I know I just posted a salad recipe a few days ago, but I’m gonna post another one because I absolutely can’t wait to tell you about this salad dressing. I promise, it will change your life and the way you feel about salads FOREVER!
I recently discovered this salad dressing called Brianna’s Home Style Blush Wine Vinaigrette. It’s this kind of sweet, tangy, strawberry-ish tasting concoction that is unbelievably to die for on top of salads. I love to eat it just plain on top of some mixed greens, but you could also add tuna, nuts, fruit, cheese, or any other veggies to a salad with this and it would still be yummy. It’s also really good drizzled on fresh strawberries.
You can find this at Walmart, Target, Safeway, Whole Foods, or any other grocery store and it has a big strawberry on it. I think they have a couple other different flavors, too, but the Blush Wine is mine and my family’s favorite. Give it a try, and let me know if you liked, hated it, found another flavor that was good, or have a different favorite dressing. Enjoy!
Tacos are already pretty good, but they’re even better when you make your own hard, crunchy shells. It’s so easy to do, too, and it gives you a sense of pride knowing that you did something not a lot of people do.
Now you can stuff them with whatever you want, beef, fish, pork, whatever floats your boat. Try this fun technique out and I promise you’ll never go back to the store-bought shells!
Talk about a decadent dessert! These little chocolate truffles melt in your mouth and are a super fun way to get your kids involved in the kitchen. They’re as fun to make as they are to eat!
Truffles are really easy to make and, obviously, so delicious! You can make so many different type of truffles using this basic recipe from Pioneer Woman, and then stuff, dip, or roll them in whatever you want. The possibilities are endless!
S’mores Truffles (Truffle Recipe by The Pioneer Woman)
- 8 oz. unsweetened chocolate
- 8 oz. semisweet chocolate
- 1 can sweetened condensed milk
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1/2-1 c Marshmallow Fluff
- 1/4 c Graham Cracker Crumbs
Combine the chocolate and condensed milk in a double boiler.
Then combine the marshmallow fluff and a tbsp. of butter in a double boiler and melt it over medium heat until….
…it’s nice and smooth. Then take the truffles out of the fridge, and dip them in the marshmallow mixture. Dip the marshmallow part into a plate of graham cracker crumbs to coat them after. Enjoy!
Whenever someone says “salad”, I always imagine people are thinking, “Oh great, what kind of boring salad am I going to be eating this time?” But salads don’t have to be boring, especially if they’re full of different textures and flavors. They also don’t have to be complicated, and are a great way to use up your leftovers. That’s how I came up with this salad, I used some left over ingredients from a salad we had had a few days ago, and I used a couple of ingredients that I always have on hand. It was a huge hit and so easy to throw together and I’m sure you’re family will love it, too!
-Sun dried Tomatoes, chopped
-Calamata Olives, halved
-Roasted Red Peppers, sliced
-Lemon juice (1 lemon)
-Olive oil (2-3 tbsp.)
-Salt and pepper
-Sugar (1-2 tsp.)
Combine the lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper, shallot, and sugar to make the dressing. Just keep tasting it to adjust it to your likings. Then combine all the other ingredients in a big bowl and toss with the dressing. Enjoy!
