Chipotle Chicken Caesar Salad

Chipotle Chicken Caesar Salad | Get Inspired Everyday!

Chipotle Caesar Salad is the spicy cousin to the classic version. It’s an utterly delicious change of pace from the normal. You can make it as mild or spicy as you would like. I wrote the recipe for a mild amount of spice, but I like as much heat as possible for more chipotle flavor. We’re a little addicted to Caesar Salad, but I can’t decide which one is my favorite. Let me know which one you like more!

Avocado Face Mask and Hair Treatment

Avocado Face Mask and Hair Treatment | Get Inspired Everyday!

Recently, I had the good luck to receive 21 avocados from a friend in San Diego and I’ve been having so much fun eating them and making beauty treatments. Avocados and Avocado oil are very beneficial to the skin. They contain many vitamins and minerals: vitamin A, some of the vitamin B’s, vitamin D, vitamin E, beta-carotene, lethicin, and potassium. Vitamin A in particular is known as the beauty vitamin because it helps protect the skin from damage, keeping your skin looking younger!

Kootenai Falls

Kootenai Falls | Get Inspired Everyday!

Kootenai Falls is the largest falls in Montana plummeting over 40 feet, and 90 feet total over the course of a mile. In the spring, the water flows so fast that the water roars. The beautiful glacier blue colors come from the river carving it’s way through the glaciers of British Columbia. I’ve been to Kootenai Falls many times over the years and it never disappoints.

Kale Pesto with Vegetable Noodles

Kale Pesto with Vegetable Noodles | Get Inspired Everyday!

Kale Pesto is an unlikely deliciousness and it came about as many good ideas do – at Farmer’s Market! It finally occurred to me that kale could be used for something other than Green Smoothies. I asked one of my favorite farmers how she prepares it, and she said she makes pesto with it. Now that’s an idea I probably wouldn’t have ever had on my own!

How To Plant Your Own Spaghetti Pot

How To Plant Your Own Spaghetti Pot | Get Inspired Everyday!

I first started doing vegetable pots for one of my clients a few years ago. I was so pleased with the results that I wanted to try one out for myself! In this planter I have all of the ingredients to make a fresh tomato-vegetable sauce (think Gazpacho for pasta or cucumber noodles). The planter may look a little sparse when you finish, but trust me your plants will use up that space. Cherry Tomatoes are what they call ‘indeterminant’ which means they grow like crazy and even need to be trimmed back sometimes for more abundant fruit.

My husband declared these ‘better than my favorite potato chips’! They have that sweet-salty thing going on with just a hint of spicy, and the addictive depth of flavor from the curry spices. That’s why they’ve quickly become our new favorite snack. It’s a bonus that they are really quick and easy to make.

Meat Lover’s Pizza Burgers

Meat Lover's Pizza Burgers | Get Inspired Everyday!

The idea for this Meat Lover’s Pizza Burger formed in my head while standing in line at Costco. A couple of us started talking about what we were going to make with the gigantic packages of 6 portabello mushrooms we were buying. One woman said that she likes to use them instead of buns for her hamburger and the other woman said that she likes to make mini pizzas. On my way out the door, the light bulb finally popped on, and I thought “why not have both?” So… here we are with a Pizza Burger, you never know what kind of yumminess will evolve at the grocery store.

Farmer’s Market

Farmer's Market | Get Inspired Everyday!

The first Farmer’s Market of the year is much anticipated. I got a little spoiled with a year-round market in Calgary, so waiting all winter really builds the excitement for the first market of the season! Everything looks so enticing that I get a little carried away and buy more than I need, but that’s okay because we eat more vegetables that way! With so much produce I end up making all-vegetable meals for a couple of days, to use everything. Today we’re going to have Asparagus with Kale Pesto (working on a recipe).
