Blog This Blog That...A Short Introduction

A Little Hello
Time to get started, I suppose. First off, this probably won't be a daily blog style, more of a post as I can due to my schedule, but hopefully it'll give you a nice taste of the meals and desserts I've happily grown up with. As well as learning the ropes of how to work the blog...Be on the lookout as I'm sure formatting will continue to change.I hope to use this as a place to share some good recipes with others and learn to improve upon my own cooking skills! After all, the best way to learn is by doing, correct? As an Occupational Therapist I will say, it is important to engage in occupations that we find interesting and meaningful to help improve our everyday quality of life! It just so happens, for me, I am interested in cooking/baking, and writing (So kill two birds with one stone here!). With that all said, I welcome you here, and hope you can find a recipe or two that you throughly enjoy (and can put your own spin on). Happy food hunting :)

Ambrosia Salad

I'd actually forgotten about this delicious desert until my mom mentioned it a few days ago. It used to be one of my and my brother's favorite summer salads. Simple and delicious, this cold salad is perfect for picnics and small gatherings!

can of pineapple
can of mandarin oranges
about 3/4 cup of coconut 
1 bag mini marshmellows
1/2 container of sour cream

Drain the pineapple and mandarin oranges.  In a medium bowl mix together the marshmellows, pineapple, mandarin oranges, and coconut. Finally add the sour cream and mix once more until well blended. If the mixture isn't creamy enough add a little bit more sour cream. 

Final Thoughts
That's pretty much all the salad is. Make the salad early and let it chill in the refrigerator for best results. Makes a wonderful side dish! Hope you enjoy. Happy eats!
