Hot Dog Grilled Cheese

Who doesn’t love a good grilled cheese?  I know I do!  My children do too.  So does KB.  He’s really into this grilled cheese restaurant that opened a location near us.  The other location is about 30 minutes away but this one is about 7 minutes, which may prove to be dangerous.  I mean it’s


Cheesy Mushroom Toast

I wouldn’t say I’m obsessed with avocado toast.  Trust me I’ve had it and you won’t hear me complaining. There’s something very comforting about toast…the ultimate carbohydrate as a vehicle for deliciousness.  And I always make toast with real butter.  Real, salted, butter.  Absolutely nothing wrong with that.  A crispy piece of bread slathered with


Lobstah Grilled Cheese

When I lived in CT I could get lobster any time I wanted.  It was one of the top 3 reasons I liked living in CT. I could get a lobster roll year round.  Of course they tasted better in the summer, when we were outside, sitting near the water.  But any time there was


Barbecue Chicken Quinoa Salad

It’s officially summertime.  It took me a while to say it, since mid-June it still wasn’t as hot here as I imagine summer in Ohio to be.  This is really my second summer in Ohio.  And I don’t even mind the heat.  I’d insert some witty comment here about how at least I’m not in


Reuben Quesadilla

So about once a year (literally), I make corned beef.   I could probably do it more often with no complaints from the family, but let’s face it, it’s not something you can eat daily (although I am sure there are some people that eat it frequently).  I’m a firm believer that anything in moderation


BLT Chicken Salad Sandwich

Chicken salad sandwiches are very versatile.  You can add whatever you want, flavor them however you want, and who doesn’t love a good chicken salad sandwich?  I normally don’t order them when I go out to lunch though because you never know how much mayonnaise the restaurant has added to their chicken salad.  I don’t


BLT Chicken Salad Sandwich

Is there a such a thing as a bacon support group?   I could eat bacon every day.  Granted, I know it wouldn’t be too good for me, but I still can’t resist.  Especially when I’m having a challenging day.  Between work and the tiny humans, let’s face it…sometimes a girl just needs her bacon.


Ranch Avocado Chicken Salad Wrap

Lunch time has become the quietest time of my day.  I know all that will change once summer vacation rolls around, but for now I use it to my advantage to exercise, run errands, clean house, shower, play catch up at work…and not necessarily in that order! Everything always gets done eventually.  And if it


Cilantro-Lime Quinoa Salad

I’ve been on a big quinoa kick lately.  To me it’s one of the most versatile complex carbohydrates.  And also a pretty easy side dish to make. I like the fact that you can add anything you want to it and it’s kind of hard to screw up; you can flavor it however you want


Avocado Caprese Salad

By now everyone knows I have a love affair with caprese salad.  What’s not to love?  Fresh tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, basil…yum! It’s no secret that if there’s a caprese salad on the menu when KB and I are out, we get one.  There’s just something about the combination of those ingredients that is satisfying.  The
