I’m back in the kitchen
Trying to re-start my cooking mojo having been laid up for a year. Looking forward to spending some time in the kitchen and a little time at the dinner table. This is my warm up first dish in a long time, Salmon with beetroot, feta and lime salsa.
Spicy Shrimp Sheet-Pan Dinner
Beyond healthy, this low carb diet is starting to be fun. Trying new low carb recipes and finding winners such as this one from the Betty Crocker recipe site should show results very soon. Certainly seeing the weight start to drop helps but it helps a lot when the meals are satisfying as well.

Israeli Spice Chicken
This simple dinner dish is so full of flavor and so very easy to make you will want to add it to your list of "Go To" dinners. For best results, plan a little ahead so the chicken can absorb as much of the spice as possible as it sits overnight.
For a change up on a warm evening cook the chicken on the grill.
Serve with a herbed couscous pilaf and seasoned carrots.
Curried egg salad with pickled beets

So fast and easy for a weeknight dish, it only takes 15-20 minutes from start to finish. Give it a try, I think you will really like it,

Not what I had planned for Thanksgiving week but it ended on a positive note with a visit in the room from Dr Mark Cucuzzella.
