I will be having a Cyber Monday sale on my entire shop site! Starting midnight tonight until midnight tomorrow, Monday. Every single item in my shop site will be 20% no exceptions! Great time to shop:)


Hi there, by the time you read this I will be away and? hopefully basking in the warm sun. A few days away for a little R and R, kind of like the calm before the storm (that would be the holidays). I plan to relax and go on a mini vacation mode and even left my diet in NY:) I LOVE the holidays but know I have a very busy month ahead and am gearing up!

Hope this posts on time and look forward to a few days away. Hoping you are having a wonderful weekend. I will be back on Tuesday, and will have my sleeves rolled up and ready for the holiday hoopla to begin! Here is my seven on Sunday for this week…..

4 ONE GREAT POT OF SOUP. I love soup and make it on average twice a week during the winter months. A loaf of crusty bread and you are good to go. One of my favorites (and my families too) is my pasta fagiole soup. It is easy but sooo good and satisfying and because you add pasta at the end, it really can double as a meal. So below is the recipe! It also freezes really well (but do not add the pasta as it could get mushy)-



2 tablespoons (2 turns around the pan) extra-virgin olive oil
1/8 pound (about 3 slices) pancetta, chopped
2 (4 to 6-inch) sprigs rosemary, left intact
1 (4 to 6-inch) sprig thyme with several sprigs on it, left intact
1 large fresh bay leaf or 2 dried bay leaves
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1 small carrot, finely chopped
1 rib celery, finely chopped
4 large cloves garlic, chopped
Coarse salt and pepper
2 (15 ounce) cans cannellini beans
1 cup canned tomato sauce or canned crushed tomatoes
2 cups water
1 quart chicken stock
1 1/2 cups ditalini
Grated Parmigiano or Romano, for the table
Crusty bread, for mopping



Heat a deep pot over medium high heat and add oil and pancetta. Brown the pancetta bits lightly, and add herb stems, bay leaf, chopped vegetables, and garlic. Season vegetables with salt and pepper. Add beans, tomato sauce, water, and stock to pot and raise heat to high. Bring soup to a rapid boil and add pasta. Reduce heat to medium and cook soup, stirring occasionally, 6 to 8 minutes or until pasta is cooked al dente. Rosemary and thyme leaves will separate from stems as soup cooks. Remove herb stems and bay leaf from soup and place pot on table on a trivet. Let soup rest and begin to cool for a few minutes. Ladle soup into bowls and top with lots of grated cheese. Pass crusty bread for bowl mopping.

6 A TRULY FABULOUS MOVIE I love great movies and when I see one that I love…….really love,? I can watch it over and over. Enter “The Way”. Starring an unbelievable Martin Sheen and his son Emilio Estavez who both deliver stellar performances……this is one of the best movies I have ever seen. No nudity profanity, violence,etc…just a beautiful and super moving slice of life movie.

The storyline is so touching and poignant, I guarantee you will love this movie plus the European countryside is a really nice “extra”. There? are several scenes that are so moving, they just stir something inside that few movies can. We watched it over the Thanksgiving break (again) and I just had to recommend it to all you movie buffs out there!

7. A FABULOUS GIFT WRAPPING LINE. I discovered this wonderful line via good ol Instagram and just in love with what they do. If you are like me and love and cannot get enough of beautiful giftwrap you must click here to visit Citrine Living....such a beautiful line of giftwrap!!

Hi Tina always enjoy these posts on Sunday. I always learn something and your silver coming in is just beautiful. My brother in law and wife actually walked The Camino de Santiago a few years ago and said it was one of the best experiences of their life. It is a pretty incredible feat.

I got my dough bowl and pair of jars last week and could not be happier! The quality is fantastic and prices are so reasonable. Love your site and will be taking advantage of your cyber monday sale.

I need to order those darling dog bowls for my two cuties, Pina and Colada. Have a lovely time away Tina.

Tina, I hope you are basking in the sun on the beach these few days before the rest of the holiday rush! We have freezing sleet right now!

Thankfully your Seven on Sunday brightens up my day! so many great recommendations, and I love how you find unique artists of all kinds.

Thank you for sharing one of your “go to” recipes. It adds another dimension to your blog and in an area I always anticipate your next sharing. This soup looks delicious!!

Hi Tina… Hope you had a great Thanksgiving and you are enjoying your get away. Thanks for the recommendation of “The Way.” I got teary eyed watching the trailer so I can imagine how I will be watching the actual movie. Enjoy your week. It’s suppose to get pretty nippy around here.
