The first Monday in September is Labor Day and is dedicated to the American workers! Something which we should be celebrating daily for the difference they make in our lives! We celebrate them today and thank them for all they do for us.
The first Labor Day was celebrated in New York City in 1882 but that is not when it became a national holiday! Who created the holiday might be unclear but it is something we celebrate proudly every year.
When Labor Day rolls around, it always marks the unofficial end of summer which flies by once Memorial Day comes and …

One of the many fabulous summertime perks is having a lush, green garden. If you have a green-thumb then you’re probably eating home-grown veggies and enjoying beautiful flowers by the vase full. And, of course, one of the easiest and most commonly garden-grown treat, herbs!
Herbs add some serious flavor to food. Fresh basil adds a punch to pasta sauces and is unbelievably good on homemade pizza. Home-grown dill will have you eating coleslaw every night. And add fresh mint leaves to you’re iced tea, or simply chew on them to freshen breath!
If you’re an herb-lover then the Herb …
eggplant panini from acefitness.org
The sandwich has been a luncheon trademark for as long as I can remember. Satisfying and nutritious, there are endless options waiting to be stuffed between a couple slices of bread for a mid-day meal. From club sandwiches to tea sandwiches to wraps and flat-breads; one of my most beloved has to be the Panini.
Crispy on the outside with a golden crust and a warm, melty inside makes the panini irresistible.
And now you no longer have to eat-out to get your panini fix. The Giada Gourmet Panini Maker from Target is what you’ve been waiting for. It’s …
grilled pizza from chow.com
Summertime means bbq‘s in the back yard every night. So finding new things to throw on the grill is a must, because no matter how tasty the burgers and dogs might be you have to add some variety to the mix.
There are so many things you can grill up for dinner from bbq chicken to swordfish steaks to kabobs of peppers and eggplant. I’ve even heard of grilled watermelon as a substitute for a burger. But one of my favorite things to cook on the grill has to be pizza.
Grilled pizza takes practice. You can’t just do …
Cooking is fun and rewarding, but at times it can also feel overwhelming. Between chopping, peeling, sautéing and stirring I often feel like I need four more hands to get everything right. A pot of simmering sauce left alone a moment too long can be scorched to ruin before we even realize.
And what about those sauces, soups and stews that need your constant attention for multiple hours on end? I for one would rather not stand in front of the stove, spoon in hand, for half the day and stir without rest. But, if it’s all for a fabulous outcome, …
One thing I love about the weekends is putting the cereal aside until Monday and indulging in some real stick-to-your-ribs kind of breakfast. Chocolate chip pancakes used to be my Saturday usual, but these days anything from omelets with toast and home fries to french toast doused in syrup and powered sugar are fine by me.
When I studied abroad last year I did a bit of traveling through Europe. I ended up spending a weekend in Brussels and the most memorable part were the waffles.
Belgian waffle in Brussels: best breakfast ever
Nothing compares to a true Belgian waffle; coated in crunchy …
One of my favorite comfort foods has always been pasta. No matter how you serve it, with butter and melted parmesan, or doused in sweet red marinara sauce, it’s always satisfying and delicious. It may sound strange to some but one of my favorite ways to have pasta growing up was casserole-style, mixed with tuna fish, mayonnaise and dill pickles, mmm. And I can’t forget to mention my mother’s scrumptious pasta salads that are the staple at most of our barbecue’s all summer long.
As of late, pasta has gotten a bad rep. Many of us hold the noodle accountable for …
