I created this recipe for Avocado Salad with Zesty Tomato Cilantro Drizzle for my client Old El Paso, as a pairing for their new frozen Old El Paso Shredded Beef Enchiladas. All opinions are my own. A year ago, I curled up on our couch and convinced my kids that it would be way better to […]

Lobster salad, anyone? Sure, this isn’t your standard lobster salad — but maybe it’s time to think outside the shell with avocado, red peppers and feta cheese. A tangy lemon vinaigrette brings the flavors together in an unforgettable summer salad. But first let’s talk lobster. Whenever we pass the lobster tanks at our local grocery […]

Note: This recipe is part of a sponsored series created for Fiber One. With strawberry season arriving in the northeast, I am thinking of all the ways I will use strawberries this season. Typically, I make jam, freeze some, make lemonade, eat a lot and slice some into salads. Strawberries have always been my favorite […]

Note: This recipe is part of a sponsored series created for Fiber One. I. Love. Fruit salad. Love it. And in the summer, I will often trade a green salad for a fruit salad with dinner — something that my husband thinks is a little odd, but that my kids enjoy. Fruit salad is also […]

When I saw these portabella mushrooms at a local grocery store, I swooned and my head filled with images of meaty roasted portabellas on a salad. Everything else I had imagined cooking vanished (I had really planned to stuff mushrooms with St. Patrick’s Day leftovers). I just wanted my warm portabellas and cool salad. We’re […]

There is so much good all around us, if we only take the time to see it. Goodness is bright and beautiful. It fills us up and reminds us that we aren’t alone. That’s such an important thing. Good was in the Christmas cards that arrived, sharing the kindest of well wishes in the aftermath […]

Paige’s blondish-brownish hair swung below her knitted cap as she climbed the stairs to her school bus today, heading off to kindergarten. She sunk onto the first seat, sliding to the window and looking out at me with her big brown eyes. Immediately, her little hand rose  and started waving. I did the same, wearing […]

Summer might have another month to go, but for us it’s sort of over. School starts this week, and that means a return to early mornings, structured days, packing school lunch and snacks and all that comes along with it. I’m going to miss the more relaxed days of summer … but I am also […]

With the risk of sounding a little tomato obsessed, there is a tomato salad that I just had to share with you. I’ve been making this constantly this summer — it’s my new go-to side dish. But you should also know that it’s crazy simple to make. So simple that I feel a little funny […]

Whenever I am unsure of anything, I’m totally guilty of thinking about it a lot (read: overthink and analyze to death). And frankly, the past few years have given me a lot to think about. The good news? I can handle it better now. As I have gotten older, I have found solace in making lists […]
