Recipe: Basil Salt

Last week, my garden was overrun with basil.  I didn’t know what to do, as the space was competing with tomatoes, and the tomatoes were quickly winning.  It’s a massacre out there for all the other veggies.

Recipe:Stuffed Squash Blossoms

This summer, I finally decided to tackle something that I have been either too busy, or too afraid to tackle: My very own garden.  I know it sounds silly, but I have dreamed of growing my own food for some time now.  I have to say, it has certainly been a learning experience.  What to…

Finally, it’s summer, and its so hot outside that you get that sticky feeling all over your body. Not going to lie, I love the heat. The Russian and I will be hitting the beach very soon (and for the rest of the summer).  Before the heat wave hit, however, I found this awesome recipe…
