From first bite, I’ve always been a kale-lover, but that might be because the first time I had it I was an adult. (My mom has a serious dislike of all leafy greens so she literally never made them – not once! – for my sister and I growing up. But don’t worry, we weren’t veggie-deprived! She was still of the strict belief that every meal should include a vegetable.) (more…)

Thank you to Tyson Foods for sponsoring this post. I am happy for the opportunity to share brands that I believe in with my readers, and I hope you enjoy my recipe for Apple, Onion, and Thyme Marinated Chicken Salad with Toasted Pecans.
I admit Mike is without a doubt the grillmaster in our house.
He’s very particular about the grilling process and basically has it down to a science. Which is why it was really strange when one day when I grilled (for like the second time, ever), he asked me how I made the chicken taste so good.

“You want to make potato salad again?”, Mike asked me one day.
We were headed to a potluck pool party later that day and he was apparently sick of potato salad. (I can’t blame him though; I brought our favorite potato salad to three different parties in the past month! Truth be told, I’m a little sick of potato salad too.) (more…)

So it’s almost 5 o’clock on a random weekday afternoon. Your bestie sends you an email saying she has the evening free, and she wants to pop by for a visit around 7.
Your fridge is empty (ironically, tonight was going to be grocery shopping night), and you scramble to think about what you can pick up for a quick, easy, and delicious dinner.
I have you covered with this lovely dish. (more…)

Most of us go through phases…
For example, I’ll go through the same routine for months, and then suddenly wake up one day and decide I want to completely switch up my workout program, rearrange the bedroom furniture, and – you know what else? – have broiled fish with roasted vegetables for breakfast. (Yeah, weird.) (more…)

Oh bloody hell!, I told my niece after told me she was in the mood for tacos again. (What is it with kids and tacos?)
And then I realized that our Harry Potter movie marathon had gone on for far too long, as evidenced by me using Ron’s catch phrase again. (more…)

Out of all my childhood memories, I remember summer vacation most vividly…those memories seem to be brighter, louder, and definitely more full of delicious smells and tastes. (more…)
