With summer just around the corner, tomatoes are hitting their peak season! I love all the different colors and sizes of tomatoes durning the summer time, not to mention how sweet they get! This tomato and herb salad is something I make all the time at the beginning of the week because it is the perfect healthy snack.

Avocados are probably my favorite fruit. I love coming up with new ways to use them whether in a sauce, spread on toast or dip, although I could eat them plain all day long.

When you finally take them out of the oven after you have gotten to work on your to-do list you have the most amazing dinner. The chicken is fall off the bone tender, so flavorful and just delicious.
