Just the thought of her family's Mississippi plantation is enough                                             to set china Bayles drift on a sea of memories. 

The sweet perfume of magnolia blossoms mixed with the hot, heady smells of the swamp. 

The house, perched on the banks of the Bloodroot River......And the secrets. 

The shameful, stifling secrets that have kept her away for so long........

Oh, here's a thought for the day: maybe we should all make some new friends?  How about a few you can see through?  As in, they're there, but they're not quite there.  Maybe they're a couple of hundred years old....or more.   But hey, we might just get that old some day too.  And they might just be lonely..... and waiting for us to show up for a nice, long, chatty visit.  After all, they could be looking to make some new friends too.  So, what do you say?

Snazz up that empty spot in your house without spending a Lot.

There are so many super great beaches in our country that it was hard for us to pic just a few to highlight, but we did our best.  So, here's a smattering of what we've found to be the most popular, and in many cases the most beautiful.

If you need a sweet pick me up to take to those beaches, there are the classic Rice Krispie Treats, with a twist.

So, How about an Island Vacation? And we don’t mean Hawaii or the Carribbean. Not that there’s anything wrong with Hawaii. It’s beautiful. Gorgeous. And the Carribbean is magnificent. But we thought we’d give you a few more options, especially if you’ve already been to both of these places. So, what island is left? Oh, plenty. So many in fact that we had to choose just a few to highlight here for you, but we think we've chosen some of the best!

Want something different for breakfast?  Or maybe, you feel like breakfast for dinner but don't want just eggs and toast?  Try a Fritatta.  It's easy to  make, and so, soooooo good, and you can put just about anything you want into it.  Like Tomatoes? Throw them in. Onions..yes.  Peppers...yes.  Ham...yes.  Chicken...yes.  But the main ingredient on this one we are talking about today is.......Squash!
