Where there is love there is life.

~ Mahatma Ghandi

Looking through my latest recipes, it seems as though it’s been ages since I published or shared anything that wasn’t salad, as let’s face it, that is obviously where my head is most days of the year!

Here we are again, home safe and sound! We were super fortunate to have been off to Hawaii for just over a week, and now we are back. Of course, it never ceases to amaze me the speed at which life goes by, even with the pace that seemed to putter on while we were away. Time. It’s a really funny (and wonderfully beautiful) thing.

Now and then it’s good to pause in our pursuit of happiness and just be happy.
