Tuscan Bean Salad with Sage

To kick off Veg Month 2012 (and to make lunches easier during the week), I made this delicious, super easy bean salad. Seriously, this is so easy (and versatile – but more on that later) that I know I’ll make this whether it’s veg month or not. It’s just nice to know that lunch is…

Arugula Salad with Fig, Prosciutto, Walnuts and Parmesan

The holidays are almost over and we’re all looking forward to the day when there are no more tins of cookies and brownies and sweets lying around the house. It’s quite possibly the one time of year in which we are so tired of desserts, we never crave them. We actually crave light, fresh fare!…
