Rustic Spinach & Shrimp Salad

Fancy Fork: Rustic Spinach & Shrimp Salad - made by Hubs!

Bagel Quiches

Breakfast Trend: Bagel Quiches | Fancy Fork

You always hear people say to enjoy the simple things in life. For Hubs and I, that’s a bagel quiche and a piping hot coffee curled up on the couch on a Sunday morning.

A chili that’s ready to eat within an hour, with no slow cooker or hours of simmering needed? Sold!

And makes for fantastic leftovers.

Chilled Kale & Potato Soup

What’s for lunch? Oh, just Chilled Kale & Potato Soup.

When out for dinner, I always feel really trendy when I order chilled soup (or gazpacho) as an appetizer. You can imagine how I felt when I made it at home: swanky and ready to host a dinner party! In all seriousness, making this chilled kale soup was super easy and ended up being fabulous leftovers. 

It’s loaded with healthy kale and roasted potatoes, to give it some density. I topped Hubs and…
