Baked Salmon with Dill and Ginger Citrus Salad

Fresh dill with salmon is a beautiful combo. Add the sweet and sour zing of ginger and citrus and you’ve got a winning dish. Baking the salmon at a low temperature allows time for the flavor of the dill to infuse into the salmon and keeps the salmon moist and flakey. Serve the salmon alongside…

Green Goddess Dressing

This is not the trending TikTok version that calls for over 16 ingredients but rather a deliciously easy, 6-ingredient dressing that comes together with a whirl of your blender. You’ll want to keep it on hand for your favorite salads, a dip for crunch veggies or as a marinade chicken or fish. This dressing uses…

Winter Salad with Roasted Butternut Squash

Salads are not always my go-to once cold weather sets in but I’ve found that if I change up my summer salad veggies for more seasonal ingredients, I enjoy them so much more. This salad recipe was sent to me by my cousin Deborah, and I loved her easy to assemble wintery ingredients. She used…

Chimichurri

One of the best ways to elevate your meals is to have a few easy sauces in your fridge. Green sauces can be found in so many cuisines around the world. Basil-based pesto in Italy, salsa verde in Mexico, and Chimichurri from Uruguay and Argentina. Chimichurri has a tangy, salty, spicy flavor from fresh parsley,…

Ginger Dressing

This dressing is inspired by our favorite Japanese restaurant, Harusame, in Wynnewood, PA. We love their ginger dressing so I decided to try to replicate the dressing at home and I think I got pretty close. Not only is it a gorgeous, vibrant orange, it’s extremely healthy (made mostly from carrots) and super easy to…

Pear and Ginger Salad

When pears are in season, I love using them in as many ways as possible. Tossing them with a light ginger and soy dressing and serving them over greens with a sprinkle of walnuts is a fast and easy way to give them the attention they deserve.

Mastering Mezze

Mezze refers to a mixture of small dishes, served as either an appetizer or a light meal. This style of eating is very popular in the Middle East and Mediterranean countries. Mezze staples include dips, vegetables, salads, and bread. I will often assemble ingredients that I already have in the fridge and the pantry so…

Fruity Cranberry Sauce

If you’ve never made homemade cranberry sauce, this is the year to give it a try. This recipe is so easy, taking only about 15 minutes to make. Skip the canned variety. It has 6 teaspoons of sugar in just 1/4 cup. That’s an entire days worth of added sugar for most of us, not…

Spiced Honey Drizzle (perfect over roasted veggies)

I’m a huge fan of roasting any vegetable with just some olive oil, salt and pepper but occasionally I want to kick it up a notch. This honey glaze goes well with any roasted veggie but I especially love it with cauliflower. The turmeric gives the cauliflower a bright yellow glow and the in the…

4th of July Celebration Salad

Juicy watermelon, sweet blueberries, fresh mint and salty feta cheese create a symphony of summer flavors in every bite. Best of all, it takes 10 minutes to assemble.

Creamy and Light Salmon Salad with Yogurt and Dill

Tinned fish is convenient, economical, and nutrient-rich so don’t limit your options to just tuna fish. Canned salmon is a pantry staple of mine because I love it as an alternative to tuna. It’s rich in omega-3 fatty acids, protein and calcium (if it’s not boneless). For quick and healthy weeknight dinners, I use it…

Shrimp Orzo Salad with Fresh Dill and Lemon

I love anything with fresh dill and lemon and these two favorites are paired with whole wheat orzo and shrimp for a light, fresh summer salad. It’s a meal in one bowl. How easy is that!
