A Birthday + Ingredient Challenge

by Lauren

I’ve quite simply had the best weekend ever. A night out for pizza and beer with good friends, a breakfast with my family, a romantic getaway with my man, and finally, cheese fondue, apple crisp and a movie with my best bud. I LOVE birthdays!

Crispy Eggplant Spinach Parmesan

by cmocush

Eggplant. I repeat, Eggplant. Do not be scared of it! It is so delicious when prepared the right way. I promise.

Here, have a look for yourself…

Since Lauren and I prepared some Mediterranean-style, grilled eggplant sandwiches for work yesterday, we still had a large portion of the eggplant hanging out in the fridge. On occasion, the remaining eggplant half might just end up pushed to the back only to be found during an intense cleaning session, thus resulting in … Read more...

Super Simple French Toast

by cmocush

It was such a fine summer winter weekend. I got to spend some quality time with my man at the beach in Orange County. What? The beach? Yep. The beach. It was high 70’s and beautiful this weekend. No big deal.
