Colorful, light, and healthy, this dish is both stunning, a crowd pleaser, and will leave you filling full. We finished the meal off with a jerusalem salad, side of hummus, and sparkling water.

Toast with Cherry, Yogurt, and Honeycomb

This week we’re in Washington. After a few stops to get fresh produce in the neighborhood, I knew I wanted to share this delicious take on a breakfast toast. At this point, toast has grown in popularity and can be found at any cafe. Paired with a Gibraltar or Capp, it’s filling, looks stunning, and takes minimal prep. Previously, we’ve hopped on the toasts bandwagon with berries, cheeses, and sweet and savory options. With this toast, we’re focusing on flavor pairings highlighting simple yet stunning ingredients.

Happy July 1st everyone!

With the start of this month, marks the start of a travel season for us. It’s a balance between hustle and adventure. Working toward taking time hoff has never been such a true sentiment. This week we’re headed to Seattle and later in the month, we’re off to Arizona. Luckily, all the laundry is done, house is clean, and our home is under loving and watchful eye while we’re gone. It’s amazing how quickly June has flown by and I know July will fill the same way.
