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

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!

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
