Are you ready for the holidays? I adore the holiday season. It is an absolute sensory overload for me. The sights, smells, and sounds are distinct and often tied to a memory that warms the heart.  Of course, the tastes are high on my list of sensory experiences that make the holidays what they are.

Treat of the Week: Chocolate Banana Pudding

Banana pudding is one of my favorite desserts. For me, comfort food usually comes in a savory form. This is about as close to sweet comfort food as you can get. This week we decided to try something new. Our banana pudding is generally made with vanilla wafers, but we switched it up with some ChewySoft Chocolate Fudge Cookies instead. The result was amazing.  We […]

As holidays go, Easter sort of gets the short end of the stick. It has all of the makings of a great holiday, but never quite the same oomph. There is candy, a fun, lovable character, and customs and traditions.

Hello, Fall!  Good to see you again, old friend. This week we welcome fall with open arms. The weather has finally changed for good. It is still significantly warmer here in Dallas than where I grew up for this time of year, but cooler nonetheless. The signs are not quite as clear as in those […]

I’m impatient. There, I’ve said it. No matter how I try, it is one of the things I must continually try to improve. I will say that I have become more patient with age, but not nearly patient enough. At this time of year, my impatience is abundant. I simply cannot wait for fall. I […]
