The Italians know what's up when it comes to combining ingredients. Every single Italian recipe I've ever eaten has been a delicious explosion in my mouth. Which is why I need to go to Italy pronto. Ha! This Italian Pasta Salad is no exception and I love that it is hearty, versatile, zesty and totally packed with flavor.Read More
My boys and I are spending quality time together at home today. It's a bittersweet one. My dad and stepmom have just left after almost a week together. We miss them and we miss the action-packed holiday season we just experienced.Read More
A few notes about today:
I love spending time in coffee shops and I love that I have smelled like coffee all day.
I finished editing photos from the last wedding I photographed, which is a great feeling.

Olive-y, gooey, fabulously delicious!
I was unfamiliar with the word "muffaletta" a mere five months ago. I was sitting at a table in Jason's Deli, probably munching on a spinach veggie wrap (my favorite!), when I spotted a photo of a scrumptious-looking sandwich. Layered in between the bread were olives, cheese and layers of sliced meat. Yum!
The next time I was there, I ordered one of those delicious sandwiches all for myself. Actually, I ordered a quarter of one because the whole sandwiches are enormous. It was olive-y and gooey and fabulous!
Since then, I have been extra aware of my newly-learned word, muffaletta. I saw a recipe for muffaletta dip as I flipped through a magazine a few weeks ago and knew that it had to be made soon. Like the sandwich, it was olive-y and gooey and fabulous!

My mother is a great cook. I have always raved about her food. She makes mouth-watering pork chops and potatoes and chicken and even her macaroni & cheese is beyond delicious. This veggie & salami croissant sandwich is my favorite thing that she makes.Read More
