My Apologies

Greetings, loved ones.
Let's take a journey.

I know a place
Where the grass is really greener.
Warm, wet, and wild.
There must be something in the water...

You could travel the world,
But nothing comes close to the Golden Coast.

When Katy Perry penned those wise words for her hit song "California Gurls" (and, yes, my spell check works just fine, thank you), she really hit the nail on the head.

The reason I'm telling you this is not to get that catchy jam stuck in your head (as it is now in mine), but rather to offer an explanation/apology for the somewhat lackluster posts last week.  You see, the husband and I just returned from a weeklong vacation in California.  Much like Snoop Dogg in California Gurls, cooking was more of an appearance than a star.  Hey, dinner is still hot even when it's delivery!  

So, this week, I'm bringing my A-game.  Get ready...

Vacation Potatoes
At least I did something productive while I was gone.

Salmon en Cocotte
Sounds fancy, doesn't it?

Chicken Salsa Wrap
Next time you have a bunch of stuff in your fridge, just wrap it in a tortilla.  It might work out!

Seven Layer Bars
Oh, yes.

San Francisco
This is not actually a recipe...I just couldn't resist one last vacation photo.


  1. oooh lala - quite the scenic photo and a lovely menu - glad to have you back in the Wisc Fluggie

  2. Good to be back, Shivani! The middle west has welcomed us with some FABULOUS weather, by the way! Ah, fall...
