Grilled Salmon w/ Pomegranate, Avocado & Grapefruit

title

Okay, vacations are hard. I mean, it’s hard to get into the posting habit after a break. But I’ll try my best.

The other night — fine, last Sunday — jwa and I had some grilled salmon and a salsa with avocado, pomegranate seeds and grapefruit. This is a recipe I came across last year at the blog Frugal Cuisine, and one that I so fell in love with that I made as part of Christmas dinner. Recently, I thought it might go well with salmon. It did. In addition to the pomm, avocado and . . . → Read More: Grilled Salmon w/ Pomegranate, Avocado & Grapefruit

Braised Chicken with Apples and Sage

title

We had this meal a couple of weeks ago and I think we’ll have to have it again soon. It was really tasty. The original recipe called for chicken thighs but it worked really well with chicken breasts. You could probably go with skinless and boneless (that would take less cooking time) but go ahead and live a little and use bone-in breasts.

Forget What I Said…These Are the Shoes!

And bag. Which was something that I wasn’t going to get but then I changed my mind when I saw this bag at Zappos. Besides, what if I want to bring the camera? Or Lipstick? The room key? See, I need a bag! Especially when it is an awesome light green bag. I really had no choice.

The shoes are a citron-y green (Zappos called them yellow but I call them citron-y green) and the purse is celadon but pretty much matches the shoes. Perfect! Oh and the shoes are so comfy! Hooray! Shoes are J . . . → Read More: Forget What I Said…These Are the Shoes!

Sweet Onion Marmalade For You

title

The other day I was searching around and came across a recipe for onion marmalade. I tried it, tweaking it quite a bit so let’s just call it mine. Okay then. Anyway, here’s what I ended up with. Delicious! Great on bread, chicken, uh, turkey* and anything else you could think to slather it on.

Sweet Onion Marmalade 1 tbsp unsalted butter 1 tbsp olive oil 3 cups chopped onions (about 1 huge onion — I used a sweet onion) 1.5 tbsp sugar 1/4 cup Balsamic vinegar 1/4 cup port wine 1 sprig rosemary 1/4 tsp . . . → Read More: Sweet Onion Marmalade For You
