Star-Spangled Lemon Whoopie Pies with Berries and Cream

I’m a born-and-raised New Englander, so I’ve been eating (and loving) whoopie pies for as long as I can remember. But I don’t think everyone everywhere is as familiar with the whoopie pie. My college roommate (at a New England school but from a different part of the country) looked…

Summer Berry Avocado Salad with Mango Vinaigrette

I’m loving this fresh berry and avocado salad lately. It’s super nutritious but also tastes heavenly, with rich and creamy avocado, plus fresh and tart summer berries, plus crunchy pine nuts, plus sweet and velvety homemade mango vinaigrette.

And topped with a can of Campbell’s Cream of Broccoli Soup. It’s a classic. Easy, convenient, rich, hot-from-the-oven comfort food… …So lately…

Skinny “Overloaded” Potato Skins

Meat-and-Potatoes-Guy and I sometimes place an order for “Outrageous Potato Skins” from a nearby chain restaurant. They’re made of crispy fried potatoes, cheese, bacon.
