Roasted Beet Noodles with Yellow Tomatoes

Roasted Beet Noodles with Yellow Tomatoes.  Pasta the veggie way is so good, light and healthy.

The other day, I received an email from a lady who thanked me for helping her stick to a healthier eating plan. She was loving the review and giveaway I have going for the Spiralizer® and how easy it is to make vegetable “pasta.”  She spoke of challenges she had with her support system and that she wasn’t able to eat with them when they ate pasta and such and that I helped her with my blog.  I was so moved by her email that I decided to make spiraled roasted beet noodles just for her. So Char, this recipe is for you.

During the spring and summer months, we are outside. A lot.  On leisurely weekends, I like to sip my coffee in the yard and enjoy the morning sun. After work, I like to sit outside, maybe have a glass of wine and grill dinner. I usually use an old plastic cup to sip my wine or water since I don’t want to take my nice glasses outside. These silicone beverage cups from Ramini Brands® are perfect for this. No more worries about breaking glass and they’re good looking too.

Dial® Miracle Oil Body Wash Review & Giveaway

The Dial® brand provided me with a sample of Dial® Miracle Oil Body Wash in exchange for a product review. However, all opinions are 100% my own.

Dial Miracle Oil Body Wash Giveaway

All body washes are not created equal. I know that since some are very drying. I live in Utah and it’s quite dry here. Although we have a higher elevation, we’re still a desert and it’s dry. Winter is especially brutal on my skin since I’m indoors most of the time with the heater blasting.  When I was given an opportunity to review Dial® Miracle Oil Body Wash, I was all over that. Infused with Marula Oil, it promises to leave skin clean, soft and smooth.

Do you like salsa?  Do you like a litlte heat? This salsa is for you! The folks that brought you Salsa Dance DVD’s now have other products, including two salsas.  This one is kicked up a few notches with serrano peppers and is a deliciously chunky salsa that can be added to many of your dishes. When I was given the opportunity to review it, I jumped all over it.

Seven Layer Salad that's a snap to make. It even got my husband eating peas. Miracles DO happen!  www.lorisculinarycreations.com

Last month I attended BYBC here in salt lake and one of the nights, we had a food blogger dinner at The Lion House in downtown. Built in 1856, it sits right on the edge of Temple Square and it was once Brigham Young’s personal residence, so this place is steeped in history. Their claim to fame is their food is good old style home cooking from recipes passed down from generation to generation. They are known for their delicious Lion House Rolls which are heavenly!  I could just eat a whole basket of those. The dinner we had was salad, chicken with veggies and a blueberry dessert. But I was crushing on that salad. It had lettuce, peas, Swiss cheese and a yummy dressing. I had to replicate it. On the walk back to the hotel, one of the ladies said it was called Seven Layer Salad and it was a traditional Utah/Mormon salad. When I got home, I googled it and found the recipe online. Yay!  I did make a change to it, but it certainly was spot on.
