packed bags

It’s June, and traditionally during this time we are getting excited for the summer. School is out, graduation ceremonies and parties commencing, wedding season is gearing up, and vacations are being planned. Things in 2020 look a little different.

Guiltless Grilled Cheese with Roma Tomatoes and Fresh Organic Oregano

grilled cheese

Another one from my forthcoming Haute & Healthy collection. Grilled cheese is a comfort food favorite but you might know that this fried-in-butter sandwich is usually very high in fat.
