  14. Hi Val...me again. Hey, I just bookmarked the angel hair and asparagus dish, and the orzo. I LOVE the angel hair with asparagus at Nordstrom Cafe, and this recipe does sound similar. I can't wait to make it! I happen to have everything on hand except the asparagus to make this tonight! Also, there is a fabulous deli near my Mom's house that has an orzo salad that I pine for!!! I can't wait to make yours too.
    Happy New Year!!!
    XO Kris

  24. I have no doubt these taste amazing, but have to say that the photos are STUNNING. I love how much color you use, and how you use creative displays like cutting boards. You inspire me to take prettier food pics in 2013!!! And I'd like the bbq/mac & cheese ramekin now.... :)

  28. I think I've pinned almost every one of these posts ! That Grape Feta Orzo Salad is to die for. I'm liking the look of the Mediterranean Spread. I think that one is next on my list. Happy New Year Val!
