I love having salad for dinner, but have kind of steered away from it while I’ve had toddlers at home. Without any, or many, molars it’s hard for them to chew and I don’t like to have to make a separate dinner for them. It took a while for me to figure out that the little ones love deconstructed salad just as much I love having it for dinner. Duh.
Try this summer strawberry salad paired with grilled chicken, bacon and creamy poppyseed dressing. The kids will LOVE all these elements, even if you have to separate them on the plate! This strawberry salad has been my go-to lunch lately. Something about the sweet strawberries, salty bacon, and creamy tangy dressing make me want to…
My son, Shane, has been on this pasta salad kick. So, we went on the search for exactly the kind of recipe that he would love… and, we found it. Pasta, packed with meat, olives, cheese, green peppers, and drizzled with Italian dressing! We found the recipe on All Recipes, but ended up changing the…
I remember as a child, when we had salad it was a combination of lettuce, tomatoes and sometimes cucumber. Nowadays salads are made up of a wide range of meats, veggies, fruits and cheeses. I love a good salad and this one is a good one!
My grand kids love it. We had it for Sunday dinner and my youngest grand son told me, “Granny that salad is popping!” He is so funny, but in all seriousness if you want something that is nutritious and a quick meal, this is your salad.
Since becoming a mom, saving money on healthy meals has been a huge part of my stay-at-home job. The most effective way I have found to save big is through pairing coupons with great deals at my local store – 10 for $10 sales are my very favorite! Most of these sales, are generally on canned goods which has really challenged me to get creative with the things I make; because making healthy things that my family will actually eat is top of the priority list.
To make sure I’m using up my sale items, I have given myself a goal of creating at least one meal a week with mostly canned pantry items. Generally, I make these meals on Thursday: when my husband works late, and I’m too exhausted after a day with the boys to spend a lot of time cooking!
Good morning to all my friends at Or so she says…
It’s Ruthie from Cooking with Ruthie and I’m so excited to be back again with you today! I love my garden and creating delicious ways to use the veggies that it produces is just so much fun.
Heirloom Tomato Caprese Salad is one of my favorite ways to eat fresh tomatoes.
Well, actually… Caprese anything and I’m all over it! I’m seriously totally in love with that fresh mozzarella and basil- you’ll never get me away from the table 🙂
The only tomatoes that are ripe in my garden so far are the Sunburst variety BUT, I am growing several different varieties of heirloom tomatoes and I just can’t wait for them to ripen up!
Hello everyone! It’s Jana from Double the Deliciousness here to bring you another fabulous recipe!
When it starts warming up and the days start getting longer I only want to eat sandwiches and salads (much to the dismay of my meat & potatoes kind of family). And this, my friends, is one of my favorite go-to salads. My friend told me about this wonderful pear and pecan spring salad. She proceeded to tell me all the ingredients in it and I wasn’t too excited about it, but then she made it…and I tried it… and I was hooked! The sweet and savory of this salad blends perfectly with poppyseed and vinaigrette dressings! Even my kids enjoy it, and that’s saying a lot for a salad! (although 2 of them do pick out the cranberries.:))
So, do me a solid and try this one…don’t judge it before you know it or you’ll be missing out!

A good friend said to me recently that we’re lucky to live in the Midwest, where the weather is always changing, because it keeps us grateful. So true!! There is nothing we Midwesterners appreciate more than a good summer cookout, because we can only have them 3 months out of the year!
I luuurve salads and I’m always making them, especially during the summer. I make this one all the time, but I actually make it with all cauliflower, since broccoli usually does a number on my insides. It takes 5 minutes (if you buy the washed and cut broccoli and pre- cooked bacon from Costco) The…
