Spiraled Parmesan Vegetables

A bit behind in my posts since I made this recipe for Mother’s day, oops!  Regardless, every holiday my family gets together and ends up having a carb fest, all those yummy comfort food dishes that are typical of American holidays.  Since the meals typically revolve around the meat and potatoes, I began my search … Continue reading

Scents are one of the many ways in which I lighten my mood and decrease my stress. Nothing beats coming home to a house with the sweet scent of fresh baked cookies, vanilla or citrus fruits that remind me of my last Caribbean voyage.

Thin (healthier) Crust Pizza

I love pizza! Who doesn’t, right? It seriously could be a staple in our household and my husband would have no problem eating it for all 3 meals a day.
