What do you love to make during the Summer for lunch or dinner? When it is very warm and hot outside, you don’t want to turn on the oven and get the house very warm. I either try to make something that requires only cooking on the stove or no heating at all.

One thing that is perfect on a warm, hot day is a salad. What I love about salads are there are many different possibilities for the type of salad you can make. I love making salads with spinach, romaine lettuce, or carrots. And the toppings on the salads can be anything you want. You can load your salad up with lots or vegetables or even fruit. Whatever your heart desires. As far as meat, deli meat or chicken tastes great. If I’m making a side salad with a meal, I skip the meat.

My girls, Katie and Sophia, aren’t school age yet, but Katie will be in about couple years. So I’m preparing myself for what school will be like for her. I’ve done some research on schools today by what I’ve heard from others and read online and in magazines.

This post is inspired by an article I read in the Parents Magazine called, “Skills of Tomorrow.”

Do you love cupcakes? What is your favorite flavor? One of my favorite is lemon cupcakes.

I don’t bake that often; I probably bake few times a year. Mostly on special occasions and holidays. When I do bake, I love making my lemon cupcakes from my Better Homes and Gardens cookbook. This is the recipe I used to make my lemon raspberry cupcakes.

I baked these lemon cupcakes one year for my husband and I’s birthdays. When I made the frosting, I added little extra lemon juice and lemon peel for extra flavor. I added sliced lemons for my topping on my cupcakes. The lemon slices could be candied if wanted.

Here is my recipe for lemon cupcakes.

If you have read my It’s All in the Lace Details post, then you would know that I love wearing lace. So when I found this lace top at JC Penney, I loved it. The top was on sale for a great price (plus 15% off), so I bought it.

You know what’s crazy? If you looked at my lace tops in my closet, you would see that they are either black or white. No colored tops. I don’t know why. I guess it just happened that way.
