Grilled Chicken & Veggies Salad

It’s Thursday night and I’m currently starting my 2nd week of 21 Day Fix.  It’s a Beachbody workout program by Autumn Calabrese in case you don’t know.  I’ve used it quite a few times to really give my body a good healthy workout.  This time I’m determined to go the full 21 days without stopping….

Broccoli & Apple Salad

We lost power last night.  It went out around 4PM.  Peco said it would be back by 6…. at 6 they said it would be back by 10…. it eventually came on around midnight.  So, we ran out and got takeout & beer & headed back home before it got dark.  We sat in the…

Green Goddess Salad

As promised, I’m staying true to my salad obsession lately and sharing all of the recipes with you!  The warm roasted squash & brussels sprouts salad was pretty delicious yesterday and might be one of my favorites.  However, this green goddess salad will knock your socks off! There’s something so beautifully healthy about the color…

Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Squash Salad

If it was October, I’d call this an Autumn Roasted Salad because it just looks like fall to me (and there’s squash involved). However, it’s April so we are going to call it a Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Squash Salad!!! 🙂 I can’t get enough of the variety and colors in my salads lately. What…

Cool Cucumber Salad

Growing up my Dad always made cucumber salad with pasta!  I’ve never heard of anyone else making this… especially with the pasta!  There was a tiny little butchers shop in the town I grew up that made it sometimes and my Dad bought it whenever the butcher had it.  It’s simple, refreshing, and perfect for…

Mango, Avocado and Sweet Baby Lettuce Salad

I’ve been in the mood for simple, delicious, fresh salads lately.  These three ingredient salads are delicious, easy, and the variety is perfect! I used sweet baby lettuce and added a big handful to a plate.   Then I sliced up a mango into bite size pieces.  Then I sliced up one whole avocado again…

Kale, Blood Orange and Feta Salad

Sometimes the best things in life are the most simple. I’ve been on such a blood orange kick lately. When I find good juicy and dark blood oranges in the store I want to buy them ALL. There’s something so beautiful about the color and simplistic goodness these babies bring to the table. Plus, they…

BLT-A “Caesar” Salad

I’m a huge fan of BLTS now, however when I was a kid that was a different story.  I didn’t want tomato on mine and well, I just didn’t like the combination of the ingredients – I’d rather have had a LT sandwich with mayo and bacon on the side.  I’m still a little different…

Homemade Ranch Dressing

I’ve never been so mad at myself. I’m a ranch-a-holic. I put ranch dressing on everything & for a hot sauce, I’ve always used hot butter ranch on everything. Obviously, not being able to have dairy puts a damper on my ranch addiction. I always buy the ranch packets to make my hot butter ranch…

At Home Salad Bar

I was craving a salad for approximately four days – not even kidding.  I had a house salad before dinner the other night but my body just needed vegetables. I have found that if I drink a Redbull, my body desperately needs salad that night.  I think it’s my body’s way of telling me that…

Quinoa Salad with Chicken

Quinoa is a gluten free grain and a super healthy one too!  It was over 100 degrees and well, if I would have realized how hot it truly felt on my deck this afternoon I would have told my husband we were having italian ice for lunch. Instead, I stuck with being the amazing wife…
