Spinach & Feta Quinoa

Spinach & Feta Quinoa

For years I’ve been creating dishes when my fridge has veggies on the cusp of going bad… This is one of those such dishes.  I recently bought a giant container of organic spinach and two of organic arugula. I clearly have a weakness for sale […]

El Venadito Cheese

El Venadito Cheese

I was approached by Specialty Cheese Company and asked if I would like to taste test El Venadito (hispanic cheeses.) Ummm… Free cheese? Yes please! If you haven’t realized before, I love cheese. At any given time, we have no less than 3 types of […]

Healthy Eating Commences Now

I’ve set a goal. I know I’m never going to be back to my perfect size. Never gonna happen. But I’d like to get close to that size… or around the corner from it. Or just in the neighborhood. I’d like to lose 10 (really […]

Got Mozz?

Insalata Caprese is my husband’s most favorite salad. I purchase the best possible tomatoes when I make this salad, and if I can’t find good, vine ripened tomatoes, I won’t make the salad. My favorite (other than out of someone’s garden… of course) are Campari […]

Looks Like Greek To Me

Looks Like Greek To Me

Once a month or so, I like to do an uber-healthy vegetarian night. Last night we dined on delicious and low fat Mediterranean fare. Of course I could make it even healthier and omit the olive oil… but naaaa… why ruin a great thing??? Although […]
