Mexican Orzo Salad

Pasta Salad: good on the side or perfect for a light meal.

There are so many different types of pasta salad, how do you choose just one!?

This Mexican Pasta Salad is delicious enough to count as a light summertime meal while still being healthy (and vegetarian). Often you see pasta salad made with big chunky pastas but this version switches it up a little allowing the other fresh summer flavors a chance to shine!

Comfort on a Plate

After making French Onion Soup for the first time a few weeks ago, Rich told me that I HAD to make it more often. I wanted to make a nice comforting soup for dinner the other night but knew that a hardy bowl of soup would not be enough for dinner. My ‘Aunt’ gave me beautiful ramekins for Hanukkah (which I had been wanting so badly, but had not even told anyone – that is why family and friends are so awesome, they know what you want without yo even asking!) Ramekins are perfect for frittatas (especially when this just happened to be during my SOS Broken Oven stage). Frittatas and French Onion Soup crocks both fit in the toaster over, and when the meal is rounded out with a french-caesar salad – it is healthy comfort food!

French Onion Soup

perfect for 2 (make more if you want to serve more people), give it a shot & don’t be shy. This stuff is delicious!

Salad – greens & some of your toasted bread from soup & dressing made of: french mustard, olive oil, red wine vinegar, garlic, salt, pepper & make it yours!

Frittata (this version) – mushrooms, broccoli, cheese (feta & cheddar) in buttered ramekin. Then pour your egg/milk mixture on top & bake. This is another one of those things that you can just kind of do to taste & can’t mess it up too bad.

DON’T be afraid in the kitchen: when cooking there is little that you can to completely mess it all up. Have fun & cozy up with some yummy treats on a cold day (or this works for those warm days too!)
