Southwest Chicken Salad

I LOVE this chicken salad! I feel like it’s a guilt free taco. You can either wrap it in a warm tortilla, or scoop it with tortilla chips. But my favorite way to eat this zesty salad is to scoop it into crisp, cold lettuce leaves and eat as a southwest lettuce wrap. Ole!...

This is THE BEST minestrone soup recipe I’ve ever tried! My Mom gave it to me years ago (thanks Mom!)

Use the freshest ingredients you can find–it makes a big difference.  I love the method of pureeing a...
