Delicious Eats!


That is the only way to describe my current cooking style! 

My goal has been to limit the amount of preservatives we eat, and they are just in everything! Salad dressing, frozen food, soup, lunch meat, ugh...the list goes on and on and on. I know in this world and with our busy schedules it will be almost impossible to completely cut them from our diets. But a girl can dream...

The delicious salad above it a combo of my farmers market finds from this week (except the olives). I even made the dressing!! It is so so so so yummy and was adapted from the recipe found Here.

Cilantro-Lime-Ginger Dressing 

4 large (6 small) Cloves of Garlic
2 T. Fresh Ginger (just estimate)
2 Bunches of Cilantro (trim the stocks off)
1/3 Red Onion
 Juice from 3-4 Large Limes
1/2 cup White Wine Vinegar
2 t. Crushed Red Pepper
1 t. Salt
3 T. Honey
1/2-3/4 cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
1/2 cup Canola Oil
1/4-1/2 cup Olive Oil

Put it all in a food processor (or a blender if you don't have a processor). You may need a bit more oil or vinegar if it seems to thick from the cilantro. 

It should keep for up to 2 weeks in the fridge.

These delicious pretzel dogs were so fun and delicious! The recipe was from Brown Eyed Baker who is an absolute genius.

My little version of a...
 ...Monte Cristo...
...from let over french toast.

2 slices of French Toast
1 slice of Thick Ham
1 slice of Thick Turkey
1-2 t. of Apricot Jam
1 slice of Provolone Cheese

Make a sandwich out of the above ingredients minus the jam. Wrap your sandwich in paper towel and microwave for 45 seconds. After you take it out of the microwave and put on the jam. 

Eat Up! Yum!
