Fuzz made a contribution. And here’s another picture from one […]

Disney Dream

For Spring Break, we took our first-ever cruise on Disney’s new ship, The Disney Dream. I have so much to tell you, but I’m also looking forward to getting back in the kitchen so I’ll try to keep it brief.

This week I was invited to Hershey, PA to get to know the faces behind The Hotel Hershey, Hershey’s Cookies, and The Milton Hershey School.  While it’s nice to be home for the holidays, I’m already planning a second trip for our family. With friendly people, great service, a variety of hotels and loads of […]
