Broccoli in Creamy Lemon Dressing

I always thought I can only eat cooked broccoli and I was always baffled by how some people can eat it raw, until I tried Souplantation's broccoli salad.  Ever since then, I have always come back for this salad.

Mango, Apple & Cucumber Salsa

Hot summer days are upon us and to combat the heat, I've been making this cold and refreshing mango, apple and cucumber salsa to have on hand. I've eaten this with salmon, salads, enjoyed it with corn chips and as a taco topping over grilled meats. It just adds a nice zing and crunch to every bite.

Mignon Chocolates + Tote Bag

Last Friday, I met up with my high school classmate whom I have not seen since we graduated 28 years ago.  OK y'all, stop doing the math....LOL!

My First Pillow

As somebody who is so new to sewing, I thought I'd start with pillows.  After all, they are just straight stitches all around the four sides...so I thought.  LOL!

Teeny Weeny Yellow Polka Dot

Two weeks ago, Veggie Girl made a bib for our girlfriend's one year old daughter, little J-Girl.  So I thought maybe I should make something for her too.

Tour of Los Angeles' Fabric District

Earlier this week, our sewing teacher Regina kindly offered to take us on a tour of the fabric district in Los Angeles. GG and I jumped at the opportunity of course so bright and early on Tuesday we set out on our little excursion.

Quick & Easy Nachos

Ok, I needed to make something quick for tonight's dinner, if you can call it that.  Tonight was Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Finals, L.A. Kings vs. New Jersey Devils.  The game started at 5:00 p.m. so I needed to make something easy to eat in front of the TV.  If you watched the game, then you know there will be a Game 5 on Saturday.....hmmmm....now I need to think of what to make for that game.

Mangoes with Thai Sticky Rice

Wow, it's amazing how we're already in June and half the year has already flown by. The school year is winding down for my kids and would you believe they'll be out on summer break in just a couple of weeks? Now that their end of the year exams are out of the way, their schedule at school is much more laid back with lots of parties and celebrations going on.

Outdoor Pillows

Didn't I tell I've been sewing?  I have been obsessed with pillows lately....zippered pillows that is.  There's nothing like a clean pillow for me, so it has to be zippered and washable.  In the short time since I learned how to sew, I am proud of my zippers that I now call myself "zipper queen." LOL!

Since it's summer, I thought of making outdoor pillows that you can throw anywhere.  Whether it's your run of the mill plastic chaise or a kasbah-like cabana, throw pillows are a fine way to dress up your space. -GG-
