Garden Greens with Yellow Tomatoes and Peaches

I told you something good would come out of those lovely peaches and tomatoes. I think we’ve been ‘stuck’ in winter mode since, well, winter. In fact, last week, we had a friend in town, and decided to cook some of the heaviest, hottest meals in our recipe book. Go figure. After a few days...

The Missing Foodies?

With our posting frequency lately you’d assume we were on some new-fangled extreme diet or something. Well, we’re not. Unless it was a crazy cupcake-only diet or something.
