  • Good Food Made Simple

    Dena April 2, 2014

    A few months ago, the folks over at Good Food Made Simple (GFMS) reached out and asked us to give their food a try. I am always skeptical about packaged/frozen food. In my experience convenience usually comes at a (nasty!) cost. However, when our sample…

  • Toasted Mozzarella Kale & Garlic Sandwich

    Dena March 31, 2014

    Over the weekend, I made this heavenly sandwich — the most delicious sandwich that I’ve ever had. I used grilled vegetables (onions and green bell peppers) but you can use anything as a filler — vegetables, meat, whatever you like. I’ll break the recipe into…
