Summer peaches, boozy buttercream... what more does one need in a cupcake? You NEED these Peach Bourbon Cupcakes from Savory Simple!

I have always had a very difficult time with jet lag. It was a struggle for Jeff and I early in our relationship. We both love to travel and took several international trips together before getting married.

This Grilled Zucchini Salad with Feta and Sweet Croutons offers a perfect balance of flavors.

A few years ago I wrote a post called Salads 101: Everything You Need To Know, which discussed how to create a perfectly balanced salad based around our four main tastes: sweet, salty, bitter and sour. This salad has every one of these taste components and it’s awesome. [Read more...]
