Veggie Lasagna

Veggie Lasagna

We had a dinner party recently and I made this veggie lasagna.  I had every intention of taking photos and blogging it.  But then the wine got in the way.  By “got in the way”, I mean we drank too much and forgot to take […]

Salad + Pizza

It’s been a great week for us.  We spent 4 days in Montego Bay, Jamaica shooting a fabulous wedding and relaxing in a gorgeous resort.  Yeah, I know, it sucks to be us.  I really loved the laid back vibe of Montego Bay… just fruity […]

A Different Daring Baker
