Pangea Nutrition’s Modern Mediterranean Diet Delivery Meal Kit

I have come to love delivered, prepare-at-home meal kits because they are easy to make and come with the exact ingredients and amounts you need. Yet, since summer is here I was searching for one that was healthy, somewhat dietary as well as tasty. That can be a tall order. So I just tried the Pangea Modern Mediterranean Diet and I have to say, I’m rather hooked.

Recipe: Easy To Make Apple Cake With Caramel Sauce

Want to be the hit of every party or dinner you are invited to? Make this cake and I promise…mission accomplished! I first tried this cake after my Dad had died. I had no appetite and people kept dropping food off at my mom’s house. One of my mom’s friends made this cake and I was told I had to try it. I did and could not stop eating it! It’s that good. In fact, I think it was all I ate for 2 days.

Kid Friendly Organic Chicken Burgers – Buffalo Style

My eldest son is the world’s pickiest eater. Yes, I know it’s a control thing – and it works. He eats about 5 foods at any given time and of course, he loves snacks. So on one of the kids’ more recent days off from school (do they ever go to school?) I took them to our local farmer’s market. They sampled some organic chicken burgers and Liam flipped over the Buffalo chicken wing flavored one. Woot! So I paid $20 for 12 patties and he ate them all within 2 weeks!

Tropical Summer Recipe: Salmon and Pineapple Salsa

Salmon and Pineapple Salsa is a delicious and beautiful summertime dish, fit for a special occasion or just to impress your family plus it’s really easy to make. I’m not much of a chef so trust me…if I can make it, anyone can! I even goofed up a few things. For example, I don’t own potato peeler for the cucumber ribbons, so I improvised. (No one would know and maybe you wouldn’t notice if didn’t point that out!) Luckily this recipe does not have to be made perfectly. The flavors are amazingly favorable, with a mix of sweet, tangy, salty and a little kick of chili pepper.
