Grilled Zucchini Summer Salad

Grilled Zucchini Summer Salad

My idea for this salad initially started out as a Grilled Avocado Salad… that didn’t turn out as planned when two of the avocados were super ripe and then one was hard as a baseball. Truly living out the avocado memes. So, instead, when gardens […]

Winter Citrus Salad with Avocado and Pomegranate

Winter Citrus Salad with Avocado and Pomegranate

A year ago, I published this winter citrus salad recipe. Now, with the re-brand and a better camera, I decided to re-vamp this recipe. Not much has changed so I’m not even sure re-vamp is the right term, other than I swapped out goat cheese […]

Jalapeno Cranberry Sauce
