Mexican Street Corn Salad

Mexican Street Corn Salad recipe

Maybe it’s the thought of warm weather as our family prepares to head to Arizona for Spring Training, or maybe it’s the fact that I haven’t started packing yet and needed another excuse to procrastinate, but yesterday I decided that I MUST have Mexican Street Corn NOW. Obviously it’s February and I’m in Texas, far from fresh corn season, but dang it, I was determined to eat some charred corn…

Roasted Sweet Potato Salad

So we moved to Texas. And it feels weird. But good. Especially being around family. Last week we grilled out at my sister’s house. She lives on a canal and has the most amazing game collection. The kids challenged each other to Mrs. Pac-Man while Jeff and I faced off in Super Mario Brothers on the original Nintendo. (I won.) My dad grilled burgers and I was in charge of…

Quinoa Caprese Salad

The shifting schedule of baseball season make it easy to get lazy in the kitchen. If I’m not careful, I can easily snack my way through the days and rarely sit down to a real meal. That’s why I love making cold salads like this one. I can throw it together one afternoon, then eat it for the next few days. This salad is the perfect mix of summer flavors…

Asian Tuna Salad (No Mayo!)

It has been 24 hours since prepping my little heart out, and I am like a kid in a candy store. What salad should I eat first? How about a nibble or two from the sliced veggie box? Maybe a chicken sandwich? It’s like my kitchen has been transformed into a restaurant take-away cooler. It’s so fun! Today for lunch I decided on the Asian Tuna Salad. Served up in lettuce…

Beet Salad with Quinoa, Swiss Chard, and Avocado

This post brought to you by Love Beets. All opinions are 100% mine. We love beets around here. In fact, Joe asks for them almost every night. And although we grow a ton of beets in our garden, taking the time to cook them before dinner doesn’t always happen. That’s why I am in love with the new Love Beets product. Not only are they already cooked (Yay!), but they…
