Mashed Blueberry Chicken Salad

Mashed Blueberry Salad

Have you guys noticed that blueberry recipes seem to be all the rage lately, or is it just me? Seriously, a couple weeks ago I received an email for Dark Chocolate Brownies with Blueberry Marshmallow Frosting from a food blog I subscribe to, Climbing Grier Mountain, and suddenly this salty-food craving gal needs those brownies with that blueberry frosting in her life.

One Pan BBQ Chicken, Asparagus & Spiralized Sweet Potato Noodle Fries

One Pan BBQ Chicken

Okay, I’m going to be honest – I rarely make one pan meals. And whenever my food-related newsletters come through email, I think to myself – why don’t I make my life easier and  make more one pan meals? Kinda like how I don’t eat enough fruits in my diet, and there’s really no rhyme or reason for it because I like fruit.

Deconstructed Chicken Cordon Bleu Bowl

There’s something about putting ham and swiss into a sandwich or chicken that makes it taste amazing. It’s really so simple, but when cooked correctly the combination is magical.

Deconstructed Chicken Gyro Bowls

Gyro Bowl

Bowls are one of my top favorite ways to eat food. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if I made a list and they ended up being #1. There’s something that’s just so fun and easy about them, and I kinda prefer eating out of a bowl. I liken it to having a preference for a certain type of pen (skinny ultra fine Sharpie’s here!) or a particular brand of bottled water (Smart Water for this gal!). There’s just something about eating out a bowl that makes the food taste better to me.
