Guys. I know that we all like tacos. But these tacos are like…..well, you’re going to love them. They’re so good. Every once in a while I made a recipe and it turns out even better than I thought it would. This was one of those recipes. It takes a bit of time (ahem…pickling vegetables), but it’s worth it!Read More
Is there anything that doesn’t make a good taco?? I just realized that 3 of the 4 taco recipes on my website are seafood-based. These salmon tacos were inspired because some gorgeous wild salmon was on sale at Whole Foods a month or so ago. I bought a pound, sliced it into quarters and froze it. Each quarter can become it’s own special meal. The first went into an Asian-inspired bowl with greens and caulirice and avocado. One will be covered in a creamy dill sauce inspired by our plethora of homegrown dill. But with one I wanted to make some delicious and simple salmon tacos.Read More

Since I live in Denver, I decided that it was time to put together a Foodie Travel post for this great city! The ironic part is that I cook so much, I never feel like I know where to go out to eat. This means that my husband and I tend to frequent the same places over and over. Buuuut, when it got down to it, and I started making a list, I realized there are some really amazing places here, and you should visit them on your next trip.
Denver is a great city to visit year round. The winter is fairly mild, but of course all the winter sports enthusiasts will be happy to head up to the mountains for skiing and snow boarding. But in rest of the year, Denver has some super fun neighborhoods to wander around, and some amazing hiking is just a short drive away.Read More
In my early 20s I lived in a big townhouse in Nashville, TN that we fondly named The Suga Bin. I'm not sure how it got it's name, but I lived there with 4 other girls and we had so.much.fun. We had a giant deck with 2 grills, and I was starting a cupcake company, so between the grills and the baked goods, our place was the chosen location for many gatherings.Read More
The first time I ever had a fish taco was when I lived in Nashville, TN during college. Growing up in Iowa, fresh fish was not a big part of our diet. And to me, a taco was seasoned ground beef with lettuce, shredded cheddar cheese, black olives, and salsa in a crispy tortilla. So the idea of a piece of fish in a tortilla didn't actually sound that great. Ummmm....so I was wrong. Crispy fried fish and creamy slaw in a tortilla is awesome.Read More
