BBQ Ranch Chicken Salad

September 3, 2012

Labor Day is upon us, and I can’t believe that fall is almost here!

Just kidding!

I live in Florida.

Fall doesn’t happen until, like, December.

So with that in mind, I will continue to offer amazing salad recipes.

Yeah, that’s right. I said “amazing salad recipes.” Read the rest of this entry »

Cobb salad with garlic ranch dressing

July 9, 2012

Me: Any ideas for new foods to try soon?

Husband: How about some salads?

Me: *Stunned silence.*

Those of you who know my sweet husband are aware of his being a, for the most part, meat-and-potatoes kind of guy.

So imagine my surprise at this response.

Granted, I had just served him the heaviest, most artery-clogging (but worth it), delicious salisbury steak the night before.

But, still. …

Southwestern quinoa salad

February 5, 2012

Over the last year, a healthy grain called “quinoa” has been all over the foodie blogosphere.

(See, I notice things.)

Apparently, it’s the best thing since kale chips.

Quinoa, pronounced “KEEN-wah,” looks like tiny brown balls of health.

I was skeptical, to say the least. Read the rest of this entry »


Spiced chicken with couscous salad

January 16, 2012

I’m not too keen on New Year’s resolutions.

For the most part, it’s lying to yourself.

Two weeks later you’re back to who you were and what you were doing in the first place.

Who needs the added stress? Read the rest of this entry »

Um, yeah. It was a high of 80 degrees here today.

So, while every blogger on the face of the earth is digging out the fall pumpkin recipes, I’m cruising like summer isn’t actually over.

Because in Florida … it isn’t.

Actually, now is the time of year that we by-gosh *earned* having suffered through 100+ degree heat for two months straight.

Now is the time when it starts being bearable outside.  Read the rest of this entry »

There’s something wonderful about buying fruits and vegetables this time of year.

They taste fresher and sweeter and … well, they taste like they’re supposed to.

(Basically, the opposite of hothouse tomatoes in December. Ick.) Read the rest of this entry »


Tomato and Mozzarella Salad

Tomato Mozzarella Salad

Three things that always (yes, always) go together: tomatoes, mozzarella, and basil. There are many ways to concoct these ingredients, but the most basic — and arguably one of the most delicious — is the simple tomato and mozzarella salad. There is a caveat, however. If you’re looking to skimp on price, this is not the recipe with which to do it. [Exit: my fellow poor grad students].
