Baked Garlic Lemon Salmon | Recipe
Growing up in a Portuguese household, it wasn’t uncommon to have a fish dish for dinner. However, the one type of fish my parents did not do was salmon. Only when I got older did I notice that salmon was often served at the special events that I would attend and after eating “one bad one.” It was a dish that I stayed away from but it was time to go back to salmon.

Zucchini Lasagna Recipe
Lately we have been trying to make better eating choices and this meant eliminating some traditional dishes. We haven’t had cheese in a very long time and wanted to have it for a special dish.

This was one of the food items that I have eliminated from my eating lifestyle so I thought why not try a Zucchini Lasagna!
