A couple of weeks ago I was blog surfing while jotting down a quick grocery list when this recipe, by the fabulous cookbook author, Alison Lewis, popped into my reader. A beautiful, simple salmon salad. Nice! So, I skipped out to the store and picked up some canned Alaskan pink salmon, just like she suggested. […]

Grilled Salmon with Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Garden Wild Rice (Longest Title Ever)

Mission accomplished! We successfully managed to scrounge up whatever was left in the fridge, pantry and garden for a quick “gettin’-out-of-town-for-a-few-days” dinner. Well, when I say “we,” I actually mean Aaron. You see, all day long yesterday I felt completely dried up on dinner ideas. (After my delicious lunch that is.) On the verge of […]

Smoked Cod Soup

I know it’s 100 degrees out. I know it’s mid-June. I know the staple outfit these days is a bikini. I know most of you are firing up your grill tonight. I know. I still wanted soup for dinner. It’s my kitchen, I can soup if I want to. Yeah, that only sort of works, […]

Today I went the extra mile to prove to my husband that I do in fact love him. We went, and I’m not kidding, to the Street League Skateboarding Championship at the Sprint Center. Skateboarding. Let me remind you, I’m FEMALE. AND 34. In the 15,000 people that attended, there was only 1 other female, […]

So I’m approximately 32 episodes into “Take Home Chef” with Curtis Stone and I have one thing to say. YOWZA. I’d SO be okay with taking him home for an afternoon. I mean have you seen his hair? Heard that nervous Aussie giggle? Experienced that smile? Those arms? I MEAN UHHHHHH, I’d LOVE to just […]

If there is one thing in life that is absolutely certain, it is that fish + wine + saffron + garlic + tomatoes = a love like none other. Remember the feeling you got when you stared for hours on end at Joey McIntyre on your New Kids On The Block poster? This is going […]

Fish Tacos. Yes Please.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. My heart belongs to tacos. Okay, tacos and Aaron. I mean Aaron and tacos. Taron and Aacos. This is called “having issues.” Fish Tacos: What it took for 2: * 4 frozen tilapia filets, thawed, pat dry and cut into 1/2-inch sticks * ½ an onion, […]

Mahi Mahi – Easy Peasy

Aaaah, tonight’s dinner takes me back. It reminds me of my mid-twenties when I spent some time in Greece. (I’ve never been to Greece.) Back when I was eagerly studying multiple foreign languages abroad. (Yeah, that never happened either.) Back when I spent all of my free time with Jamie Oliver galavanting along the pebbly […]

A Snow Poem

A blanket of white covers the city. I still had to work, oh what a pity. The heater and fireplace will work on overdrive. A 1 million dollar heating bill just to survive. I’m really okay with the snow, as long as I’m inside. Put me behind the wheel and I’ll immediately go blind. I’m […]
