Do you every get that desire for a delicious, ooey, gooey pizza?  I sure do!

There’s not much that comes close to a weekday dinner splurge of picking up that phone and calling in for a pie or two.

Whether it be a plain Margherita or piled high with all the fixings, sometimes you just need a slice.

Cookies, anyone?

Ah! The joys of baking…or should we say the madness of it!

Coming from a family of bakers and cooks, this blogger definitely caught that gene much later in life.  Only recently have the stove fires stopped, the microwave explosions come to a halt and the wonderful cloud of flour settled.   There is much do respect for those of whom baking and cooking come naturally.  To be able to eyeball that perfect amount of this, and throw in that exact dash of that… now, thats skill!

Here are some helpful tips for the kitchen, coming from experience….

1. I fell in love with different size glass mixing bowls – measure everything out ahead of time.  This will help control any disasters caused by the flimsy plastic “spice-shaker-controller-thing-that-always-manages-to-come-off-when-you-obviously-dont-need-THAT-much-cinnamon-in-your-mix-thing”.

2. Read the recipes ahead of time, and all the way through.  There is nothing worse than getting overly ambitious just to find out that the mix of sorts was supposed to take a nap in the fridge for five hours

3. Don’t take it too seriously – so what if your cake was “supposed” to look a certain way!  It’ll taste better now anyways! And those cookies are underbaked? Oh well! It’s not like you weren’t already eating the raw dough…yes, we all know you were!

Happy Baking!

Lending a Helping Hand

We recently had a wonderful opportunity to visit with some of the residents of Ocean City, NJ who’s homes and neighborhoods were wrecked by Superstorm Sandy.  We all know that there was and still is no shortage of media surrounding this devastation, however, seeing it for yourself first hand changes the whole perspective.    It not only changes the way we see the wake of destruction, but we also see the positive energy coming from all of the world, and from an incredible range of people.   While we were in Ocean City, we saw countless doctors, administrators, and teachers.  We saw families, friends and strangers.  We saw them all coming together to help those in need to rebuild, and reenergize the community.

It was a refreshing sight to see that people, humanity, can work together and achieve great things.

To those families who were affected by Sandy, please know that there are many people willing and able to lend a hand.  You are not alone.

Meet Blowie, our resident giant fish.  Don’t be intimidated by his size – he’s a big mush at heart.

Fish can be very intelligent – swimming next to Nemo and Dori, Blowie knows when lunch time is just by seeing his favorite blue feeding cup.

At the studio, our saltwater fish provide countless hours of entertainment for all our guests.

So come on by, sit on the couch, and relax!
