Remembering Citrus High School

Good Morning, Darlings!

You know what warms my heart?  By now, I’m sure you know that it’s Eric and my crazy dogs. But my friends come right after that. And tantamount to that is getting to see old friends after a long absence. I always consider this a precious gift.  One of those precious gifts recently came in the form of seeing childhood friend, Maureen. Bestie John, Eric and I met up with Maureen at Park Tavern in Atlanta while she was visiting our city with Carly, the daughter of another of our classmates (honestly, where has the time gone?)

I picked Park Tavern for their view of Piedmont Park and the city. There really is no better view in town.

Super Bowl, Super Party

Friday, February 5th, 2010

Good Morning, Darlings!

I imagine many of you will be throwing parties this weekend for what is, for the most part, a national holiday – Super Bowl Sunday.

The commercials are the draw for me. But the game can be fun to watch, too. What’s the key thing for the day, though? Let’s say it together, shall we?  The FOOD, of course!

Your crew has already tried the wings, the take out pizza, the onion dip out of a container.  How about switching it up a bit this year? I am going to give you some recipes that will make you look like the star I know you are – and easy! Because no one wants to be stuck in the kitchen when the party is in the living room, right?

How about these beauties?

Super Bowls!

Golden Globes With The Gang

Thursday, January 21st, 2010

Good Morning, Darlings!

I’ve shared Sugar Coma with you and the macaron class on Sunday.  My thought was, heck, the house is clean – lets give a Golden Globes party for our besties after all the guests from  the macaron class go home. Made sense to me. And we had missed giving our New Year’s Day pajama party because we were both ill…so lets make it a Golden Globes Pajama Party! Whoo Whee!
