I love trying out new food and places and I just generally love living for food. And that’s why this week I decided to share some of my most favourite food places in London.

4 Easy Recipes Every Busy Adult Needs for Quick, Healthy Meals
Eating healthy is at the top of almost everyone's priority list, yet it feels so unattainable to prepare three healthy meals consecutively everyday for myself, let alone a family! I get it—as a mom of five, it’s absolutely essential for me to have a handful of quick, easy-to-make meals I can whip up at a moment’s notice that won’t break the bank and add nutritional value to my kids’ diets. Most of us have the best intention to prepare healthy food for our family, but as soon as our week gets busy, nutritional value often goes out the window and our old friend “convenience” swoops in and takes its place.
The Power Of Words
Have you ever been to Italy and ordered a three-cheese sandwich for breakfast and got excited to discover what cheeses go really well together? Have you then received a sandwich with not one but two types of American processed cheese slices and a spreadable cheese with nothing else between the squared white bread? If that sounds like you (#SoRelatable) what was your course of action afterward? When this happened to me I couldn't find a better way to fight the system of dubious foods in well-located, presentable places next to busy train stations than:
Watermelon Dessert Pizzas
When people hear the word "pizza," it is natural for them to think of the round dough topped with tomatoes, cheese, and often various other ingredients, such as pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms, onions, olives, vegetables, and other toppings. Here is another type of pizza that is sure to please.
Summer Begins with Strawberries
Our summer food season revolves around the desire to fill our shelves with fresh summer produce to use in the dreary days of winter. It might also be pride and ego that makes us think that we can preserve summer better than any factory. We don’t have to count the bugs in our foods since we wash more than 3 times when prepping food (unless beets - then maybe 5 times). There is also the gratification of knowing that we have taken food at its best and put it up to enjoy later. We love having the jars lined up on the shelves at the end of September. We are surrounded by farms here in Central PA and some are minimal or no spray - and organic. Some aren't. We buy from both, but still the produce is at the height of its perfection. We love it.

I just want mac n' cheese so here are some fun facts about my mom's iconic summer pasta salad i guess
Did somebody say three free boxes of mac n' cheese just for entering a Vocal challenge?!?! Oh boy! Is this Christmas or summer? I can't tell. To paraphrase Marlon Brando in The Godfather, this is a damn good offer I can't refuse. Just like Vito Corleone in the first movie of the trilogy, I want to firmly shake BOTH HANDS of the genius who thought of this brilliant idea. You've literally made me come out of a Vocal blogging hiatus just for this challenge. Thank you. Honor on you, honor on your cow, honor on the mac n' cheese company sponsoring this shindig. You've made this mac n' cheese lovin' girl very happy.
A Cool Choice...
For most of us, summer is a time when we want to relax, settle into a very comfortable deck chair, have a drink, and let the sun and heat allow us to forget how quickly the moment can pass. There are picnics, festivals, barbecues, family gatherings and vacations to be had, and with all of that, we have food to eat. For me, my family’s food and meals were always full of different varieties of colors, flavors, spices and styles. The difficult thing is to try to choose one thing that defined our summer eating. Barbecues would provide a lot of choices straight from the grill; then there was watermelon (not a favourite food, but still quite popular), sorrel (a drink made from the dried plant of the same name, and still not a favourite), ginger beer (pass), homemade candies and cakes and a lot of salad (oh, so much salad). But none of these choices really brings my childhood summers home to me (the only summers that really count). I have to choose something that involves my own family and certain outings to the farm where I participated in gathering this particular choice.
