Did you know today is 'National Soup Swap Day'? It's similar to a Cookie Exchange, but instead of exchanging cookies, everyone exchanges soup. What a fabulous idea during the colder months. The article I read about a soup swap suggested 6 to 8 participants, exchanging 1 quart each of soup. You could even make a night of it bringing an extra quart to share together during a girl's night with dinner. Sounds fun to me!!!
However you decide to make and share my "Cream of Potato Soup", I hope you will love it as much as my family and I do. Let me know what you think if you do try it.

My mom used to make this soup often when my siblings and I were growing up. It always tasted so good, especially since it was so cold in Minnesota. Perhaps it has a more formal name, but we always called it, "Mom's Cheese Soup!" and that's just fine with me! :)

Christmas in Texas…that was a first for Mark and me and all 4 kids! Since our children are now teens to young adults, we wanted to do something different. Instead of spending money on ‘things’, I wanted us to spend the money on ‘making memories’! With Eric, our eldest, getting married in April, this was the last Christmas with just the 6 of us. Plus, since his fiancé, Alice, is from London, I’m sure the two of them will be spending several Christmas’ in England. Therefore, off we went to Dallas to do some fun thing... Continue Reading

6 boxes Walker's shortbread cookies
2 cups of milk chocolate wafers
2 cups dark chocolate wafers
1 cup of red and/or green peppermint candies or candy canes (crushed)
This "recipe" is not in either of my cookbooks, nor does it involve any baking. I simply take a cookie I already love and "decorate" it making it even better.
It's actually one of my go-to cookie "recipes" during the holidays, because it's fast and easy. Perfect for anyone who is short on time and loves chocolate and shortbread.
This is also a great recipe for getting the kids involved. As ... Continue Reading

We have gone to two funerals and a wedding together in less than one year. Those experiences bring friends even closer! I'm talking about Lisa Robertson and me.
It is with mixed emotions that we say goodbye to Lisa at the Q. We will definitely miss her, but she has worked tirelessly day and night, day after day for years, and does she deserve a little 'me' time? Absolutely!!! She has poured her heart and soul into the Q, as well as blood, sweat, and tears for 20 years and has put up with sore feet, meals on the rush, very little sleep, long 14 hour days sometimes, and no time for much o...

You wouldn’t expect to see me in a bar, but my social media partner and friend, Erika, and I took a day trip to the Big Apple a few weeks ago to visit the Drybar.
At 30th Street Station in Philadelphia
At Penn Station in NYC; we have arrived!
What is a Dry Bar? It is a salon that specializes in, and only offers blow outs after they shampoo your hair. Not cuts, no color, just a wonderful blow out with a fabulous style of your choice. And all of the styles have cute “bar” and “drink” names. I do not drink, but this type of bar is right up my alley, ... Continue Reading

Caramel Apple Dip
1 cup brown sugar
1 block of cream cheese
1 container of caramel apple dip
1/2 bag of toffee bits

With a hand mixer, mix the brown sugar with the cream cheese and spread in the bottom of a shallow dish at least as large as a pie plate or larger. Microwave the caramel apple dip just to soften it up but not too warm. Pour it over the bottom layer. Then sprinkle the toffee bits and chocolate chip bits over the top. Slice up the apples and dip away!
Refrigerate any leftover... Continue Reading
