Asparagus Wrapped with Prosciutto



These are simple to make and taste delicious too!  This makes an impressive looking side dish or appetizer and it only requires a few ingredients.   Asparagus is packed with healthy nutrients and is low carb too.  These can be made up ahead of time and then put in the oven at the last minute.

Cobb Salad



Making a restaurant-style Cobb salad is simple to do and tastes delicious too!  This salad is packed with protein that makes it very filling.  I like to use turkey bacon to make this healthier but regular bacon could also be used.  I also like to make this using a deli rotisserie chicken to save time.  Hope you enjoy this yummy salad!
