I've got the perfect cold treat for you that's super easy to make on a hot summer day (no oven required!). I saw a similar recipe in a magazine and loved how easy it looked, thinking about when we occasionally break our rules and enjoy a sugary homemade treat.
This Green Goddess Chicken Salad recipe is from my new cookbook, Kitchen Matters, and is a delicious, more nutritious twist on a classic chicken salad. I start with poached chicken, which is super easy to make and a very healthful way to cook chicken.
Just yesterday we were talking about how the end of the school year doesn't necessarily mean the end of packing lunches! Summer brings so many opportunities to tote along a "real food" picnic, and today I have the perfect resource to help you with just that. In case you haven't heard there is a site called MOMables that specializes in kid lunch meal plans. The site, which is run by fellow mom and owner Laura Fuentes, is chocked full of really cute and original ideas. I started following their page on Facebook a few months back, and I just love some of the tips and pictures they share...including how to pack a baked potato, homemade oreos, and how to keep berries fresher longer. They are always full of good ideas so I am excited to introduce you to MOMables through this sponsored post today...they will definitely make your life easier!
I guess that's what happens you watch over 2 years of your hard work finally come to fruition all on one day! I am talking about my cookbook release date tomorrow of course. I just cannot believe it's finally here - eeeek!
We used to love making many different varieties of stuffed pasta shells, but now that we've gone the whole-grain route, I just cannot (easily) find jumbo whole-wheat shells in order to make all of our old favorites. So instead of giving up those yummy one-dish meals, I have just decided "unstuffed" dinners may be the way to go.
I am excited to share this super easy and super tasty version of Pasta Florentine that I adapted from a recent issue of Rachael Ray magazine. If you need some inspiration to switch things up with new recipes, then order a couple of food magazines. I love to flip through for ideas!
Oh, and PS - This particular dish was a HUMONGOUS hit with the kids. They have both repeatedly asked me if I can make it again. So enjoy!
