Mr. Ken spent last week visiting his mother in South Carolina. Can we say grits anyone? Grits on their own wouldn’t be so bad; they’d probably be bland. But southern style grits call for the butter! He would call me every night to tell me about his day. Here’s an excerpt from one of our […]

As most of you know, I love kayaking. I love it more than Peeps or even chipmunks. There is nothing like being outside in the sunshine and enjoying nature. Being on the water is so soothing. That being said, I have to be really, really careful in the sun. I spent my teenage years baking […]
