Cucumber Raita 4

Have you seen this floating around social media? Made me laugh out loud as I think it often. Especially during school drop off when I have to bundle 2 kids, park the car and walk Noah, who decides to move like a sloth, to the door. Not cool weather. Not cool. These cucumbers so light, crisp

Ok, so I have to apologize for being so MIA lately around here. I don’t really have a big excuse for it, just a lot of little things. Joel was in NYC last week, Hannah is teething and will only allow me to hold her (every waking minute) and Noah is in the nonstop questions

Cuban Grilled Salmon

We are still dreaming of our Florida vacation and that delicious Cuban food we devoured so I wanted to make something reminiscent of our trip. This Cuban-Style Salmon (chicken for me) was just what we needed. The flavors were bright due to the lemon {or lime} and cilantro. Plus, it was super easy to throw

Strawberry Lemon Sorbet

If you are looking for a light, refreshing alternative to ice cream this month I have the recipe for you. When I say light, I don’t necessarily mean healthy, it does have 2 cups of sugar (or more)…it’s just not heavy and custardy like a traditional ice cream. I love strawberry lemonade so when I
