Potluck Pasta Salad

Last week, I got the phone call.. Someone in our community had passed away and it was our turn to show love in food and service.  Serving at events like funerals in the basement of our local church always gives me a renewed sense of faith in our small towns. I don’t know about where you live, but in small town America, we show love in food. There are many salads and bars that are brought to nourish the hearts of…

German Hot Potato Salad

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.  There are certain dishes you’ll always find in the lineup during any community potluck. I’ve shared the recipe for my favorite Potluck Taco Salad and one of the…

Potluck Taco Salad

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…

Chicken Bruschetta Salad

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…

Sweet Corn & Black Bean Salad with Chipotle Dressing

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…

Strawberry Spinach Salad

One of the best things about summer is the salads.. Fresh fruits and vegetables from the garden leave us with so many options when it comes to enjoying them fresh right from the garden. I always love to find new salad recipes so we don’t get stuck in the same old salad evening after evening. So I pulled up an old favorite the other night. I totally forgot about it.  I’ve made this salad for several pot lucks and get…

Cucumber Salad

Summertime has FINALLY hit North Dakota… although this week it cooled down significantly! BUT we experienced some summer weather for a few days! It counts! 🙂 I don’t know what screams summer to you or what your favorite parts about summer are… But I love summer because of the food. The fresh fruits and vegetables and of course all the bbq’s, picnics, and potlucks!  My husband and I have been enjoying lots of summer meals complete with salads, grilled meats,…
