Tomato Avocado Spinach Salad w/ Lemon Basil Vinaigrette

Here in Okla­homa, we are in that sea­son­al blur between sum­mer and fall, some days feel just like mid-July and oth­er days whis­per of change with gray over­cast skies and cool breezes. Yes, it’s time for some­thing a lit­tle dif­fer­ent but while while sum­mer keeps hang­ing on, I feel the urgency to make the most of summer’s pro­duce. This sal­ad is a blend of fresh sum­mer good­ness and still per­fect­ly points to fall’s hearty, com­fort­ing, fla­vor-packed sides. Con­tin­ue read­ing

4-Ingredient Frito “Salad”

I admit, there may be a lib­er­ty tak­en in the name of this recipe — but we’ll get to that in a minute. First, let me just say “WHEW”. Is it that time of year or what?! I hon­est­ly don’t think I have cooked a meal in 10 days, maybe even all month. Truth­ful­ly, I can­not remem­ber the last time I made din­ner. Con­tin­ue read­ing

BLT on a stick with Homemade Buttermilk Herbed Dressing

BLT — it is my most favorite sand­wich. Toast­ed white bread, a smear of mayo, thick cut salty bacon, crisp ice­berg & a juicy slab of ripe, juicy sum­mer toma­to.  I am just not sure it can get any bet­ter. That is why I was so excit­ed to try this idea ((found on PINTEREST)). It was the per­fect addi­tion to the wed­ding show­er tasties I served over the week­end!

Mom’s Simple Cranberry Salad

Well, mom told me it came from Laura’s mom — but since Laura’s mom is a mom and the cran­ber­ry sal­ad is so very sim­ple, I will still call it “Mom’s Sim­ple Cran­ber­ry Sal­ad”. But what you real­ly need to know, besides it’s sim­plic­i­ty and mom ori­gins, is that is tastes REALLY good! And — I bet at least one ingre­di­ent will sur­prise you!

Mustard Dressed Radish & Cilantro Slaw

On this week’s menu, I made one of my busy night “go-to slow cook­er recipes”: Cur­ry Beef and But­ter­nut Squash!! It is a meal that ((sur­pris­ing­ly)) pleas­es every­one & is so easy to make. Some­how, I man­aged to find a few spare sec­onds in the hus­tle of my day and decid­ed it was time to do some­thing with the beau­ti­ful radish­es I found at Whole Foods.

Nectarines + Lemon = Sunshine Salad

Is it real­ly nec­tarine sea­son??  I thought nec­tarines were a sum­mer fruit?? Our Okla­homa Spring has last­ed longer than any I can remem­ber ((YAY!!)). As a mat­ter of fact, our Win­ter was crazy long too ((Yippee!!)). So, my mind just can’t com­pre­hend that Sum­mer is around the cor­ner. But, my taste buds love nec­tarines in any sea­son!

Lime Cilantro & Jalapeño Salad ((serve with curry…if you please))

I recent­ly invent­ed the wheel. It was hard but some­body had to do it…Life will be so much brighter & sim­pler for all of human­i­ty. Okay, as you know, I did no such thing — but even three days lat­er, I am still beam­ing about the recipe I cre­at­ed: Thai But­ter­milk Cur­ry & Apri­cot Glazed Grilled Flap Steak. It came from a com­bi­na­tion of no time & neces­si­ty. Con­tin­ue read­ing
