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


Caprese Avocado Toast

I love caprese salad.  Especially in the summer.  Fresh tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, basil, olive oil, balsamic vinegar…what’s not to love?  When KB and I go out for Italian food and it’s on the menu, we normally order it.  I have a confession: sometimes I make it even when the ingredients aren’t in season.  It still


Curried Salmon Salad Sandwich

There’s something about curry that is kind of addictive.   I mean sure, there are people who probably don’t care for curry.  I am not one of those people.  Neither is KB.   That man will sprinkle the spicy curry powder on anything.  True story: one day I made beef and broccoli (a kind of


Spicy Grilled Ahi Tuna Salad Sandwich

Remember how I went on that grilled cheese bender a little while ago?  When I was making my Ahi tuna poke bowls, I had an extra piece of Ahi tuna.  Now I’ve never been one to waste a good piece of tuna, so I decided to make a tuna salad with my extra piece.  I


Buffalo Chicken Salad Wrap

Lunch time is always the bane of my existence.  I know it shouldn’t be since I work from home, but since LJB is usually with me, it becomes a challenge.  I’ve fallen into the habit of lunch out with a friend a lot more than I probably should, because it’s easier, I know he’ll eat


BLT Grilled Cheese

Remember how I went on a grilled cheese bender a few months ago?  I mean, can you blame a girl?  Carbs…cheese…what’s not to love about a grilled cheese?  So the other day I saw a picture/video of a BLT grilled cheese which made me drool…which meant (of course) I had to make one.  I didn’t


Spicy Avocado Toast

Toast is all the rage now-a-days.  Personally, I like toast because there’s carbs involved.  And deliciousness.  If that’s really a word. Toast is a good excuse to use carbs as a vehicle for what you really want to eat.  In a creative way.  You can pretty much make toast any way you want, it’s up


Marinated Tofu Stir Fry

I had a random hunk of tofu in my refrigerator.  I know I bought it for a certain recipe I wanted to make, but I forgot what it was. I’m crazy like that.  I buy things and then I forget what I bought them for.  It makes for a very random menu sometimes.  Anyways, there


Caprese Salad

I love caprese salad.  I think it’s because it looks beautiful and tastes amazing.  It’s that one dish that I order in an Italian restaurant and pay an arm and a leg for, but I never think to make it at home.  It’s super easy because it only has a handful of ingredients.  And if
