Sometimes, it's the simple things in life that make it worthwhile. A rose picked for you on a journey home. A postcard from a friend or a bunch of fresh greens that in less than five minutes can be turned into a handy pantry staple! I love it fresh with pasta or spread on some gluten free foccacia. It's divine!
