I love the simplicity of this salad. It tastes professional but is incredibly easy to prepare, and I love a recipe that requires very little effort.
The dressing is creamy, light and tangy which the perfect juxtaposition to the sweet dried cranberries, salty seeds and crunchy greens. It’s a wonderful combinations of flavors and textures. If you want something with a little of everything, this Gluten-Free Shredded Brussels Sprout & Spinach Salad is it!
Especially for Summer Pineapple Upside Down Cake is a fantastic alternative. It’s easy to make, moist yet fluffy, and a refreshing, light addition to any get together (or if you’re like us sweet tooth addiction).

But it’s still Summer and summertime calls for popsicles! With a good mold (and a bit of patience) homemade popsicles can easily be created AND enjoyed! And Summer is the perfect time for fruit-based popsicles because so many delicious, juicy fruits are in season.Read More
