Teriyaki Cheeseburgers

Juicy, sweet, mouth-watering, tender, perfect teriyaki cheeseburgers, that is exactly what we have here.  I mentioned eating way too much food while in Kauai but I am quite sure every bite I took was worth it; from the Thai coconut seafood platter to the Hawaiian shaved ice to the lava flow virgin pina colada to […]

Sweet and Savory Brisket

I made brisket today. A sweet and savory brisket. It was my first time cooking a brisket and thank goodness it was good!  Really good.  I had read that you will never be able to make a piece of brisket tender but after this sweet and savory brisket I don’t believe that.  Maybe I just […]

Avocado Citrus Salad

Is it spring yet in your neck of the woods?  This avocado citrus salad will bring spring in the door whether the calendar or weather says it is. Spring is my favorite season.  I love seeing the bulbs awaken and their flowers burst through the ground or the blossoms come forth sharing their fragrance throughout […]

Honey Lime Crusted Salmon

I picked up some limes at the farmer’s stand yesterday, they were yellow just like lemons. But they were limes, sweet limes. Have you ever tasted a sweet lime?  They are really good, not sour and mouth puckering like a lime or regular lemon but really sweet and just the right ingredient for my Honey […]

Roasted Asparagus Carbonara

Spaghetti Carbonara is one of our family’s favorite dishes.  We absolutely love it.  The roasted asparagus, mushrooms, and garlic added a bonus of flavor and goodness to the basic carbonara.  I would say this roasted asparagus carbonara will be a new family favorite.   We pretty much love anything pasta.  Roasted Asparagus Carbonara is a […]

Baked Omelet

What do you make for dinner when you can’t decide or think of what to make for dinner.  How about a baked omelet that pretty much takes care of itself? This was perfect for dinner tonight because with just a minimum amount of preparation I had dinner in the oven baking within minutes and then […]

Blood orange salsa salmon, a citrus salsa over honey crusted salmon.

Blood Orange Salsa Salmon

This blood orange salsa salmon was one of the most delicious dishes I have ever prepared and eaten. Do you know the blood orange?  I am sorry it doesn’t have a better name, some people do call it a red orange.  I suggest crimson orange.  It is grown specifically but it really is a mutation […]

I knew that because we have zucchini growing in our garden, this was something I needed to make with some of the zucchini. This recipe is slightly adapted from Skinny Taste’s zucchini lasagna.   But then it has […]
