Sunflower Crunch Salad

The reason I call this a “copycat” salad is that it mimics my favorite bagged salad which I purchase in the produce section of the market.

However, if I’m totally honest here (and why wouldn’t I be?), my Kudos Kitchen version is even better than that bagged version because I’ve added dried cranberries to the mix, and I’ve also added apple cider (you can use apple juice if needed) to thin the dressing, and for a little touch of extra sweetness.

Basil Pesto Spaghetti Squash Puking Pumpkin

The day I came up with this recipe for pesto spaghetti squash was the day I first spotted the little pie pumpkins in the produce section of the store.

I stood there for a moment pondering how I could use one of the pumpkins along with some spaghetti squash which was one section over.

The idea hit quickly. Kind of like nausea itself. But, trust me when I tell you queasy never tasted so good! Ewww. LOL

Healthy Sautéed Creamed Spinach with Strawberries

This dish of Sautéed Creamed Spinach & Strawberries came about one night when I was contemplating a side dish to serve with some fish I was cooking.

Since I had strawberries in the fridge that I needed to use before they spoiled, I tossed some into the sauteed creamed spinach I was preparing. The completed dish tasted amazing, and it was a feast for the eyes as well as the taste buds!

Creamed Spinach Casserole Low-Carb Recipe Kudos Kitchen Style

I’m trying to do more and more low-carb cooking since it’s the eating plan my family and I have decided to implement in our busy lifestyle.

Because of that, I’ve developed this recipe for Keto Creamed Spinach Casserole which has an incredibly cheesy flavor, and it’s deliciously satisfying and satiating.

Fresh Healthy Broccoli Salad from Valerie’s Home Cooking Cookbook

The majority of the recipes you’ll find here on Kudos Kitchen are my own original creations. However, from time to time because of my blog I’m approached by publishing houses about doing cookbook reviews. This post (and the recipe for Healthy Broccoli Salad) is one such review. All the opinions I share are 100% my own.
