Green Veggies with Poached Egg

This recipe came about from having a bounty of veggies that needed to be used up before they went bad….you know how that goes, you buy the ingredients to make something and it doesn’t get made…then you don’t feel like making it anymore and you come up with something else completely different…I liked the idea of Heidi’s Shakshouka but didn’t have any tomatoes so instead I put all my green veggies to good use…stay safe everyone…

Spinach, Burrata & Crispy Prosciutto Salad


I assemble this quick salad when I need to serve a tasty & effortless lunch. The crispy prosciutto adds just the right amount of salty flavor that compliments the creamy burrata. I use Roma tomatoes in the winter when fresh Jersey tomatoes are not in season. Ciabatta or Italian bread cubes toast quickly in the oven and the dressing is a breeze to make. All in all a healthy addition to the salad rotation! Continue reading

Spinach Lasagna Roll Ups

Spinach Lasagna Roll Up's
Who doesn’t love lasagna. I find this easy roll up version to be great for entertaining due to the perfect individual sizes. It also becomes great for changing the inside flavors. For instance along with the spinach version I made a turkey sausage version. The possibilities are endless so I suggest you roll with it… Hahaha! Continue reading

Smoked Salmon & Roasted Mushroom Salad
This salad is divine! Made almost out of desperation… On Wednesdays my hubby usually has lunch with his business partner and I fully anticipated that, until I got his text while I was on the incline trainer… “Lunch with my princess today”… (the best man ever!)… I had not planned on lunch. While I jumped off the trainer and Hubby jumped on, I went to work on figuring out lunch. With what I had on hand I made this accidental amazing salad! Really delicious! Continue reading

Pear, Blue Cheese & Candied Pecan Salad

Pear, Blue Cheese & Candied Pecan Salad
This tasty fall salad actually reminds me of spring. I served it recently at a luncheon I hosted. Since I love to decorate my dining table to the 9’s as often as I can, I invite different groups of women to a lunch and we have a wonderful, elegant time. Sometimes it’s for charity, and sometimes just because. This time it was for all the wonderful women who work for my husband that make his office run like a well-oiled machine. I had to ask the boss to let me have them for a little while…It was a lot of fun and I was thrilled to show them my appreciation for all they do. Continue reading
