Picture Perfect Anniversary Breakfast

Mr. Fancy Glass and I have been married for 11 years as of mid June. This gorgeous spread was our anniversary breakfast. He gave me a great surprise and got us a room at the new Tokyo Penisula Hotel, we had a fanstastic dinner, a relaxing romantic time, and a wonderful breakfast before heading back to the work-a-day world.

My hubby really helped me become the foodie that I am. He is a wonderful culinary explorer and appreciator of all things F&B.

This breakfast was delivered and set up by room service. What a treat on every level. It was all delicious. (though the eggs were overcooked.)

Yum! and here's to the next 14 years! I want to have a big 25th Anniversary Adventure somewhere!

p.s. Thanks Hubbyness

remember Christmas as we head into summer

Summer Tasty Dinner

In Summer time many people don’t enjoy cooking. Too much fuss, too much fun to be missed outside. But summer is when the food is fresh, and a good healthy light meal is so satisfying.

I am an unapologetic omnivore. I respect vegetarians but I am not one of them. So it is kind of surprising that one of my favorite food blogs is 101 Cookbooks. The author Heidi is an amazing photographer, and creative chef. Her recipes are fantastic and though they are all vegetarian, I never even notice that. It is just good food. Not vegetarian food—just good food.

So even though this season is often not thought of as a big time for cooking… Try this is a great little summery- recipe. Fast, fun, healthy and delicious. Plus I love avocados and brown rice. And it is a snap.

And her newest cookbook.

What are you cooking up this weekend?
