Simple food experiences… to create a more connected life.

Do you long for a simpler time — to slow down, connect with the people you care about, and share great food?

Are you tired of the same old response to your question “How are you?” You know what’s coming; “Crazy busy.”

We’re all crazy busy, and some days we wonder how that happened.

Spanish Sunday debunks the myth of “too busy to take a break.”

Imagine creating an incredibly delicious and simple food experience for your friends and family. Spanish Sunday combines the best of Spanish customs, wonderful food, (maybe a bit of wine!) and lessons from our rural grandparents.

Kick back, relax, leave the technology behind, and strengthen your connections with others. You can do it, and we’ll show you the way!

I know, I know – the one thing you don’t have is time.

Your time is precious – and none of us can point fingers about taking advantage of quick, processed foods.  Just imagine how relaxed and refreshed you would feel after a long, lazy (super simple) get-together with great people.

Come play with us — and get the free mini book “The 6 Hour Lunch.”

When you subscribe, you’ll be an honorary part of the family, and we’ll send blog posts and occasional updates. You’ll get recipes, ideas for no-fuss entertaining, and lots of hints for how to make time to cook (and some great cheats).

And if you just love great food, but don’t want to cook, we’ll show you how to create a wonderful, good-for-you food experience with no cooking required.

I hope you’ll join us!
