Grapefruit and Lime Pork Tenderloin

I love making and having pork tenderloin for a weeknight dinner. It’s quick, easy and healthy. Kylie’s boyfriend, Jacob, brought us grapefruits and lemons from his paren’t fruit trees in their yard. I used one of the lemons as a garnish for my soup the other night and knew immediately I wanted to use the…

Summer Bounty Tacos

Wondering what to make for lunch today, I searched my vegetable bin in the refrigerator and came up with a zucchini, an ear of corn, cremini mushrooms, grape tomatoes, and an onion. I decided to pull that all together to sauté and make tacos on corn tortillas. This is a great lunch or dinner if…

A Sheet Pan (or Two) Dinner

Dennis and I haven’t had sweet Italian chicken sausages in a few weeks and we both had a hankering for them for dinner last night. I chose to bake them in the oven at the same time I’d be baking a sheet pan loaded with small yellow Dutch potatoes, sweet onion and red pepper. This…

Tuna Steaks with Grilled Radicchio Salad

My husband, Dennis, has been asking for fish more in the last couple weeks than he has in our almost 31 years of marriage. He’s following a fitness program put on by a retired Navy Seal, in which they are asked to eat certain food types and give up others during certain weeks of the…

Swordfish with Pesto

I spent today at the County Courthouse downtown for jury duty. They must have liked me because I’ll be going back tomorrow, all the way through Monday. I’m glad I bought swordfish for tonight’s dinner because, not only does it cooks relatively quickly, we can eat healthy as well. I haven’t worked outside the home…

Cod with Lemon, Basil and Kalamata Olives

Who doesn’t love summer? There are so many reasons to love summer … reading on the porch or the patio, days spent at the beach, barbecues with family and friends, warmer weather, the county fairs across the country. I could go on and on. One of the many reasons I love summer is for the…

Crock-Pot Orange Jalapeño Pork Tenderloin Taco Recipe

I always think of pork as “the other white meat”. I did some searching on the web today to see if pork really is considered a white meat. It’s actually a red meat … the article I read said pork is a red meat and called it “pink”. I did read, however, that some cuts…

Roasted Salmon Tacos

Instead of Taco Tuesday for tomorrow night, we had Mexican Monday tonight. I had already planned on making chili for dinner for Tuesday because San Diego is expecting a winter storm … lots of rain and wind will be coming our way. The rain actually started this evening, it’s so cozy! Last week I watched…

Balsamic Chicken over Mini Heirloom Tomato Caprese Salad

It’s almost the end of summer, but it is still summer. School is starting up soon, if it hasn’t already for some kids. I keep hearing on t.v., “summer is almost over”, and I think to myself “where did the time go”. This year, summer seemed to fly by. I think in part, for me,…
