west coast to the east coast

My beautiful travel partner, Susan

Well, last week got away from me!  I was in LA for a few days, then headed out to North Carolina and am on my way back to Phoenix at the end of this week.  Life is crazy, as usual!  But we're having fun and making the most of it!  Stay tuned for more about LA (and a little giveaway!), what's new in the shop, a mother's day event, and more!

making chili for the crowds


When our Chicago cousins come to town, everyone is so excited to see them!  I always know we will have a full house of visitors and those anxious to hang out with them.  No one wants to cook, plus I'm never sure exactly how many people will show up, not to mention what all the different little picky-eaters will and won't eat, so I always make a big pot of the world's easiest chili.  This is the best go-to meal when you want it done fast, you need to feed a lot of people, and you want to make everyone happy.  

world's easiest chili

- ground meat of your choice (sirloin, turkey, etc.)
- pork chops, cut into cubes
- ranch style beans (the secret ingredient)
- chili powder, salt and pepper to taste 
pour everything in a pot and cook.  see how easy that is.
then, make a buffet of toppings for everyone to choose from.
examples: cheese, corn, sour cream, radishes, zucchini, avocado, cilantro...
the list could go on and on.
the kids can have it plain with cheese, the dads can spice it up with tabasco, 
and everyone else can make it just the way they like :) 
happy crowd, happy hostess.

the secret ingredient :)
something here doesn't belong...
a sure sign of lots of kids running around :)

cleo and clementine


I have to say, I think we are really lucky in Phoenix to have so many unique local shops and restaurants, and I love being able to support them. One of my favorites that my daughter Christine introduced me to a while back is the lovely Cleo and Clementine.  Attention all brides or anyone in need of a unique, one-of-a-kind dress!  This is a place you need to know about!  These dresses will make you drool and the shop itself is beyond darling.  My personal highlight was seeing her eight year old daughter making doll clothes in the back!  I wanted to sit down with her and join in.  7th Avenue is full of so many gems these days and this is definitely one you need to visit if you haven't yet.  Grab a coffee, hit up some vintage shops and stop in to Cleo and Clementine.  There, I just planned a lovely weekday morning for you :)  You're welcome.
