Thai Cashew Chicken Salad

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. […]

Kale Caesar Salad with Grilled Chicken

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. Dark, earthy Tuscan kale, sliced into the tiniest ribbons and fist bumped for good measure. Then we have brioche croutons. An idea that comes from a Saturday morning PBS/Martha-thon. Then we […]

Curried Chicken and Lentil Pita Pockets

You’ve gotta pick a (pita) pocket or twoooo. If you get that reference we were meant to be together. Just don’t tell Aaron. Pita pockets!

Summer Spaghetti Salad

The dog days aren’t overrrrrr, the dog days aren’t done. The horses ain’t even coming, so you don’t have to run! Do you see what I did there? I changed the lyrics because we’re still in the dog days. The dog days of summer. They’re not over yet. And I’m betting Florence and her Machine […]

Thai Peanut Chicken Salad

I’m so excited about this salad I’m going to scream. But it’s the dressing I’m most screamy about. Matter of fact, I’m writing Scream part 427 right now, and it’s all about the dressing. Remember at the beginning of the year when I made these Open-Faced Thai Peanut Chicken Sandwiches and I freaked my entire […]
