Smoked Salmon Flautas

Corn tortillas + deep frying = more trouble than these are worth. They had a really good flavor and tasted great when they were done, but it was a real ordeal getting there. Next time, we’ll use flour tortillas, and pan-fry them in a few tablespoons of oil instead of an inch, just so they...

Linguine with Shrimp, Asparagus, and Basil

Even my tofu-hating sister ate it and didn’t complain! Must have been some pretty good tofu! Thai Tofu & Peanut Pizza Recipe from Rachel Ray, with adjustments....
