So today’s post is for pita bread. And while this is delicious by itself, it goes really well with the Greek salad post that is going up this Wednesday. So I highly recommend making them together. We’ve been making this in big batches and eating it for lunch all week.

As summer produce comes to an end, it gets harder and harder to make interesting salads. But so far, I’ve still been able to find good broccoli, corn, and tomatoes in the store. This salad is very easy to make, but has enough different flavors in it to keep it interesting. Plus, it is very easy to make in advance and then eat all week if you’re busy!
Yes, you read that title correctly. This is a recipe to turn your favorite childhood sandwich into a dessert bar. So go stock up on your favorite peanut butter, and make this recipe. And don’t try to be healthy and buy the healthy peanut butter. Give into your childish tendencies and buy the Jiffy or Skippy peanut butter. We all know it tastes so much better!!
Spicy Shrimp Salad
If you’re looking for an easy weeknight salad to make before we get into true fall weather where all we want to eat is soup and carbs, here’s a good option! The shrimp is delicious, and the salad has a great mix of veggies.
Half Cookie, Half Brownie
Brownies are great, and so are chocolate chip cookies. So why not make a cookie that combines both and allows you to have a bite of each at the same time? Plus, these are really easy to make, and this recipe makes a lot, so you can share them with your friends/coworkers/family.
Sriracha Bacon Chicken Bites
Bacon, brown sugar, and sriracha. So much good flavor all in one bite size piece of food. Dave made these last month for a work potluck, but before he got them out of the house I managed to sneak a couple and they were amazing!
I love making a big batch of granola on the weekend because it then gives me something to eat all week for breakfast that simply involves pouring it into a bowl and adding some milk (almond milk in my case). This recipe uses coconut oil, which perhaps was done by the original source to make it vegan, but for me, I just love the taste of coconut and how light it keeps this granola. It’s Sunday morning still, so go on, make yourself some granola, and you’ll be thanking me every day this week ahead as you enjoy it for breakfast!
I eat Mexican food in every form. Literally, I live for anything with a bean, corn, salsa, guacamole combo. This is my latest iteration of a Mexican dish, and quite frankly, I think it is the healthiest version so far. The base is cauliflower rice, which is literally cauliflower and seasoning. I haven’t been keeping count, but I think we’ve made this dish once a week since I discovered the recipe in July.
Lemon Lime Skillet Cookie
Feel like zesting up your life? This dessert is full of lemon and lime zest. And the best part about this dish is that you could eat it right out of the skillet if you were just cooking it for yourself or your family. I chose to take the dish to a dinner party, which made cutting it up and removing it from the skillet slightly difficult, but it is totally worth it.
