Two very special people, Ashley and Stephen Sargent,  came into my life a few years ago and I’m so glad they did. They bring a ray of sunshine to any work day and are such a joy to talk to and be around. Ashley and Stephen represent what true love looks like.  Having a Wedding Planning business is the perfect way for them to share their passion for celebrating love.  I mean, I’m reading their bio’s, one of the things they love is eating breakfast at Christo’s Cafe. As ya’ll know, I do occasionally blog about my life, so I thought I’d share this part with you.

They are the husband and wife duo. Wedding Planners at A Beautiful Theme.  Ashley,  the lead and creative director. Her husband Stephen, the amazing floral designer, along with their dynamic team who deliver the best Wedding Event services in the heart of Central Florida.  Let me show you a quick peek at some of their work.

Spathiphyllum

While sitting in my rocking chair, I had a thought. I decided to challenge myself to use each one of my herbs to make really easy and delicious dishes.

Rosemary

My rosemary plant is out back in a different garden. Rosemary. is a much hardier herb and grows to be quite large. Placing in the ground only made sense.

Sweet Basil (2)SageOreganoEnglish LavenderMintChives

Starting soon, I will be profiling one of each of these herbs that I will incorporated into a main or side dish. Fresh herbs bring so much flavor and to any recipe. They give the dish a gourmet touch. Well, I better get started on my first dish! Happy Cooking!

I was strolling through, the Whole Foods market, when this display of a whole wheel of Parmigiano-Reggiano caught my eye. Oh yeah, the sale sign too! Right behind this display is a wall of cheeses from around the world, I mean that literally! There are cheeses from all over the world, and I’m planning on trying, a few of them, in the near future.

The most amazing moment was watching the process of opening of an eighty pound Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese wheel.

It turns out, this is a pretty big undertaking, and definitely takes some time to complete. Once that wheel is cracked open, it’s pretty awesome! I bought myself a couple of big wedges. When I returned home from the store, I placed one in the freezer and one in the frig. I think it’s going to be a pasta night!

It’s was just time I treated myself to something I’ve been wanting.  I mean, I think I deserve a new toy once and a while. When I saw this, I knew this baby was coming home with me. It browns, it steams, it braises, and finally it slow cooks. This 7 quart slow cooker is going to make life so much easier. Hope you’ll keep stopping by to see what I’m going to be cooking up in my new amazing slow cooker!
