Iā€™m Sarah.

After graduating college, I worked as a TV news reporter at an NBC affiliate outside of Chicago. I then retired from that life to be a stay at home mom to my three little ones. While at home I was able to rekindle my love for decorating and crafts. A blog seemed like the perfect place to share those ideas. There is inspiration everywhere, I hope you find some here.

We love eating salads and the other night I made this apple citrus feta salad for dinner. It was a little bitter because of the arugula/feta combo, but it was still a really good salad. 

Apple Citrus Feta Salad

3 seedless oranges

6 cups baby arugula

1 red apple, cored and thinly sliced

3 tablespoons freshly squeezed orange juice

2 tablespoons EVOO

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper

1/2 cup crumbled feta 

1. Grate rind from 1 orange into a small bowl and set aside.

2. Peel all oranges and section. Reserve juice, squeezing more for the dressing if needed. Combine arugula, orange sections and apple in a large bowl.

3. Whisk 3 tablespoons orange juice, olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper with orange rind. Pour over salad and toss gently. Spoon onto serving plates and sprinkle with feta.
