Paella!

Paella!

Paella! Should always be written with an exclamation point at the end. Because it’s exciting! It was certainly the punch in the mouth I needed lately. In a non-violent, non scary way. I’ve been an extremely grumpybear the past couple weeks. Yes, I said grumpybear […]

Broiled Tilapia with Lime Chipotle Marinade

Salmon with Mango Salsa Coating

Salmon with Mango Salsa Coating

Wow. Only 5 ingredients. The great thing about this mango salsa is it keeps the salmon so moist when it is baked altogether. This is an adapted recipe from my free Costco cookbook. Hahah. The only thing I changed was I added mango and removed […]

Soy Ginger Salmon

Soy Ginger Salmon
