I have loved tuna salad of all shapes and sizes since forever, but in the summer this is my all-time fave. Tuna tossed with fresh local tomatoes, fresh herbs, a handful of capers and the olive oil from the tuna jar – that’s all you need to make a tuna salad that is summertime delicious. Ready for some easy, perfect tuna salad, hold the mayo? Let’s make it!
I am a big old soup lover, and just because we are getting into the lazy hazy days of summer, that doesn’t mean I am giving up my beloved soup. Nope, I’m just going to divert to cool and refreshing soups that are just the ticket for warm summer evenings. Chilled hummus soup. Avocado vichyssoise. And my current favorite, which is this scrumptious and easy shrimp gazpacho. It comes together in less than 15 minutes, and is chock-full of good and good for you summer veggies.
So, ready to cook down with my new favorite summertime soup supper? Let’s make it!
I have an uneasy relationship with egg salad. One the one hand, I love eggs in any way shape or form (my current favorite form is eggs in clouds!) but when you start introducing mayonnaise into the mixture…well, I start to get a little antsy. I recently made peace with a mayo-based form of egg salad with my recipe for torn egg salad, but during our last round of the Whole 30, a lightbulb went off in my head.
What if I swapped out the mayo for the healthy, creamy goodness of mashed avocado? And what if I zipped up that mashed avocado by adding a few ingredients that took it into guacamole territory? Well, let’s just say that egg salad and I are now besties. Let’s make it!
I am a huge fan of sheet pan dinners and I know lots of you are too, because my sheet pan recipe for One Pan Chicken and Vegetables is so popular on this blog that we turned it into a video (check out my video player on the right sidebar). So I figured, what’s good for dinner should be good for breakfast and brunch too, right? Right? And what better place to start my breakfast sheet pan adventures than with our old friends bacon and eggs.
This easy peasy recipe is a great way to cook up a whole mess of bacon and eggs along with some healthy and handsome sweet potatoes, and with exactly one plan to clean up at the end, it’s also good for those days when you just can’t deal with cleaning up the kitchen. Ready to sheet pan your breakfast? Let’s make it!
Ah, this chicken soup! It has so many things going for it, not the least of which is that it cooks up low and slow all day long in your slow cooker, which means that you will walk in to your kitchen at the end of the day and it will dawn on you that yes, dinner is pretty much almost made. Along with that, it’s packed with carrots and celery and sweet onion and potatoes, so not only is it scrumptious and super easy, it’s also good and good for you. It’s the soup that keeps on giving. Let’s make it!
So, did everyone have a merry holiday and and happy New Year’s Eve? We did, and them some. We ate all the cookies and all the chocolate and all the cheese, and drank all the wine and you KNOW we ate all the holiday dessert. We reveled into the night and then got up and had breakfast sandwiches. And then on January 2nd we tried to button our jeans. Um.
So in our house, when there are jeans-buttoning issues, we dive into the Whole 30, which you can find out more about by clicking here, but in a nutshell is thirty days of getting back to a healthy eating of veggies and protein and healthy fats and while there is no wine or chocolate or cheese, there are loads of great things to eat. And one of them is this dreamy creamy tomato meatball soup. Ready to be warm and wonderful and healthy? Let’s make it!
