After countless posts complaining about the lack of spring, the weather channel informs me that we will have warm(er) weather this week, possibly even up to the 70’s. EEEK I’m so excited! To celebrate, I decided to make some gorgeous blood orange marmalade. Full disclosure, I’ve never made marmalade before, and I’ve been thinking about … Continue reading Blood Orange Marmalade

Whatever it is, today I decided to attempt yet another smoothie, BUT it needed … Continue reading Cucumber Mint Smoothie
I hope you all had a happy and relaxing Easter/Passover holiday! We did a lot of cooking and roaming around my parent’s house. Yesterday Zara and I tried our hand at Russian (or Italian depending on who you talk to) Easter Bread. I have actually never tried this bread before, but I always see it … Continue reading Russian Easter Bread
