  • Whole Wheat Linguine with Tuna Wine Sauce

    Lisa needs to start carbo-loading for the marathon so we wanted to try a new pasta dish, and this one was quick, easy, and didn’t require us to go out and buy anything special — everything was already in the fridge or on the shelf. I’m normally not a fan of “creamy” sauces, but this […]

  • Chicken Fajita Salad

    Another delicious no-brainer grilling-season meal.
