Spicy Glazed Salmon

Spicy Glazed Salmon from www.EverydayMaven.com

I have been having a bit of a recipe resurrection moment. Or, maybe, it's just that I have been on a bit of an organizing kick and finding recipe ideas in random places where they probably shouldn't be. Last week it was all about the recreation of my Vietnamese Herb Salad with … [Read more...]

Before you run away screaming, hear me out. I know, it's chicken livers. They are crispy and spiced but, still, liver. There are some people who genuinely enjoy them, but I think it's fair to say the majority of us just are not instant fans. I know for me, I grew up around … [Read more...]
