Oh, heyyyy there!
I have been trying to be better about bringing healthy lunch and snacks to work during the week.
For this week, I whipped-up a delicious quinoa “grecian-inspired” salad. I made enough to last me the entire week!
Here’s what I used to make the salad:
- Quinoa (duh)
- Grape Tomatoes
- Red and Yellow Peppers
- Crumbled Feta Cheese
- Lemon Zest and Juice
- Mint Leaves
- Olive Oil, and Salt (to taste)
It is both delicious, and very healthy (was so tempted to say nutritious…)!
For a recipe similar to what I concocted, you can refer to this site!

WELCOME to … Café Carolina!
Because I have had such a great time making all sorts of recipes lately, I decided it would be fun to make my own little café for a night!
After going to Sojourn (a great restaurant on the Upper East Side) for the first time, I fell in love with their Roasted Butternut Squash Salad… and SO, I decided to make it myself!
The sangria is something that I also made for a second time this week when I had some friends over. Eating the fruit after is of course my favorite part!
Why not try making the salad and sangria yourself?! I promise you will not be disappointed!

After meeting my friend Melissa and her mom at The Smile, a restaurant downtown on Bond St. (If you haven’t been — Go. Now.) I could not stop craving their Manouri Cheese & Fig sandwich.
AND SO… I decided to make my own!
What’s in it?
Sourdough bread – I used French bread
Manouri Cheese – I substituted this with Ricotta Salata
Tis delicious. Try it. Also, visit The Smile.
