  Well, the trees have started to bloom. The air is softening and the birds are chirping a note louder. Spring has opened up it's palm and is feeding us sweet air and sunshine. Somehow, this year spring truly feels like a new chapter, more so than I've ever fel...

Sometimes my afternoon consists of nothing much other than preparing a meal, and perhaps snapping a photo of it. Sounds simple, yes, but the pickings of the perfect ingredients, the tastings and the recording of the recipe is more than that. I think, what else can I ad...

I've been loving these quick mixes of grain, protein and vegetables, served with a quick dressing.  This can last in the refrigerator 3 or 4 days so it's great to have ready on hand to take to work or serve up as a quick lunch/dinner. It's also packed full of nutrients...

 I hope everyone's had a nice Labor Day weekend. We went camping, unplugged and enjoyed a little outdoor time. Coming home to an endless pile of camping laundry is not the time I want to start a big meal, so a simple pasta salad like this one is perfect. Frying up the...

This salad, with its bright and citrusy flavors, simply screams summer to me. It's got a slight crunch from the celery and sweetness from the mango and I can tell you without lying, it's one of the best things I've ever eaten. I knew I had to share it with you because...

This almost felt too simple of a recipe to share, but my husband convinced me. Everyone roasts their vegetables a little differently, adding different spices and herbs. This is my most commonly used spice blend for simple roasted vegetables but you can use whatever spi...
