Pasta Salad

Hello y’all! As always, I try to share the easy and simple recipes since we know who the chef is in the family (it is not me). So, this week’s recipe is pasta salad. What a wonderful invention this dish is it is cold, so you don’t have to heat it up. It also makes great leftovers for that reason and lunches and another plus is it makes a ton of food and its cheap to make. This is my go-to for potlucks or for weeks when I don’t want to prep lunches. Pasta salad is also one of those dishes that you can tweak and make it all your own. Daniel and I hate olives and I don’t like tomatoes and those are staples for most pasta salads but, that is the beauty of this dish you can make it how you want it. However, my pasta salad is not super traditional, but I always receive complements and requests for it!

Here is a quick look at all my ingredients.

I always add a little olive oil while I boil pasta it helps them stay tender and not stick together.

The finished product! It makes a ton and everyone is sure to love it.

Crinkle Cookies

Since this is my first recipe, I thought I’d start with Daniel’s favorite dessert that I make. Their called crinkle cookies and for good reason you will see with the pictures provided they look crinkled. Don’t let that deter you! They are super easy to make and taste great. I make these year round and for added fun I change the food coloring I use to correspond with the holiday or time of the year.

These are perfect for pot lucks, birthdays, holidays, or just a fun weekend with the family. You name it and these can be made for that event. I’ve never had anyone be disappointed when I bring them and in fact people ask me to make them often.

My Crinkle Cookies are sweet, light, and fluffy. I hope you love them as much as my family does!

Here is a picture of the Easter cookies I made for this years family egg hunt. They were a big hit!
