Cornbread Salad

Cornbread Salad

One of my favorite recipes for lunch is Cornbread Salad.  It isn’t the most photogenic of recipes but once you taste it you won’t care what it looks like. I guess you could call it a Beauty and the Beast Salad. Like Belle, I tried to dress it up with a rose. But ultimately it really […]

Orca Beans

Orca Beans

I found these beans at Publix seemingly calling my name.  I love the coloration and the fact that I’d never seen this variety before.  I didn’t get a photo of the bag before cooking so you get to see an empty bag on my deck.  The brand is Bob’s Red Mill and I found them […]

Lemon Rice Salad

Lemon Rice Salad

Lemon and rice don’t seem to go together.  Just like I didn’t really see the whole bacon/maple frosted doughnut thing. Or the chocolate dipped potato chip craze.  But once you try it, you “get it.”  And, once you try this salad, I know you will enjoy it. I like this salad for its fresh taste […]
