If you have been reading my blog for awhile, you have “met” my friends, Marla and Jeff. We get together for cooking experiments (aka M²T³ Events), apple picking, and visiting Chicagoland restaurants.

Maybe I’m late to the game on this, but I’ve just learned how to easily clean my sterling silver jewelry. The best part is this does not include a polishing cloth or harsh chemicals! And it works beautifully. I just had to share the method!« Continue »

Whew! The weekend is jam-packed!
