I know it's just "teasing weather" here in Northern Ohio.  It's kind of like the "teaser rates" some lenders offer to get you in the door.  They make you want it and believe you can have it and then rip the rug right out from under you. I don't care.  It's 50 degrees today and I'm feeling like Sp...
I'm working with an older, single least she is older than me.  She was widowed almost one year ago and made the decision that she was ready to move on.  She lives in a house that has become much too large for her and her needs.  She is looking to downsize and is considering a small clu...
Quinoa.  Might as well be Foie Gras around here.  Nobody knows what I'm talking about. My husband wants to know where I've ever heard of such a thing.  I do have three sons that live in Charlotte, Cincinnati and Portland...and that's where I first heard about it.  They eat it and like it and it s...
Anyone ever heard of NACA?  It stands for Neighborhood Assistance Program of America. I have some clients relocating to the Sandusky, OH area this summer.  I gave them a list of lenders to talk to in our area that I trust.  They called me last week from Buffalo telling me that they were going to ...
Now, I've been eating homemade Chicken Soup most of my life.  That's a lot of soup.  I took careful notes from my grandmother and then my mother and was completely satisfied that their Chicken Soup recipes were the absolute best. Enter husband, experimenting in the kitchen.  I walked in from work...

One of my favorite feel good places is Tranquility Salon and Spa.  They are offering some gre...
I've been told that this is a keeper by everyone who has tried it.  It fits the bill on a cold snowy day and tastes even better when reheated. CABBAGE GOULASH   1 lb. bulk pork sausage              2 Tbs. vinegar 1 lb. ground beef                        1 Tbsp. chili powder 1 lg. onion, chopped  ...
  It's still me I don't don the rabbit fur hat for just any occasion.  My husband has even broken out the Carhart coveralls.   The weatherman says we're having an historic weather event. I want to be prepared, just in case. The drive is cleared---all 600 feet of it and the deck is shoveled clean....
There are so many things to share with a seller at the all important Listing Appointment.  But, do you remember the study that says the brain can only recall about 10% of what it tries to absorb?  Problematic at best.   Home Stager, Kristine Ginsberg presents an excellent list of Do's and Don'ts ...
Let me start by telling you that I love to cook.  DO NOT confuse cooking with baking.  Baking, as far as I'm concerned, is a whole different animal.   But marinades and vegetables and meats and stews and casseroles.....Now, that's what I'm talkin' about. When I was little, I lived in the apartmen...
