An all time favorite, the Caesar Salad. Probably the first time you ordered a salad for a meal, it was a Caesar. In all its simplicity, the lettuce, a rich dressing, cheese and croutons, tossed together in a surprisingly filling bowl of creamy and crisp goodness. And let’s face it, you don’t order a this if you are counting calories, unless you have the dressing on the side, but what’s the fun in that? If I’m ordering a Caesar salad, I want every inch of it drenched in dressing. because the dressing is really the star of this salad. Read more

The Art of Simple Food by Alice Waters is one of my favorite cookbooks.

A bit stumped on what to do, we needed something quick and easy since we are both slammed at work, and Susan was heading out to NYC on Wednesday. So instead of facing off on an actual recipe, it was decided we would use a seasonal vegetable and prepare however we wanted. Read more
From time to time, I need something simple. Simple to make, simple flavors, and simple to clean up. Usually this means a bowl of cereal or granola instead of a salad or sandwich for lunch, or heating up an Amy’s Gluten Free Mac n Cheese for dinner. But simple doesn’t have to be tossed in the microwave or come from a box. It can be as easy as turning on the oven, putting water in a pot, and waiting. Read more
One of the best things about being with family for the holidays is your mom making you a home cooked meal.
