Back to school: Channeling simplicity and elegance with a savoury cheesecake

Yikes! Where did the summer go?

Spaghetti with creamy tomato-lemon sauce

It only seems fitting that today, as I (attempt to) arrive in Paris for the summer (it’s a long story involving a 14 hour flight delay), that I am posting a recipe over on the Real Women of Philadelphia website for a pasta sauce inspired by another fabulous trip, this time to Italy. When we […]
