The Green Jersey Burrito

Without Fabio Aru competing in the Tour de France this year, we’ve gotten behind Slovak star, Peter Sagan.  Or I should say, I have gotten behind Peter Sagan, because my husband has always liked him.  Sagan’s a beast, especially when it comes to sprinting.  He is fun to watch!  Plus, when he makes his way to…

Garlicky Potato-Zucchini Pancakes

I also prepare them by baking them, instead of frying them. The flavor is still there. All in all, they are easy to make, smell amazing baking in the oven,…
