My Inspiration . . .

I've always had a love for baking, but it wasn't until I was in college that I had a desire to learn how to cook. In 2009, I decided to start my own cooking blog so I could access my recipes from anywhere, and was born.

I love trying new recipes and finding ways to make them healthier & happier on the hips! I love everything about food: the taste, the smells, the presentation, the experimenting, etc. I love to entertain, so I figured this was a great way to bring people together. Hope you enjoy trying out some of the recipes. Happy cooking!

Couscous with Cherry Tomatoes & Basil

Couscous is one of my go-to side dishes. I always have several boxes in my pantry for last minute dinners!
{ Prep Time: 5 mins / Cook Time: 5 mins / Difficulty: Easy / Yields: 2 cups }

1 (5.9 oz) box of 5 minute parmesan couscous
15-20 cherry tomatoes, halved
1 Tbsp fresh basil, chopped
salt & pepper, to taste

1. Cook couscous according to package directions. Meanwhile, chop basil and slice tomatoes in half.
2. Combine all ingredients and serve warm or cold. Tastes great with salads too!
