Summer Cucumber Salad

I whipped this up tonight in order to use up a bunch of veggies that needed to get gone. My mother-in-law has a huge garden and lately I have been finding myself wanting to experiment with new and creative ways to gobble them up.

This summer cucumber salad is a no-brain recipe that tastes fresh and crisp. I think you’ll love it!


-2 large cucumbers
-8 roma tomatoes
-1/2 large yellow union
-10 fresh basil leaves
-garlic salt

Seed the cucumbers and tomatoes, dice. Finely chop the onion and basil. Mix all ingredients together in bowl. Season with garlic salt and pepper. Chill several hours or overnight. Enjoy, XOXO!

Balsamic Glazed Chicken Breasts

If you read my first recipe post, you are well aware that I enjoy dabbling in easy recipes. Here is another one I recently tried in my own kitchen. It turned out great and I think you’ll love it too, XOXO.



-4 Chicken Breasts

-1/2 Cup Balsamic Vinegar

-2 Tbsp Minced Garlic

-1 Medium Onion

-1 Tbsp Brown Sugar


Place chicken in ziploc bag or large bowl. Add balsamic vinegar, garlic, chopped onion, and brown sugar. Marinade in the refrigerator overnight. The next day, pour the contents of bag or bowl on foil-lined baking sheet. Bake for 25 minutes at 375*. Enjoy!!!
