Nectarine and Mango Infused Water

By Vicky Nardone

So I know water is one of the healthiest things you can drink but I've just never been a huge fan of just plain water.  That doesn't mean that I don't drink it plain but I say if you can dress it up a little than why not?

Wedding Shower Scrapbook Page #3

By Vicky Nardone

This is the third and final page of my three page bridal shower scrapbook layout.  I drew my inspiration for this page from the invitation.  My aunts threw me my bridal shower and my Aunt Carole picked out these invitations, which I just love.  So pretty and colorful.

Wedding Shower Scrapbook Page - Finally Done!

By Vicky Nardone

A while ago, I had posted my wedding shower scrapbook pages here and here.  I was never very happy with the second page which looked like this, because I didn't think it matched the first page very well and I also didn't think the colors worked well within it.

Baby Polar Bears at the Buffalo Zoo

By Vicky Nardone

This past Saturday my mom and I went to visit the Buffalo zoo with a group of friends from our local theater group.  One of the guys in the group is a docen at the zoo which means he gives tours and answers questions and things of that nature so he gave us a guided tour around the zoo.

Tomato Avocado Mozzarella Salad

By Vicky Nardone

I hope everyone had a good fourth of July!  Matt and I went to the beach with some friends and did a barbeque after it finally stopped raining.  Then at night we went to our favorite spot on the river with some other friends and watched fireworks after getting ice cream of course!

Before we headed out to the beach I made us a light lunch of some tomato mozzarella avocado salad and some homemade fresh squeezed lemonade.   It's too bad that avocado isn't blue because this would have made a great patriotic salad.  It kind of looks more like a Christmas salad with the colors that it is.

Decadent Chocolate Mousse

By Vicky Nardone

If you want a sweet, creamy heaven-on-earth type of dessert this is your winner.  I always associate this recipe with New Year's Eve because my mom used to make it for dessert on that night a lot when I was young.

The 48 Hour Film Festival 2013

By Vicky Nardone

Two weekends ago my house was yet again, for the fourth time, turned into a movie set.  Beyond that, from Friday night to Sunday night it was just a scene of overall craziness.  You see, for the second year in a row my husband organized a team for the 48 hour film project.  What is the 48 hour film project you ask?  Good question.
