I am so lucky to have Chef Bill from Eat @ Bill's in Owensboro, Kentucky as a close family friend. Over 4th of July weekend, he taught me to make focaccia. Like many people, I was a little scared to make bread & thought it was a huge task. Not the case! This recipe is easy & actually fun to make! Feel free to mix it up, add cheese or other herbs you like. Enjoy!
I love this pizza because it takes less than 30 minutes & after you feel like you ate a delicious pie without the grease of a normal pizza. Topped with fresh summer vegetables this is the perfect meal for lunch or dinner.
Well, it's been a really long time. I guess that's what happens when you get a full time job & become an adult. All I want to do at home is have a glass of wine & binge eat cheese & bread. However, summer is coming up pretty quick & those food groups aren't super supportive of hangin out on the beach in a bikini. So better start cooking up some more beach friendly options, hence this salmon & couscous dish. Not only is it good for you it is packed with simple flavor & pairs well with you favorite chardonnay. I suggest Ramey 2013 Chardonnay from the Sonoma Coast. Enjoy...
Because my roommate & I are adults now, we have friends over for evening dinner parties. Nothing is more perfect for a last minute dinner soiree than a casserole. Easy to make in a short amount of time & just fancy enough...

Never heard of forbidden rice? Shhh... it's delicious rich flavor won't be a secret for much longer. Forbidden rice is packed with antioxidants & fiber.

I don't know about you, but my late night craving is almost always for something cheesy... My baked homemade mac & cheese is creamy & delicious with herbs from the ever satisfying Boursin cheese baking into gooey heaven. Enjoy this little dish with good company (or keep it all to yourself).
