Nikki-Amazing Salmon dinner

I’ve been spending so much time in my kitchen I decided to try out at least one new recipe a day when I have days off. This week I made some things off of pinterest and out of The Looneyspoons Collections- Janet and Greta Podleskiare amazingly talented.  You can find a few of their recipes  featured on their site, I’ve also tried the Fee, Fie, Faux Fried Chicken and loved it as well (I even substituted skim milk instead of the buttermilk they called for and it was still great!)

   Also a big thanks given out to Megan for giving me this cookbookLooneyspoons_Cover(New) for a house-warming gift!

I’ve been on a major calorie counting streak and I’m really enjoying trying all these new and healthy recipes I’ve found.  I love cooking so I find it rewarding to cook soemthing that is healthy and delicous and that I can share!  

If you like Salmon you have to try this!

This was probably my most favourite salmon of all time, and I love a good teriyaki salmon.  I also made sweet potato fries and coconut rice out of the cookbook and both were amazing as well!
