Baby Spinach Salad with Peaches and Pecans
Refreshing, yet filling. This summer salad will surely delight your taste buds. Pair it with the Poppy Seed Dressing and Enjoy!
Sauté of Collards and Kale
A quick saute of these two is a lighter way to enjoy typical fall greens in the summer. Most people are used to Collards being cooked until they are drab, lifeless, and flavored with ham or Kale that tastes "too healthy". Try this simple recipe... it might just change your mind.

"The One" Scone
A recipe you will love!
Always use the highest quality ingredients you can get your hands on, it makes a difference!

Summer Tomato and Brie Strata
With summer winding down it's the perfect time to enjoy those last tomatoes of the season.

Thai Chicken Wraps

White Bean, Kale & Herb Chicken Sausage Soup
This is a soup that eats like a meal but get your veggies in!
As you wait for your bowl of soup to cool, toss torn leaves of radicchio and butter lettuces in a bowl with few drops fresh lemon juice, a dash of olive oil, pinch of sea salt & a couple cranks of fresh pepper and Enjoy.
Break off a piece of crusty French bread as you'll want to enjoy every drop of this healthy meal.
How to make a beautiful roaster ... one that can be turned into other meals throughout the week.
One of my FAVORITE adaptions is to roast this bird on a bed of BRUSSEL SPROUTS! OMG delish
To brine or not to brine your bird? Brine! A simple brine recipe is 1 cup kosher salt to 1 gallon of water.
Caramelized Onion and Cornmeal Stuffing with Sausage and Sage
This stuffing goes great with the Roast Chicken and can be made gluten-free and lactose-free.
Ricotta and Herb Stuffed Chicken
A butterfled chicken that can be grilled or baked.
Serve this on a generous salad of hearts of romaine and Bibb lettuces tossed with drizzled with fresh lemon juice, olive oil, sea salt (or kosher) and fresh pepper. The chicken will slightly wilt the greens and add flavor for an amazing dish!
Or pan char some fresh broccoli spears to pair. Or both!
