Friday Faves

2 mins read

Hello hello and happy Friday!

Grilling and BBQ season is in full swing at our house. Man, I love summer food. Last weekend we made my fave baby back ribs, my crunchy ramen salad (I didn’t have Mandarin oranges so I added chopped Fuji apple for the sweetness), and tossed some tomatoes and cucumber with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and glorious burrata cheese. Simple and so satisfying.

I watched the CNN documentary on Julia Child and I am even more enamored with her than before. What an amazing woman!

Just wow.
