Mediterranean Pasta with Grilled Swordfish, Lemons and Gremolata

Have I told you about my little Pia and her total and complete obsession of the last 6 months? (Besides growing her hair as long as possible, Taylor Swift and headbands of course.) It’s Fencing. Like with swords. Is that funny to anyone else? I am still entertained by the fact that she is so […]

Curried Chickpea Toast

Happy Toasty Tuesday!! I am actually quite enjoying my new Tuesdays and my toasty exploits. I hope you are still into my kind-of recipes and short commentary. We are keeping it casual on Tuesdays.

Chicken Corn Avocado and Cucumber Salad with Garlic Honey Vinaigrette

I’m so hot and sweaty and rather tired of letting the mosquitos buffet gorge on my legs at night and burning my skin on the blistering car seats, that I tempted to start spitting some blasphemy along the lines of ….I’m ready for fall. Now mind you, I will be eating my words soon enough […]

And honestly, this is the least like a recipe of any of the toast ideas I will be sharing with you, but it just doesn’t make it nay less good. Pia is allergic to peanut […]
