I made this today to enjoy alongside some lamb chops so I figured I’d share the recipe with you. I usually make this with chopped cucumbers as well, but the colors were so rich and beautiful without them, that I left off the green for this batch. This would be a stunning addition to any BBQ or outdoor party. Enjoy …

I have been working on an assignment for my class this week that includes a therapeutic meal plan for people who suffer from fibromyalgia and I decided that one recipe I’d add to the plan would be for a salad that included some kind of greens, beets, orange and artichoke hearts.

I love making salads out of whatever random ingredients I have in the fridge. Sometimes I try to think of a theme or some kind of standard dish that I can re-mix into a salad. When I scoured the fridge today for lettuce-topping ingredients, I came out with what looked like the makings of a classic club sandwich. This salad …

I’ve made butternut squash soup many times in my day, but I can’t say it’s always come out as well as I’d imagined it would. I honestly think that the homemade chicken broth I use makes ALL the difference. Making chicken broth is as easy as throwing a bunch of chicken bones (around 1 chicken’s worth or so), onions, garlic …

Easy Recipe: Early Girl Tomato & Avocado Salad

Now these are tomatoes! I grew up not enjoying the flavor of tomatoes other than in ketchup or tomato sauce. I had only ever tasted a conventional, large, light-ish red in color tomato. I always thought they were slimy and sort of flavorless when they were raw and sliced up. Even in a tomato salad, the flavor and texture of …

Recipe: An Italian-Style Brown Rice Salad

All of these items can be purchased at Trader Joe’s…of course. This is by no means a strict recipe, that’s not how I cook…I cook by randomly throwing together things I think might taste okay to me that I have in the fridge and the pantry (yes, we all know both of those are well-stocked in my apartment). Then sometimes …
