Super Yummy Chocolate Zucchini Brownies ~ Our Favorite Recipe


Every year we always end up with waaaaay too much zucchini. It's a blessing and an interesting culinary challenge all rolled into one. After years of trying to figure out what to do with it all, we've come up with some great recipes to, shall we say, hide it in plain sight.  Personally, my family doesn't mind having zucchini mixed into things, but we know a lot of people who do. That being said, this is a great recipe to use up some of those extra squashes without anyone knowing that it's in there.

Weekly Theatre Update: Part 2


Here we are with our second rehearsal behind us and things are beginning to take shape! I can't even begin to say how excited I am about how well things are going thus far. Starting this week we are focusing on blocking. Blocking is the specific movements during each scene; where the actors move on stage and the actions that bring the story together. The blocking in a scene is anything from a characters entrances and exits, to the usage of props and, something we began focusing on this week, stage fighting.

Good Morning Granola ~ Recipe


We enjoy our granola in the morning (or any time really). It's a nice healthy food, but buying it in the store is expensive and what are all of those crazy sounding ingredients listed on the back?? All the way around, it just worked better for us to make our own, it's so much more cost effective and in the long run way healthier too.

Hello Theatre Season!

Dress rehearsal for our 2013 show, The Scarlet Pimpernel
The time has come, once again, for our theater group to begin preparing for our fall production. I love this time of the year. Rehearsals are just beginning and this is when the creativity begins to be unleashed.

Nope, I Haven't Fallen Off the Face of the Earth

 Oh my, so much for my goal of updating my blog twice a week! 
It's not for want of things to blog about or even the desire to blog. It's been a complete lack of time sit down and do it. I've been crazy busy the past couple of weeks with production prep, gardening, company, auditions, sewing, work..... Life's just been zipping past before I've had time to sit down and get anything written.  So this is just a quick post to pop in and say I will be blogging again... SOON! And I will have a lot to write about, but for the mean time. The blog takes a back seat.... Again.
