Gonna eat that: homemade chicken marsala

  Just a quick note to say DAMN, that was a good dinner last night! This recipe earned a spot of honor in the blue binder where I keep only tried-and-true favorites. (Note to self: I should tell you about that binder sometime.) This one is quick, delicious, and has just a few ingredients. I will make this again as a weeknight dinner for sure, but you could totally serve it to company as well.…

Time for some healthy eating

Dating is fattening!  Mike and I have been going out for nice dinners and watching movies on the couch all winter.  Time to get back to healthier eating and more outdoor fun.  Today’s lunch was homemade tomato salad.  Fresh chunks of Roma tomatoes, Kalamata olives, thinly sliced celery, and black beans, topped with sunflower seeds and my favorite balsamic vinegar. (It’s Alessi’s 20-year-old balsamic; sweet and tangy.)  Good lunch.
