Cinnamon-Spiced Fish Tagine with Raisins and Capers

A few notes about this recipe: You can use any type of white fish, but I'd urge you to try something other than tilapia. Sure, tilapia is well-liked due to its low cost, wide availability, and mild taste that plays to its versatility and makes it a highly recommended first foray into seafood for non-fish eaters. But why do you think it's so cheap, so available, and so, well, lacking in flavor? Due to farming practices, of course. Tilapia are easy to mass-produce because they eat pretty much anything, which means farmers can get away with feeding them a lesser quality diet that is certainly not like what they'd eat in the wild.

Stupid-Easy Pesto Salmon

Stupid-easy salmon.Really, that’s what this is. So easy, it’s stupid.

Even though you only need a tiny amount here, leftover pesto actually freezes really well, so you can easily store it away for another day. Or, you can opt to slather it on everything from pizza to pasta to sandwiches…create your own adventure!...more

Walleye and Rice Cakes

One of my "fridge struggles" is finding something to do with leftover food, especially with common leftover items like rice and pasta. The other night I had two items on hand: leftover wild ancient grain rice, and fresh walleye from a fishing trip with my dad.So off to the kitchen I went, and concocted this recipe. It was a crowd pleaser even for the most difficult to impress -- like our dad, who calls everything we make "hippie food." Even he loved these cakes....more
