    Easy Wedge Salad with Homemade Blue Cheese Dressing

    I love a simple wedge salad.  Although I do not eat this type of salad regularly, it does add a nice, special touch. (Kind of like going out to eat…you like something a little more different than what you normally eat on a regular basis.) This hearty salad can serve as a satisfying light main course on its own – or it can be paired with a simple chicken dish, such as Oven-Roasted Chicken Drumsticks with Roasted Root Vegetables, or  instead of roasted vegetables you could add a simple side dish of streamed broccoli for a more well-rounded meal.

    A Simple Salmon Salad and Our Story of How We Fell in Love with the Beautiful Fish

    Our Story of How We Fell in Love with the Beautiful Fish My hubby and I LOVE salmon.  We first got hooked when we were newlyweds, who loved to gorge ourselves at Golden Corral. Wow, those were the days of misery, because I always spouted off to my hubby, “Eat up! You’ve got to get your money’s worth!” In pain, we’d slowly stroll away after our meal, gently climb into the car, our bellies aching from our over indulgence of an abundant meal.

    Broccoli Bacon Salad Recipe – And Story of My First Encounter with Broccoli

    “In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” ~ I Thessalonians 5:18 I have a passion for broccoli… I remember the first time I experienced the green flowery vegetable… In 5th grade, the school cafeteria ladies placed a nice, generous spoonful of green stuff on my lunch tray.  Peering at it in cooked form, I wondered what it would offer my taste buds? At my seat, I finally tasted the new addition to my lunch tray.  I wasn’t pleased.  I mustered up enough strength to eat about three bites.  So as not to offend the lunch cafeteria ladies, I squeeeeeeeeezed my…

    Curried Egg Salad Recipe – No Mayo!

    Last Friday for lunch I tried this new recipe for Curried Egg Salad — It was gratifying (especially since I’ve always had a weakness for eggs) and it was certainly nice knowing that I was eating something “healthy” for lunch. I love “spicy“ stuff  — “A little bite makes every bite worthwhile, I say.” 😉 — so I can see adding a splash or two of my favorite hot sauce in there…perhaps even some chicken chunks for a heartier meal….with a pickle or other veggies on the side. If you’re eating gluten-free, this can certainly be eaten as-is without the bread…  I tried that, too.  After all, someone had to…
