Bands 'N Beans is a great local event that combines 2 of my favorite things; great live music from numerous local bands and a chili cook off!

You may have noticed that I have mentioned Goodies For Gold a few times this summer. 

This past Saturday I had a chance to attend and spend some time with my friends the Dawes family and experience for myself what a cool thing it is that this family is doing to raise money and awareness for childhood cancer

All the proceeds from their lemonade stand are being donated to Relay For Life. Do you have a spare $1 and a minute to stop by and help them reach their goal of $500 by end of summer? You'll meet some great people and leave feeling GREAT!

Mary Longley Beside cooking being my middle name, most people call me Mary. My cooking experience started out of necessity, and with lots of successes and not so successful gourmet delights, I learned to be a little creative with some foods and found things that stay consistently on my list. Spending time in the kitchen is therapy for me and entertaining to share the successes. I look forward to sharing some of my creativity with everyone.
