This recipe, inspired by south-of-the-border flavors,  is a delicious twist on classic chicken salad. It’s got kick from the pickled jalapeños, crunch from the chopped veggies, and flavor from the cilantro and fresh lime. Serve the jalapeño chicken salad in the easy-to-make tortilla bowls or use it as a filling for wraps. The tortilla bowl isn’t as crisp and • Read More »

If you like blue cheese then you’ll love these sandwiches…they are soooo good! Peppery arugula, smoked turkey, sweet caramelized red onion and bold blue cheese…great combo!

The recipe calls for tuna packed in olive oil, a more flavorful variety than water-packed tuna.   Since • Read More »

For the dressing, I add a little Dijon mustard for extra flavor and a bit of sugar to soften up the acidity. Also, I roast the potatoes until they are nicely browned, which can take longer • Read More »
