    Gotta love a good Alton recipe! He is my go to for many things. If he made it, I know there is scientific basis for why it should taste good haha.

    I’m glad you found food and started this blog as well, although I’m sure you helped so many souls through your work with CPS.

      Joanne, I agree with you on that about Alton — hard to argue with science! Thanks for your comment about CPS. There were definitely some huge success stories over the years while I worked as a social worker and I’m glad I was able to help many families and children.

    Hi Lacey
    thanks for stopping by my blog and waving hello! that is so sweet.
    I love your food photos and how crisp you make everything look ~ beautiful. Your photos make me want to cook everything you make and it’s that time of year when I can get most of these ingredients straight from the farmer of my own backyard. the salad looks yummy and healthy, thanks for sharing!

    Yeah, you had me at “Bacon Dressing”! I’m definitely going to try this and I love that you used a poached egg to top it off because I think poached eggs can go on practically anything!

      Peggy, right? I’m with you on the bacon dressing. Yum. I’m glad you like the poached egg with the salad. I really need to include them more often in my cooking — they are so good!

    You know, now that I look through all your WONDERFUL recipes, I was wondering if you have ever made an “Asian Chop Chop” salad? compliments of Houlihans :) It’s amazing!

    Sometime you should try Alton Brown’s Garden Vegetable Soup. Takes a little bit of time, but it is soooo good.

    Hi Lacey,
    I just joined upon your site and am extremely impressed…bravo for you! I am having the spinach salad with warm bacon dressing tonight, and I know it is going to turn out great. I am in the process of downloading your cookbook and can hardly wait to see the recipes.
    I am a food junkie who loves to try out new recipes on guests. Anyone who eats at my house is a never gets the same thing twice and they are all guinea pigs. ;-)
    Keep up the great work on your blog, it’s wonderful!
