Balsamic Dressing & a Salad

It’s been a while! After all the indulging of recent months, sometimes you need vegetables, right?  Never a huge fan of salads, this is one of the exceptions. Anything with avocado pretty much calls my name.  Don’t skip the avocado friends! Hass is life. Balsamic Dressing & a Salad Ingredients Serves 2 2 cups spinach…

Shrimp [almost] Pesto Pasta

So there I was in the kitchen, set on making pasta with shrimp & pesto. I blended up all my ingredients, I spooned it onto my pasta and started to chow down.

Quinoa, Tabbouleh Style

Quinoa is just plain fun to eat. You either like the nutty texture or you don’t. I happen to be a big fan of it. Cold or hot, quinoa makes a great addition to any meal or as a main stay.

Quinoa, Potato, Zucchini, Egg & Kale Salad

I’m the first one to say I dislike salads… I mean, who doesn’t like a heaping a bowl of rice, beans and meat! But I’ve come to love a salad packed with different toppings and flavor. This may seem super complicated but the majority can be made in advance and stored for when you’re ready…
