{recipe} chopped greek salad

I often find the hubby and our little man swimming in the pool when I get home from work. I’ll chat and play with them for a bit and then I head over to the garden patch and check on the tomato plants. I check on the plants a few times a week and harvest […]

{recipe} caprese salad bites

Summer is here! It’s welcoming us with a heatwave this week, it hit 108 degrees yesterday in our neighborhood. We spend most of our summer weekends having family and friends over to swim in our backyard. Personally, if I’m spending the day at the pool, I like to graze all day long and make recipes […]

autumn salad

  Wow, it’s already Nov 11, can’t believe it. The first week of every month is always a blur for me, it’s the busiest time at work every month, so the whole week just passes by really quickly. So now it’s the second week and I’m coming up for fresh air and have some time […]

{recipe} homemade taco seasoning & taco salad

  When I was doing Whole30, I got really good at reading labels and it opened up my eyes. Even my seasonings and dried herb mixes had a ton of ingredients I couldn’t understand or pronounced.  I made this taco seasoning back in March and this week I made my second batch. It’s great with […]

It’s so great when I find a salad combination that I like so much because it makes grocery shopping so much easier, especially when a salad can satisfy me for lunch. I am on week three on having this salad in our weekly menu and most likely I will be eating this for the rest […]

Salads – Packing on the Veggies

After the holidays, I felt the need to hit the restart button when it came to foods that I was eating. Between Thanksgiving and New Years, I ate too many heavy foods during social gatherings. I ate too much sugar and I definitely did not have enough activity. It was cold and I promised myself […]

New Salad Flavors – BJ’s Restaurant

My friend Lizelle was in town recently and we got to hangout and meet-up for dinner with the rest of our circle of friends. Even if we haven’t each other for awhile, we always just seem to pick-up where we left off….I haven’t seen her since my bridal shower last year. I’m really grateful for […]
