Silky Salmon with Mustard Dill Sauce!

D discovered this lovely recipe recently: https://theartoffoodandwine.com/oven-baked-salmon-with-mustard-dill-sauce The sauce is the star. It is creamy with dill and mustard notes. I can taste the flavors with the recipe as is, but I (J) recommend adding more mustard and dill for those with dulled taste buds. D made asperagus and baked potato as well, and the …

Beautiful Biscotti (Cranberry Orange)!

D chose to make the cranberry orange biscotti from these recipes: https://kristineskitchenblog.com/classic-biscotti-recipe/ J can taste the orange and cranberry flavors and the biscotti crunch makes for a lovely dessert. Not exactly sure why. Maybe citrus or tart flavors are still tastable? (Is tastable a word?) D added more flavor and some visual excitement by dipping …

Heavenly Ham and Asparagus Strata!

Silky, creamy, ham-filled, quiche-like goodness! Not super strong flavors for me (J) but still very tasty. This recipe is a winner! https://www.simplyrecipes.com/recipes/ham_and_asparagus_strata/ D added twice the thyme and we loved it. The semi-crisp bread-cube crust on top, combined with the ham and cheese and the rest, made for a sumptious bite. D made plenty because …

Mmmm Mexican Street Corn!

This Mexican Street corn recipe is MMM MMM Good! For someone who has dimmed tastebuds, there are some nice flavor notes and textures in this recipe: https://letsdishrecipes.com/mexican-street-corn-torchys-copycat/ D used a serrano pepper instead of jalepeno and that gave it a nice punch of heat – but not too much – for us. In step 2, …

Sweet soy Ginger Salmon Bites!

D developed this recipe from bits of others and it is so yummy! Love the marinade/sauce. For J, the flavors border on the subtle side but are still quite enjoyable. The Nori sheet under each portion and the sesame seeds in the marinade/sauce give the bite a crunch. The ginger, honey, scallions and soy sauce …

Perfectly Pan-Seared Cod in White Wine Tomato Basil Sauce!

D just discovered and made this recipe and the flavors were yummy! https://bakerbynature.com/pan-seared-cod-in-white-wine-tomato-basil-sauce/ The combination of lemon, lemon zest, red pepper flakes and garlic (which is hard for J to taste), was so good! D replaced the cherry tomatoes with the sliced regular-sized tomatoes . Be generous with those slices of tomatoes because for those …

Truly Tabbouleh! (with couscous)

This has been a favorite of ours for years and since J lost his taste buds, it’s especially been a good recipe. It uses couscous instead of bulgur. The pungent parsley, mint, and onions topped with the lemon juice give a wonderful punch of flavor. Enjoy this favorite of ours! Tabbouleh 1 cup couscous 2 …

Helluva Honey Mustard Chicken!

If you want a crispy chicken thigh with a zesty sauce, try this Honey Mustard Chicken recipe: https://www.delish.com/cooking/recipe-ideas/a38285301/honey-mustard-chicken-recipe/ D didn’t cook the veggies with the chicken and the sauce and chicken were excellent as a stand-alone with separate vegetables. She pan-fried the chicken to a wonderful crispiness, juicy inside. The clever thing about this sauce …

Super Soy-Ginger Salmon Pasta Bowls!

This pretty dish is packed with flavor that D enjoyed and J can taste! Woo hoo! https://www.foodandwine.com/soy-ginger-salmon-pasta-bowls-7109430 Note that D replaced the recommended pasta with orzo, which we loved.
