With all this talk of the crazy weather happening all over the country this winter, there’s no better time than now to cook a big ole pot of comfort food. Having lived up in Maine and Massachusetts for many years, this was a dish I often made on cold and snowy days.

Recently, we dined at a cafe in small town Fort Gibson, Oklahoma. Usually, these quaint eateries have some signature surprise that sets them apart from ‘the usual’ at other cafes and diners. This delicious little concoction of a salad tickled our tongues with a plethora of flavors. This Cucumber Pineapple salad was cool, refreshing; just inviting me to dissect it and recreate it back at our RV.
HEY! Put down that 50million carb candy bar down and look at THIS!!! Doesn’t this organic salad look gorgeous?! Who would think something so fresh, so bright and visually appealing could be so healthy and low carb? How about this colorfully and healthy Low Carb Spinach Caprese Salad?
There is nothing like coming home from the Farmer’s Market with a basket full of fresh vegetables and herbs especially right before Cinco de Mayo! Its one of my favorite times in our RV galley. Like an artist with a new art set, I love to set my palette of beautifully colored fresh ingredients and create a culinary masterpiece. One of them is my Chipotle Lime Pico de Gallo.
Just in time for Cinco de Mayo week!! Have you ever been stumped on what to have for lunch but you’re so ‘meh’ on slapping a few slices of ham or turkey and cheese between two slices of bread with a little spread and call it a meal? Well, how about making. a Guacamole on a roll sandwich!?
