Anything Stuffed with Crab is a Delicious National Day

I adore crab. There are countless fond memories involving crab. One of my favorites has to be to get some crab at Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco, pick up some fresh baked Sourdough Bread and a jug of wine. Then sit on the beach enjoying an amazingly simple picnic and watch the sun go down. That was a long, long time ago.

Broiled Halibut with Moroccan Chermoula

Although it’s been a while, we’ve talked about Chermoula before. Basically, this is a condiment, much like Ketchup is to the American Household, that is found in North Africa.

Eating Smart and Seasoned Tilapia Fish Fry

Can we talk fish for a moment? Tilapia sure have been getting a bad reputation for a while now. These fish are generally farm-raised, cheap to bring to market and best of all don’t have that strong “fishy” taste that generally turns people off. Cheap and tasty – that’s what makes Tilapia so popular. Yet we hear warnings. So are Tilapia bad for us?

Lenten Tartar Sauce Coleslaw on a Cod Fish Sandwich

Today is the eighth day of the Lenten Season. Time to really get creative and think outside my typical box. As I put together my meal planner, I asked Hubby if he liked Coleslaw. I had noticed that he generally cringed away from slaw that came as a side in some restaurants. He said sure, if it’s done right he would eat it.
