Celebration Week

Welcome to celebration week

What are we celebrating? Well, as Bella so perfectly is modeling, 1,000 Instagram followers since the blog’s re-launch in late March (when it had 100) as well as my birthday and my dad’s!

But in true Carmel Kama’aina style, we’re going to celebrate with one of my favorite foods, salad. And prove it’s anything but a boring, bland health food!

This week you’ll be making

An often avoided “too healthy” salad

A salad true to my Hawaiian roots

A salad honoring my Italian heritage

Cheesy Tortellini & Sausage Soup

One of my favorite easy meals to date has been my gnocchi soup. This is its meatier cousin, tortellini and sausage soup! Same idea— slightly heartier flavor 🙂

Sheet Pan “Cobb” Salad

A ONE-pan recipe yielding a truly one-of-a-kind Cobb salad. Simply throw half your ingredients in the oven for 20 min, the other half in your bowl, and you’re good to go (have your taste buds & mind blown)!
