Day 3 of #TripleSBites! Today let’s talk about making sacrifices for love. For example, I cannot tell you the number of times I get scoffed at for not liking seafood with the pretense that since I am a food blogger I should love everything edible. Well I hate to break it to you but I don’t love all foods. I only love the ones that I like to eat which happens to be quite a lot, it just doesn’t include things such as seafood, pickles, and coffee. However, that doesn’t stop me from utilizing those things in the occasional recipe, especially when I am cooking for someone who will greatly appreciate it.
Salmon is my sacrifice. It is the last thing I think of when picking a protein for dinner. Chicken, beef, pork, and even tofu occur more frequently than any kind of fish in my kitchen. In fact I think this is only the third fish recipe I am sharing on the blog. Since my salmon cooking skills have not been truly tested I rely on simpler, foil-proof recipes. Pun intended as this is a recipe for foil-wrapped salmon. This Greek-style salmon was incredibly easy to throw together and while it baked I whipped up some orzo to go with it. I have to admit, I didn’t hate it. In fact it was quite good. It seems great sauces makes nearly anything pleasing to the palate.

These fluffy lemon bars are so good you will find yourself rationalizing that such a light dessert just might be healthy. It’s all in perception right?
Well, well, well, looks like my Buckeyes wanted to make sure my first day on the new job was one to remember! What a game! So excited for Ohio State to be the first College Football Playoff National Champions!!! I would have never anticipated this to happen after hearing that our starting QB was injured right before the start of the season. Neither would I have dreamed of it after losing to Virginia Tech and then again after almost losing to Penn State. Losing our second QB to injury right before the conference championship game. The controversy of selecting Ohio State over TCU or Baylor. Worst of all, the tragic death of Kosta. The list of things this team has had to overcome this year is just craziness and the team stuck together through it all and proved everyone wrong. Add it to the list of reasons I am proud to be a Buckeye.
Going along with this new job of mine, you probably noticed the decrease in the amount of posts I share each week. I apologize for not feeding the addiction, providing daily fixes but until I can get back into a groove and have my kitchen fully organized (and not in boxes randomly dispersed around the floor), I regrettably will not be able to post as often. Lucky for you before getting the flu, traveling to Rochester for Christmas, and NYC for NYE, and moving to Ohio, I was able to whip up a few things to tide over some of the gaps. Bear with me as most things are sweets, such as these lemon lush bars, and may not abide by your new years resolutions. Just eat some healthy in compensate, that’s how it works right?
