Salads

  I love the idea of serving a salad for Thanksgiving dinner. Normally, there are so many heavy foods thrown into the mix (at least in my home there are (=). A salad is the perfect way to tone the heaviness of every other dish on the table. Honestly, I like this Autumn salad with …

  I’m pretty sure this is the most delicious chicken salad I’ve ever made. What makes it so super awesome is that it is so versatile! I love it partly because I love chicken salads, but I also love it because it’s so light! Who knew that you could make chicken salad light? I’ve always …

  So, let’s highlight the flavors of summer just ONE more time before the season comes to an end; and make a fresh salad where the peach is the star! You really have to savor these moments! They will be gone in a jiffy. Did I just say “jiffy?” OH my. Anyway, I really loved …

  Pasta and greens have to be one of my favorite combinations in the world. Toss them with avocado, green beans and some dried fruit, and you have yourself a real winner. I was certainly in need of a big salad this week after all of that pulled pork (which by the way, there is …

Whether you are hosting a picnic or attending one, I’m sure you have some cooking to do. If you aren’t cooking, I’m sure you will be picking up something pre-made at your local grocery store. I’m here to stop you from doing this! You will be surprised at how easy and affordable it can be …

Well it’s Sunday. How was everyone’s weekend?! Ours just flew by way too fast. Way. Too. Fast. It was beautiful here. Perfect 75-80 degree F weather. You can’t get much better than that.
