Macaroni Salad

I brought this salad to a friend’s house and this was her review: “Super yummy and not your typical mother’s macaroni salad! My favorite things about it: the crunch, that it wasn’t too mayonnaisey, and I loved the spice–it’s addictive! Brandon said it was really good too! We will enjoy every bite. Thanks!!!”  That...

Slow Cooker Chicken Cacciatori

Don’t let the red pepper flakes scare you (or your kids)–they nicely balance out the sugar in the sauce. Leftovers are even yummier the next day. Thanks to Allrecipes.com for the recipe....

Minestrone Soup

This is THE BEST minestrone soup recipe I’ve ever tried! My Mom gave it to me years ago (thanks Mom!) It’s a knock-off recipe from a well known Italian restaurant in Michigan, called Lelli’s (thanks Lelli’s!). Use the freshest ingredients you can find–it makes a big difference.  I love the method of pureeing a...
