{Nourish} Chicken Salad with Grapes and Dill

Chicken Salad with Grapes and Dill @KatieCavutoRDIt’s been a while. I know. I have broken so many blogger rules by simply peacing out but hey, I am getting over all of those shoulds and embracing real life. My family needed me. I needed me. So, the blog, it had to wait. But, I am back and we are day three into a brand-new school routine. Hudson started kindergarten this week and after months of worrying about how he was going to deal with the transition…he is all smiles and I am the one that is exhausted. Ha! Now that we are out the door in an hour in the mornings, planning ahead has become more essential than ever. I get a pass on packing Hudson’s lunch for now (he has to eat at school which is a whole rant in itself) which gives me a bit more time to pack my own. No, I am not making chicken salad from scratch at 7 am, but I am making a batch at the beginning of each week and you can too!  Continue reading “{Nourish} Chicken Salad with Grapes and Dill”

{Nourish} Maple + Mustard Chicken with Balsamic Roasted Figs & Grapes

Maple Roasted Chicken, balsamic roasted figs and grapes
Roasted Figs are divine. They evoke wonderful memories for me as well. My pop-pop-pop (great grandfather) used to have a fig tree in his back yard. Fresh off the tree–they were like candy! While I enjoy them as a healthy sweet treat I also love to include them in savory dishes. The growing season for figs is coming to a close but fortunately they are always available dried and that works just as well for this dish. Major Bonus: The Maple and Mustard Chicken Recipe is a stand-alone dish you can easily add to your weekly repertoire. If you don’t have figs on hand that is okay! Serve it as it or try roasted apples, pears or even roasted grapes (which we added to this dish) to top it off!
