Summer recipes with

I’ve been gone for the last few weeks and if you’re wondering what I was up to, I was meandering my way down to Florida. The first stop we made was in Richmond, Virginia, visiting my dear friend Marie.  Every time I stay with Marie she always whips up the most amazing meals. (and NO, she’s not French…although I did study with her in Paris). At the start of this summer I decided I would try to get my kids more interested in cooking and gardening so we planted seeds and have been cultivating a garden.  Now that things are growing, I need to come up with some recipes and that’s where I ALWAYS fail.  I love to eat but I get bored with the same old recipes and can’t seem to think up anything new.  Marie told me she gets 90% of her recipes from  She sent me the link and this morning I checked it out…and guess what….I’m HUNGRY…and excited to get cooking!  Skinny Taste is the brain child of Gina Homolka, a mother of two from New York.  Marie’s not the only one loving Skinny Taste, apparently the site gets 2.5 million visitors a month. Where have I been?
