Winter Salad with Chickpea Croutons
The Best Winter Salad You’ll Ever Eat

It's no secret that I love salads. I’m totally crazy about them, I crave them more than anything else in my entire kitchen, fridge, or pantry. But, even though I’m madly in love with them, in winter time there are days I just do not feel like having one. The vegetables are uninspiring and a bowl of greens leaves me feeling cold and empty. Well not anymore!

Potato and Cilantro Soup
Delicious & Easy Potato Cilantro Soup

In my family the conversation around the table is food, recipes, dishes, and ingredients... we are a foodie family. I remember as a child I always heard food talk. My mom, grandma, and aunts were always (well, most of the time) talking about food. What they ate, what they prepared, what kind of craving they had, and what they were going to prepare during the week. Recipe sharing was always going on and it was never a formal thing. The quantities were: a little, a pinch, eyeball it. And still now, when I want to prepare a family recipe, no one remembers the original version.
