Halloween Dinner for the Grown Ups

Halloween dinner

The kids have gone trick or treating, pictures have been taken, the doorbell has stopped ringing and the costumes have been packed away for another year. Since  this year Halloween is on a Friday—that means you can set aside Saturday for a  grown-up dinner party with a Halloween theme.

The Most Spooktacular Halloween Treats!

Halloween Treats

The last couple of Halloweens, our house has acquired the reputation of being the “must visit” house on the street! You know, the house everyone remembers and wants to visit first?  Yup…lol… that's us! We have always tried to give out something a little different from the usual bag of chips. Some years we made up little treat bags filled with lots of little goodies, some years we handed out  juice boxes and a couple of times we even tried giving out chocolate bars. However, the bars always … [Read more...]

The Twisted Sisters Visit Hopewell Rocks, New Brunswick

Hopewell Rocks

A few weeks ago my sisters and I went on a little girls getaway.  As I mentioned in my post outlining our trip to Cape Enrage, N.B., we only had a couple of days, so didn't want to venture too far.  We decided to have a staycation in our home province of New Brunswick.  We wanted to explore, or re-explore in some cases, the beautiful Fundy coastline. We rented the cutest little cabin in the tiny hamlet of New Horton, N.B., planned some delicious meals, packed our suitcases and coolers and … [Read more...]

Potato & Bread Dressing

Potato & Bread Dressing

Your senses have a fabulous way of erasing the years.  Listening to music from your high school or university days has the power to transport you back in time.  The same is true for smell and taste.  You cannot sniff the heavenly aroma of  spiced apple cider and not think of Thanksgiving and  Christmas. What about the taste of eggnog, shortbread cookies or cranberries...the same thing. One of the ultimate time erasing tastes and smells for me, is that of homemade dressing.   I cannot smell … [Read more...]

TARGET REDcard ~ Myths and Facts {w/Special Offer}

Target REDcard

Have you signed up for a Target REDcard? Not yet? Are you thinking it's a credit card only and you already have enough of those? That's what I thought too, but, I was wrong. On recent trips to Target® I had seen signs all over the store advertising their REDcard program.  What really caught my eye was saving 5% on just about everything in the store.  Like most people, I am all about paying as little as possible for my purchases. I knew I did not want another credit card, but had a few … [Read more...]
