Spaghetti Salad

Spaghetti Salad

This salad was a totally new experience for me.  I’ve heard of the likes of using spaghetti squash instead of actual spaghetti but never tried it.  I’ve wanted to but was terrified it would be gross.  Not so.  It is absolutely the bomb!

Grilling Recipes Round Up

It’s summer time!  And while grilling isn’t an activity that can only be done in the summer time, it sure is one of my favorite things to do.  I love experimenting and trying new recipes and spend a fair amount of time scouring the internet (mostly Pinterest and All Recipes)…

Chipotle Guacamole

I’m giving Chipotle a big shout-out today for releasing their guacamole recipe online.  While it’s a pretty basic recipe…which those of us who like to cook know is usually the best…it’s still not all that common for a restaurant to release a recipe they use.  I absolutely love guacamole…really anything…

Watermelon Salad

This summer, we’ve decided to experiment with our salads.  We make a lot of veggie salads and, in some, have added grapes or raisins or craisins to add a touch of sweetness to it but that’s about it, in terms of what you’d think of like fruit.  I say “what…

Chicken and Veggie Bake

This was such an easy dish to prepare and nice for clean eating.  Everything is fresh and natural and oh so good.  I’m going to share what I put in but you can put any veggies in there you want.
