Nicoise Salmon Salad

You may have read in my previous post that I had an amazing salad experience a few weeks ago at the Nordstrom Cafe. Don’t worry, this is the last you’ll be hearing of it. 🙂 It was just such a fun surprise to feel so passionately about a salad. I like salad but I don’t love it, which…

Herb Crusted Salmon

I had thought that I’d exhausted every salmon dish possibility. Salmon is one of my favorite foods because of its versatility and health benefits, so I make it for dinner multiple times a week. As I’m sure you’ve seen from my previous posts, I’m always trying to come up with unique salmon dishes so I…

Whitefish Curry

I order some delicious chicken curry takeout from a local Indian restaurant almost weekly. It’s one of my favorite meals, but I must admit it’s not the healthiest of dinner choices. The curry sauce is thickened with heavy cream and butter, which are both inflammatory foods. In an effort to lighten the negative effects of…

One-Pot GF Lemon Pasta

Has this ever happened to you? You’re making dinner, watching TV in the background, absentmindedly stirring a pot of pasta. Suddenly you smell something burning. Uh-oh, you forgot about the sauce on the other burner! It’s overcooked and sticking to the bottom of the pot. Maybe I’m just a terrible multitasker, but that happens to…

Gluten Free Bolognese

Bolognese sauce is an Italian classic that is traditionally made with ground beef, carrots, and celery. However, I don’t eat beef and I also have a strong aversion to cooked carrots (I know, it’s weird. I’ve always hated them though). So I decided to try my own version with all the modifications to make it…

Mexican-Style Cauliflower “Rice”

I recently came across the cookbook One Part Plant, which is all about slowly adding more plants into your diet and cutting down processed foods and animal products. It introduces a plan for making one meal per day 100% plant-based. In other words, a guide to being pretty much 1/3 vegan. I know that both…

Cilantro-Lime Baked Cod

One of my favorite ways to find new recipe inspiration is to eat out at restaurants, try a meal that sounds good, and if I love it, attempt to recreate it on my own. That’s exactly what happened with this recipe! I’ve always been a fan of seafood, so whenever I’m out at a restaurant…

Veracruz-Style Tilapia (One Skillet!)

If you like bland, flavorless, monochromatic food, this post is not for you. I was browsing through Pinterest the other day (my favorite pastime) searching for new recipe inspiration when I came across this delightful looking dish. I happened to have two tilapia fillets in my freezer, and decided to give it a try! Luckily,…

Braised Salmon with Summer Veggies

I’m always on the lookout for healthy and easy recipes that also taste delicious. It’s a hard  combination to find! That’s why I’m really excited to be sharing this one. The part of prep that took the longest was chopping the 3 veggies, and after that you just dump everything into a pan and let it…

Salmon in White Wine Butter Sauce

The other day, I was out for dinner at Maggiano’s in Bellevue, which has a plethora of gluten free options. After a long period of intense deliberation, I had narrowed down my options to either a GF pasta or a seared salmon in white wine sauce. It was a tough call but I finally decided…

Lasagna Stuffed Portobellos

There’s no comfort food quite like lasagna. It’s pretty much a cake made of pasta, so what’s not to love? Luckily, there are plenty of gluten free lasagna noodle options so I still get to enjoy this delightful dish. The one downside is that it’s kind of a heavy meal. You know, the kind that…

Savory Salmon and Avocado Crepes

I usually have my delicious Gluten Free Crepes smothered in a generous layer of Nutella with some fresh strawberries or sliced bananas. It’s delicious, but not exactly healthy. I recently decided that I should try to cut down my sugar intake (yes, I’ve been drinking black coffee…it’s difficult but I feel a lot better!). For that…
