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.

I have fabulous sisters. They have helped me through an incredible amount of crap. I am sure they will all have a spotlight on this blog eventually, but for now I would like to tell you about my sister Lissa. She is an amazing, beautiful woman. She has been by my side through all of my son's surgeries and hospitalizations.Read More
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!
Serve over salami, atop a square of toasted Focaccia bread.
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
