Fire Up The Grill, Toss the Slaw, I've Got The Fastest Salad Ever!!! Plus, Enter To Win Tropical Traditions Coconut. by kathy gori

Meatless Monday, Take The Corn Off The Cob! by kathy gori

What should greet us this morning as we returned from our early morning coffee run to the Basque Boulangerie but a large turkey vulture sitting on the branch of a tree looking down at our house. "Whoa!" I thought. What a kickoff to Meatless Monday. Whatever that big bird was looking for, he was not going to find it in my kitchen…

Got Carrot Salad? Got 20 Minutes?

Got Carrot Salad? Got 20 Minutes? by kathy gori

I love stuff that's fast and easy. These are the recipes that are lifesavers especially when "stuff" happens, for lack of a better word.

This was one of my "salad of the season" a couple of years ago and I made it anytime we went to bbqs or had people over for them. Everyone loves it and it takes no time at all…
