This dish came about on a hot summer day when I didn’t want to go to the grocery store, and all I had on hand was frozen shrimp and fresh asparagus. With the help of some pantry basics, Shrimp Asparagus Penne was on the menu. Continue Reading…

Blackened Salmon Tacos with Pineapple Salsa

So the most random thing happened this weekend. While shopping for ingredients to make vegan tuna salad, I stumble upon canned Non-GMO Wild Alaskan Salmon.  At that point, I reconsidered making my vegan tuna salad to a salmon salad but I thought of a better idea. Blackened Continue Reading…
