Hi friends… WE ARE  BACK! 

Over the past couple of months and weeks, Lauren and I have each had huge job transitions and busy schedules. Then came our two week Italian Vacation!

Caramelized Onion, Prosciutto & Gorgonzola Omelet

by Chrissy

Omelets are pretty cool. Sometimes I try to trick myself into thinking that an egg scramble is just as good, but who would I be fooling.

Tofu & Asparagus Quinoa Salad

by Chrissy


Ingredient Challenge Monday: Tofu


Many people forget what a great substitute tofu is for meat. Sometimes it’s just nice to venture out and use something other than chicken, beef or pork in stir fry or salads or side-dishes. There are many different types of tofu at the store, so it can be somewhat intimidating, especially if you aren’t sure what the difference is between firm or soft, water-packed or vacuum-packed. I still have trouble in deciding what consistency will … Read more...
