Dijon Lemon Glazed Salmon 

Salmon is by far my favorite fish. I love it in so many ways… as sashimi, smoked, tartare, grilled, baked, poached and even canned. I am always looking for new ways to make it and recently I ate it in an Italian restaurant where it was dijon glazed. I was determined to recreate the recipe…

Balsamic Mushrooms with Goat Cheese

I love balsamic vinegar on vegetables, especially mushrooms. Since mushrooms are a little denser than your average leafy green, they seem to fill you up faster.

Caramelized Onion & Butternut Squash Sauce over Spaghetti Squash

I happen to love caramelized onions. I could probably just eat them plain. They tend to give plain and boring vegetables extra taste, eliminating the need for extra oil or sauces.

Zucchini Pasta alla Carbonara

Carbonara sauce is creamy and delicious, but not so friendly on your hips. I decided to change that. You can have the taste and the healthy aspect all in one. I chose not to incorporate the egg yolk into the dish because I believe you can still get the same flavor here. The below recipe…
