My grocery list is filling up with more and more fresh fruits and lots of veggies, especially salad greens! May is almost here and that means so many more fresh and locally sourced produce in the grocery aisles! I’m even getting asparagus and lettuces and spinach from our garden. Here’s what’s ON THE MENU this week…



Happy Anniversary my darling Bobby! Marrying you 35 years ago was one of the best things I have ever done. You are the love of my life and my best friend. I hope we have at least another 35 years together to make more sweet memories! I love you SOOOOOOOOO!

I think this year we will have a cozy, romantic dinner together and celebrate more on the weekend!




All I can say about today is Y U M!!!!! And thanks Picture The Recipe



I’ve made this recipe several times and we LOVE it! It is truly scrumptious!!!! If you have not tried it yet… you should!



My Tex-Mex fix this week is quesadillas! Such an easy, yummy and good for you recipe!



I have not made soup for a few weeks and really miss the smell of divine soup cooking on my cooktop. I’m doubling the recipe and freezing some for lunches! This is absolutely the best chicken noodle soup. And there are a few secrets that I share about making this soup AMAZING!


When I do Chinese take-out it’s Cashew Chicken. But today I’m making my own in ONE skillet version! Easy cleanup and a great meal. I’ll be substituting the pea pods for lots of celery.



I was raised on salmon cakes. Back in the day, my Mom used canned salmon and no veggies. But today I’m using lots of gorgeous fresh salmon and onions and red peppers. I’m sooooo excited for these delicious bites!



I picked this dessert because it is so darn beautiful!!!!! And doesn’t vanilla bean cream sound heavenly?


Have a scrumptious week!

  11. We also love salmon cakes, so I’ll give yours a try. For an easy switch, try using the recipe on the Old Bay can for Crab Cakes, and use 3 cans of tuna (in water, drained), and 2 slices of bread ( crumbed in the food processor). This is a newer family favorite of ours. Thanks for all the great food inspiration.
