Let the Marination Begin

I'm in love and I don't care who knows it! I've fallen head over heals for marinades! I've tried marinades in the past, picked up a few bottles of this and that at the grocery store then they would sit in my refrigerator for months until finally going bad and being thrown away. Another dollar wasted. Well, not this time! Last night I made my own marinade following a recipe given to me by a friend. It's very simple and oh my goodness was it delicious! I loved the recipe so much I just have to…

Classic Roast Chicken with Herb Sauce

I had been so looking forward to making my roasted chicken on Friday but a devastating stomach bug had struck the Deininger household leaving my daughter and I completely unable to eat for 2 days straight!  Luckily, my darling hubby only got a very mild (if that) case of it the same day as my daughter and has shown no signs of it since then.  My baby got the worst of it and wasn't able to stomach anything, liquids included, for almost 3 days.  I, on the other hand, was…

Pot Roast Gone Awry

Doesn't look half bad in the picture, but like I said in my pasta post, looks can be deceiving!  After last night's fiasco, I have to say I had much better luck with the pasta then I did with the pot roast!  Who would have thought?  Yes, the potatos were nice and tender and the carrots were beautifully cooked.  I even… Continue

Do You Put Your Makeup On In Public?

Earlier this week, I was waiting to pick up my son from preschool and in addition to my two year old, I had In the car with me my brother-in-law. Apparently, it was quite entertaining for him to see me putt my makeup on while we waited in the parking lot of the school. He said something like "Man, you will just put your makeup on anywhere, huh?" My immediate thought was "Uhh, yeah...why not?" Then I starting thinking…

Domestic Diva in the Making

When it comes to my work, I'm always on my "A" game, but what I consider my "wifely" duties... let's just say this pictures is a pretty accurate description of how I feel. When I'm at work I have complete control of everything. My files are always neatly placed, my desk has order to it and I'm on top of every aspect of my work. My home life, that's a whole other ball park. For some reason, the moment I walk through that door all order and organization skills diminishes. I…
