Almond Crackers
In general, I pay attention to eating healthy.  My daily meals are balanced and I try not to eat too much junk.  There is no food group I omit - I have no allergies nor ethical quandaries - I love it all - vegetable, animal, and mineral.  Unfortunately, I a...

Broiled Salmon with Scallions and Sesame
We aren't big on salmon in this house.  I have made salmon dishes before, but they haven't done much to make us like salmon.  However, I have learned that if I want Jim to eat something he typically does not care for, I pretty much just need to add hot pepp...

Lobster with Ginger and Scallion
Ever had lobster with ginger and scallion at a Chinese restaurant?  If not, you are so missing out.  It's one of our favorites, but unfortunately it's also pretty expensive for reasons you can guess.  We go for it when they have a special and we freakin' lo...

Miso Glazed Eggplant
I've been getting a lot of eggplant in the CSA , and since I am not one to make the same things over and over again, there has been a number of eggplant experiments this summer.  Very unfortunately, no one was a fan of eggplant caponata recipe I tried out (...

Baked Chipotle Lime Rice
There are so many ways to cook rice.  My favorite is an actual rice cooker.  If you find the right one, you will get perfect rice every time.  Unfortunately our perfect one broke about eight years ago.  In our quest to find another perfect rice cooker, I ha...

"Fried" Green Tomato Caprese
I got the most adorable little green tomatoes in the CSA this week.  So no better time than now to try out fried green tomatoes.  I have never had them.  Love the movie, though.  Of course, as much as I love fried food, I am not one to fry things unless I a...

Stuffed Rondo (de Nice) Squash
Truth be told, this was my first time stuffing a squash.  I've never been that into squash, so I typically fry them up as fritters (because anything is better fried) or I mix it into a pesto where my unsuspecting daughter used to (note the words "used to" t...
