Fresh and Light Baja Style Fish Tacos

We love tacos. All kinds of tacos. I estimate we have tacos at least once a week - not always on Tuesday. I mean, after all, we were serious taco-aficionados long before Taco Tuesday became a thing.

Our obsession with tacos continues with this lighter take on Baja-style fish tacos.

Berry Beer Pancakes

A few years ago during a visit to an upstate New York brewery, we saw a recipe for beer pancakes. I thought it was a genius idea. Finally about a year ago we put it to the test in our own kitchen. All I can say is, Kent Falls Brewing Blueberry vs. Blackberry was meant to be in pancakes.

Eat The Weeds! Sauteed Dandelions and Chickpeas

As a little girl, my dad would tell me stories how his mother back in Italy would forage for dandelions and make a big salad with them. So one Spring day when I was still knee-high to a grasshopper, we decided to relive the tradition. We roamed our yard, carefully removing as many dandelions as we could find. I loved the outdoors and it was like a game hunting down the next plant. That night at dinner, I ate with pride my dandelion salad and could not wait to tell my friends.

Welcoming Spring at Fresh Salt

Sometimes you just need to get away. And, it's a very cool thing when you don't need to go far for a little R and R. Just a little over an hour and a half east of Danbury is a spot for an elegant stay, relaxing spa, and dinner with a view. Recently, we were treated to an overnight stay at the Saybrook Point Inn along with a dinner overlooking the water at the Inn's award-winning restaurant, Fresh Salt.

Blood Orange and Asparagus Chicken Salad

I've said it before and I'll say it again. A well-stocked pantry is something I always try to have regardless of what my schedule throws at me. Quick staples I usually have on hand include assorted grains, pasta, various canned beans, and canned tuna. I can easily design a quick meal based on one or all of those items adding in a few, often random, fresh ingredients. In this month's Degustabox I discovered a new possible go-to pantry item that was key to a healthy, light dinner on a hectic Monday.
