Hello friends! Memorial Day is this weekend and so is the Wedding!
Here is a NO bake, red, white and blueberry Greek yogurt pie I made for a gathering last week. This Greek yogurt pie is filled with luscious layers of low-fat plain Greek yogurt (as the cream), and loaded with fresh berries inside and on top. It's one of our Best pies! A 5-minute Greek Yogurt pie that is good for you, even as a dessert!

Watermelon Drink


Watermelon juice is the most refreshing, thirst quenching drink you can make all summer long. It is a fruit juice that is not only delicious, but also very nutritious with many health benefits.

When juicing watermelon as opposed to eating it, you are breaking down the solids in advance for quicker absorption. Therefore, reaping all the benefits it naturally provides.

Charleston Annual Garden Tour Part II

 Charleston is a city with a story, and seeing beyond doorways and through garden gates allows one to travel back in time and appreciate the architecture, history, gardens and culture of this beautiful timeless city. This is the second part of my photos taken and along the way I took a few extra photos of some of the accents that makes this city so charming.

Orecchietti with Sausages and Spinach

We all love simplicity, so making dinner as quick and easy as possible is always one of our goals.  This is an example of one of those dishes that comes together in less than 30 minutes!  A bonus feature is that it contains carbs, protein and veggies - all in one delicious dish!  My favorite!

Orecchietti pasta (in Italian, it means "little ears") is tossed in a skillet with crumbled sausages, fresh cherry tomatoes, white wine, garlic and fresh spinach. Topped with grated pecorino cheese to give this dish a burst more flavor!
