This light and fresh dish is a quick weeknight dinner, but elegant enough to feel like you’re dining at a great restaurant. The past few weeks have been a whirlwind for me. Between work, personal commitments, birthday celebrations and vacations I haven’t been able to prioritize meal planning as I usually do. Continue reading

Wow, it has been too long friends! I’m sorry for my long absence but I have been navigating life differently since I had RNY Gastric Bypass in January.

A quick note, if you just want the recipe then feel free to scroll on down for it. If you’d like to hear more about this journey, keep reading.

I am so excited to share this recipe with you! The Cake Slice Bakers started baking from our new book, World Class Cakes, this month and if this recipe is any indication I am going to love it!
