The Ultimate Tomato-Basil Soup

Since it’s summer and tomatoes are in their prime, I thought I would share this famous recipe with you.┬áThe sad news is, it is as bad for you as we all think (although some of us still think in the back of our heads ‘tomatoes are good for you’). The good news, it’s delicious. In […]

Organic, or not?

I know the whole organic battle is hard for me to understand sometimes.

Just look at the blueberries, arugula, sweet onions, heirloom tomatoes, basil, zucchini, squash and cucumbers. Yum! Oh, I am so excited to make the pasta that […]

You may have noticed I added another page. At Jason’s urging, I have a created the Recipes page so that you can see all of the recipes on the site in one consolidated place. I am excited to see that page grow, so if you have suggestions on recipes you think I should try, please […]
