      Mr. Wonderful and I still try to keep our once a week date nights. This has been challenging in the past year, due to his job change and hours, but we know how important it is to the health of our marriage, so we keep trying! This is one of our favorite things to…

  • Sweet Chili-Glazed Salmon

    June 27, 2012DishinandDishes

    I knew when I saw this recipe, I must make it.  We’ve been trying, for health benefits, to try and incorporate salmon into our diet more and more. One problem with that. Mr. Wonderful isn’t a salmon fan. He’s a fisherman, just not a salmon fish kind of guy.  I know our adoration for sweet chili…

  • Pineapple Coconut Chicken

    April 10, 2012DishinandDishes

    I am a big coconut and pineapple fan.  It reminds me of the beach, the tropics and the time I visited the Bahamas and the young native kids would shimmy up a tree, pick us a coconut, smash it on the ground and give it to us to taste. Anything involving pineapple and coconut is…
