Nice Buns

Written by
They get us every time. We always have more hotdog buns than hotdogs. GRRRR! We know what the deal is-- buy more hotdogs! But, if you don't want to buy more hotdogs just to perpetuate the never-ending cycle of more buns than dogs, you can use those buns for something else tasty. A couple of ideas include: Homemade Croutons (a personal favorite) French Toast Sticks (say no more!) Easy Tiramisu (inventive) I hate when food goes to waste!

The 4th of July should have the subtitle: Feast of July. Whew! Talk about some good eats! I had a hankerin' for a dish that I hadn't made in a while, so I decided to make it for the family cookout: Corn Casserole. A side dish so delish, it could almost be considered dessert.

So Grand

Written by
I've never been to the Grand Canyon. Def on the bucket list. But did you know there's a mini Grand Canyon in Georgia?   Georgia's Little Grand Canyon is considered one of the state's 7 natural wonders, even though we have man to thank for the unique geological formations. It seems poor farming practices in the 1800s caused erosion of the Coastal Plain, which formed gullies as deep as 150 feet and exposed different colored soil. Now, it's a wonder and a must-see. Who says mistakes are always bad?

Since we're in revenge mode in the best of ways, this might be a trip worth taking. Amtrak's Coast Starlight has been deemed "one of America's most beautiful train rides" since the 40s. That's impressive! It's a 35-plus hour trip that from Seattle to L.A., starting at $97.    Get more deets HERE.

Hot Stuff!

Written by
We've hit that glorious part of summer where we sweat from places we didn't know we could. Thank goodness for AC! If you don't have the cool stuff, here's a coupld of ways to cool down on these short-lived hot days. 1. Freeze your smoothies or grab a frozen drink. Try not to grab two many frozen margs since alcohol is dehydrating. 2. Wet your sheets down before you go to bed. It's what the Egyptians did! Damp sheets keep you cool. Add a fan pointed towards you and the damp sheet? That's an equation for a cool down. Sleep…

With so many people appreciating and enjoying the outdoors more, there are more things that we need to avoid. Two kinds of invasive poisonous plants have decided to make Northeast Ohio home-- and they're dangerous.  Poison Hemlock and Wild Parsnip.  Poison Hemlock is deadly if ingested. Wild Parsnip causes the skin to blister. Sigh... At least they hang out together, so if you see one the other is right there.  Click HERE to see what these two plant bastards look like so you can avoid them
