Watermelon Salad with Sweet and Spicy Vinaigrette 1

Growing up, our summertime meals consisted mostly of fresh veggies.

Sweet grilled corn on the cob; sliced red tomatoes with my mom’s sweet creamy white dressing; zucchini sautéed with garlic, olive oil, and salt; steamed green beans with butter; bowls of leafy greens. It was bliss, all of it, and it’s no wonder that to this day my sister and I both prefer veggies over meat or junk food. (Thank you, Mom!)

Creamy Dijon Potato Salad with Herbes de Provence

Creamy Dijon Potato Salad with Herbes de Provence 1

If you’re looking for a new twist on a classic favorite side dish, Creamy Dijon Potato Salad with Herbes de Provence is the answer! If you follow me on Instagram, you know that when Mike and I were in Paris there was no holds barred on things like bread and cheese (come on, it’s Paris). We tried to make up for it by walking seven to ten miles a day (and that wasn’t even our sole means of transportation; we typically took the Metro three or four times a day too! What can I say? Paris is big and there’s a lot to do). And […]...

Mango Lassi Poppy Seed Muffins

Mango Lassi Poppy Seed Muffins 1

One day a while ago, Mike came home with a box of mangos. He was so excited because he found them up at a local Indian market for me because I had asked him for Indian (Alphonso) mangos. I asked him where the mangos were from and he proudly exclaimed “The Indian market!” I checked the produce stickers and had to laugh when I saw that they were from Mexico. He still gets the best husband in the world award for that though....

I’m a planner. (I may have mentioned that here before or you may have guessed. Or you may know from personal experience, and if that’s the case and I drove you nuts with my 1001 lists all I can say is I’m sorry. Truly. But remember, like Monica’s label maker, sometimes organization comes in handy. ;) ) Anyway....

Raspberry-Rose White Tea Gelatin

Raspberry-Rose White Tea Gelatin

Until my early 20’s, rose and lavender are two flavors that I was only familiar with in regards to soap…I never dreamt of eating them. And then one summer when I was taking a class on international mediation and arbitration in Europe for law school, I happened on the prettiest little sachet of Herbs de Provence in the south of France....

Red Lentil Bolognese

Lentil Bolognese

This dish is a little nostalgic for me, but not in the way you’d expect. Other than being a darn tasty meal, it has no personal significance aside from the fact that it’s the last recipe I have that hasn’t been shared on my blog yet that I made and photographed while Mike and I were still living in Kuwait. (We left there last summer, so that shows you how long I’ve had this recipe in my queue!)...
