While the chipotle sour cream is such a cinch to make, preparing it over the weekend can make this meal so weeknight friendly with hardly any prep at all. The combination of smokey grilled fish, sweet, lightly charred pineapple, crunchy cabbage and chipotle sour cream is seriously so dreamy you guys! Continue reading
Friends! Hello! How are we? We’ve nearly made it through January, the most grey month of the year, in my opinion…so the rest is all downhill from here, right? We just returned home from a vacation with my entire side of the family you guys….what a way to break up the month. We had such a great time and enjoyed the warm weather of the Bahamas so incredibly much. And now…back to good old reality. But gosh I have to admit, a solid routine and well rested kids feels pretty dang good.
So to go with this grey month, how about a rich, gooey, comforting pasta dish that you can get on the table in 20 minutes? Yes? Yes. Let’s do it! Continue reading
Guys, you know I love a good Asian dish. And you know that my husband is a bit meh about that whole deal-he’s an Italian food junkie. But these salmon and rice bowls? His fave. Totally worthy of your meal rotation, promise!
The coconut rice is a total winner around our home.. .my kids adore it and it pairs wonderfully with basically any protein. So I started these bowls with a base of that sweet, perfectly cooked rice. Continue reading
Monday, you’re back. Back to rushing home to get dinner on the table, no? Man that can be such a lame feeling. So let me give you a little hookup to make that process a bit easier this week: Pan Seared Salmon with Quick Dill Yogurt Sauce.
You can have this one on the table in less than 15-hows that for quick? All the salmon needs about 8-10 minutes on the stove. Total score. Continue reading
How was the weekend? It’s officially spring, friends..congratulations..you’ve made it! I’m feeling awfully grateful that ‘technical’ winter is behind us…now if we could just get these temps (and random bouts of snow) out of the equation.
So with spring comes lighter food, which I am feeling so ready for. You know I’m all about soups, stews and gratins but there comes a point in time when a change of food is in order…and around here our changes in food tend to come and go with the seasons. Continue reading
I once wrote an article about the positives of having a traveling husband. And I totally forgot to include a very important perk.
When your husband travels, particularly to Seattle, he feels terribly bad that you are missing out on all the ‘fun’ so he has fresh fish from Pike Place Market sent home for you. That Nickyboy. He’s a total winner. Continue reading
Let’s just get right to it. I’m not a cod girl. Never have been, never will be. It just doesn’t do much for me. Unless its battered. And deep fried. And doused in a lip puckering dunking sauce of deliciousness. Then I’m a cod girl.
So thats what I’ve done here with this recipe. I’ve ‘battered’ it. And ‘deep fried’ it. And doused it in a lip puckering dunking sauce of deliciousness. Without truly battering it. And without deep frying it. Shh…my family has no idea! Continue reading
We tend to buy frozen salmon in bulk so with a plethora of it in the freezer I really have to try to be creative when using it; I can only eat so many basic baked, roasted or grilled salmon filets. Sometimes in needs a bit of an “upgrade”, per say. Aside from this awesome chowder, these Pan Roasted Salmon Cakes are a go to for me. They are bright and decadent and pan roasting gives them such a rich flavor; my 3 year old is proof that even non-salmon lovers will go back for seconds. Continue reading
