Kale & Carrot Salad with Candied Walnuts

I feel like kale is such an “in” food right now.  I have no problem eating it, I just haven’t been too excited to buy it and use it.  In an effort to beef up the healthy meals in this house (think, loose that baby weight!) I thought I’d give it a try.  I have […]

Two Easy Summer Sides

Side dishes are my fave.  I’ve been know to fill up a plate with mostly sides and only a little bit of whatever the main course or meat option is.  I mean, I HAVE to try everything, right?  Well, at this is my rationalization, and I’m sticking to it! These two recipes are my summer […]
