Caprese Salad Grilled Cheese

I have this bad habit of adding too much garlic to the pesto.  It ends up being this process that much resembles when one (me) cuts her own bangs.  Too much trimmed from the left side (too much garlic) causes a bit more to be taken (more basil, walnuts, cheese, and olive oil added) offContinue reading “Caprese Salad Grilled Cheese”

Farro, Cheddar, Walnut, and Apple Salad – A Virtual Salad Party

Wanna know a secret?  I adore salads.  I will swap out a side of fries for a side salad 98% of the time, especially if the eatery has chunky blue cheese dressing or their side salad is made with mixed greens and topped with egg.  I am that person.  I will undoubtedly talk you intoContinue reading “Farro, Cheddar, Walnut, and Apple Salad – A Virtual Salad Party”

Asparagus and Shrimp Stir Fry w/ Farro

Morning shows are not generally my thing…unless we are talking Sportscenter – then I am totally game.  As a female, I feel the need to explain this habit.  You see, I grew up with brothers…therefore, mornings were comprised of Frosted Flakes and SportsCenter and after 18+ years of this ‘torture’, don’t ya know I foundContinue reading “Asparagus and Shrimp Stir Fry w/ Farro”

Roasted Vegetable and Caramelized Onion Farro Salad

I stood at my kitchen sink yesterday, elbow deep in hot sudsy dish water, cleaning the dishes that couldn’t be stuffed into the dish washer, no matter the configuration of the other dishes already piled in there.  I had just turned the dish washer on and it was rumbling along and I was above itContinue reading “Roasted Vegetable and Caramelized Onion Farro Salad”

I added Boyz II Men station to my Pandora last night.  It is a-w-e-s-o-m-e.  I love Boyz II Men.  So do you…don’t lie.  Lying to yourself isn’t healthy.  Just admit you love Boyz II Men.  There, feel better?  I knew you would.  🙂  I don’t know why it took me so long to add Boyz II Men. Continue reading “Broccoli and Snap Pea Quinoa Salad with Goat Cheese”

You know what’s scary?  Hummingbirds.  Yeah, those little birds whose wings never stop beating and they beat at like a million miles a second.   That little thing scared the bejesus outta me.  Alfred Hitchcock like.
