Magic Salad


2 large tomatoes, diced

1 can black beans

1 can sweet corn

1 small purple onion, diced

1 cucumber, diced

1 6-oz container feta cheese

1 tsp. minced garlic

1/2 c. red wine vinegar

1/3 tsp. powdered garlic

1/4 tsp. onion powder (optional)

Salt and pepper to taste


>   Combine all ingredients but the feta in a large bowl. Sprinkle feta on top when ready to serve.

NOTE: A fairly guilt-free overeat, but rest assured, it will be one. I’ve made two batches since discovering this, and ate it all without so much as a thought to share. Not sorry.


Wavy Chip S’mores


1 bag wavy potato chips

1 bag marshmallows

1 or more large Hershey™ milk chocolate bars OR a jar of Nutella™ (or both!)


>   Make s’mores as usual, top with either a piece of chocolate or a smear of Nutella™.

>   Place between two sturdy chips.

Disclaimer: When your family is expecting a grandson that is to be named Telemachus Sackett Story, (“Tel” Story), you make sure mama is happily satisfied in the craving department. By the way, I am not willing to be responsible for this delectable invention…I only wish I’d heard of it far sooner.
