This Cobb Salad is a flavor explosion with crispy bacon, tangy blue cheese, fresh tomatoes, avocado, green onions, hard boiled eggs nestled on a bed of romaine lettuce and drizzled with an easy blue cheese vinaigrette.  And in case you didn't notice, it has my favorite pasta, orzo, to give it a unique twist!
Easy Orzo Cobb Salad

Summer time is salad time and today this beauty is going to be your new favorite one!  It has all your traditional flavors plus the addition of tender orzo pasta.  Call me crazy but I love the texture of pasta in salads - must be the Italian in me! Whether you want this as a side dish or a main course, just be sure to make it soon and watch it disappear.  You, your family and guests will enjoy this easy to make dish and ask for seconds!

Lemon Poppy Seed No Churn Ice Cream

Lemon poppy seed no churn ice cream is so refreshing!  It has fresh lemon juice and zest to give it tangy lemon flavor - a perfect summer frozen treat!!  And made super easy, since it is no churn!

The Best Lemon Poppy Seed No Churn Ice Cream!
Today we have a happy marriage of two of my favorite things - lemons and ice cream!  Have you ever made ice cream that is no churn? Maybe not?  Well, me either, until today.  I have in the past used my trusty Kitchen Aid ice cream maker, but thought I would give a try at no churn ice cream and now I know what I have been missing out on.  Super easy to make, freezes up to a perfect texture and is so creamy.  My kind of easy ice cream recipe!
