• Kale Waldorf Salad – A Healthy Recipe Redo

    September 26, 2013DishinandDishes

    Growing up, my Mom used to make Waldorf Salad. I remember how the creamy coolness of the mayonnaise-based dressing was mixed all around crisp apple bites, crunchy walnuts and sweet juicy grapes. Mom always put baby marshmallows in her salad and the kid in me loved those little treats. Recently, however, I have been trying…

  • Roasted Beet Salad with Garlic Vinaigrette

    September 4, 2013DishinandDishes

    Lately I’ve had a little love affair with beets and recipes with beets.  I also have a love affair with mixed salad greens, particularly of late, thinly sliced kale (although not a lettuce) and spring mix, which I adore. I don’t know what it is, but I actually crave them.  Have you had fresh roasted…

  • Chicken Caesar Salad – My Way

    July 18, 2013DishinandDishes

    Somehow on these hot 100º days here in Oklahoma, hot meals don’t seem so appealing anymore. Salads, on the other hand, are very appealing. Today after church, I was craving a Caesar salad with homemade dressing. Please let me say right up front. If you are one of those die-hard caesar salad lovers and think…

  • Elote (Mexican Grilled Corn) Three Ways

    July 3, 2013DishinandDishes

    Elote is just the Mexican way of saying “corn on the cob” and is also commonly known as a Mexican street food sold from carts and stands along the road, especially in the evening hours. Mexican corn on the cob however, is served a little differently, (and deliciously) than our traditional American corn on the…

  • Avocado Salmon Salad with Arugula

    May 28, 2013DishinandDishes

    This is a simple summer salad that incorporates the buttery goodness of sockeye salmon with the sharp  peppery leaves of arugula and the creaminess of avocado. We ate this last week on our patio in the gorgeous shade of a beautiful summer evening and we loved every last bite of it. Drizzled with my Creamy…

  • Chicken Salad with Walnuts and Dried Cherries

    April 16, 2013DishinandDishes

    Last summer I went to Michigan to visit my family. I love escaping the Oklahoma heat and heading up north to  temperatures in Michigan that are about 20 degrees cooler at times than here. While there we always spend an entire day at the Birch Run Outlet Mall, perhaps the most enormous outlet mall you’ll…

  • Navy Bean Soup

    January 31, 2013DishinandDishes

    I have been on a soup kick ever since the cold has hit us this winter. This was, I believe, the third soup recipw I made in a week.  And it was just down-home-goodness in a bowl.  Navy Bean Soup is a memory from growing up as a child at dining at a local place I…

  • Roasted Butternut Squash Bisque with Sage Cream

    October 16, 2012DishinandDishes

    I’ve been wanting to experiment with a butternut squash bisque now for awhile.  I always see butternut squash soup recipes and my tumble rumbles just reading them! It’s just such autumny goodness in-a-bowl. Tonight I wanted a savory version, so I started looking.  I found many with apples, brown sugar and maple syrup, but I…

  • Easy Guacamole

    September 17, 2012DishinandDishes

    Now, I have two issues with guacamole. One is that you really need to make it at the last possible moment.  If not, the avocado oxidizes and begins to turn brown.  Lime juice helps a little, but you don’t want the taste overpowered by too much lime juice, so it’s best to make it at…
