For me, there’s nothing quite like a tasty salad once the temperatures have started to rise. To be honest, I am even eating a grilled chicken salad that I whipped up myself for dinner as I type this out.

I mean, not only are a lot of salads nowadays super satisfying (take that naysayers), but they can also be really refreshing, which is perfect for this time of year. So if you’re one of those who’ve never seen the appeal of a salad, I highly suggest you trying one of the above.

Super Bowl Sunday

Super Bowl Sunday is this Sunday and I know many of you are anxious as to what food to have prepared. As sad as I was to see my Texans not make it past the Patriots this year, I still am quite excited to throw a Super Bowl party in my quaint (for a better word) apartment this weekend. Food is one of the most important, if not the most important, aspects behind a Super Bowl party. My mother would always make Seven Layer Dip whenever my dad and I were craving something yummy to snack on. Also, I have always loved Pulled Pork and Pulled Pork Sliders are such a great, individualized way to get that pulled pork I crave! For those that want to get some yummy grub on, while also being healthy, Broccoli Salad is an amazing way to do just that. At the most recent family Christmas party, my aunt made it and not even an hour later was the majority of it gone. And of course–it must all be topped off with coca cola w/salted peanut butter frosting for some southern flair! 😉
