the best things since sliced bread… hey wait a minute!

With the baking bug still quite heavy in my heart, I decided that I’d crank out another beautiful loaf of bread… this time the loaf was a half white flour and half wholemeal! The half and half idea was a suggestion from a friend who lives in the UK, and boy was it a fantastic one at that… the completed flavors were intense and so well rounded! Slightly nutty, this wonderful loaf paired beautifully when sliced and toasted with a creamy, triple crème and fig jam… it’s a miracle that there is any left for breakfast in the morning!

not your everyday ‘salad’…

Tonight was a great night! A visit from a wonderful friend who we haven’t seen in quite a while yielded a night of laughter, great food and drinks. Originally planned was a grilled meal, alongside an edamame and tomato salad. Unfortunately do to a long passing storm, grilling was pretty much out of the question however the salad not so much!! Simple to put together and beautiful for the eye to see… grape tomatoes, a red onion and shelled edamame. That’s it!!
Refreshing, light and full of flavor this salad could be a meal on its own!
