Sarah’s Yummy Salmon

Written by , Posted in Guest Posts, Thoughts

I have known Sarah for about a year. In that time, we’ve shared many meals and good times together. Often they take place at one of our homes, and the guests get to bring something to go along with the meal. I must say that between the two of us, we’ve come up with some really great dinners! I’m so thankful for my new(ish) friend!!

Here’s Sarah!

Growing up the only cooking I did was when I was babysitting which means I had a Masters in Mac ‘n Cheese and take & bake pizza.  After college I had an apartment with a roommate, but neither of us saw the point in cooking for one (since we cooked separately) so we unfortunately continued to stay proficient in “bachelor pad” type food.  I dabbled every once in awhile on dinner guests, but nothing beyond basic.  Then I met a boy who I vowed I would do anything to get him to keep him around.  I had no idea what that would require.  One Saturday afternoon I invited him over for dinner.  I then proceeded with the question, “What are you hungry for?”  Now – I have since been told Ishould have said, “Would you like OPTION A, OPTION B, or OPTION C for dinner?”  With a completely seriously straight face my handsome boyfriend said, “Chicken Cordon Bleu.”  Oh boy.  I swallowed and then began googling.  This was my official initiation into cooking.  It turned out tasty and my confidence came alive.  Now please do not go blog searching for me and my cooking site because you will be sorely disappointed.  I am no amazing cook.  I only know how to read a recipe and get creative here and there with spices…look out!

I enjoy cooking and have a great appreciation for those who have mastered it.  I may not be the next Julia Child, but I do give myself the occasional challenge such as buying a meat I have never cooked before and finding a recipe including it.  I’m hoping when my kids are grown they will not remember having the same 4 rotating dinner dishes, but a nice array of palate pleasers that cultured them and taught them to appreciate good food.

One of the favorite dinner requests at my house is HONEY SOY SALMON.  It’s quick and super tasty.  My husband loves soy sauce so anything that has a hint of it plus a mound of white rice on the side could cure any bad day in his book.  Give it a try – you will not be disappointed!

(For the hopeless romantic reader – that handsome boyfriend eventually asked me to marry him. :))
