Grape & Watercress Salad with Caraway & Granola

The beauty of this salad, in addition to it’s appearance, is that all of the elements that go into assembling it, can be prepared a day ahead. Another possibility is to forego the homemade granola and pick some up from the help-yourself...

Turkey Sausage & Arugula Pasta

Using whole-wheat pasta and turkey sausage rather than pork, give this dish a healthier advantage.  Simple and quick to prepare, yet unbelievably flavorsome. Not a fan of arugula?  Try using fresh spinach instead.

Cranberry-Avocado Salad w/Candied Spiced Almonds

Love this salad from honestcooking.com. It’s complimentary with endless cold-weather meals. The spicy almonds also serve as a tasty topping on ice-cream or yogurt and you can tweak the level of spiciness according to personal taste.

Open-Face Turkey Burgers w/Gruyere, Mushrooms, & Arugula Salad

A little something from each of the food groups is represented in this pretty little package.  Serve fresh cut-up heirloom tomatoes along side, sprinkled with fresh ground black pepper.

Arugula & Peach Salad w/Creamy Chive Vinaigrette

Enjoy the juicy, ripe peaches out there on the market.  Try mixing slices with crisp arugula and an easy-to-prep creamy chive dressing.  One of my faves.

Grilled Pork Burgers w/Aioli

These burgers do take a little time to prep, but you can make them ahead of time and refrigerate. When you’re ready to grill them, allow each to get to room temp prior to grilling. Making the aioli sauce is not my forte, so I found that...

Snap Pea Salad w/Burrata

A recipe from Bon Appetit May 2013… tasty side salad with any late spring/summer meal or even as a lunch dish. Crisp sugar snap peas and /or snow peas mixed with arugula, basil, mint and the ever-amazing burrata cheese. Man I love burrata...

Roast Beef Sandwiches w/Lemon-Basil Mayo & Roasted Red Onions

Get a jump start on these sandwiches a day or two prior to assembling, by roasting the onions and prepping the mayonnaise topping in advance. Makes for a quick, satisfying and complete lunch and/or dinner option.

Grilled Bread w/Arugula, Goat Cheese, Olives & Onions

A portion of this can be prepared ahead of time saving you time when assembling. I like to grill the onion slices rather than saute… keeping them together with wooden skewers helps from them sliding through the grill grate. The citrus...

Summer Salad w/Blueberries

A salad full of texture, vibrant color, and seasonal summertime fruit. Jicama can be found in many supermarkets in the produce section. If unavailable, no worries… salad is still worth it and equally and refreshingly tasty.
