Israeli Veggie Salad

Israeli Veggie Salad is a bright and colorful salad full of fresh veggies like bell peppers, cucumbers and tomatoes with a light olive oil and lemon dressing. It pairs perfectly with any type of protein or grain to make a complete meal. I am forever on the hunt to find […]

Fried Chicken BLT #FoodieExtravaganza

Fried Chicken BLT is a take on the classic bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich but topped with a piece of crispy fried chicken and your favorite sauce. I cannot believe that it is April already. This year is really flying by and I’m barely keeping up with all of the […]

Even though there is an abundance of vegetables available all summer, I always feel like I’m struggling to come up with side dishes to have. This is mainly because my husband doesn’t like 99% of vegetables. He’d be completely content to eat corn on the cob all summer and I […]
