A Variety Of Salmon

Salmon is one of my absolute favorite things to eat and I can literally eat it multiple ways in the same week. When looking for options, here are a few of my go-tos. Salad: searing salmon with some fresh herbs and fresh lemon juice is a great way to pack in the flavor and keep it…

Still Inspired…

As part of my unplugging and unwinding, I still love to be inspired to create a flavorful, comforting meal. I will say I’ve been enjoying this new wave of home cooking and family gatherings.
