Green Bean & Tomato Salad with Lemon Dijon Vinaigrette

Green Bean & Tomato Salad with Lemon Dijon Vinaigrette |

I love salads that use minimal ingredients yet taste flavorful and delicious. That is exactly how I would describe this Green Bean & Tomato Salad with Lemon Dijon Vinaigrette. Before we get in to the salad I need to take a minute and complain. Last week Wordpress came up with an update which I installed. Ever since then my plugin that I use for sharing my recipes with you has not worked correctly. I have uninstalled and reinstalled it numerous times with no luck. I can honestly say … [Continue reading...]

This morning was the Boston Marathon. If you didn't already know it is the oldest continuously running marathon. It was first held in 1897 and had only 18 participants. Today it averages around 20,000 participants and nearly 500,000 spectators. This year was a particularly emotional year for the Boston Marathon after last year's bombings. Last year my sister ran the marathon and it was the longest and most tense time I have ever experienced waiting to get a call from her to say she was alright. … [Continue reading...]

Who’s ready for Easter? Surprisingly I am, but that could be because I’m not hosting a brunch or dinner this year. Normally this would be the day I would be doing all my grocery shopping and some of the prep for the big meal. However, this year I’m only in charge of bringing either scones […]

Easter is almost here! Do you have any childhood memories of Easter? One of my favorite memories is of our family going to church early Sunday morning and my sister and I getting all dressed up in our Easter dresses (my sister more reluctantly). I remember one year I even had an Easter hat that […]

Is it strange that I may or may not keep at least 8 frozen bananas in my freezer at a time. When I get below 4 bananas I start to panic and have to replenish my stash. I use frozen bananas for so many things. I actually just prefer to eat them that way….is that […]

Do you have any recipes that continuously make an appearance on the table for certain holidays? For me, this Berries and Feta Salad is one of them. This salad usually makes it’s debut at Easter or Mother’s Day since berries are in season at that time. Since Easter is just around the corner I thought […]

Berry Crisps for Two

Berry Crisps for Two |

I love spring! Not just because of the warmer weather and the leaves returning to the trees, but also because berries start coming back into season. I of course love apples and citrus, but after a while I get a little tired of them. A girl can only bake so much with citrus, but with […]

Strawberry Mango Salsa


Hi, my name is Danae and I’m a salsa addict. Yes it’s true, I have a real salsa problem. I put it on almost everything. Eggs, cottage cheese, salad, chicken, fish, mix it in with rice or pasta dishes, chips, and sometimes I just eat it by the spoonful. This Strawberry Mango Salsa was meant […]

Lemon and Lavender Meringue Cookies


Have you ever baked using flowers or floral extracts? I never had until I took a cooking class at Sur la Table last summer. In that class we made profiteroles and filled them with lavender whipped cream. They were divine! I was skeptical at first because I had recently had some macarons that were rose […]

I am a total dip, spread, and sauce loving girl! I had to be careful how I worded that, saying I’m a dip girl may not be the best choice of words. Anyways, I don’t know about you but I love the way dips, spreads, and sauces can enhance something as simple as a slice […]
