It's no secret. My nine year old, Ella is a super picky eater. Even though she's picky, I can't complain a whole lot. She dislikes pizza, chips and other foods that kids usually love, and loves fruits, veggies, salads and pastas. Dinner is a struggle, so we decided to get in the kitchen and start cooking together.

Happy spring everyone! Spring makes me think of picnics and BBQ's! Although it's still a little cold to be doing both of those activities, I have an amazing pasta salad recipe to share for now, or when it's nicer outside! I also have seven other delicious chicken recipes from my blogger friends and you can find links to those after my recipe!

I must confess. I have a huge obsession with balsamic vinegar. Well, any vinegar really, but especially balsamic. Tonight for a snack, I sliced some grape tomatoes, sprinkled with salt and pepper, and topped with some Trader Joe's Balsamic. Oh so good. Balsamic reduction is even better, but I'll use it right out of the bottle when I don't have extra time. My sister Shantel and I would even drink it by the spoonful. I'm so serious! Haha!
