I LOVE this lasagna. Fresh veggies, no need to pre-cook the lasagna noodles, AND both a béchamel and red sauce. Mmmmmm.
I’m not going to lie…..I really did not think that I’d ever need gazpacho in my life. Cold soup just seemed a bit weird to me……that is until my sister ordered it for lunch at a beautiful spot in Telluride, Colorado.
She’s like “Lauren, you’re the foodie; what’s up with you and gazpacho?” Me: eye roll. She then asked, ok ….really she made me, take a little taste. I really didn’t know what to expect….but after that first slurp….man o man….I was obsessed!
It was just so FRESH tasting….that was my first thought, just simply summer in a bowl. Then, I quickly went to the texture. It was so cool, smooth, and refreshing. I was in love.
So, I got to thinking……how in the world am I going to create a gazpacho this awesome?
Gazpacho comes from Seville, Spain. Traditionally, it is a mixture of raw vegetables, olive oil, vinegar, and bread.
Although my version doesn’t have bread (I’m not a fan of the texture it adds), I do stick to the main ingredients: olive oil (Crevasi of course:), fresh tomatoes, cucumbers, bell peppers, and garlic. Add a bit of pepper if you like some heat.
Yummy…this combination gives the soup a vibrant, fresh taste and silky texture. Save this no-cook recipe and blend it up on a hot day! Sit back and enjoy all of the deliciousness that this summer has to offer!

The last week in August always makes me feel like my summer days are coming to an end waaaaaay too quickly. I think about how much I'm going to miss all of the heirloom tomatoes, fresh herbs, and sweet ripe peaches! So THIS weekend I'm just going to get peachy with it and savor all that summer has to offer!
I'll fill my Memorial Day bbq with my favorite peach inspired recipes! Like this lovely.....Peach Sangria. This cocktail is perfect because you can mix up a big batch of it the day before your gathering, and just pull it out when your friends arrive! (or a littler earlier if your me *wink*)
Looking like a hero are you now? I'd say yaaaaas:)
