How can I even begin to describe the deliciousness that is this dip?! Let’s see…to start: it tastes like cheese. Blue cheese. It is super healthy and made with only 3 ingredients. It also compliments pretty much everything. Skinny Buffalo Chicken Wings? Put some dip on them. Veggies? Put some dip on them. Salad? Put some (dip) dressing on it. Ice cream? Put some…ok. That may be taking things a little too far. But really, this is great stuff!Continue Reading
It’s a very good thing that I was struggling with lung issues instead of heart issues a couple of weeks ago…otherwise I would have been in some serious danger after the game I went to over the weekend! It was a truly thrilling game – we’re up one second, down the next. I really and truly loved every second of that game…except the last one. Sadly, we lost. It was pretty awful. I mean, our state rival has to beat us every now and then, I suppose, or it wouldn’t be much of a “rivalry,” but still. It’s never fun to watch your team lose.Continue Reading
The Fourth of July is practically a week away – WHAT?! Crazy – this summer is just flying by! Where did June go, right?
I don’t know about you, but my favorite thing to do for the 4th is to visit with family and friends – eating good food and having fun! Since I grew up in Atlanta, I also prefer to start the day of with a 10K (Peachtree Road Race, anyone?), but that might just be me! 😉 That’s my tradition and I love it! …and I don’t have to be in Atlanta to follow it. I’ll run my 10K wherever I am – I mean, how else will I be hungry enough to eat some of everything at our afternoon/evening get-together?! There is logic to my tactic…plus, I really like to run!Continue Reading
Boston, Boston, what to say about Boston?! I’ve only been here for a few days now, but I’m already very pleased with the food! There is so much variety, though I do miss all of the readily-available Mexican food of the the south! One thing I don’t miss, though, is Italian food. Why??? Because there is just so much of it here!!! I know you all know of my Italian heritage, so you can understand why I am delighted by the plethora of Italian restaurants I have found in Boston.
Last week I posted my favorite summer salad dressing, Lemon Vinaigrette. I recommended you eat it with your favorite salad fixings, but I know plenty of you have been wanting me to post a salad that I would dress with the Lemon Vinaigrette. Your wish is my command! This Chickpea (a.k.a. Garbanzo Bean) salad is fresh, crisp, lean, and full of protein! Its the perfect salad for the summer time, when we are all trying to look and feel our best. Combining this lean salad with the Lemon Vinaigrette gives it a delicious tanginess that can’t be beat.
