Love and Olive Oil - Eat to Live. Cook to Love.

Where are we?

Well, now we are in New York. Though it took us nearly 3 days to get here (we spent St. Patti’s Day in Chicago… now that’s a sight to see). Yes, it’s spring vacation, and we left sunny, 80Ëš California for cold and snowy New York. So if you’re wondering why we’re not eating anything,...

Sautéed Bass with Mint Pesto and Spiced Carrots

So tonight we cooked the fancy fish dish. We didn’t use bass, but frozen dover sole.

I promise!) Grecian Turkey Sliders Recipe originally from RecipeZaar, miniaturized by us. :) Makes 4 servings. Ingredients 1 lb ground turkey 1 cup crumbled...
