Bulgur and kale join together with corn, bacon, dill and sunflower seeds to make a scrumptious side dish that can be served hot or cold. It’s hearty enough to be a meal on its own, or you can serve it along side pork or chicken. I made this last summer with some of the gorgeous […]

Chicken salad with a kick! Stirring in some buffalo chicken sauce give this crunchy chicken salad that buffalo hot wings taste, without all the fat and extra calories.

So we got back from vacation last night after a long long 14-hour drive.

Is that bread … green? Yes. Yes, it is. I know it might look a little odd, but I wanted to try making a green bread for St. Patrick’s Day. Well, the color of the bread after it’s cooked isn’t quite as bright green as I might like, but it is still green. More importantly, […]

Homemade Maple Cranberry Pecan- Granola

I have long been fascinated with the idea of making my own granola. I don’t know why it took me so long to actually DO it. Suddenly several of my foodie friends are talking about it, so perhaps it was the power of suggestion? I don’t know. I just know that last week I suddenly […]
