The Magic of Mornings
Growing up, I was up with the sun, too curious to oversleep and miss out on something happening in the world. I remember vividly when Momma (my mom’s mom) would stay over.

When I stayed with my Grandma (my dad’s mom) and Pop, it was a running joke about how long I had been lying awake waiting to hear one of them in the kitchen, so I knew I could come out of the spare room without waking them up.

'Tis the Season for Pomegranates
It’s pomegranate time, and that makes this gal very happy. I love walking into a grocery store and seeing them on sale at the front of the produce section. Granted, they take a little effort to hack into and get the arils out, but it’s totally worth the effort.

Roasting Pumpkin Seeds
The Halloween season brings with it spooky and ghoulish jack-o-lanterns, and while I thoroughly enjoy watching the kids carve pumpkins and even sometimes carving them myself, my favorite part of the experience is roasting the seeds afterward.
