Then I remembered making garlicky pickled carrots a few years ago and instantly had a craving for them. I whipped these […]

Simple Fish Tacos

April 7, 2014

Last week I promised you the recipe for simple fish tacos Leila requested on her birthday. I make these all the time, and the kids go crazy for them. I think part of the reason is because the fish, while delicious, is also mild in flavor (and not “fishy” at all). The other reason is […]

March 31, 2014

Spring Training is over, shorts season is here, and I am not 20 years old anymore. Therefore, it’s time to start working out again. I don’t have much of a plan except to do something every day. Whether it’s a DVD, a jog around the neighborhood or quick circuit in the living room, I am […]
