Hello Hello!

Sorry to all you food lovers who have been diligently checking our blog for an update. Not to worry! Change is coming your way. There will be more posts and frequently. Maybe we won't just post a recipe, but more on different ingredients. Would love to hear more on what you would like to read about! 

With spring quickly approaching, I'm sure you will be looking for quicker and lighter recipes that maybe will help trim the waist line and more importantly not keep much of our time in the kitchen but more active outside. Time to smell the roses?

Surely enough a quick recipe for you...yes it a salad recipe...It's quick, it's refreshing and it is DELICIEUX!
