Easy Ratatouille Recipe

Homemade Ratatouille- a yummy way to cook seasonal produce

Recently, my family and I have been making efforts to move to more of a “real food” diet.  Not surprising, this journey has been a lot easier for my husband than anyone else.  He loves vegetables; really before meeting him I didn’t know people enjoyed vegetables, I kind of thought we were all in the same “I know they are good for me so I need to eat them” boat.  Ha!  Continue reading…
