Homecoming Dinner w/Grandma Selma’s Brisket

Last night I hosted a pre-Homecoming Dance for my son. He is a Senior and my other son is a Freshman in college.  I am almost an empty nester. I clipped the recipe for Grandma Selma's Brisket from Food and Wine a while ago…it is a crowd pleaser…at least these 17 year olds liked it! Dessert was apple pie from Straub's with their perfect Cinnamon Ice Cream!





Jilly’s Cupcakes Has Expanded!

University City's Jilly's Cupcakes located on Delmar at McKnight has just expanded their space. More seating for more cupcake eaters! I still want to try their brunch, though have not yet since their was a line out the door. Now with more space….I will be there!



Ladue Mid-century Available….marketed as a tear-down

A cool Mid-century (MCM) house in Ladue is on the market. The listings are for the lot or for a new house, so the house is in danger of being torn down. The lot is $448,000 and is 1.8 acres. The pictures are bad….from the estate sale a while back, though click HERE for a previous post about this house.  Contact me at 314-607-5555 or [email protected] for more information.

Update:  The builder says that this house is coming down in the next couple of weeks. They will not sell it to someone who does not want to build. 🙁
