Ask, and you shall receive. Did I tell you we make a version of this EVERYSINGLEMONDAY? We make a version of this everysinglemonday. Sometimes Aaron coats the chicken with mustard and panko and bakes it. Sometimes we simply throw a little salt and pepper on ’em and pop ’em on the grill. And sometimes, we […]

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. […]

Thiiiiiiiiiiis. I’m almost speechless. I said almost, don’t get too giddy. This kale caesar salad is straight up madness. First of all, it’s kale.

Remember at the beginning of the year when I made these Open-Faced Thai Peanut Chicken Sandwiches and I freaked my entire […]

Turkey Burger Salads with Pub Dressing

I put a cheeseburger in a salad. Is that cool with you? Of course it is, you’re not made of GRAVEL. I also made a pub dressing that I think you might take a shining to. Do you remember the pub sauce from my pub burger post a long time ago? It’s the same thing! […]
