Arugula salad with roasted chick peas and avocado.

February 2, 2017

  Being that it’s the beginning of February, I figured I would make another salad for those of us still going strong with our New Year’s healthy eating goals. And if you’ve fallen off that wagon, no worries – that was me last year (and the year before that).  I do like to make my salads interesting though and that’s how I came up with this arugula salad with roasted chick peas and avocado. I was browsing Pinterest and saw…

Grilled Romaine Hearts with Pancetta, Pecorino and Pine Nuts

Happy New Year! Buon Anno everyone. It feels like forever ago that I posted on le blog, and looking back, it actually WAS forever ago (butternut squash gnocchi anyone?).

One of their editors, Rebecca Firth from Displaced Housewife was making this cake. It looked so good in the Insta video, so I went over…

How I proposed to my bridesmaids.

October 26, 2016

Once Ben proposed, it was time for me to propose right back…to my bridesmaids!  I knew that I wanted the moment to be a special one and that I wanted the whole bridal party to be together when I asked. Other than those two things, that’s all I knew.  So I got to brainstorming on Pinterest (where else?). By simply typing in “bridesmaids gifts” the search results were full of necklaces, gift boxes, custom wine bottle labels, you name it.…
