Publix Aprons: What I Made

Life at Publix has been pretty busy lately. Our summer schedule is out and packed with tons of really awesome classes. There were a few recipes from previous classes that I wanted to try, and I was able to get to a few over the past couple of weeks. The Onion Focaccia was one that […]

Isagenix Giveaway

Remember back in February when I judged the Flavors of Boca event? Aside from lots of good food from local restaurants, there were also a couple of vendors showcasing their products, one of whom I had the pleasure of having a great conversation with.

First Recipe of 2012: Cranberry-Applesauce Bars

A free afternoon can only mean one thing: more time to make use of the kitchen. I haven’t baked since my Eight Days of Hanukkah posts and I was starting to get antsy. Pretty soon I may not have much time to cook or bake often so I figure I’d better get in as much […]
