The past few months have been a mixed bag of some good, and some less good things, but now I'm back and ready to get back to the swing of things here at Seefoodplay. Life threw a few things at me, some planned, some unplanned, and I've definitely taken this blogging break to re-focus on what's really important, and in doing that I realized that it all comes down to one thing: balance. I've been . . .
Hey ya'll! I’ve really been looking forward to making lasagna because it’s one of my all-time favorites, and it was also one of the first recipes I really learned to do well. Besides, it’s just one of those feel-good comfort foods that you can make anytime, so you never need to justify this dish -- just do it!

I don’t know about you guys, but I have a bad habit of under-estimating tasks that I take on. Organizing my wedding was one big fat example of that...times 100!

Over the years, I got used to French products and relied less and less on my precious stock of American goods. I remember once during my first year in Paris I literally came back with an entire suitcase of American goodies like peanut butter, . . .
I must be craving a taste of home these days because most of the recipes I’ve cooked up in the past few weeks have been my own homemade versions of some of my favorite childhood treats.

And it’s fun to make, so . . .
