It’s amazing how just a little bit of certain flavors can totally transform a recipe from ordinary to oh-my-gosh, can I have some more? Take this simple little recipe for brown sugar salmon, for example. A simple little topping made out of brown sugar, mustard and a few other things spread on top of a salmon filet takes a regular ho-hum piece of roasted salmon and transforms it into a plate of sweet and savory mouthwatering deliciousness.

Oh, this soup…now that it is August and the sweet corn is all around us, this corn shrimp chowder is going into constant rotation in my house. Not only is it ready in a jiffy, but it combines two of my favorite summer flavors…corn and shrimp…along with one of my favorite 365 days a year flavor, bacon! It’s delicious both piping hot right out of the pot, and also cooled down to room temperature for those sultry summer evenings.
So the next time you are picking up some fresh ears of corn at your local farm stand, toss a few extra in your bag and let’s make it!
This bowl of smoked salmon potato salad is not only a rainbow full of delicious tastes and textures, it also is an explosion of healthiness, and honestly, what more could you ask for in a salad? Cheery cherry tomatoes, tender potatoes, crunchy lettuce and the silky, salty taste of smoked salmon, with some capers and chopped pickle for sass, and just a hint of creamy dressing. And except for boiling up the potatoes, exactly NO cooking, which is music to my ears during these sultry summer evenings.

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!
Leftover cooked chicken, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways…on the other hand, let me not, because we would be here all day. But one of the ways is definitely in this couldn’t-be-easier recipe for chicken soba noodle salad. Soba noodles, all kinds of fresh chopped veggies, a little of your favorite vinaigrette dressing, and that cooked chicken, torn into bite-sized shreds. It’s a healthy, hearty salad that helps welcome in spring with its colorful vegetables. Ready for some springtime salad deliciousness? Let’s make it!
I have so many reasons to love this recipe for paleo taco salad that I’m not really sure where to start. I think the best place is by saying this is a quick, easy, spicy conglomeration of ground beef sautéed up and then tossed with sweet cherry tomatoes and sassy chopped scallions and buttery chunks of avocado, and drizzled with an avocado lime dressing. There’s not a taco shell or a shred of cheese in sight, and you know what? I DON’T MISS THEM. It’s. A. Miracle. Let’s make it!
