Broccoli Salad

Yay, broccoli! At least that’s what your family will be saying after trying this salad. I actually don’t know that anyone has ever really used that sentence in a real life situation but I thought I’d see how it sounded. And it sounds a little ridiculous. Broccoli is really good, don’t get me wrong… But it’s definitely not cake. So that’s why in this recipe we trash it up with some other really good stuff and call it a salad… Because it does have broccoli in it after all. I lo

Mandarin Orange Salad

Whenever I get pregnant, the thought of eating sugar makes me feel sick so I apologize for the upcoming lack of dessert recipes around these parts. It kind of made me sad around Thanksgiving and Christmas, when all those yummy treats were abounding, I didn’t want any of them! They only come around once a year, and I was so sick that I didn’t even have a slice of pie on Thanksgiving! Tragedy. Especially because you all know my feels about pie. Anyway, a lot of people have aske

Classic Blue Cheese Wedge Salad

Wedge salads are my new favorite way to consume vegetables. And bacon. But do you really need a favorite way to consume bacon? I think just the action of eating bacon in and of itself is everyone’s favorite way to eat bacon. Have you ever met a human on this planet that doesn’t LIKE bacon? I’m not talking about vegetarians or people who don’t eat pork for religious reasons, I’m talking about someone who by their own will and choice decides that bacon just doesn’t taste good t

Nuts About Berries Salad

This. This is summer in a bowl. Summer is the bee’s knees. Especially here in Utah. It’s pretty hard to beat a summer evening in Utah. Then you have splash pads, and swimming, and carnivals, and and and … Actually, I took baby girl to the carnival the other day. Can I just tell you? The day before we go I imagine her first experience at the carnival. She’s running around with her ice cream in hand laughing and skipping in slow motion. (Don’t ask me why she’s skipping, she’s n

Copycat Olive Garden Salad

There are three things that I really like at the ol’ O.G O.G. as in the original gangster. Or Olive Garden, because I don’t know the first thing about gangsters. All I know is that they have like gold teeth and pants that are 7x too big that drag so low to the ground that the only thing keeping them up are their mom’s prayers. Anyway, this salad is among one of the items that I really enjoy at Olive Garden. This salad, this soup and their breadsticks. YUUM. All of which are r

Spiced Almonds

Oh my H. E. double hockey sticks. These almonds are the BOMB. Here they are sprinkled over vanilla ice cream with some warm caramel drizzled over the top. HOT DANG. But these suckers are versatile, and are amazing sprinkled over a salad as well. I’ll show you that another time though, because I know that all you really want to see are desserts. This is such a simple way to spruce up something as simple as plain vanilla ice cream, but the outcome is outrageously good. Don’t be

Strawberry Spinach Salad

Famous Julie tends a mean garden. I don’t know how she does it but pretty much anything she touches grows like a weed. She would argue that especially the weeds grow like weeds, but that just proves my point. One of my favorite things to eat fresh out of her garden are her strawberries. Let’s just say if for some unknown reason her strawberries were the only thing I was allowed to eat for the rest of my life, I would totally be okay with that. She also grows her own spinach,

Italian Salad

You can always tell when I’ve been home. Because I all of a sudden have these really awesome polish pottery dishes to photograph my food on. Famous Julie is, like, totally a hipster and bought all of her pottery way before anyone had ever even heard of polish pottery. I remember going on trips to Poland with her when I was younger, and walking into polish pottery shops and looking through seemingly endless rows of dishes. I wish I had appreciated it then, because I feel like
