It’s April

Wow time flies. I can hardly imagine that we’re already in April. This month my hubby and I celebrate our 25 year anniversary.

Ready Steady Go!

I love watching Jamie Oliver cook. It’s funny how he uses his whole body while he is prepping food. When I was still teaching cooking classes to teenagers, my first lesson was about preparing you self for cooking. Basic things such as washing your hands, take off jewelry, yes, also all your 20 rings :), […]

Lunch Salads
