A super simple way to marinade your salmon filet

Category: Recipes    

When it comes to fish, particularly salmon filet, I find that the less ingredients you use to marinade your fish the better. Salmon is one of the best seafoods you can eat since it is packed with heart healthy omega 3 fish oils. The salmon filet is particularly easy to cook whether in home or on a grill. In the summer time I like to wrap it in aluminum foil and place it on the outdoor bbq grill and cook it that way with some roasted vegetables for a perfect dinner. Whether you eat salmon or not, ...

Sunday is my favorite day to make dinner, not only because I grew up in an Italian family that does Sunday dinner (actually it is around 2pm in the afternoon, but still considered “dinner”) and they do it BIG, but because it is a day when I actually have a lot of time to go to shop for specific ingredients and take as long as I need in the kitchen. For the last week I have been plotting and planning to make chicken rollantini, which ...

Summer Meals that can be made in less than 10 minutes

When it comes to the summer time I love all things that can be made and eaten cold.

What does a typical dinner look like for me? Quick, healthy high protein dinner option recipes

Category: Recipes    

Here are some quick ideas for dinner time recipes and meal prep. While I do enjoy a really nice dinner out at a restaurant once in awhile, I have to say that I prefer to cook my own meals at home. When I go out to eat anywhere I always wondering how they are preparing my food, what are they putting in it, what oils are they using, etc. A lot of times restaurants use a lot of oils, creams, salt, etc and while it tastes delicious, I can never really tell how healthy or unhealthy it is for me. When ...

Chicken Sausage with Brocolli Rabe and Canneloni Beans Dinner

Brocolli rabe, also known as rapini, is a great green vegetable to add to your dinner time recipes.

It took me a few times to learn how to make it right so that it didn’t taste really overpowering in my dishes. Brocolli rabe only has 9 calorie ...
