Good Morning!  

I hope everyone had a great Mother’s day filled with lots of RELAXATION and good food 🙂

I made the EASIEST pasta salad ever.  I got this recipe from my friend Lindsey and it has been a hit ever since!  You basically just throw all the ingredients together in a bowl and wala, you are done!

Cheesy Tortellini Pasta Salad



  • 26 oz. Cheesy Tortellini – I used one big pack and one small pack
  • 1  (5 oz.)  package grape tomatoes
  • 1  container basil pesto- (I made my own from Wildtree)
  • 1  (10 oz.) package Fat Free or Low Fat Feta Cheese

pasta salad


  • Cook Tortellini according to package instructions.  Drain and Cool.
  • Slice Grape Tomatoes in half and add to salad.
  • Mix in feta cheese
  • Add pesto last, stir to incorporate all the ingredients
  • Enjoy!

This makes a HUGE batch, enough for probably 10-15 people.  We have tons of leftovers for tonight’s dinner!

We also had veggies and BBQ pork Sandwiches.


I use Stubb’s BBQ sauce because it is All natural and doesn’t contain high fructose corn syrup.  I love the flavor!



Almond Power Cookies that I made yesterday and Lightened up Blueberry Crisp adapted from this recipe

Lightened Up Blueberry Crisp

After baking I turned on the broiler to brown the top and I left it in too long and the top burned! 😦   I scraped off most of the black topping but still had some crumble left.  It still tasted great according to everyone.

Topped with a little bit of Breyer’s vanilla ice cream (no sugar added)
