Aloo Out

My hubby, Sam, said to me yesterday afternoon, “get dressed, we’re going somewhere ( I was in my pajamas, don’t judge me).” We ended up at the Indian grocery store. He had very sweetly decided he was going to make me dinner, a new dish we had never tried. Yay! We had a few momentsContinue reading “Aloo Out”

Tomatoe Recipe #2

Ok, to be fair, this isn’t a recipe. It’s not complicated nor does it use a lot of ingredients. It’s basically just a Caprese salad. Instead of Mozzarella I used Burrata, which is almost like Mozzarella but creamier on the inside. I then drizzled some Balsamic Reduction on top and called it a day. WhenContinue reading “Tomatoe Recipe #2”

No oil splashes or burnt food on the stovetop that you just cleaned! I used a quarter ofContinue reading “Easy Bake Eggs”

This girl!! See those beautiful leaves we’ve got? Yeah, that’s fresh from the garden spinach and arugula. We’ve paired it with broccoli and quiche, but the real star here is the greens! I tossed a little balsamic vinaigrette on top and it was delicious. Bright, tasty and packed with vitamins. I felt like Popeye! I’mContinue reading “Who is excited for side salad?”
