Asian Salmon with slaw

Salmon is one of my go to summer meals. It cooks really quick and these days I need all the extra time I can get. Things like school graduation planning, sports practices and field trip meetings have been cramping my cooking style. I made this the other night and all of a sudden the weather turned warm. […]

Eggplant Parmesan

There is something about the weather getting warmer that makes me want to cook vegetarian meals. I could eat these eggplant Parmesan rounds once a week. It doesn’t even bother me that I have to turn my oven on. It’s much better than frying on the stove and also so much healthier. Make sure to […]

Lemon Dill Roasted Salmon

April 27, 2016

I grew up eating a lot of fish. My dad was from an island in Croatia so it was not uncommon for him to be grilling whole fish, eyeballs still intact and all. While my friends got to eat fish sticks at their houses, none of that was to be found at mine. Fish sticks […]

Simple Roasted Brussels Sprouts

March 21, 2016

While Brussels sprouts seem more like a fall or winter vegetable, I love eating them all year round. I’ve noticed lately that they are on plenty of restaurant menus and are all the rage in food magazines. A few weeks ago we even ordered them off a happy hour menu.

Ranch Salmon

Dinnertime at our house can be a little hectic. It is not uncommon to be sitting down at the table at 8pm. We try not to eat that late often but it happens. I feel that it is important my family sits down to several meals a week together. It can’t happen every night but I try for several […]

There is a little chill in the air. This morning it was a sunny 52 degrees out. I love how it will still get in the 80’s during the day but cools way down by dinner time. This means low humidity and that it’s time to make a big pot of soup. It’s been a while […]

Preserved Lemon and Caper Shrimp

I jumped on the scale the other day and thought someone was playing a joke on me. I turned quickly and thought my husband or son had their foot on the edge on the scale. There was no foot to be found. Husband? Son? Daughter? Dog? Nope! Just me and my big ole butt. How could […]
