Oh, I love a good Italian style pasta salad. Fresh tomatoes, asparagus, olives, red onion, marinated artichoke hearts and parmesan cheese…all tossed together with pasta and a flavorful dressing. You could even add some shredded chicken and turn this lovely salad into a meal! Then please invite me
Potato Salad Season is in full swing, ladies and gentlemen! It’s also the season for swimming in a stream, eating a popsicle on the porch and seeing a few fireworks now and then. You’ve got to love it, don’t you? Love it to pieces. Summer living seems to be one party after another, and we are dr
Across the street from me, lives a darling little family with the most darling little kids you have ever laid eyes on. I try to limit the number of times I tell them things like “Good heck, your kids are so cute!” and “Those are the most handsome kids walking this wide world.” People start to look a
I have a very simple, very refreshing, summertime fruit salad recipe for you all today.

Ah, the Classic Macaroni Salad. My late Grandma Barb used to make one similar to this and I have to say I was inundated with thoughts of her while I was making it yesterday. It’s funny how certain foods (and songs!) remind you of people. My Gram loved to cook and Macaroni Salad was one of her specia

What could possibly be gourmet (and wonderful!) about a green salad, you might be wondering? Perfectly toasted homemade croutons? Garden grown lettuce, tomatoes and onions? Bacon that has been treated and smoked to perfection? (Ok, those all sound really good!) However delicious they may be, none

This salad is very unique and tasty. The feta cheese and artichoke hearts give nice sharp bite to the pasta. It is a great addition to any get together. The recipe comes from my sweet friend Katherine. She does not have a sharp bite, or harsh word to say about anyone. She’s a sweet gal raising
