About Me

Phoenix, Arizona, United States
The most important thing in my life is my family. I love my dear husband and 4 wonderful children (ages 11 through 18). I am a stay-at-home mom (my dream job!). Some of my favorite things to do include cooking (and eating!), photography, reading, piano, flute, watching my favorite TV shows, swimming, traveling, and most recently...using the rip stick with my kids. I would love to attend culinary school someday & fit my love of photography in with that somehow. My dream vacation is Italy - something I was recently blessed to experience! I'd love to return and see more of that beautiful and DELICIOUS country! My days are usually full of running kids to and from activities - scouts, sports, music and church. Sometimes I have to remind myself to breathe, but I absolutely LOVE my crazy life and the people I am lucky enough to share it with!

sunrise smoothies (from Barefoot Contessa Back to Basics)

serves 2

This breakfast treat is an explosion of fruit flavor. If you want it even easier, use frozen strawberries and peaches. It's good for a special weekend breakfast but also delicious for an afternoon pick-me-up.

1 cup chopped strawberries (5 strawberries)
1 cup chopped seeded watermelon
1 cup chopped fresh peach
1 cup (1/2 pint) raspberry sorbet
1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
Watermelon spears, for garnish

Place the strawberries, watermelon, peach, sorbet, and orange juice in a blender and puree until smooth and creamy. Add more orange juice if you'd like it a little less thick. Serve immediately in glasses with watermelon spears.
