Fall flavors + pancetta = yum




Currently, I'm located in Hot Springs, Arkansas, working remotely through late February. I'll explain that more later this week, but for now I'll focus on the weather here. We had a "cold spell" here, also known as having a daytime high of mid

Nectarine & Strawberry Salad with Mint

Bright, fresh, and slightly sweet!


While we're a few weeks into my theme of fall foods, this recipe may seem odd. However, once in a while it is nice to mix things up; pretend that it isn't as chilly as the thermometer says. Food is one of the

A fruity take on the Italian classic.




In early August, I spent a week in the Mohawk Valley of New York teaching entrepreneurship to a group of middle school-aged students. Being away from home, I ate at a restaurant every night. One of those nights I was sent to

Just like Mom used to make it, kinda




On Tuesday I re-posted the first cucumber salad recipe I shared on Think Tasty. In the introduction I referenced today's salad as new. In all fairness, this isn't a new recipe at all. It's just new to Think Tasty. My

Nice and creamy, but also nice and healthy.




It's only been a year since I initially shared this recipe, but it is a perfect partner for this week's new recipe. This recipe for Creamy Cucumber Salad is my favorite version of cucumber salad. The new recipe, which I'll publish

Strawberry Rhubarb Salad

A delicious duo of spring produce




As spring draws to an end in New Hampshire, we have some local produce available. With a winter that stretched well into March, seeing freshly picked fruits and veggies in the market is exciting. Rhubarb and fiddleheads are among the first produce items

Healthy Thai Salad with Chicken

by Michele Pesula Kuegler June 7th, 2018| Healthy Cooking, Recipes, Salads

Why can't cabbage be the base for a salad?




When I think about creating a new green salad, I usually begin with romaine, kale, or some other version of lettuce. As I considered making a Thai style salad, my mind went to cabbage. Don't ask me why, but I

Blueberry & Chicken Salad

A berry-licious entrée salad




One of the things that I love about summer is the omnipresence of salads. Although I enjoy salads throughout the year, they appear less frequently on the menu in cooler months. Who really wants a big salad for dinner when there's a snowstorm raging outside?

Who knew that oranges could be such a good part of slaw?




Just two weeks ago I was writing about ch-alad, my original creation of a combined chili salad, which was perfect for the chilly yet warm days of spring. And now here we are in May, and the

Kale & Quinoa Salad

All sorts of yumminess in one dish.




One of the things that I like about this salad is its flexibility in serving temperature. Make it early in the day and let it hang out in the fridge until dinner, and it's delicious as a chilled salad. Make it when

Mexican Black Bean Salad

by Michele Pesula Kuegler April 24th, 2018| Healthy Cooking, Recipes, Salads

An easy side dish to accompany tacos.




As I reread the intro to this recipe, I laughed to myself that my go-to when my husband travels is to cook with legumes. The theme of cooking with legumes and for myself seems to be omnipresent. I've always loved time in
