Baked Falafel with Tahini Garlic Sauce

Progress on the house is somewhat delayed. Due to the non stop rains Tampa Bay has been having all week they have been unable to seal our newly refinished terrazzo floors. I had hopes of heading over to IKEA this weekend to order our kitchen, but with the floors possibly not being finished until Monday and leaving on Tuesday for work, that may be pushed to later in the week. Lucky for you I … [Read more...]

But we had to get it done and we successfully did. Now I start … [Read more...]

I have become such a salad snob that I will no longer eat store bought dressing. Now I make a simple vinaigrette every time I have a salad, which is at least one a day. The addition of avocado instantly makes any salad tastier and creamier. I … [Read more...]

Watermelon and Feta Salad with Herb Vinaigrette

Watermelon and Feta, I've been seeing the combination everywhere, but it wasn't until last Thursday that I finally experienced it.  It was love at first bite and simply had to recreate the salad at home. The watermelon and feta was served with toasted pine nuts over a bed of arugula. Seriously could this salad get any better? Finished with a herb vinaigrette I could have eaten bowl and bowls … [Read more...]
