Easy & Delicious Lemon Spinach Lentil Soup Recipe

Come winter there is nothing that warms me better than soup. I can’t get enough. I will buy soups but I prefer to make them myself so I know exactly what ingredients are being used. Even though this lemon and spinach lentil soup is vegan, I am not, but I know many who are so I find myself making this soup quite a bit.

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.

Lifestyle: Stop And Smell The Rosè

Sure, there will always be red and white wines but you can easily come back to those. Whenever you feel like champagne just might be a little too fancy for the occasion, there’s the one that always looks beautiful, smells like summer no matter what time of year, and tastes amazing. It’s the flowery, pink-y hued libation – rosè! And it’s everywhere this summer.

Grilled Corn & Avocado Summer Salad: Our Tweaked Recipe

Joan has been my BFF since we were tots and we share many interests, including our love of food and recipes. She gave me this one which she found on Facebook and tweaked it a bit – that’s what we do. Joan can make a meal out of virtually anything. She used to do it constantly at my house when we were teens. My mom only kept WASA crackers (we called them WASPY crackers), tuna in water, and Peter Pan peanut butter in our house. Nothing really had calories, fat or taste. Joan could assess the contents in the cabinet in 2 minutes and whip up something tasty to eat. It was truly amazing. I learned to cook later, but still confer with Joan on recipes all the time!

Anyway, this grilled corn and avocado salad makes the perfect side dish or add shrimp or chicken to make it a luncheon course. It’s the perfect summer salad.

Simply Addicted To Simply Gum

I LOVE GUM! Gum is a treat for me. My husband hates it so I don’t chew it around him, but when I’m hungry I usually grab a piece of my beloved Trident Layers gum (have you tried the Swedish Fish flavor yet?) so I can stave off eating something bad for me.

I have been making this delicious fall-off-the-bone barbecue beef short ribs recipe for years. However, it had been a long time since I had taken out the crock pot.

Happy National Popcorn Day!

Yes, it’s true…January 19 is National Popcorn Day. It’s one of my favorite snacks I must admit (Chicago mix anyone?). So I’m thrilled there is a day dedicated to the popped kernel. Instead of plain, butter, or cheese…why not branch out?   The Popcorn Factory has some insanely good and unusual popcorn to try. My favorites are the Cornfusion (regular,…
