Open-Face Tomato Sandwich {with creamy feta spread}

by Lauren

I’m still thinking about Italian tomatoes. I could eat them all day, every day…and I did for 2 weeks.

The tomatoes in Italy are so flavorful and sweet that even the seemingly unripe, green-ish tomatoes are better than any tomato I’ve had in America. Their tomatoes taste how a tomato should taste yet that flavor is still beyond your imagination unless you’ve had one.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!! I hope you have your corned beef slow cooking away preparing itself for tonight’s feast.

Another classic for this holiday is that fantastic Irish Soda Bread. My mother-in-law handed me half of a loaf of her infamous version of the recipe as we left her house this weekend. She loads hers up with not only raisins but caraway seeds!

If you have a surplus of Irish Soda Bread, I have a solution. Here’s a way to … Read more...

I’m not sure yet if they are more on the chocolate chip cookie gone healthy side, or more of the slice of banana bread gone unhealthy side.

Burrata BLT {and Mom’s Day}

by Lauren

picnic

This is late…I realize Mother’s Day has passed.

I still felt compelled to share about my mom and the activities from mama’s day though.

My mom is one of the most selfless people I know. She’d drop everything for me if I needed her to (and has). And not just me, she’d drop everything to help almost anyone.

She’s a fantastic listener and always up for giving advice. If you need someone to talk at, she’s your gal.

My mom … Read more...
