We are currently in a salmon situation in our house, because every once in a while we get a little, oh, INDULGENT (more on that in a bit) and I have to get us back on a heathy eating track. And that always involves salmon, which is not only one of our favorite fishies, but is also a superfood (so are tea and blueberries by the way, two of my other faves!). And when you are doing a deep dive into healthy eating, anything that is a superfood sounds good to me. In this case, I kept a little of the naughtiness going by bathing my salmon in a mixture of bourbon and lime and other good things, but just enough to give it a little sass. Super good and good for you…let’s make it!
Is there anything more completely comfort food than supper out of a bowl? I DON’T THINK SO. And while I do love bowls full of soup and oatmeal and pastina with egg and cheese, my most recent supper in a bowl crush has been this sesame salmon rice bowl. Tender flaky roasted salmon, buttery avocado, sassy scallions and a lime and mustard dressing, all nestled in a bed of rice and served in your favorite bowl. Are you ready for some easy, healthy comfort food deliciousness? In a bowl? Let’s make it!
Any supper that has the words “steak” and taco” in it pretty much has me at hello, and this recipe for lime steak tacos is no exception. Because while I could cheerfully eat plain steak in plain tortillas and be a happy girl, when you marinate the steak in line and spices, and then grill it up and serve it warm corn tortillas with a lime avocado and cherry tomato salsa…well. That is otherwise known as heaven on a plate. And since we are sending our grill into overdrive as the days get shorter (sob!), this is one that we will definitely be tucking into a few times before the first leaves fall. Let’s make it!
Summertiiiiiiiiiiime, and the living is easy! Especially if you decide to make nachos for dinner. And especially if you swap out the jarred salsa and make these fresh corn nachos instead. Filling in for that jarred stuff is a quick and scrumptious conglomeration of fresh corn kernels, some chopped red onion, and a little lime juice. Add in some chopped avocado, a little melted cheddar, some dollops of sour cream and a sprinkling of chili powder and you have the fresh summertime version of everyone’s favorite nibble. Ready to summertime up your nachos? Let’s make it!
When Cinco de Mayo falls on a weekday, it’s a little tricky to celebrate with actual margaritas, which is why this recipe for Margarita Chicken comes in so handy! It’s chicken dinner but with a little bit of spice and lime and zing to it, because even if Cinco de Mayo IS on a Thursday, we still need to be a little festive. So grab yourself some chicken and some limes and let’s get this well-behaved but still zesty party started with this suppertime version of your favorite cocktail!
If you dropped me on a desert island and told me I could have one and only one nibble type of thing for the rest of my life, I would pick BACON. But right after bacon, I would pick creamy, dreamy guacamole with its combo of silky avocado and tart lime juice and salt (which as far as I am concerned are the only things you need to make classic guac, thank you very much). But since I have staked my reputation of taking perfectly innocent classic recipes and messing with them, I decided to up the excitement in my kitchen, guacamole-wise, by adding in some pineapple and a little chopped red onion and you know what? You CAN teach old classic guacamole new tricks. Let’s make it!
