Tomato & Olive Salad {with smoked paprika vinaigrette}

by Lauren


So, this salad (or salsa? Or dip?) has been a huge hit around these parts lately. I’ve now taken it to a dinner party as a salad and camping as a salsa/dip and in both cases, the bowl came home empty.

Sometimes it’s freshly baked fruit scones, maybe scrambled eggs and Ezekiel wheat toast, or possibly whole grain pancakes–OR–it’s a cheese-y, egg-y, bacon-y, type … Read more...

Old Town’s Rockin’ Baja Coastal Cantina: New Menu Tasting!

by Chrissy


Rockin’ Baja Coastal Cantina has a brand new menu brewing up, and we were so lucky to have had the opportunity to a private tasting before it is unveiled!

These treats were a … Read more...
