According to the responses I got from my Instagram story yesterday, a lot of people dream about food. I’m not the only one who dreams up new recipes and dishes late at night!

I officially got back to work this week! I’ve freelanced for the past two years, which was great and all, but, I really missed human interaction! I joined the team over at Chewse as an account manager! Luckily, I get to be surrounded by my first love, food, every single day!
In my opinion, spring time is veggie pasta salad time. Spring is a time for picnics and outings – and pasta salad travels well! Just throw some in a mason jar, grab a fork and you have the perfect meal for on the go! My pasta salad is loaded with veggies and baby approved! My kid ate a cup of it, veggies and all, which is a miracle in itself! Continue Reading “Avocado Pasta Salad”
