Nothing like fresh green vegetables to boost your health and happiness –this salad is a great choice any time of year!
Arugula. Cucumbers. Olive Oil. Lemon. Salt. What could be easier?! I like to make this super healthy, yet simple salad for festive meals such as Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur Breakfast or Passover Seder. I also will serve it on a Friday night when we’re having an easy, casual dinner firing up some burgers on the backyard grill.

This Orange Arugula Salad paired with Mustard Lime Chicken makes a delightful ... read more →

Now, we are in peach heaven, flush with fruit. Accordingly, I have been rifling through recipes to find a variety of ways to put our massive ... read more →

The boys were buzzed this afternoon –their hair that is. Now the little baldies will be nice and cool in the warm weather.
It hasn’t been all that hot though lately. In fact, we’ve had many cloudy afternoons and so far this summer haven’t made it to the pool yet. I have a feeling that once the summer solstice passes we’ll get a good dose of hot weather and go for late afternoon swims at the community pool before ... read more →
