Food, Real Life, Travel

EVERYONE keeps asking me what I’ve done every day, and for the first two days in Cape Town, I felt like a “bad traveler” because frankly, when I got here after a redeye, twelve hours in Cairo, another redye, a mad dash to my connection, and another 2 hour flight, I was so exhausted that […]

However, last Thursday, my friend Monica changed my life by offering to share an order of scallop sashimi with me and I wanted to take a few minutes to share the food adventure story!

Slow Cooker Meat & Veggie Lasagna

This past week I went for my second attempt at lasagna in the slow cooker, and I have to say, this time was even better than the first! I posted a quick photo on instagram of my reheated portion from lunch today, and a few people asked for the recipe, so I thought it would […]
