Israeli Vegetable Salad

This salad is one that I have grown up eating. It started my love for vegetables young because I don’t think we ever had a meal without a variation of this salad. It is so simple and easy that I was hesitant to put it on the blog but I noticed that every time I … Continue reading

Taste of Texas… Migas!

As I mentioned before, my favorite city in Texas is Austin. Good Food=Good place to visit!

I needed to learn … Continue reading

Dreaming of Summer…Watermelon-Tomato Feta Salad

 A couple of weeks ago, we met our friends in Lubbock for another themed dinner (dinner club). The theme was “Mediterranean-influenced”.

After noticing some baby watermelons at the supermarket … Continue reading
