Easy to make & bake lasagna! No need to pre-boil the noodles! - NovaturientSoul.com

There is just something about a dish with carbs & cheese that make it such a comfort food. Lasagna is filling, delicious, & so comforting to eat. We love it, but we do not make it that often in our household because it can be quite a process to prepare.

We are not a rib fanatic household, but every now and then we like to indulge in their meaty goodness. And personally, I want them to be so tender & juicy that they just fall apart when you look at them. (Okay, a slight exaggeration)[Read more]

Daydreams & Goals: The Search for the Perfect Job - NovaturientSoul.com

My once-a-week posts have halted because I have hit a creative block that I cannot get around! So, here is what I have been up to lately… I’ve been daydreaming & thinking about my goals in life.
