I love looking at bedrooms.  Everyone I see always looks so put together...I'm afraid mine is a far cry from these but I sure can dream.  Each of these bedrooms are a beautiful in their own right.

A Spring Poem

Happy First Day of Spring! After a milder than normal winter it is still nice to welcome our spring season with open arms. Who doesn't love the fresh smell of cut grass, new buds on the trees, the arrival of our feathered friends and those first bulbs pushing up through the ground. It is my favorite time of the year and even though it is here for only a short time, it is a welcomed time!  So, if your weather permits, "spring" open those door and windows and breath in the fresh scent spring! AHHHH....

"♬♪ Spring is busting ♩♫♭ out all over"

For winter's rains and ruins are over,
And all the season of snows and sins;
The days dividing lover and lover,
The light that loses, the night that wins;
And time remembered is grief forgotten,
And frosts are slain and flowers begotton,
And in green underwood and cover
Blossom by blossom the spring begins.

Verse ~ by Ann-Marie Imbornoni via ~ Poetry for Spring

Homemade Marinara Sauce via ~ Dom DeLuise

Happy Sunday to everyone!  I thought I would share a great and easy recipe for Marinara sauce with an added bonus of Italian Sausage.  Not your most fat free recipe (maybe without the Italian Sausage) but delicious and very filling.

Do you remember him now?

I purchased Dom Deluise's Eat This Too cookbook at least 10 years ago or better.  I am wondering if some of you even remember who he is.  A comedian, who starred with Carol Burnett, Bob Newhart and a very young John Davidson just to name a few.  Anyway his cookbook has so many wonderful Italian dishes and desserts too.

I thought you might like to try his homemade Marinara Sauce but with a twist...I added 1 1/2 pounds of Italian Sausage (1/2 pound hot and spicy and 1 pound mild)


4~ Tablespoons Oil Oil
5~ Garlic Cloves, minced
1~ small onion, chopped
8~ fresh basil leaves, chopped
2~ tablespoons chopped parsley
1~ 6-oz can tomato paste
2~ 28-oz cans tomatoes (I used crushed)
1/2~ teaspoon oregano
      pepper to taste
Onion and garlic

Sauteing olive oil, onion, garlic
Browning Sausage
End results!!
Pour olive oil in a large saucepan, and saute garlic and onion until translucent.  Add basil, parsley, tomato paste, tomatoes and oregano.  Simmer for 20 minutes, then add pepper to taste.  Serve on your choice of pasta or any dish needing marinara sauce-chicken, fish, veal, beef, vegetables, lasagne.

Serves 4-6

***I browned and drained the 1-1/2 pounds of Italian sausage and mixed it into the marinara sauce.  I like to let my sauces simmer all day but even if you choose
cook it for 20 minutes it is delicious!  I hope you will try this is my go to recipe if I want just a quick marinara sauce without meat.

Bon Appetite!
