You guys, it’s almost laughable how long it takes me to come up with names for my recipes. And mind you, it involves ZERO research. Yeah, pathetic. I don’t look up SEO or anything. I just go with old-school brainstorming. Saying stuff out loud until I like it. Hilarious. And I think this name works for this salad. West Coast Cobb Salad. Rolls off the tongue, right? 🙂 But it truly was inspired by love of the good old Pacific Northwest. Read on for more details!
Listen, things are busy around here, so I’m not going to write a long-winded post. For some reason I feel you’re not sad about that. And honestly, I’m cool with that. I simply want to bring you this awesome recipe so that you have it in time for the holidays. So here it is, my recipe Easy Roasted Root Vegetables!
When I tell people how much I love legumes, they look at me like I have a third eye. I’m pretty sure that I don’t, so I can’t figure out what the funny looks are for. I mean, is it so crazy to love legumes? I sure don’t think so and I’m about to tell you why. And not only that, I’m going to share a pretty darn delicious recipe for Red Lentil Dal. Read on, friends!
Does that exclamation sound familiar? It sure does to me. When I pick up my little sous chef from school, I’m always met with those two words. Luckily, we both love a delicious, nourishing snack. And the effort in making that nourishing snack is worth it, because snacking can be a great way for your kids to get more nutrition while keeping them happy and satisfied until their next meal. Today I’ve partnered with Simple Mills for this post all about making snack time meaningful and I’m sharing a recipe for my Avocado Watermelon Cracker Snackers.
What do you usually have for breakfast? Do crush hard on cereal and oatmeal or are you more an eggs and bacon kind of a person? Well, I personally show no bias when it comes to breakfast! But these days, I’m really craving the savory stuff! Bring on the fried eggs! But those savory dishes needed something new, so how about a sauce? Yup. How about Spinach Cashew Pesto? Um, YES!!! Ok, well I’ve got the recipe here for you!
I’m not going to lie to you, I do buy my salad dressing. There just happen to be a few that I really like and so I keep them on hand. But, I will tell you this, I REALLY like homemade salad dressing. I sure do and right now I’m really loving this Creamy Cilantro Lime Salad Dressing.
If I could be a food, I would be a taco. I would, I really would. Tacos bring so much joy into this world and I would want to be part of that joy. Think about it, have you ever felt mad or sad after eating a taco? No! Just pure joy and happiness. What a life! I make a lot of tacos, and right now I’m loving them veggie style and loaded with beans. And right now these Cumin Chickpea Tacos make me really happy!
Does your family love pasta? I have 2 big pasta lovers in my household. And I grew up with a brother who could’ve probably housed an entire pound of spaghetti all by himself. Me? Not so much. Sure, I like pasta, but it’s not up there on my favorite foods list. So how do I fulfill my family’s pasta needs? I compromise with pasta salad!
