Lemon Garlic Salmon (in Foil)


We don’t eat enough fish and seafood. I think that is something most of us could say. Being in the center of the US far from either ocean we tend to have more White Fish, Perch, and Walleye. We love fish and seafood but it seems so expensive that we rarely eat it. But, when…

Salmon Bowls


I am so excited! I think I may finally have a week where I can actually sit down and write something other than a grocery list on the back of an envelope. Even then it is only for one or two items as I am running to the store to get something I forgot. It…

Salmon Noodle Casserole (The Un-Tuna Casserole)


Each day feels a bit closer to real Spring weather. Soon the snow fence on the beach will be down and we will once again be heading to the beach in the evenings to watch the sunset or grab an evening swim. It is a chilly 35 degrees as I write this but I know…

Roasted Salmon Tacos with Lemon and Feta Cream Sauce


My postings have been a bit sporadic lately. I am posting entirely from my phone or tablet since my laptop died two weeks ago. This is such a minor thing in the scheme of life but it is entirely frustrating to me as it takes so much longer to create a post and I don’t…

One Pan Roasted Lemon Potatoes and Asparagus with Salmon


You know I love one pan meals. Less pots and pans means less clean up! What I like even more is not having to cook it too. I was away for the day with my daughter while she danced. When we got home my partner had dinner ready for us. As she was looking around…

Lemon Garlic Salmon and Walking Again


As I started this year I pledged to myself to try to present the truest picture possible about our life. Everyone has struggles and things to get through and as we read these blogs sometimes we forget that we are reading about real people and their lives. Sometimes things look so fairy tale like that…

Baked Pesto Salmon – Update on Those Resolutions


As I mentioned before I chose JOY as the word to guide my decisions and intentions this year rather than make regular New Year resolutions. I really have been trying to keep this word in front of me to help me at those moments I feel overwhelmed or uncertain. It doesn’t mean I walk around…

Asian Salmon in Foil


Have you kept your resolutions so far? If you are like most of the world, no. I stopped making resolutions many years ago. But, I did like the idea of finding one word to guide your intentions in 2016. I immediately thought of three words (I always was an overachiever.) that I really liked but…

Sweet and Spicy Salmon


I have been reading quite a bit about the troubles students are having in college. Students are increasingly seeking out ¬†counseling services for depression and anxiety. ¬†Colleges are having meetings and strategy planning sessions to try to figure out how to deal with the increase needed in counseling and mental health services. Teachers in college…

Sometimes Simple is Better – Simple Baked Salmon


When things get hectic it is nice to make a simple dinner. The other night we had been out of the house just about every night for a meeting, class or lesson. I just wanted life to slow down a bit. I had my daughter choose our meat for dinner and she chose salmon. It…

Balsamic Glazed Salmon


We are trying to keep life as normal as possible for our family as we are awaiting the phone call that we need to head back home for my mother-in-law’s funeral.¬† The children are under a great deal of stress not knowing what is happening day-to-day so we are trying to do as much as…
