Five Things Friday Part 4

Good morning and Happy Friday! The weather this morning is less than ideal with cloudy skies and rain, but I’m hopeful that it will clear up so we can enjoy the weekend. We have a few things on the agenda this weekend, so I’m more than ready to be done with work and start having […]

Swiss Oatmeal Recipe

I first fell in love with Swiss oatmeal when I had it the CornerBakery cafe. While I do love me some regular oatmeal from time to time, in the summer months I tend to gravitate towards meals that are cold, refreshing and ‘light.’ This oatmeal is healthy, delicious and won’t make you sweat more than you […]

Easy Fish Recipe

It’s hard to find decent fish when you live in a land locked city like Chicago. Lucky for us, our Whole Foods has a great selection of seafood, so every now and then my husband and I splurge on a really great piece of fish. A couple weekends ago we decided to make these steamed fish […]

Five Things Friday Part 3 –

The sun is shining, the air is warm, and it’s finally Friday! I’m ready for another jam-packed weekend as soon as the work day is over. The weekend plans include dinner with Jeff at the LuckyMonk and a movie tonight, my friend Lisa’s bachelorette party on Saturday , and spending some time with  my new little […]

Happy Monday and Milwaukee Adventures

Good morning! I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend and is  feeling rejuvenated and happy to start a new week. On the way into work today “Happy” by Pharell came on the radio and I couldn’t help but keep a smile on my face. That song gets me every time! My weekend went by fast, but […]

Five Things Friday Part 2

This week sure was a killer! I thought Friday would never get here! I have some fun plans this weekend including a fancy dinner with my husband, bridesmaid dress shopping and adventure day in Milwaukee with some of my best girlfriends, and  brunch.  I’m really hoping that the weather cooperates for us because lately it’s […]

Easy Minestrone Soup

As I said earlier last week, I’ve been on a HUGE soup kick.  On Sunday I made a huge batch of minestrone soup so I could have lunch throughout the week. Now, normally I’m not a big fan of leftovers in general; however, soup is my JAM and I could eat it everyday. Unless of […]

Happy St. Padddy’s Day and Irish Soda Bread recipe

Whether you were relaxing at home or enjoying a green beer at a pub, I hope you had a great weekend. Unfortunately, I was still getting over  a nasty cold so I wasn’t able to partake in any St. Paddy’s day festivities,  but I still made the most of it.  On Saturday we celebrated my […]

Five Things Friday Part 1

Happy Friday everyone! The weekend couldn’t get here soon enough! Between the bipolar Chicago weather and my husband and I sharing colds, it’s been a not so fun week! This Friday is extra special though because it is my husbands 31st birthday! He’s never really been into celebrating birthdays, but I love it! Presents, cards, […]

You Gotta Start Somewhere

I’ve finally created my blog.  As soon as I hit “publish”, readers will flock to luxuriate in my thoughtful content and carefully drafted expositions about my ideas, my life, and my interests.  No one knows how they ever survived without TheresesPieces.com and the blogging world will never be the same again. Now, obviously the reality […]
