Summer Strawberry Rosemary Sangria

Sangria is definitely one of my favorite drinks. It’s super delicious and easy to make.

You can add any type of fruit you like. I had some strawberries, lime, and oranges I needed to use, and I thought that would make a great combo for summer. Well, it’s not actually summer yet, but close enough.

Grilled Fruit Skewers

Fire up the grill for this yumminess! I have never been good at making desserts, but sometimes I surprise myself.

Dessert recipes seem to require me to actually measure things. I am more of a throw it together kind of girl. Well this throw it together dessert is so easy and delicious I will be making this again very soon!

Chicken Salad Recipe

Looking for something different for lunch?  This chicken salad full of fruit and nuts will keep you feeling full.  It tastes great on rye and pumpernickel bread, on a bed of lettuce, with crackers for a snack, or how I like to eat it, right off a spoon!

Chicken Salad


  • 2 large chicken breasts, boiled and shredded, or a rotisserie chicken shredded
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 1/4 cup red or white onion, diced
  • 1 apple, diced
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup walnuts or sliced almonds
  • 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons mayo, I used the kind with olive oil
  • 1/2 a lemon
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Boil chicken breast in water and some salt and pepper until cooked through. About 20 minutes depending on the size of the chicken. Cool and  shred the chicken with 2 forks. A rotisserie chicken from the grocery store would work too.
  2. In a large bowl mix chicken, celery, onion, apple, cranberries, nuts, yogurt, mayo, and lemon juice. The yogurt and mayo can be adjusted to taste. Salt and pepper to taste. The longer the chicken salad marinades the better it tastes.
  3. Serve as a sandwich, or on a bed of lettuce.
