Scandinavian Muesli

Muesli

This has become one of my new favorite, weekday breakfasts. jwa doesn’t really like it but that’s even better because it means one recipe’s worth will keep me in breakfasts for about one and a half weeks! See, I usually have a hard time finding something that I want to eat in the morning, coupled with the fact that I don’t have much time. Enter Muesli. Already made and I like it a lot. Perfect.

I also just got a new camera last weekend (Canon Rebel T3 with a Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Camera . . . → Read More: Scandinavian Muesli

Sockeye Salmon with Quinoa and Grapefruit Salad

Pan-Roasted Salmon with Grapefruit Quinoa Salad

Recently, I was very lucky and received another shipment of Copper River Salmon! This time, it was Sockeye from Prince William Sound. Although there was a slight Fed ex mishap with its delivery (my salmon took a brief field-trip to Memphis, it seems…perhaps visiting Graceland?), I received it just fine a day late. It was packed so well it was still nice and cold.

This is a recipe that I came across and have been wanting to try for awhile now. It was a great light & healthy meal. . . . → Read More: Sockeye Salmon with Quinoa and Grapefruit Salad

Staying and Eating in Santa Fe, New Mexico: Casita Madera and Restaurant Martin

Restaurant Martin

I have been meaning to do a post or two (or five) about our roadtrip in May to the Southwest but I keep being lazy about it. Well. No more. Here is at least one post about it. Santa Fe, in particular and our dinner at Restaurant Martin, which was one of (if not THE) best meal of the trip.

I spent a lot of time looking into Santa Fe restaurants before we left, as I figured one of our meals there would be the . . . → Read More: Staying and Eating in Santa Fe, New Mexico: Casita Madera and Restaurant Martin

FFwD: Salmon with Basil Tapenade

Salmon with Basil Tapanade

This week’s French Fridays with Dorie has probably been of of my favorites — salmon stuffed with a little olive tapanade and basil. As I was describing the dish to jwa last week, it went a little something like this:

me: the next French Fridays is salmon…

jwa: yes

me: and you take olive tapanade…

jwa: yes

me: and stuff it…

jwa: yes

me: inside and cook it.

jwa : yes.

So, in other words, this meal was not really a tough sell. It was really, really good! I only wish I . . . → Read More: FFwD: Salmon with Basil Tapenade
