Strawberries and Tomatoes

Hi everyone!  I’ve been missing in action here for quite some time.   I’m still on hiatus, but you can find me on my other blog, Paz’s New York Minute.  I hope to start blogging here, in the near future.   Until then, see you at the other blog.



Cucumber, Melon, Lemon and Lime-Infused Water

July 12, 2013 | Filed Under Infused Water | 16 Comments 


I recently made my own citrus-infused water, for the very first time.  I made orange and lemon-infused water.  It was very refreshing and perfect to drink during the horrid heatwave we’ve been having.  So, now I’m on an infused-water-making-roll!   WooHoo!  I made it again and this time, I decided to use cucumbers, melons, lemons and lime.   I filled half of the pitcher (and mason jars) with the ingredients and added cold water.  Then, I let it sit and infuse, in the fridge for at least 2- 4 hours.   I’m hooked on infused water.  It’s simply fun to make and a joy to drink.  I did not use any type of sweetner.  It’s not needed.   However, I suppose you can use it, if you want.   I look forward to making more fruit, herb, and vegetable-infused drinks for the rest of the summer.   I think next, I’ll try watermelon and cilantro!   If you have any suggestions, please tell me.

On another note, I’ll be taking a short break from blogging here.  So, I’ll see you in a couple of weeks.  Keep having a good summer, everyone.  If your neck of the woods is as hot as it’s been in New York City, make some infused water of your choice.  It will certainly help you keep cool in the heat.

Chick Pea Salad, Anyone?

June 4, 2013 | Filed Under Beans, Salad | 6 Comments 

I made this chickpea salad the other day.  I love colorful food.  Well, of course, I love tasty food, but I also love when there’s color on my plate.  This dish consisted of chick peas, of course, red pepper, red onions, cucumber, balsamic vinegar, and olive oil.  Oh, and herbs like oregano.  Simple to make and delicious.
