Quarantine Salad

A picture of a salad with olives, artichokes, tomatoes, and corn.

These days, I’m not the only one hesitating to make regular grocery runs. Yet I run out of ‘fresh’ food quickly, and I love salads!

So I came up with this salad, made from 4 cans. It’s delicious, and if you can find low or no sodium veggies, it’s also healthy.

Amazingly Simple & Delicious Cheesy Potato Bites

My daughter and I making these cheesy potato bites. Pictured is a bowl with the mix, plus a mini-muffin tin filled.

I started with these “Potato Cheddar Bites,” but kept simplifying. One time I had no eggs, another time I forgot the breadcrumbs, and often I didn’t have onion around. It came down to just TWO ingredients: shredded potato, and shredded cheese. That’s it. And they’re amazing!

Cabbage, Feta, Bell Pepper, and Green Onion Salad

Inspired by this Cabbage and Feta Salad, I’ve created my own go-to, easy, delicious salad! Cabbage, Feta, Bell Pepper, and Green Onion Salad

This has become something of a staple for me – I’ll make it for weeks and weeks in a row, sometimes. It’s easy to make, especially if you buy items pre-cut. It’s delicious. It’s (relatively) healthy, and filling if you eat enough of it. I love taking a large container of it into work. It keeps well for about 4-5 days, depending on the cheese.
