Baked Halibut with Lemon & Thai Chili

Baked Halibut with Lemon & Thai Chili

Baking fish in foil was probably one of the first “grown up” meals I learned to cook on my own. This was, of course, after I had mastered the ubiquitous pasta plus sauce combo of college youth everywhere. Then I moved on to the fine art of inadvertently frying the contents of a stir fry mix that […]

Calamari Kale & Kalamata Olive Salad

Calamari, kale and Kalamata. Clearly, I’m a sucker for alliteration in recipe titles. For years, I didn’t actually realize that “calamari” on the menu referred to the squid beneath the batter in the ubiquitous fried calamari dishes I loved so much.

The first time I made these roasted baby carrots, however, was as a side because I’d just gleefully returned home from grocery shopping […]

Green Fajita Chicken

Never fear, the fajita chicken isn’t ACTUALLY green. Well, once you’ve cooked it, anyway. The marinade, however, is pretty awesomely-tinged due to the jalapeno and cilantro in it. The great thing about this marinade is that it only needs to sit for about 30 minutes to tenderize and flavor the chicken, so it is feasible […]
