Farro Slaw Salad with Blood Orange Vinaigrette

Farro Slaw Salad with Blood Orange Vinaigrette

I am always looking for great salad recipes that keep well enough to bring to work. There are a lot of factors that go into whether or not a salad can be made ahead of time and still taste great the next day. What makes […]

Fig Melon & Mozzarella Salad

When I started this blog, I was unsure how long I could go without repeating featured ingredients. Certainly one, probably two years, but could I make it three, four or five years? 21 months in so far and I am still going strong, but I […]

I feel like I cannot share a recipe without addressing the elephant in the room, but at the same time I am not one to share my political views all over the internet. But to say the least, I am sad and disheartened by the […]
