I have a confession to make; I’d never even tried a blood orange before making this Blood Orange and Blueberry Salad. Oh sure I’d seen them in the stores often enough, and on other people’s blogs, but since I’m not that fond of eating citrus fruits on their own, I’ve never added them to my shopping cart. Until now!

I’ve always been all about the pretzel. Whether it’s a soft, warm pretzel that’s been slathered with yellow mustard, or a large, fragrant, yeasty pretzel bun, which elevates a delicious burger from good, to great! It’s always the pretzel that makes things memorable. Always.
You guys, it’s apple season! Can you feel the slight chill in the air and the warm scent of cinnamon that is just about everywhere? Yeah, me either but I’m hopeful that it will happen soon. Even though it’s September, today in Illinois where I live the temperatures are supposed to be in the 90’s with a heat index in the 100’s. UGH! Oh well. Since there’s nothing I can do about the outside temperatures, I might as well make it feel like fall on the inside and cook up a batch of Slow Cooker Homestyle Apple Pear Sauce with Amaretto.
Back in the 70’s (my high school days) I remember cucumber dip being all the rage. It was a tangy mix of grated cucumber, sour cream, and onion. I decided to revisit what I recall was my favorite dip, and (naturally) add my own twist to it for a 2016 update.
Here we are at the end of the summer BBQ season and at the front door of tailgating season. What I love about this dill pickle potato salad is that it can carry through the two seasons, seamlessly and effortlessly. Trust me when I tell you that you’ll score big points with family and friends no matter when you serve it!
This dish can be made with any type of pasta that is your favorite. I happen to enjoy linguine, and had it in my pantry, so that’s what I used. Feel free to swap out whatever you have, and whatever is convenient. This roasted tomato bacon pasta takes approximately 30 minutes, from start to dinner, which makes it a stress-free recipe that will please the entire family any night of the week.
This heirloom tomato salad is so good, so fresh, and so loaded with textures and flavors that will explode in your mouth with each and every bite. The crunch from the pistachios, the creaminess of the goat cheese, the sweet and oniony bite of the red onion, the savory earthiness of the fresh thyme, the mild and pungent fragrance of the garlic lemon olive oil, and of course the sweet and juicy garden fresh tomatoes.
