the salad bar: parmesan chicken + arugula

I love arugula. And I love to enjoy it paired with a super-easy lemon vinaigrette. There's something so perfect about the peppery flavor of the greens combined with the tartness of the fresh lemon juice. ...more

a tunic for every trend

It's summertime - also affectionately known as: that time of year when we should all be allowed to live in our bikinis. Either bikinis, or other fabulously chic pieces on top of our bikinis. You know - for all of those times when you decide it's time to grab a late lunch of freshly grilled seafood and fruity white sangria at your favorite beachside café.

It's really just a roast chicken - but it acquired the nickname when a few women reported that after making it for their boyfriends, they were soon asked to be married. Sound strange? I believe it. The way to a man's heart, after all, is through his stomach....more
