he gets the right medical care, but in the meantime, the vet said it wouldn't hurt to give him a set of pet stairs for getting onto our bed.
Amy George, The News-Gazette's director of market development and special projects, recently made these Double Chocolate Espresso Cookies for the employees in our digital media department who've been working intensively on redesigning our website.
I got to sample one (or two) today and they are so deliciously good. Bonus: my hands are now shaking from the caffeine.
I haven't had much to say on my blog this week, because I honestly don't know what to say.
There's been so much static and bad news, between people dying in explosions and Illinois residents having to flee their homes because of flood waters and so much other bad news.
Rob's birthday was yesterday, and he requested a Funfetti cake.
I love to make things you'd usually buy from scratch, so when I found a recipe for homemade Funfetti cake, I jumped at the chance.
I made a pork roast for dinner Saturday night, and the spice mix I used tasted really good.
I thought I'd share it. I added a cup of apple juice after it cooked about 30 minutes, and it made the vegetables really soft. I won't do this again, but I figured I'd include it for those of you who like your veggies to cook to that texture.
This happens just about every spring, but I've been on a gardening kick lately. I've actually been enjoying weeding and have divided and transplanted 22 plants so far.
The next step, I'm hoping, is to create a space where I can read in the back yard.
I resolved this year to make our house more appealing from the curb.
Our front steps stopped holding paint a while back, and they're starting to rot.
I totally hacked an Easter wreath last month, but I was in the mood to actually make one today, so I went with it.
Lately, Rob and I have been eating chicken fajitas like nobody's business. They're easy to make, taste good and are pretty healthy.
I've blogged before about making fajitas from leftover steak. This version is similar but calls for fresh boneless, skinless chicken breast. So, I figured they deserved their own post.
A while back, I wrote a blog post about antiques I'd buy if I could only find them - even if it took some finangling to figure out where to put them in our tiny house.
