Share List I love salads that don’t actually involve lettuce.  While lettuce is fine, it’s like a talisman to the fact that I’m actually dieting, which irritates me, so I pretend I don’t like it.  I’m always looking for something quick to throw together to make a non-lettuce salad to go with dinner.  I stumbled across this recipe from The Dinner Daily and adjusted it a bit for our tastes. >> Get the Recipe!

Share List I love the concept of cooking once and making multiple meals out of the results.  Putting a pot of marinara in the slow cooker is a great way to quickly put something tasty together, freeze the leftovers, and having at least 4 meals out of the product.
