Simple Salmon Elegance

While grocery shopping a few weeks back, my daughter commented that she wanted to eat more fish. Well, this is not the typical tween comment, so I figured I better act fast! Salmon is her favorite, so when I searched on the web site and found Chili Garlic Salmon, I was pretty excited. It looked simple enough for a weekday night, yet created quite an elegant dish that included the fish and a green vegetable. The recipe serves two, but I found it could easily be doubled for a family of four.

Double Chocolate Gems - Small Bites of Brownies

If I haven’t made myself clear in past blogs let me be sure to set the record straight – I love chocolate, dark chocolate especially. I think it must be genetic since my dad and sister have the same passion about this simple yet luxurious treat.    My dad has an official “candy drawer” in their kitchen. He has had this treasure trove of goodies since I was a small child. Everyone in the family knows where to go if they want a little treat to tide them over until a meal is served, to satisfy a craving mid-day or to add a special ending to the day. There is always (yes always) chocolate of some kind in that drawer.

Congratulations Graduate! Here's a Diploma...Cookie

It's graduation time!  It is hard to believe Zach, my neighbor boy or rather young man, is graduating in a couple of weeks.  Where did that time go?  It was just yesterday,  it seems, Zach was 10 years old.  But, whatever … let’s celebrate!  A special cookie recipe I made for his sister, Ashley’s, graduation party a couple of years ago is Diploma Cookies. Baking these cookies is one small way for me to be part of Zach’s celebration and bake a little something of what I love…cookies.
