These tasty roasted vegetables can be cooked on the grill or roasted in the oven! The pineapple adds a wonderful sweetness to the vegetables.

Incredible! 5.0/5
(1 rating)

Before you start: This recipe needs the night to marinate.
Kids, caterers and college students just can't get enough of these curly, slurpy, yummy noodles!
In this addictive salad the noodles are used uncooked then left overnight to absorb the dressing made with their spice packets.
The sodium is still out of hand in this recipe but I tried to make everything as raw and healthy as possible other than that.
The Birch Sugar or Xylitol in this recipe is a sugar substitute. It works 1:1 ratio as sugar and is safe for people but not for doggies (like chocolate).
*I'm thinking of adding edamame to the mix as well. I will update after I try it.

COOKING WITH CAITLIN'S Gazpacho
Very Good 4.2/5
(13 ratings)

I think that gazpacho is quite the refreshing soup option--especially in the summer. It goes well with a simple sandwich as well as something a little fancier and off the grill. Not only that, but it is actually pretty healthy for you as well--gazpacho is made up of all kinds of different veggies.

Spinach-and-Orange Salad with Almonds and Sweet-Sesame Dressing
Very Good 4.8/5
(15 ratings)

This is a nice spinach salad with oranges and almonds and the sweet-sesame dressing can be used as a great dip for raw veggies, spring rolls, and dumplings. The calories will be less if you use low-sodium soy sauce but they didn't have that listed.

SP_Stepf's Summer Kitchen Sink Pasta
Very Good 4.4/5
(34 ratings)

Maybe I should have called this my "Summer Farmers Market Pasta." It's full of the vegetables I brought home from the farmers market on Saturday. Like many of my recipes, it can be altered based on what you've got on hand. I almost threw in some Swiss chard (my green of choice these days) and some brilliant yellow crookneck squash, but I decided to save those for another day and another dish.
