Refreshing Fennel and Carrot Salad

Garden Salads For Summertime Meals

What could be a more refreshing dish to compliment your favorite grilled dishes, deck dinners, or even a to-go salads for picnics, beach or boating with a Lunch In A Jar.

Fennel brings the refreshing flavors, carrots – the substance, and the addition of dried sour cherries is… well, the cherry on top!

Fennel and Carrots In My Garden

 These ingredients are available nearly year round, but we particularly enjoy their crisp freshness with our favorite grilled dishes.

For this reason I tried growing them in a small area in my yard. I am new to gardening but I can’t express the joy I felt to see these beautiful, sometimes expensive vegetables grow with little care right in my own yard.

My Muffin Madness


In my family, I’ve always been known as the ‘Muffin Queen’. Out of necessity, I created muffins for breakfast, lunch, on the go snacks, sometimes dinner and a sweet yet healthyish treat for dessert!
