Last night I made these tuna steaks recipe with a Dijon honey mustard sauce glaze along with sauteed sugar snap peas.  They were delicious, easy and made me realize again that eating healthy can be done without a lot of pain.

  • 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…

  • A Packet of Fun…Date Night and En Papillote (Fish in Parchment)

    Ever since Mr. Wonderful and I got married, we have faithfully stuck by one thing… Date Night! Any Tuesday (or whatever night we are free), when we are footloose and kid-free, we spend  on each other.

    This is something I did the other night.  Mr. Wonderful was working late.  I didn’t know what to fix him.  The kids were gone.  What resulted has had him talking ever since. I had a bag of frozen mussels in the freezer left over from our Crab Boil for Chris’ birthday. I started with 2…

  • Shrimp Tacos – My New Favorite Thing

    August 3, 2011DishinandDishes

    Last night was Tuesday, which translates into date night for Mr. Wonderful and myself.  Instead of going out, I wanted to cook out on the patio and revel in the new things we’ve been doing in the backyard.  There’s something strangely satisfying about sitting on the patio in the spring, with the soft breeze blowing…

  • Mr. Wonderful’s Birthday Crab Boil

    January 7, 2011DishinandDishes

    Last weekend we celebrated Mr. Wonderful’s birthday. Our son Chris planned a crab boil for him. This is a super-fun thing to do with your family or friends for a party. Just have everyone bring their own portion of crab legs (however many they think they will eat), and one other item (shrimp, red potatoes,…
