Is it too early in the week for a salad? What if it has cashews in it? And the dressing has cashew butter in it? Still too early? I’d been on the phone with my sister the other day after a birthday lunch date she had with my mom. “What did you eat?” I demand. […]

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to ride on the wings of a Bald Eagle through the majestic mountains of Yosemite at the break of a crisp spring dawn? Oh gosh me either, are you kidding? I’m so not a risk taker. But I can imagine that eating this Tex-Mex Chicken Quinoa salad comes […]
