Salads

As most of you already know, I don’t post salads very often, and if you haven’t already noticed I’ve been on kind of a junk food kick lately. I blame the football season. It’s seriously a mecca for all things bad for you. This salad is totally different though. I could take or leave brussels …

Let me just tell you that it has been quite the STRUGGLE getting this recipe written up and published today. I swear the world is against me today. Not only is it incredibly dreary outside (rain, thunder, and a TORNADO WATCH…YES…a tornado watch), but the lighting for photographing has been God awful (because of the …

  Is it Friday yet? Ugh, what a week it has been, and it’s only Monday! I don’t think anyone ever prepared me for what it took to clean a larger house. You grow up wanting the biggest, baddest house, but your parents fail to tell you that you will actually have to clean it! …

  Once in a while, I just want a really good salad. This chopped chicken salad combines some of my favorite salad ingredients. I’m a sucker for a combination of fruits and veggies when I make a salad. I think it’s that touch of sweetness I crave from the fruit that gets my wheels turning. …
