broccoli and potato gribiche

Do you ever get stuck in a rut on what to make as a side dish?  I know I do.  I have a ton of sides I love and make often (roasted veggies, kale chips, kale or green salad, steamed broccoli with cheese sauce, cucumber salad and sauted brussel sprouts with bacon to name a…

fatoosh salad

This weekend was HOT.  Which made adorable rompers a must (see above cuteness).  We brought our A/C window unit into the house and have had the fans going non stop to keep the house a bit cooler.  When it’s super warm like this (mid 80s-90 is hot here in Washington), I really dislike cooking.  The…

creamy corn and bean salad + sunday prep

Stews are out and salads are so in! I had some chicken thawing for a dinner this week and didn’t really know…

curried grain salad

Every week for our Bradley Method class (which is tomorrow’s topic!) we bring a snack to share.  One week was a ‘meat and cheese’ (or something with protein), another was our favorite salad, and last night was some type of whole grain.  I do love my whole grains! While grocery shopping over the weekend I…

salmon over caesar pasta salad

One bowl + one skillet + one plate + one fork = one very happy and satisfied belly. Well, if there are 2, 3, 4 of you then that’s how many satisfied bellies you’ll be left with. Just like I promised, as part of the 7 healthy salads to end the year with, I’ve got…
