Party Fruit Salad Recipe

party-fruit-saladThis northern girl is LOVING that the heat of summer is in full swing here in Texas.  One of the things I've been loving about living here is the abundance of fresh produce available all year long and most of it is sold at reasonable prices.

We've been eating our fair share of fresh fruit around here.  We love eating watermelon, peaches, pears, bananas, strawberries..well you get the idea. You know what I don't love though?

Chicken Salad with Apples & Radishes

Amber asked for Chicken Salad the other day for lunch.  "But not just boring chicken salad Mom, make it interesting."  So I did some searches and found a recipe to adapt from on  It seems lighter than a traditional chicken salad due to the sour cream I think, and if you're like some of my readers who think mayo is of the devil, I would think you could substitue the small amount of that with more sour cream also.

Roast Beef Apple Avocado Ramen Noodle Salad + Good Cook Kitchen Tools Giveaway

Phew that's a mouthful of a title for a blog post isn't it?!  I used a roast beef and rice noodle salad recipe from Woman's Day as inspiration for it, but felt that the apples and avocados were as much a piece of the whole dish as the meat and noodles were, and thus a very long winded (much like this sentence!) recipe title it became.

Marinated Slaw Recipe

Hard to believe it's July 4th already, isn't it?!  This is one of my favorite days of the year.  But this year it will be bittersweet. 

For the past number of years now we've celebrated the 4th with Amber's best friend's family...whose mom also happens to be my bestie as well.  We hang out, the girls do their thing, we eat, we eat some more, then we eat s'mores, and then her husband puts on a fireworks show for us all.

Penelope's Delicious and Low Fat Potato Salad

We are super healthy around here, from what we eat to how we live, so I've never a big fan of traditional potato salads that include mayo or heavy dairy products (too fattening and not everyone can eat them).
