Caprese Scramble.

Ari whipped this breakfast up on a whim this past weekend.


Soooo deliciously fresh.
Thank goodness I married a man who can cook!

A little direction from the chef:

Saute halved cherry tomatoes in garlic and whole grain mustard in pan.
Whip eggs up with chopped basil.
Add to pan and scramble.
Serve on a bed of arugula and top with buffalo mozzarella.
We drizzled a little balsamic before eating.

Mmmm...Superb.

La La Lemonade.


A recent trip to Lemonade (YOU MUST GO) inspired me to whip up my own sugary beverage concoctions to give as hostess gifts at THIS mini mini-me bbq on Saturday. My flavors of choice? Strawberry Basil and Blueberry Cucumber Mint. I wish I had a recipe to share to but I was short on time and was furiously squeezing lemons, adding sugar, and pureeing those extra ingredients to add to each - using my own sampling skills to decide when they were just right. I suggest that if you're in the mood for a summer refreshment such as these, conduct a little science experiment in your very own kitchen. Trust your taste buds. They will show you the way. OR hit up Lemonade and take a pick from their many flavors. Couldn't hurt to grub on some lunch and dessert while you're there too. Da bomb.

Gretchen's Bruschetta.



Siri's Mama introduced this recipe to me years ago and I have been hooked ever since. So very delicious and SO very simple. Perfect in a oh-crap-I-have-no-clue-what-to-make/take moment.
You. Will. Love.

The Grocery List:

Baguette (I prefer sourdough)
1 lb. Roast Beef
Goat Cheese
Roasted Red Peppers
Fresh Basil

Layer these ingredients atop each piece of sliced bread.
Serve. And ENJOY!
