Quick Family Recipes: Collard ‘n Cannellini Quesadillas

I’ve been known to throw collard greens in where you’d least expect them, so this combination should come at no surprise.  Before you say “Yuck” and move on, think about the nutritional benefits of these quesadillas.  A little shredded cheese, the right tortillas, and a hot griddle can turn good-for-you-greens into a cheesy delight. ...

Bourbon Glazed Salmon

Bourbon Glazed Salmon

Feature recipe:  I got your attention with the whiskey, right?  Sorry to disappoint, dear readers.  The alcohol evaporates under the broiler, but the undertones meld beautifully with the rest of the flavors in the marinade.  And it’s safe for your kids (Hayden will eat his portion AND mine, if I let him!)  Many people...

Easy Fix For a Dinner Crisis

Easy Fix For a Dinner Crisis

On a day when I am having what I call a dinner crisis, meaning I have nothing to cook or no time to do it, a pre-cooked rotisserie chicken fits the bill.  Even when I already have some vegetable or sides planned, I may not feel like cooking chicken, and a rotisserie chicken makes...

Crushed Garlic Salmon

January 20, 2010

Having this salmon in a skillet makes it hard to overcook it, which is one reason why I love cooking it this way.  Plus, little Hayden gobbles it up every time. 1 lb salmon fillets 2 tbs olive oil 1 clove garlic, crushed or finely minced salt Lightly salt salmon.   Using fingers, rub...
