For me when it comes to food, nothing says SUMMER like a beautiful, fresh SALAD! 🙂
Here are some of my fav salads from the Veggie archives.
Hope you enjoy one or all of them soon.
(this post includes some handy tips for salad do’s and don’ts)
(a winner in one of my recipe contests! so delish)
(if you like fresh dill, try this one for sure)
(from a recent post, in case you missed it. I ♥ this salad!)
What is your favorite summer salad/food/recipe?
If you can, do share a link.
Happy Summer, it’s almost here! 🙂
If you are a past, present, happy or disgruntled…. user of Pyrex or Anchor Hocking glass bake/storage ware, you might want to read this recent (positive) review/report, over at my product review blog: My Real Life Reviews for Simax Glass Bake/Storage Ware.
Suffice to say, my research and experiments with these glass products have been a real eye-opener! And not entirely in a good way. 😦
But there is a happy ending! 😉 Don’t ya love those?
With BBQ season just around the corner, I’ve been thinking about burgers, hot dogs, buns…and healthier alternatives for all of them.
Today at my product review blog, I’m posting a review of Sol Cuisine Mushroom Rice Burgers.
This was a product I liked until I received an email from their company yesterday, with some “details” about their production process that I am NOT impressed or happy with.
Stop by My Real Life Reviews to read the full review. Suffice to say, sometimes even reading labels and checking information online is NOT enough. 😦 This company has lost a long-time customer, that’s for sure.
On a more positive note, it’s definitely doable to make a lot of the “basics” like veggie and (yes…) meat burgers and buns to go with them, from scratch.
These are my all-time fav burger buns:
Bread-Machine Rosemary Flax Buns
and not just because they are my own recipe. 😉
If you’ve never made your own burger and hot dog buns, this is definitely an easy way to get started. And if you aren’t a fan of rosemary, you can definitely leave it out.
A burger is JUST a burger, without a great bun to go with it!
I’m amazed at how many people who seem to be so particular about the burgers they buy or make , spend lots of $$$ on all sorts of toppings, but don’t pay any attention to the quality of buns they use; usually ending up with the cheapo, white-bread, soggy kind that are absolutely tasteless!
It’s not right and it’s not necessary. 😉
Here’s the link to the complete recipe for these delicious and oh so easy to make buns
If you give these buns a try, do let me know how you like them!
And on the topic of all things burger, what is your fav, absolutely MUST have topping ?
Mine is: dill pickles, sliced very thin and lots of them. Yummm….
Happy Baking and BBQ! 🙂
PS: On a completely unrelated topic, I am testing the waters with another blog idea (just what I need, another blog) 😉
This would be a weekly creative prompt blog.
