Pan Seared Lemon Halibut with Gluten Free Vegan Creamy Butternut Squash Pasta

The funny thing about making these last-minute cooking decisions is that 1) I have to think really hard about giving you guys exact portions after the fact 2) as seen in this very embarrassing iPhone video shot by my husband I was a little annoyed and frazzled when he kept egging me on about how it was [...]

Pan Seared Cod with Crispy Leeks & Capers

Another really simple dinner that doesn't have to be about re-inventing the wheel, it's just about adding a tiny new twist to keep your taste buds interested.

Sea2Table Salmon with Kale & Cappello’s Gnocchi in dressed up Rana Pesto

This was a really easy simple dinner that I can't take a ton of credit for, besides "dressing up" the pesto. Plus I got to finally use my Sea2Table salmon from the variety pack I bought a while back (see this post, and this one,  for more about how amazing Sea2Table is and how to use your [...]
