Incredible Salad 2019

Salad is always one of the special dishes on our Thanksgiving table, and this year will be no exception. Last Thanksgiving I made a delicious jeweled kale and roasted acorn squash salad sprinkled with pomegranate seeds. This year I am making an interesting tossed salad mixing romaine lettuce with salad fixings and some savory condiments.

Book Reviews

As a blogger, I often am offered books to review. 
Recently, I received a book called, Yes, It Really Is All About Me by Darleen Miller. 

Darleen's book is targeted for caregivers.
Darleen explains that she has been a lifelong teacher and caregiver to her parents, grandparents, and three children. When her husband became ill, she became his primary caregiver for twelve years.

Cocette's Moroccan Carrots

Moroccan spiced carrots are a tasty and popular side dish, but there are as many different recipes for these carrots as there are cooks. However one thing is almost always certain, Middle Eastern and North African recipes tend to favor savory and spicy flavors in their vegetables rather than sweet ingredients.

Yda's Arugula Salad with Shaved Parmesan

Sweet red onion rings, slivers of colorful apple, peppery arugula, and shavings of Italian Parmesan cheese, burst with flavor when tossed in my homemade creamy lemon olive oil dressing.  This beautiful salad will delight your family and friends whether it's for a weeknight family dinner or upcoming holiday dinner.

I'm a lover of salads. In fact, we eat a salad everyday. However,  I do try to vary my greens and other ingredients to avoid boredom.

When I want to add some zing to my salads, I add a little arugula. This feathery simple green not only has a zesty taste, but it also provides powerful nutrients.
