Simple Purple Cabbage and Creamy Avocado Salad 3

You’ll love the crunchy sweetness of purple cabbage and the creaminess of avocado in my Simple Purple Cabbage and Creamy Avocado Salad. I find cabbage to be a bit intimidating and I’m not sure why.  Kohlrabi and daikon radish have had no problems making it to my plate, but that […]

Macro Acorn Squash Bowl with Mila, Massaged Kale and Tahini Sauce

One of the best things in life is meeting new people and experiencing new things.  Last Saturday was one of the most fun and memorable.  My friend Gregg, who has been supplying me the wines for the Wine Down Wednesday posts, and his wife Kerry (I hope that is the correct spelling!) had us over […]

Blast From the Past – Carrot Top Tabbouleh Redo – with Chickpeas!

Kale with Walnut Pesto, Raisins, Pepitas and Pine Nuts

Browsing through my favorite Forks Over Knives companion book, I came across an awesome kale recipe for kale with a walnut sauce.  Super simple and I had everything on hand.  I added some raisins, pine nuts and raw pepitas to add a sweet side to the salty tamari.  Oooo baby…this […]

Winter Potato Salad

Winter Potato Salad

Celebrate Florida winter produce any time of year with this creamy, tender winter potato salad. Growing up in the Northeast was tough.  Especially since my dad kept the heat just high enough to keep the pipes from freezing. At night I slept with five blankets-when I first got in bed it was like diving […]

Crunchy Kale Fattoush

I do believe I have discovered the dressing secret of my favorite salad at Mandaloun Mediterranean.  It is tart, tangy, sweet perfection and I think I figured it out by accident.  On a whim, while at the St Augustine Farmers Market I decided I would make a version of the […]

Peanut Butter, Barley, Apple, Raisin Salad 2

Chewy, peanutty barley mingled with super sweet raisins and crisp apples. Peanut Butter, Barley, Apple, Raisin Salad is like a peanut butter and jelly party in my mouth.
