Cranberry, Pecan and Blue Cheese Salad

December 22, 2017

It’s three days before Christmas and I’m still contemplating over my menus. My extended family is coming to our house for lunch on Christmas Eve day so I thought I’d do a lighter menu than an elaborate five course dinner. I know we will be having a spiral ham with fresh rolls. I also must […]

It’s February so I thought it would be fitting to post a pink salad. February is also American Heart month and this salad is very heart healthy. And everyone needs a pink, healthy salad in their life, right? I am a huge fan of garbanzo beans. Or should I say chick peas? Up until I was in […]

Whenever our family heads to New York City, we like to try a new deli. While my husband judges the deli by their pastrami and corned beef, I look straight to the chicken and tuna salad. While the rest of my family are not crazy about these salads, I love them. And since I don’t […]
