Soups On! Guinness Onion Soup

Pittsburgh fall weather today = 80 degrees and blue skies. I opened the windows and started cooking for soup season. I’m stuffing my freezer full of different soups so I can pull-out a bowl when I need some comfort from the cold.

As many know, I like beer, and I cook with beer quite […]

San Francisco

This past July, I visited San Francisco – my first time. When we arrived, it was too early to check-in to our hotel, so we did a little walk around the neighborhood.

Not only do […]

We arrived around 6 p.m. Vegas time, had dinner, unpacked and changed into […]

Norwegian Pearl

Back in March I took my very first cruise on the Norwegian Pearl. We traveled to Belize, Cozumel, Honduras and NCLs private island in the Caribbean called Great Stirrup Cay. The Pearl is ‘Freestyle’ cruising – you can create your own vacation; you can get on and off the ship when it suits you (of […]
