2014: A year in Review

Happy New Year to you all! 2014 was a pretty great year filled with lots of travel, weddings, beautiful sights, and fond memories. I look forward to 2015 and while some may view new years resolutions as trite, I enjoy the tradition of reflecting and goal setting. Here are a

Watermelon and Microgreens Salad

This weekend Chet and I bought probably the best watermelon I’ve had all summer maybe even in the past few summers. Watermelon is my favorite summertime food. There is nothing better to me than sitting on my porch slurping down some juicy, sweet watermelon to take the edge of the

2014 4th of July

Balsamic Steak & Veggie Roll ups on the Grill

Grilled Pineapple with Pistachios and Honey

Meyer Lemon Bars
