Coconut & Chia Seed Granola

Coconut & Chia Seed Granola

Breakfast is by far my favorite meal of the day. You can get away with having sweet things like buttermilk pancakes and cinnamon rolls or something savory like eggs Benedict or corned beef hash. It satsifies all my cravings. Lately, I’ve had a hankering for granola and sadly I’ve been sort of too lazy to […]

Kids for Animals

Kids for Animals

The unconditional love one experiences from dogs instills joy, fun, silliness, and healing. Even the conditional love from cats can be a salve for the soul.

A Smorgasbord of Roses—at The Huntington & Descanso Rose Festival

A Smorgasbord of Roses—at The Huntington & Descanso Rose Festival

After we indulged in the scrumptious Afternoon Tea at The Huntington last week, we strolled around the rose garden. If roses are a perennial you enjoy, this year’s blooming is not to be missed. Just the various perfumes are remarkable—from intense licorice and floral to spicy, lemony and plum-like—let alone the colors, coloring, shapes and sizes. It’s a luscious […]
