INSTRUCTIONS
  1. First, prepare the Pumpkin Ricotta Mixture: Fry the sage in butter until crisp. Remove to paper towel. Then combine all ingredients in a medium bowl. Set aside.
  2. Next, make the Béchamel Sauce aka White Sauce: Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add flour and whisk to cook the flour, about 2 minutes. Slowly add the milk and continue to stir. Bring to barely a boil then immediately turn down the heat. Cook, whisking until thickened for about 3 minutes. Remove from heat. Season with nutmeg, salt and pepper.
  3. Spread ½ cup of the White Sauce over the bottom of a greased 8-inch-square (2-quart) baking dish. Place 2 sheets of no-boil lasagna noodles atop the sauce in a single layer.
  4. Top lasagna noodles with a third of the ricotta mixture. Layer with a quarter of the mozzarella. Then top with a third of the remaining White Sauce. Top sauce with 2 more sheets of lasagna noodles to build the second and third layers the same way.
  5. For the top layer, place last 2 sheets of lasagna over the White Sauce. Top with remaining mozzarella.
  6. Bake at 375° F for 35 minutes, covered with foil. Uncover and bake an additional 15 minutes, until the lasagna is bubbling hot and the top is browning. Remove from the oven and let sit at least 10 minutes before cutting. Garnish with fried whole sage leaves.

I live gluten-free, I am a #Hashi (Hashimoto autoimmune disease) I was diagnosed in 2014 – I have been living gluten-free since then. I went from a size 16 to size 6 / 200 Lbs to 130Lbs – My overall physical and mental health taking a more positive turnaround is priceless. If you would like help to start living a gluten-free life, contact me via email (cchomeconcierge@gmail.com) and I will try to answer any questions you may have or I will find the answer.

Today I Salute The Warriors Left Behind

I am posting this VERY early draft of the pictures my Mom and I have collected from the Navy Housings we lived in. First, I Salute the Men & Women that stand on that wall for ALL of us – never asking why. I wanted to also salute the ones that are left behind – The Moms and Kids – we served, we did our part. Our Moms kept the house running smooth, food on the table, clean clothes on our backs, and great memories to carry us through the tough times. They were our Warriors . . . I Salute You

These pictures are from Dolphin Gardens – Navy Housing in Groton CT 1976 – 1982

What To Do With a Business Concierge

Concierge for Small Business

Businesses sometimes need extra support for specific projects or ongoing tasks without the need for hiring an additional employee. If you don’t want to take on the expense of a full or even part-time assistant, you can still get the help you need . . . just when you need it.

CCHC can serve as a business concierge to assist with:

  • Make phone calls
  • Arrange travel or other bookings
  • Packing / unpacking
  • Provide internet research
  • Complete to-do lists
  • Business clerical tasks (filing, clean up emails and calendars, etc.)
  • . . . And so much more

It’s a cost effective solution to a growing trend of outsourcing your business tasks. Business concierges are playing an important role in today’s business environment by providing cost-saving benefits to both the business and individual. The Business Concierge can perform many of the same services as office-based employees, but without the associated costs such as payroll tax, health insurance, workers compensation, sick and other leave, training, office space (we usually bring our own setup), phone, etc.

By providing a Business Concierge, companies are not only providing a valuable tool for employee satisfaction and retention, but are alleviating the time burden that some business tasks place on the company’s resource.

Something to think about – Offer Business Concierge service to your employees, you will give your staff:

  • Reduced stress levels knowing personal tasks are being handled professionally and confidentially
  • Fewer distractions from work related tasks
  • Increased focus on their work during working hours
  • More quality time to spend on their home and family life

Would you like to get more organized at the office? If you’d like to schedule a 30+ minute free consultation with me and learn how a Business Concierge can help you get organized or finish up some projects with dead lines. Call me (860)961.6824 or Email me: cchomeconcierge@gmail.com

How a Little Store in Tijuana Can Inspire Your Imagination

Where do you get your inspirations?

Never miss an opportunity to see inspiration in the most simple places of your world.

Who knew that a tiny little shack (store) in Tijuana 1977 would have a lasting effect on my inspiration of creating ladders for just about every room of your home or office.

Soon you will be able to purchase my “Simply Lean” ladders – Set of 3 Ladders (Tall, Medium, Short) on my blog.

Are you already getting some ideas?
