Spinach, Broccoli + Farro Salad

SONY DSCGood day, friends!  I hope your weekend was what a long-Thanksgiving weekend should be…relaxing, fun and yummy-food-filled!  And now, back to the grind.  But let me tell you, this salad is a mighty fine way to start that grind.

If we are Instagram buddies you may have seen my recent obsession with the Kale + Broccoli Salad from Lunds and Byerlys, a local grocer around these parts.  And you guys, the obsession is legit.  LE-GIT.  You know I’m a sucker for super-grain farro to begin with, especially in salad form.   But besides my beloved farro, this salad just has gobs of goodies in it:  kale, broccoli, parmesan, apricots, sun dried tomatoes.  Weird combo, no?  No!  You wont believe what that flavor/texture hodge podge does…it will knock your socks off!  Continue reading

Spinach and Pancetta Salad with Fried Egg

SONY DSCThis salad has been happening since my husband and I were dating.  It very well could be the reason he asked me to marry him.  And if it is, I am totally okay with that.  I will keep feeding him this for better or worse, as long as we both shall live.  Of course, as long as he shares with me.   Continue reading

Well now if this doesn’t scream my husbands name, I’m not sure what does.  This, right here, is one of his very favorite meals…and I have to admit, he has pretty darn good taste.

Lets just start this party immediately, guys.  There’s a lot of celebrating to do, no sense in wasting anyones time.

First, we’ve got grilled bread.  No, wait.  Glazed with olive oil, grilled, crunchy on the outside slightly crisp on the inside bread.  And you know, I don’t eat much bread on the regular.  But this bread right here?  ALWAYS an exception for this girl.  Continue reading

B.B.T Lettuce Wraps

SONY DSCMonday Monday.  Give me allllll the coffee today, friends.  You feeling it too?  Some Mondays I am so ready to rock into the week…this Monday, totally ready to rock myself back to sleep.  Perfect day for a hardly-a-recipe recipe, no?!

B.B.T Lettuce Wraps.  Bacon Bleu Tomato Lettuce Wraps.  Because you know what?  Sometimes I don’t really feel like cooking.  And sometimes, even though I don’t feel like cooking, I still feel like eating something yummy.

Greens, Bleu + Peach Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette

Peaches are popping up all over the place these days, guys.  And man are they tasting amazing.  We can’t get enough.

This has sort of been the ‘house salad’ going on in our home lately.  It pairs with everything as an amazing side dish.  But really…I prefer it alone, all by it’s pretty little self, as the perfect meal.   Continue reading

It’s {nearly} the weekend!  Hurrah!  And I couldn’t think of a better way to send you off than with a recipe that’s great for making on Sundays to gobble up throughout the week…Curry Chicken Salad Lettuce Boats.

I love having something like this in the fridge during the week for quick lunches and it’s such a nice switch from my staple Roasted Chicken Salad I love so much.  Having it prepared at the beginning of the week is such a life-saver come lunchtime for me.   Continue reading
