Yesterday was one of those “get things done” days and food was high on the to-do list! First, I spent time in the kitchen prepping my Healthy Layered Mediterranean Dip that I was going to be making on today’s WBIR/Mornings with Fox 43. Its more involved than just preparing the recipe in that you have …

“Food is our common ground, a universal experience..” James Beard. This quote certainly held true today when during lunch with one of my best friends, Jenny, and then again, while getting my toes manicured with Amy, the subject of food played a major part in the conversation.
