A Little Something for Spring

Tonnino, Tuna Fillets with Capers and Garlic

Love at first and last bite. The 100 percent olive oil clings to the fresh, yellowfin tuna fillets that come in a jar surrounded by salty capers and aromatic garlic. The combination of flavors holds my taste buds hostage from lunch until dinner—taking me on a Mediterranean journey using nothing but a fork. Who doesn’t like to travel?

Amy and Brian Coconut Water with Cinnamon

Coconut water with a hint of spice gives me life. The cinnamon flavor perks me up in the morning and the coconut adds a refreshing taste to my smoothies in the afternoon.
