I can’’t help it... we had a great time! The resort we stayed at had the regular old buffets for all meals, as well as four specialty restaurants for dinner- a Steak House, Mexican, Asian and Italian cuisine. I wanted to try all the restaurants, but wasn’’t really expecting to enjoy or even find much I could eat at the Italian restaurant in particular. Well, I was wrong. The steak at the Italian restaurant was juicier and more flavorful than at the steak house, and they had salmon too. I really like salmon, but I usually prepare it in the same couple ways every time I make it. I was delighted to try it prepared with some dried fruits and nuts, which I had never thought to use. This is my variation, on the vacation salmon, using the dried fruit and nuts I had available in my pantry. This recipe is definitely easy enough to prepare for a dinner party and sure to please all! ]]> Za’atar Spiced Lamb Kabobs with Roasted Late Winter Vegetables Mon, 20 Aug 2018 16:46:26 +0000 Za’atar Spiced Lamb Kabobs with Roasted Late Winter VegetablesJuicy middle eastern spiced lamb kabobs with roasted late winter vegetables ]]> Murgh Masala Mon, 20 Aug 2018 16:46:26 +0000 Murgh MasalaTranslated, this is chicken in a gravy of tomato and onions. Two pieces of advice: don't cook the chicken through the first saute, just cook the pink off the outside, and don't be shy with the spices-- they are the beauty of Indian food, after all. If it was colder outside, I'd serve this with some thinly sliced potatoes fried up in coconut oil with turmeric and bell peppers-- but, it's spring in New Orleans, and raw sliced bell pepper proved to be much more refreshing. A drizzle of coconut oil on top, and this is a meal to fuel the rest of the day. ]]> Green Pork and Shiitake Sliders Mon, 20 Aug 2018 16:46:26 +0000 Green Pork and Shiitake SlidersHere’s another variation on my green sliders — this time with Asian flair, just like me! Seriously, my kids love these portable pucks and it makes me happy that they’re getting veggies and protein in each bite. First, I dumped a package of frozen spinach into a Corningware container - covered it with a lid, and nuked it on high for ~4 minutes to defrost it. Then, I dumped the spinach into a colander and pressed out all the liquid. I heated 1 tablespoon of coconut oil over medium heat in a large cast iron skillet and tossed in the chopped onions and mushrooms along with some salt and pepper to taste. The veggies were sautéed until the liquid had evaporated and the onions were softened. ]]> Asian-Style Lettuce Wraps Mon, 20 Aug 2018 16:46:26 +0000 Asian-Style Lettuce Wraps A fun, gluten-free dish full of fabulous flavors and fresh Asian-inspired ingredients. ]]> Tarragon Turkey Salad Mon, 20 Aug 2018 16:46:26 +0000 Tarragon Turkey SaladIt seems simple, but the shallot and tarragon really make this salad sing. It's a great way to turn leftovers into a meal worth celebrating. ]]> Smokey Roast Mon, 20 Aug 2018 16:46:26 +0000 Smokey RoastA nice beef roast is something I crave in the fall or winter months but I had a big ol’’ grass fed chuck roast that was asking to be made; so I made it. I wanted to try something different then the standard roast in the oven or slow cooker so after being inspired by watching a recent Food Network show called Chopped, when one of the contestants rolled a giant elk tenderloin in a coffee spice mixture, I decided to make my own version and try it on our roast. The results? So good, beyond description really, you’’ll just have to try it for yourself and let me know what you think!, ]]> Seared Scallop with Arugula Pesto Mon, 20 Aug 2018 16:46:26 +0000 Seared Scallop with Arugula PestoThis is a vibrantly colored dish and will definitely stand out if you serve at a dinner party or for a romantic dinner date. ]]> Thai Green Chicken Curry Mon, 20 Aug 2018 16:46:26 +0000 Thai Green Chicken CurryI like Thai green curry. It tastes fresh. I like adding to its natural freshness by using partially-cooked vegetables, whose crunchiness really complement the soft chicken. Let me warn you that the curry paste I used in this recipe is significantly more spicy than I thought it would be. If you’re down for some spiciness, this dish should hit the spot. ]]> Bacon-Wrapped Smoky Chicken Thighs Mon, 20 Aug 2018 16:46:26 +0000 Bacon-Wrapped Smoky Chicken ThighsWhat do you do when you get home from the grocery store and realize you bought chicken thighs without skin?
