Tomato-cucumber salad

Tomato-cucumber salad

All summer long my family absolutely loves a simple salad of thin sliced tomatoes and cucumbers, because is fresh and pretty much can be eaten with any dish. But if you are busy person as I am, I am sure you don’t have time to make this salad everyday.
This is a trick that i discovered if you want to “meal-prep” when you have a few extra minutes that tastes really good.

When searching for the ultimate healthy dinner, I decided to put a twist on a stuffed chicken breast. I wanted to maximize the benefits in the ingredients to promote thyroid health without sacrificing taste.

This is a recipe I created. It’s great as an appetizer to wow your guests, just as a snack or a side to dinner. Pan roasted mushrooms meet lovely burrata cheese and amber honey. You cannot lose.

Red Curry Steamer Clams

Red Curry Steamer Clams

For this recipe I harvested manila clams right off the beaches of the Puget Sound in Washington State. Lucky for me I only have to drive a short distance to get these babies. However, any steamer clams will suffice. I’ve eaten more of these than I can even recall, but most of them have been cooked in the typical white wine and butter broth. I had something similar to this off a menu at some fancy restaurant in Seattle many years ago that is no longer open and I’ve never seen anything quite like it anywhere else, so I decided to make my own.
