A Personal Loss and Some Recipes and Gift Ideas for Spring


In this post, I’ll share a personal loss along with some Spring recipes and gift ideas for moms, graduates, and newlyweds.

On Losing My Best Buddy Cam

If you’ve followed me any length of time, you know my golden doodle Cam. He was my sidekick and shadow for 6 beautiful years. On May 20th, I held him one last time and told him goodbye. My heart is shattered into a million pieces, but I know it will eventually heal. Many have asked what happened to Cam, so I share the story in this blog post which includes a podcast episode for those who prefer to listen.

Cam & me
My best buddy for 6 years.

Spring recipes for Mother’s Day 

If you are looking for recipes to make for a Mother’s Day brunch or lunch, I have several that are easy and make ahead.  To me, quiche, salad, and a light dessert make a perfect Spring meal. Link to my favorites below.

Gift ideas for moms, graduates, and newlyweds.

I link below to some gift ideas for moms and graduates. 

  • Breville Nespresso Creatista. This is the ultimate luxury gift for a graduation, wedding, or any special occasion.  I use mine almost daily. Currently on sale here at William’s-Sonoma.
  • Henkel’s Knife Set. This set is FAB. Self-sharpening block, carbon steel knives, and a great price.
  • Breville Smart Oven with Air Fryer. I use this more than my regular oven. It is a workhorse and beautiful on the countertop.
  • White serve wear. I have all of the pieces below and get asked for links frequently.  I share what the pieces look like in the video below and link to the products as well.
