What’s the recipe for a relaxing summer night? Good company, laughter and a very cold drink. On the beach, of course. And if there is a little fire pit in the mix, even better. (Can you tell that I am super impatient for summer vacation to begin? I am and I keep reminding myself that […]

Pasta has been my faithful friend for many a last-minute-dinner preparation. It’s comfort food. It’s easy food. It’s something the whole family loves. Until recently, we stuck to the semolina variety. Whole wheat pasta has never been something we loved. In fact, just the thought conjures up mouth memories of pasta that tasted a lot […]

Reading is one of my favorite activities when I want to relax (don’t we all need a little relaxation sometimes?). There’s nothing like curling up with a good book and a delicious snack to really make a weekend afternoon special. Oh, and my favorite fuzzy green blanket. It’s so comfy.
