I was in Miami for work most of last week/weekend, so I wasn’t able to post until now. Although the trip was extremely busy, we were able to relax a bit on Friday night and watch both of our clients perform at Ultra Music Festival–it was pretty incredible!

My roommate, Megan, and I decided that we’d be content eating this quinoa salad for every meal, for the rest of our lives. Okay, maybe that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but it’s that delicious. Super easy to make, too!

This orzo salad just screams summer, right? I brought the dish to my friend’s birthday party this past weekend at Malibu Wines, and it was a hit.

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day! I spent the day/evening in Malibu with my friends Ellen and Danielle. We shopped and ate an early dinner at Malibu Seafood. Our spread ranged from fresh fish tacos to deep-fried halibut pieces to clam strips to New England clam chowder. Everything was delicious–I can’t wait to go back.

These homemade veggie burgers were also fantastic…and much healthier! Since I’m always making turkey or beef burgers, these were a nice change. Though somewhat time-consuming, the burgers were delectable, with a wonderful variety of flavors and textures.

Hey there, Ellen.
