Kalamata Olive Dressing

Since completely revamping my diet, I’ve learned a thing or two about a good salad. The first rule: salads are only boring and flavorless if you make them boring and flavorless. How do you liven up a boring salad? This kalamata olive dressing is an excellent way to add some excitement to an otherwise meh meal.

Kalamata olives have been my best friends this summer. Their bright, briney flavor adds a flair to almost anything! So of course, I’ve been enjoying kalamata olives as a snack, a topping, a mix-in, and now a dressing. Drizzle this blend of chopped olives, herbs and oil on salads, chicken, beef, roasted vegetables…there are endless possibilities!

Roasted Beets with Parsley

This summer, I discovered something groundbreaking about my man spouse—he loves beets.

I found this out one day when I roasted a hefty tray of beets for dinner. I usually buy and prep veggies that I want, because the hubs doesn’t always want to eat what I make. You see, he currently works in the produce department of a local health food store. He eats fresh, organic produce all day long at work. (He’s admitted to eating 3 bunches of radishes in a day. Kid might have a problem.)

Green Balsamic Beef Kabobs

A simple parsley-based marinade adds a refreshing zest to these Green Balsamic Beef Kabobs. You can shake up the recipe by adding different vegetables to the kabobs — green or red bell peppers would be a nice touch!

Grilling has been my jam this year. Since getting our new grill, all we seem to want to do is fire it up for dinner.

While at a small, pre-season farmer’s market (here in North Dakota, our farmer’s markets don’t really get going until June or July), I picked up a simple brown paper bag filled with woodsy cremini mushrooms. Right away, I knew it was time to experiment with kabobs.

Pesto Bacon Chicken Thighs

Basil is about to be abundant, and there are few better ways to use it than these pesto bacon chicken thighs.

This recipe takes many things I’m fond of and throws it into one cast iron pan for a VIP party in the oven. While the pesto bacon chicken thighs are having their party, you’ll be patiently waiting in the kitchen, drooling at the phenomenal smell emanating from the oven door.

Luckily, there are only 3o minutes to wait until dinner’s ready to go.
