Sundays are probably my least favorite days of the week. Since I work overnights, I basically get a half day on Sundays. I'll typically wake up around 3 am, and then be back in bed at 11 in the morning. I get all my cooking done on Sundays, but that's about the only "fun" thing… Continue reading Vietnamese Chicken Salad
How's your Wednesday going, Colleen? Well, I currently feel like my cat, Iggy: We're midway through the week but it already feels like Friday. This week has just drug on, and on, and on...

If you know me, you know celery is my archnemesis.… Continue reading Cranberry & Pecan Turkey Salad
A classic Italian salad beefed up to an entree. Marinate chicken with balsamic vinegar, basil and mustard and then grill. Toss in mozzarella pearls, cherry tomatoes and avocado for an added punch!
Cole slaw is one of those things you either love or hate. If you bring it to a cookout or party, sometimes it will all go fast...or other times people will hardly touch it. When given the choice between slaw or pasta or potato salad, people usually choose the starchier side dish. I've always liked… Continue reading Memphis Coleslaw
