Hi there, hope you are enjoying a wonderful first weekend of Feb. I am personally counting down the days until spring…I am so over winter.Not a flake of snow (well there was a little bit when I was away) but otherwise its been gloomy, cloudy and blah. Bring spring on!

Anyway with luck we will be away to warmer climate for a few days this weekend, look forward to little break with friends, and hope this posts on time.Onward to my post…

3 INSTAGRAMS OF INTEREST Always love to share what caught my eye on instagram this week…


4 A HEAVENLY GOOD TERIYAKI SALMON BOWL This is so incredibly delicious and flavorful, and could also be used with other fish or chicken but I think its especially great with salmon. Been on a very regular rotation over there! Here is what you need-

What you need-

  • about 1-1.5 lb salmon
  • 3-4 avocado
  • 5-8 Kirby cucumbers
  • Jasmine rice
  • 3 cloves slivered garlic
  • 3 fresh scallions finely chopped
  • sesame seeds



  • 1 cup water
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • 5 teaspoons packed brown suga
  • 1 tablespoon honey, or more to taste
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • ¼ cup cold water


In small saucepan add all ingredients for sauce except 1/4 cup cold water and cornstarch. Mis all ingredients together then add cornstarch and cold water. Stir until dissolved and it has thickened, if you want it a little thiner, simply add a bit of water. I normally add some of the sesame seeds to my sauce

Clean fish, liberally add garlic salt and fresh pepper. Pour a generous amount of sauces over entire salmon. Add slivered garlic, scallions and spinkle generously with sesame sees. Put in preheated oven (350 degrees) and cook approved 20 min. I normally turn it broil last few minutes for a bit of a crispy edge.

In meantime, you should have cooked your jasmine rice, I use a rice cooker. Cut up the avocados and cucumber into thin slices. Arrange about a cup of rice in center of bowl add a cut of the salmon on side, cucumber and avocado on other side, sprinkle sesame seeds over it and a little bit of the scallions if so desire. This is also fantastic cold/room temp!



5 JUST FOR LAUGHS My dear dad sent me a bunch of these with the subject “we are doomed”, I cannot argue:)



6 ABOUT THOSE LATTICE BARS! So I featured this magnificent lattice bar several months ago that I had one of my manufactures  custom make for me and the response was incredible. Many of you wanted to know how you could order one. So  the time has come, where we are designating one shipping  container to these bars (they will ship sometime in March). This is a one shot deal.

We have all the info ready to send out. If you want info emailed to you, please email [email protected] and put in subject line “bar”. You will receive information within the next 5 days on how to order, pricing,all details…


7 SUNDAY’S SURVEY  Always fun and interesting to hear your opinions. My husband and I go out socially 2+ a week . We love getting to see friends and family and do have a few favorite restaurants we like going to. HOWEVER, we both agree that for the most part, the restaurant outings are really about socializing and not so much the food anymore.

We have seen a huge decline in food overall (or we are getting a lot pickier)! Even our favorites are good but not incredible. And we are talking NY where we have a plethora of wonderful choices of where to eat. We always enjoy going out but literally every time, agree that a home cooked meal beats a restaurant meal almost every time. Not to take away the  enjoyment of  the experience of going out however.  Curious what you think?


And that’s a wrap for this Sunday! Hope you enjoyed the post. Wishing everyone a wonderful and relaxing Sunday. Until next time….

Love your father’s “we are doomed” entries. My family’s favorite is an invitation we received for a “bomb fire”!

OMG! My two biggest pet peeves are bad grammar and poor spelling. We have texting on phones to thank for that. My daughter-in-law, who is a teacher, told me that students don’t even have spelling tests anymore. Is it any wonder, students don’t know how to spell? The signs from your dad were, sadly, very funny.
I think going out to a restaurant for a fine dining experience has certainly changed. The portion size is continually getting smaller and one of my favorite restaurants is limiting one ball of butter for two people! Of course, the prices keep going up! And, people go into these restaurants dressed too casually and many times don’t know how to order or which fork to use.

My daughter (17 years old) would agree with you about going to restaurants. She LOVES to cook and is very good. When I say let us go out to a restaurant she replies with “Why, I can cook it better at home” and she isn’t wrong.

Totally enjoyed the Homeworthy post !! I’m looking So Forward to the pastel cabbage ware that should be coming in soon !!

I know I can cook better at home but we should truly get out more. Since COVID I became used to being home. After all this, I don’t like to go anywhere now. My husband does not feel the same. I don’t feel I am missing anything and am much happier at home but on some level know this is not the best way to be. We’re not old and can still go and do but the desire has been crushed, and a sort of fear to go out has set in. Not sure of what and fear isn’t the right word, perhaps hesitancy or dread and like I am no longer a part of it. Just not comfortable with it at all. All this from someone who was very social with tons of events and interactions and leadership obligations before. Sheesh! I guess life is a journey, ever-evolving and changing!

Love your blog! The misspellings are crazy. It says a lot about people in this country. Kind of sad.
