A cool treat on a hot summer day! It’s been crazy warm here lately! We had a heat wave this past week, mixed with some smoky skies. There are several forest fires currently burning in interior BC. The fires have been ongoing for the past few weeks. There are a lot of residents displaced by … Continue reading Watermelon Salad
I’m a day late in posting! Hopefully Google doesn’t punish me too much for this. Who am I kidding? I’m not even sure what page of the search results anything I’ve written shows up on, but I’m sure it’s NOT page 1. Sorry for the delay.

First world problems, … Continue reading Greek Chicken, with a Grilled Veggie Salad

I have to admit, that lunch has always been one of those meals where I’m not quite sure what to make. We’re not really sandwich people and it’s getting warmer, so soup is no … Continue reading Everything but the Kitchen Sink Chicken Salad
I got my inspiration for this salad from two recipes from Giada de Laurentiis. Both her White Bean Tuna Salad and her Italian Tuna Salad are delicious! I highly recommend them both! I didn’t happen to have all of the ingredients for either recipe in the house. So… I modified it! This is pretty typical for me, as … Continue reading Italian(ish) Tuna Salad
