If there's one thing I love about summer, its the endless Caprese salads. Wait, you don't have endless Caprese salads where you're from? That's weird. I thought it was a universal thing. Okay, I get it. Caprese salads aren't really a "sign of summer" like lemonade stands and hot dogs. But it's something I make… Continue reading Caprese Turkey Burger

I have been able to make up… Continue reading Pesto Caprese Chicken Casserole

Summer is right around the corner, and with that comes cookouts, barbecues, camping and vacations. I typically loathe the hot weather, but I'm actually looking forward to it this year. Next weekend I'm going on a camping trip with friends to my most favorite place on the planet: Chickasaw National Recreation Area. It's a beautiful… Continue reading Baked Caprese Panzanella Salad
