Panzanella is a classic summer salad that requires little effort and zero cooking. It’s easy, delicious and can be served as a complete meal, especially on an exceptionally heat-ridden day as we have here, today.

Happy Easter (almost) weekend everyone! If you’re like me, you haven’t done anything whatsoever for Easter yet. I will have about fifteen people here on Sunday to celebrate not only Easter, but also our son’s fourth birthday! So, let’s get started with the most obvious Easter staple, [...]
