We’re officially off to the last stretch of my project: fish! I decided to start off with my favorite kind, which is salmon. If salmon is offered on a restaurant menu, you can be sure that it’s what I will order. I don’t know what it is about it but I find salmon to be one of the most delicious things that can be eaten. I’d pick a grilled salmon filet over a piece of steak almost any day. Seriously. Continue reading “Passion Project: Roasted Salmon with Caramelized Golden Beets”

I’ve been on a “veggie noodles” kind of roll lately (and loving it!). Every now and then, I find them to be a wonderful alternative to regular pasta. They’re much quicker to make, low on carbs, high on plenty of great vitamins, and overall delicious coupled with a homemade sauce.

I know I’ve already told you that Asian cuisine (and all kinds of it!) ranks among my favorite types of food, but Lebanese comes as a close second. Growing up, I was fortunate enough to have two great Lebanese restaurants right by my house. My mom and I would often get it to-go, and our go-to order always had our all-time favorites: Keftedes (meatballs), Hummus, Baba Ganouj (broiled eggplant) and Tabouli.

Happy belated Easter everyone! It’s good to be back. I actually went to Nashville last week and got to discover Southern cuisine, which was absolutely delicious! Shrimp & grits, sticky buns and chicken were definitely the way to go. However, it is on the “heavier” side of the food spectrum and I felt like I needed something fresh, with plenty of vegetables for lunch today! Introducing my new obsession: cauliflower couscous!
