The Best Home Made Pizza & Pasta Sauce

Sweet and spicy and low in calories, plus so much better than any jarred sauce! I adapted this sauce from the recipe Pineapple Onion and Bacon Pizza: SparkRecipes Un-Chained Recipe Contest Finalist. I've tried a lot of home made sauces and this one is by far my favorite!

Balsamic Onion Relish

I love this as a condiment on burgers, served with chicken, or in a million other ways. LOVE IT!

Summertime Bean & Tomato Salad

Beans are a great source of fiber and once you've tried this salad you will be in love with beans! Using in season tomatoes and green beans makes this salad even more spectacular. I have used pinto beans and garbanzo beans in this salad and plan to try using other varieties as well. This recipe has been adapted from an Eating Well recipe.
