Audrey Hepburn


Audrey Hepburn will always be remembered for her amazing style, her sassy personality and her smile. Her style is acceptable in today’s fashion because it’s classic. Fancy but not stuffy. Fitted but comfortable, it’s Audrey!


Autumn Goodness

autumn chopped salad

Goodness indeed! The end of summer doesn’t mean no more salad. This salad has a delicious combination of sweet, nutty and flavorful ingredients.

*6 to 8 cups chopped romaine lettuce
*2 medium pears, chopped
*1 cup dried cranberries
*1 cup chopped pecans
*8 slices thick-cut bacon, crisp-cooked and crumbled
*1 chopped semi-firm avocado
*4 to 6 oz. feta cheese, crumbled
*Poppy seed Salad Dressing
*Balsamic Vinaigrette (I like Newman’s Own Light Balsamic Vinaigrette)

*On a large platter, combine the lettuce, pears, cranberries, pecans, bacon and feta cheese. Drizzle generously with poppy seed dressing, followed by some of the balsamic vinaigrette. (I would estimate that I used about a cup of dressing: 70 percent poppy seed dressing and 30 percent balsamic vinaigrette) If you prefer your salad to have more dressing, feel free to experiment with the combination.

Life is good, eat more salad
