Sweet Heat Salmon

The easiest and possibly most flavorful salmon ever. This is one meal that is definitely on a weekly routine at our house. We can’t get enough of the salty and spicy flavor combo. Not to mention our love for Asian food (sushi, Thai, Chinese, anything really). This has the comfort of Chinese takeout but also delivers the punch of a healthy, home-cooked meal. Read More

Chicken Enchiladas Verdes

There is a restaurant here in town that serves the best Enchiladas Verdes, or Green Enchiladas. When I go there, it’s really the only thing I order. The sauce is the most delectable, yummy sauce that you could just eat with a spoon. And they drizzle the enchiladas with Mexican Crema (similar to a thin sour cream). After a few attempts, I figured out the trick to the sauce: chicken bouillon. The bouillon gives the sauce this salty flavor that is so irresistible. I roast fresh tomatillos, garlic and jalapeño, then simmer in a large pan with water and chicken bouillon. Read More

Greek Salmon Burgers with Creamy Dill Sauce

I am currently sitting in a deer blind in 40°F weather and it’s misting cold rain outside. Lee loves to hunt. Actually that’s an understatement. He lives for it. So this is what we do, us hunting wives. We throw on our camo and big coats, pour a big glass of coffee or red wine, and go sit in the blind to support our loved ones. Sure I grew up hunting and I do love it, but honestly this cold weather makes me want to be back at the house, in my warm sweater cooking a hearty, warm dinner. Read More

​Roasted Salmon Grain Bowls with Lemon Vinaigrette

This bowl is inspired by a salad I used to grab for lunch all the time at Central Market. Since I don’t work close to Central Market anymore, I decided to take matters into my own hands and make this dish for myself. These bowls serve great as dinners or prepped as lunch for the week. The dressing is so delectable I could eat it with a spoon, and everything is baked on one baking sheet except for the farro. It’s so easy you have no excuse not to make these hearty bowls! Read More
