Grilled Salmon Salad with Edamame and Oranges

I’m not buying into the theory that Mother’s Day is a “Hallmark Holiday”, commercialized beyond recognition, so can be ignored in good conscious. “Mother’s Day,” according to Wikipedia, “…is an annual holiday that recognizes mothers, motherhood and maternal bonds in general, as well the positive contributions that they make to society.” In the United States, … Full recipe post »

I wish I could say I used fresh shucked black-eyed peas (oh so good), but I had a bag of frozen and can’t remember when I purchased them; time to clean house. If you can get your hands on some fresh black-eyed peas or crowder peas, use them instead. This turned out to be a delicious meal, and … Full recipe post »

My heart skips a beat when wild salmon is on sale; I have to buy a hunk.

Combining mayonnaise and Dijon mustard, then spreading the mixture over fish fillets prior to baking, is a simple recipe mom often made for us, way back in the prehistoric sixties.

Baked Salmon with Toasted Walnuts and Mixed Green Salad

Here’s another healthy and easy to prepare recipe. The vinaigrette works overtime serving as a marinade for the salmon and a dressing for the greens.

Lemony Salmon Fillet Wrapped in Chard

One of the favorite food sites to which I subscribe is Citron & Vanille — the recipes are always interesting and delicious, but sometimes the products are difficult to source, and the preparation can be extensive.

That doesn’t sound so bad, but the article continues … Full recipe post »
