Summer Recipes

Food is at the center of our lives.

I am always thinking of what our next meal will be: breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, it’s pretty much the forefront of everyday planning. I have been cooking and eating at home more in the last few months and it’s exhausting getting creative in the kitchen EVERYDAY. There are some days I feel inspired, full of energy and time but mostly its me trying to figure out the fastest way to have a delicious, fresh meal. I think most of my women friends are in the same boat, which is apparent during lunch. Lunch time in our break room is a combination of smells, culture and conversation showcasing the importance of food in our lives. We like to see what each of us brings, the story on the dish, and often share recipes and bring some to share.

Food is so much more than just something to eat, it’s a way to connect and learn about each other. Here is a recipe from each of us that’s quick, delicious, and fresh from our hearts to yours.
