Apple Teriyaki Salmon with Brussels Sprouts



When my oldest son was a toddler he referred to salmon as "pink chicken" - and he loved pink chicken!  In hindsight, people probably thought it was really weird that my kid raved about pink chicken.  I mean, last I checked, there was no such thing as sushi grade poultry.  Ew,  In any case, I always think about that when I buy salmon.

This Apple Teriyaki Salmon with Brussels Sprouts is my version of salmon with fruit salsa.  If you're looking for a more traditional Mango Salsa to serve over your salmon, I'll provide it below. But I'll tell you a secret:  I'm just learning to like fruit with my meat and veggies and I really feel like apple is the gateway fruit.  It just goes so well between sweet and savory and is really delicious.  This dish is especially awesome because it's only 5 ingredients, comes together in just a few minutes, and cooks all in one pot!

Double Berry Ginger Ale Float



So, I've heard there was a blizzard in New England this week, but here in Florida, we just hit ninety degrees.  Which means pool time, sprinklers, gardening, and cold refreshing beverages.  We spent all morning at our local plant nursery.  Last year we had our first successful garden and this year we're going to try to add some fruit trees!  I'm so excited!  I already had a kumquat and a fig tree and today we picked up tangerine, key lime, lemon, banana, and apples!  I figure with as much fruit as my kids eat, any little offset helps!

After trudging around in the hot sun choosing our plants, we swung by Walmart and then came home to float in the pool and enjoy these yummy Double Berry Ginger Ale Floats.  And as soon as the sun settles a little and the breeze picks up, I'll head back out to play in the garden.  Because it's just not Spring if you're not getting dirty!

Tell me, are you planting a garden this year?  What plants are your favorite to grow?

Parenting is hard.  I know I say it often, but parenting is HARD.  I'm typing this at 2am after putting my three year old back in bed for the third time.  And I may have shuttled her into my bed this last go-round, because I know she'll sleep better there.  Doesn't matter anyway because the 18 month old has been having night terrors (fun!) so hubby is bunking in the guest room with the baby monitor.  It's a team effort.  And it's exhausting.

Roasted Cauliflower Recipe


My kids are (thankfully) good eaters and will finish the vegetables served to them without too much grumbling.  But there's one side dish they literally clamor for and it doesn't matter how much I make - there's never enough.  Oven Roasted Cauliflower.  Fortunately, it's one of the easiest veggies to make too.  My eight year old loves to help out with the rinsing and drizzling, and as soon as his knife skills get a little better, I'll let him take over all of the prep on this one!

When you roast cauliflower it softens without getting mushy, and the flavors become rich and robust.  It's currently my favorite vegetable to roast.  I like to get the full heads of cauliflower because I find they keep in the refrigerator for quite a while, and I'm basically terrible at menu planning, but if you're short on time or just not a fan of cutting up veggies then you're welcome to grab the pre-cut kind in a bag.  Just avoid frozen cauliflower because it doesn't roast well.  Great for soups and stir-frys, but not so much for roasting.

Strawberry Breakfast Roll Recipe


I have one daughter and four sons.  Four. Sons.  So, even though I wasn't really into girly stuff as a child, I am absolutely reveling in my daughter's love of everything pink and princessy.  The girl comes by it naturally, because she was born into a sea of testosterone.

For Easter we usually go to my sister's and have a big egg hunt with the cousins, but schedules are a mess this year so we're on our own for the first time.  I'm pretty bummed about that, so I'd be lying if I didn't admit to being seriously excited when I was asked to hit Walmart and put together a Disney Princess Easter basket.  We're conservative about gifting, and it was hard not to go overboard, but I think I nailed it. I also put together these super simple Mini Strawberry Breakfast Rolls to serve on Easter morning.  They're so dainty and cute - with just the right amount of sweet to top things off.
