Lime ginger albacore


Guys, I know I’ve been a bit distant this month. Just know it’s not you, it’s me. August has been a big month, complete with the future in-laws coming for a visit, getting engaged, a bachelorette party, two weddings, and Lucas’s marathon. And we’re only about halfway through that list. We flew up to Seattle [continue reading...]

Baked herbed salmon


With a trip to Boston smack dab in the middle of finishing a first draft and making serious revisions to my paper, every dish I make gets added to an ever-growing queue waiting to be shared with you.

We treat ourselves to mussels or clams at least twice a month, but I wouldn’t know where to buy them if Monterey Fish ever packed up Flounder and [continue reading...]
