What do you get when you have a meal planned of portobello black bean burgers with corn salsa, but Lindsay neglects to buy black beans at the store? Well, you spread the ingredients you...

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...

Linguine with Shrimp, Asparagus, and Basil

Ok, so here’s the thing. Sometimes we do good. We find fantastic recipes and we enjoy them. Other weeks, we don’t do so good. This might be one of those weeks. While I wouldn’t...

Fresh Spinach with Garlic-Yogurt Sauce

Fresh Spinach with Garlic-Yogurt Sauce
