Maria’s Italian Cobb Salad with Simple Parmesan Dressing

My dear friend Maria is also a food blogger. We talk probably every day by texting and Facebook, or the phone. There’s always something to talk about. Her blog is called Maria’s Mixing Bowl. She has delicious recipes and now she shares lots of delicious and great recipes from other great bloggers too, including ours!!  This salad recipe I’m sharing with you is just a really simple one she quickly made tonight for her and her hubby Rob. It’s not fancy and she took the pic with her phone. She sent it to me because I told her I wanted to share it on my blog  since she doesn’t really share her own recipes lately. Her dressing is so simple to make and oh wow, it’s so good! I made it tonight and it’s ready for tomorrow nights dinner salad. Throw whatever you have in the fridge in your salad like Maria did and enjoy! Read the rest of this entry »

Arugula Pecan Salad with Simple Balsamic Dressing

If you have never tried arugula you must! It’s delicate lettuce leaf with a slightly bitter, slightly sweet taste. That’s the best way to describe it. At least for me. It’s a great base for any salad. This salad was really easy to throw together since I grabbed leftover veggies from the fridge and tossed them on top of the packaged arugula. Make one up soon along with the simple, tasty dressing.

Southern Honey Raspberry Iced Tea

When I lived in Atlanta many years ago, I was invited to a friends house for lunch. She served the most refreshing iced tea I had ever had. It was sweet but not too sweet and I knew it didn’t just taste like sugar sweetened. Once she told me what was in the tea, I tasted the honey and asked her for the recipe. Now, I make this regularly and if raspberries are not in season, I use frozen ones. Which, by the way, work even better. You will need less ice. This recipe is so easy to prepare and so refreshingly delightful. Enjoy anytime of year, especially on a warm day. Adjust the honey to your sweet liking. There are many types of honey out there that will give the tea a nice flavor, I highlighted the one I used for this recipe.

Giant Grab & Go Paleo Breakfast Cookies

You know those days when rushing and there’s really no time for sitting down to breakfast but, you still want something that’s nourishing and  delicious. This cookie is it. It’s not only Paleo, it’s vegan too. The recipe is easy to prepare. What I do is one night a week or on the weekend, I bake a batch. Wrap them individually in wax paper or freezer paper then freeze in a Ziploc bag. In the morning, I just grab one and go. By the time I get to the car, it’s softened up and ready for my coffee. However, they do taste really good frozen too. If you have a few seconds, microwave them for yeah, just a few seconds for a warm cookie. These are not your typical oatmeal cookie. They’re Paleo, so no grains or refined sugar in this cookie, all healthy goodness. Bake a batch soon, you and your loved ones will be so happy you did.

Amazing Paleo “Nutella”

I always joke and say Nutella should be a food group. That’s how much I love it. There have been many times I’ve been caught with a spoon in the jar. What’s not to love? Hazelnuts and chocolate and lots of sugar. Well, the first two ingredients are fine but, the sugar we could do without. If you have been on our blog before, we do have really delicious homemade Nutella recipe that’s really low fat and has much less sugar than the original. Check it out here… Homemade Nutella recipe.

Now, on to this recipe. For some of us that want a really clean recipe with no added sugar or dairy. This one is for you. Tastes so decadent yet, it’s made with all healthy ingredients you won’t believe your taste buds.  Try this simple recipe today.

No Cook Overnight Oats and Greek Yogurt Parfait with Berries

This is my new go-to breakfast lately. My kids and husband really enjoy it as well. I prepare a few at night, then in the morning we all can grab one and take with us or sit and relax while enjoying this hearty yet light breakfast. It’s got all you need for a strong, healthy start to your day. The yogurt gives a great boost of protein while the oats and fruits give you healthy carbs and energy. Add in things you know your family will like.  Sometimes I add granola in the morning so it stays crunchy. Also, dried fruit is tasty and gives a nice chew. We even enjoy this for lunch some days when in a rush or for a healthy, nutritious snack. See and taste for yourself.

Tasty & Juicy All White Meat Turkey Burgers

Burgers are my sons favorite meal. He can eat them for breakfast that’s how much he likes them. He has as a matter of fact. whenever there is a leftover of any burger or meatloaf in the house from the night before, that’s what he wants for breakfast the next day. Anyway, that’s what got me to try to make a great turkey burger. The one thing that I thought might be a problem was going to be using all white meat turkey. You are probably thinking why not use the mixed turkey meat. Well, the reason I didn’t want to use that is because the fat content is just way up there. I would rather use the all white meat turkey and add a healthy fat instead. So, that’s what I did along with other really good ingredients for the most delicious and juicy burger. White meat turkey is very bland so it needs lots of seasonings. It does not have to be spicy just tasty.  A must to make at home for your family, my whole family loved these and my son gave me the thumbs up and said it was fantastic! Thanks Josh!
