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.

I’ve had canned San Marzano tomatoes and I know those will greatly alter the flavor of … Read more...

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.

After eating ham, cheese, and bread, every day on our honeymoon we craved vegetables. Just a tiny carrot, a leaf of kale, a slice of a beet – really, anything without carbs involved would have been totally acceptable.

Busy mornings call for quick, easy, and healthy sustenance. Am I right, or am I right?

With this being the final weekend before Lauren & Chris’s big day, and a ton of crafting, errands, and last details to get in order, there will be little time left for cooking.
