THE ROOST AT FOUR SEASONS

THE ROOST AT FOUR SEASONS RESTAURANT.  I bet you’ve passed it a time or two and either didn’t notice it OR you noticed all the cars parked in front of it along US 27. THE ROOST (for short) is located at 5298 Hwy 27, in Frostproof.  If you’re heading towards Lake Wales it’s located on…

Delicious Pumpkin Cookies

Fall is right around the corner!  While I love being here in Tanglewood and sunny Florida, I have to admit I am going to miss fall in Ohio and watching the colors change.  I’ll also admit I don’t like what follows fall up north so that’s why I am here. A few things about these…

Anyone in the GYM??

It makes my heart happy to see so many people out and about during the day, walking, riding their bikes, exercising in the pool.  But while the lower half our bodies are getting a good workout, we can’t afford to ignore the upper half of our bodies.  Yes, we need strong legs to keep us…

Their ambiance reflects a hip Spanish/Mexican village. I was impressed with their diligence for cleanliness.  All staff wore masks and they…

And Then There is Iowa…

Some of you may have noticed that there has been a slight delay in reporting on Iowa. (Okay, so maybe 2 and a half months is a tad more than “slight”….) Well, I needed to wait until the final results from the Presidential Caucus could be included. We all know that Iowa is the first…

Homemade Pimento Cheese Spread

Lately with these sweltering days I wanted something not only a bit lighter for lunch, but something different. I have loved and enjoyed pimento cheese spread out of a jar or a plastic tub from the grocery for years, BUT I have never made it fresh myself! I will put it on crackers, sliced cucumbers,…
