My Inspiration . . .

I've always had a love for baking, but it wasn't until I was in college that I had a desire to learn how to cook. In 2009, I decided to start my own cooking blog so I could access my recipes from anywhere, and was born.

I love trying new recipes and finding ways to make them healthier & happier on the hips! I love everything about food: the taste, the smells, the presentation, the experimenting, etc. I love to entertain, so I figured this was a great way to bring people together. Hope you enjoy trying out some of the recipes. Happy cooking!

Grilled Salmon

{ Prep Time: 10 mins / Difficulty: Easy / Yields: 2 servings }

2 (6oz) salmon filets, skin on
zest and juice of 1 lemon
1 clove garlic, minced
handful of fresh parsley, finely chopped
2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
kosher salt & fresh ground pepper (about 1/4 tsp each)

1. Heat gas grill to medium-high heat.
2. To prepare the marinade, mix together all the ingredients (except the salmon, of course!) in a small bowl. Place salmon filets in a glass container, skin side down, and cover with marinade. Cover and refrigerate for 30 mins.
3. Place salmon, skin side up on prepared grill, and cook 5-7 mins. Flip and cook 5-7 more minutes. (Skin will stick to grill, which is ok, because you don't want to eat the skin anyway!) ;-) Salmon is ready when it flakes off with a fork.

** Serve with: green vegetables like broccoli, green beans, zuccinni, etc. Grains such as couscous, wild rice, brown rice or polenta.
