I think it’s fairly safe to say I’m no food blogger. In fact, that photo above? It’s all I have for this post and why? Because dinner and Daylight Saving make strange bedfellows without studio lighting. So on this one, you’ll have to close your eyes and imagine beautifully shot food. Deal? Earlier this week I made two things: a turkey … Read More

First things first: I am no baker. Sure, you are looking at the photo above thinking, “WHAT? I thought you always said you didn’t front? This looks like you’re fronting!” It’s true. I don’t front. What you see is mostly what you get but every time I post photos of my freshly made sugar cookies on Instagram or Facebook, people go … Read More

Last weekend I made a dish I hadn’t made for several years. In fact, I can’t remember the last time I put this on a dinner plate. But as of the most recent making, all I can think is: what was I thinking by not making this more often? It’s pretty much a home run every single time. The dish is grilled … Read More

I’m no foodie, but… hot dish holla!

Cathy ZielskeCZ Life24 Comments

In many parts of the country, you serve casseroles. In Minnesota, we serve hot dish. Many times, hot dish isn’t exactly the healthiest of foods. Lots of canned soups. Lots of crunchy potato chip toppings. Cup after cup of cheese. Not that I have anything against cheese. In my quest to eat healthier, I recently picked up the Nutritional Weight … Read More

I’m no foodie, but…this salad rocks pretty hard

Cathy ZielskeCZ Life23 Comments

You should know something about me: I don’t come from Salad People. Growing up, we had iceberg lettuce, maybe a few tomato slices, occasionally a cucumber slice or two that I avoided at all costs, and lots of Thousand Island dressing. Oh, and croutons. Lots and lots of health-negating croutons. But I married into a family of Salad People. For … Read More

It’s happens more than I care to admit. It’s Sunday afternoon and in-between laundry, getting something together for dinner and possible relaxing for a little bit, I realize I don’t have anything ready to post on my blog for the coming week. Cue the march up to my office to sit down, stare at my computer and think, “Now what?” I have … Read More

Loving these silly flash cards Dan gave me for Valentine’s Day. He’s such a romantic. Detoxing from the sugar coma that came from eating numerous sugar cookies. Honestly? I’ve been avoiding sugar since January. Last weekend, it was a bit, how does one say, overkill? Working on the Spring issue of Scrapbook & Cards Today and feeling that magazine production … Read More

Cathy ZielskeProject Life48 Comments

OBSERVATIONS: Last week, I played catch-up for three weeks worth of photos and stories, and I did something that made it so much easier to organize my photos and honestly, I can’t believe I wasn’t doing this before and yes, when this run-on sentence is finished and I take a breath, I’m going to tell you this remarkably simple thing … Read More

Project Life Weeks 39, 40 & 41 + a Project Life dilemma

Cathy ZielskeProject Life, Scrapbooking86 Comments

I’ve fallen off the Project Life sharing pace for the past few weeks. Truth be told, I have fallen off the actual making of the pages pace as well. My approach has been fairly consistent for the past few years: I pick a day and I make the pages. If it’s a habit it gets done, but as soon as … Read More
