Food: Salmon In A Spicy Caraway Sauce

I eat salmon twice a month, and opt for the seafood option in most any restaurant or event I attend. I love seeing how the fish is prepared. Now although I have my simple recipe – with lemons, a little butter, ginger and sea salt, bake it in the over until tenderly done.  I can’t […]

healthy eating: spinach, strawberry, walnut and parmesan salad

Lately, since the weather has been so cold and gray in San Francisco, I have done nothing but search for comfort food to get me by. Even though I maintain healthy eating habits, for some strange reason, this “summer” I crave what is not that good for me or maybe it is, depending on how […]
