I love recipes that combine oats and coconut.I know that it is not one of the first flavor combinations that come to mind. But I have tried it in  biscotti, cookies, granola and every time the coconut transforms the oatmeal from good old earthy and boring to nutty and interesting.

Southwestern salad with creamy parsley dressing

I love making my own salad dressings, there is so much room for creativity and if you are a little adventurous you will be rewarded with amazing flavor combinations. The best part about making salad dressings  as opposed to buying them is that you know exactly what goes into your dressing, no preservatives, no additives and no chemicals you can’t pronounce let alone eat!
