Halloween is creeping closer and my house has zero decorations up. Zero. I have asked my husband several times to bring down the huge boxes of decorations we have acquired since having the kids, but we just haven’t had the time.

Asian Fusion Slow-Cooker Pulled Pork Tacos

The kids this week are enjoying their Spring Break. Of course, I use the term “enjoying” very loosely. It certainly isn’t as exciting as their last break back in February, where the hubby and I threw caution (and our wallets) into the wind and whisked the family to the Big Island of Hawaii. I warned […]

Saturday mornings in our house means there’s time to relax and really savor our breakfast. Some people like to indulge in pancakes and waffles. We like to indulge with eggs.

Avocado and Crab Salad with Seville Oranges

Today’s post almost didn’t happen. I have spent the week with Middle Child home sick, fighting off the cruddy stomach virus. He’s a beautiful boy who likes to inform me of every ache and pain and discomfort he is feeling at every moment of the day. He is particular about his food (it has to […]

Easy Summer Meals: Roast Chicken with Butter & Herbs

I feel like we have barely dipped our toes into summer over here. I’m enjoying the slow mornings and the kids are enjoying the fun escapes we have had so far. I admit that with this leisurely pace, I have slowed down working in the kitchen. It might be burnout from the last month push […]

The California Grilled Cheese with Avocado

Cheese. I’ve been in love with cheese all my life. When I was a wee tot, living in Iran, every morning I ate my lavash (flat bread), feta and jam. This was all the cheese I knew. Things changed when we came to the U.S. and moved to Texas. I became one of many elementary […]

Marital Bliss Found in an Avocado

The following is a typical scenario at our house, and did actually occur just last week: Thursday night, hubby asks me after dinner: “What are you making for breakfast when my buddy M comes over to make that pomegranate wine?” My response, “Huh?

Strolling Through the Avocado Groves

Last month I was invited by the California Avocado Commission to tour an avocado ranch and packing house. Considering my obsession with avocados, this was a no-brainer!
