Keeping with the theme of not turning on the oven, this week we are bringing you a great summer salad from Tyler Herald, executive chef at Napolese Pizzeria, an Indianopolis restaurant that uses the produce of more than ten local farmers on its menu. Tyler’s summer green bean salad with cherry tomatoes and peach gastrique just jumped off the page at me and I so wish I could taste it in his restaurant, but am so happy he agreed to share the recipe for it here on the column. It is a beautiful colorful salad that takes advantage of the finest produce in season now: corn, tomatoes, peaches, and green beans. I look forward to making it this weekend. If you try it out, too, please let us know!

Last week, we offered up some snazzy gemstone-themed bookplates for all your summer reading needs. This week, we find ourselves still very much on a bit of a gemstone kick, but come on—can you really blame us?
One of the most difficult things to do as a business owner or creative is give yourself some time off to be inspired.
Since our resident ex-pat, Anne Ditmeyer, gave us her insider tour of Paris today, I decided it would be the perfect time to look over some of my favorite French homes, from Paris to the countryside.
Last week I did a quick roundup of some great Biz Ladies posts that may help to keep you moving through the summer slowness, and today I thought I’d share another selection of articles that offer some great advice and resources on keeping organized.
