Potluck Taco Salad

Taco Salad-5

One of the things I love about small town Midwest is that whenever there is a need, whether it be a wedding, funeral, or just a significant event in the community, people come out in the droves with food. Small town America shows love in food, and especially small town North Dakota.  Shortly after finding my church home here in North Dakota, I became a part of one of our kitchen committees. It is clear that God has given me…

Broccoli Salad

Broccoli Salad-3

Last week our local store Ashley Supervalu celebrated its’ golden anniversary! Fifty years in business is quite the accomplishment and all of us here in Ashley are so thankful for their continued hard work to provide groceries, meats, and produce for our small town.  As part of their celebration, they had lots of great events as well as lots of great sales. And I think I almost shrieked when I walked in and saw fresh broccoli was on sale. The…

Chicken Bruschetta Salad

Chicken Bruschetta Salad-1

A couple weekends ago, I spent a Saturday in Fargo with my BFF. And as usual, whenever I am “in the city” we always have to go out for good eats. We ate at Granite City and we both enjoyed an amazing chicken bruschetta salad. I am not a huge tomato person, they always taste so bitter to me. But this salad was incredible. The tomatoes were so sweet and were mixed with these caramelized red onions in a tomato…

Steakhouse Salad

Steakhouse Salad-2

One of my favorite things out there is a steakhouse style pizza. Big chunks of delicious steak. Some pepperoncinis. Some fancy cheese. It’s perfection. However, lately I’ve been trying to eat on the healthier side, adding more salads in my daily meals. I’ve been utilizing leftover meat from the night before into a salad the next day for lunch in order to get in some protein and keep me full longer. This steakhouse style salad has been my favorite to-date. Feel…

Buckwheat Beet Salad featuring Oaknook Farms

Buckwheat Beet Salad-2

It is no secret, I am a big proponent for whole grains and love to test recipes that encourage us to include more whole grains (versus refined grains) in our diets! I was super excited when Clare from Oaknook Farms in Manitoba, Canada got in contact with me to feature buckwheat. To be honest, I had no idea what buckwheat even was!? I had heard of it, but never really researched it too much. So if you’re like me, here’s…

Crop of the Month Recipes Salads Sides

Wild Rice and Edamame Sriracha Salad

Wild Rice and Edamame Sriracha Salad

As I am experimenting more and more with soy products during my Crop of the Month series, I am finding more and more uses for them. Really, shelled edamame can be added to anything. Rice pilaf, salads, stir fry. The uses are endless. They’ve become a great staple for me in the kitchen.  This is a quick salad I literally threw together in 10 minutes. The trick to this salad is you’ve got to let it sit and marinate in…

Wheat Berry Fruit Salad

Wheat Berry Fruit Salad (1)

Summer is finally here! Summer is my favorite time of year on the prairie… Everything is green, crops are growing, and best of all, we’ve got all sorts of delicious produce! There’s nothing better than a fresh salad with some beef from the grill.  I got the idea to add wheat berries to a fruit salad when I saw a fruit salad with quinoa in it. Why not add wheat berries instead? Perfect! This also makes a great breakfast and…

Roasted Beet Salad featuring Nathan Ashcraft

Roasted Beet Salad

So another one of those things I recently found I liked is beets. How did I go this far in my life without finding out how delicious beets are!? I am not sure. I have re-created this delicious salad several times now and I have been wanting to feature it. Luckily Nathan stepped up as my beet grower! And I am so excited to be featuring another gentleman farmer here on the blog! Today, Nathan shares with us about his family…

Spinach Gorgonzola Edamame Salad featuring Philip Shaw

SPINACH GORGONZOLA EDAMAME SALAD

I know mostly around here the ladies dominate my readership, so I appreciate it even more when the gentlemen give me support. One of those gentlemen is Philip. Philip was one of the first people I interacted with in social media. He has been such a support not only during my time in social media, but also in my writing and my marriage. Philip is a well-traveled and extremely well versed man  farmer from Canada whom I have a great deal of respect…

Sweet Corn & Black Bean Salad with Chipotle Dressing

Sweet Corn and Black Bean Salad

Well… my timing hasn’t been the best for my recipe posts. As I share this wonderful summer salad, it is a balmy 46 degrees outside. But I will carry on! We planted some Bt sweet corn this year, as we do every year since my husband has a serious obessession with it. I have a post about putting up sweet corn for the freezer in the works. But this salad takes a different take on enjoying the sweet corn besides…
