I haven’t made a dessert like this in a while and it was DELICIOUS!!!  I’m guessing David liked it, too, since he ate three bars at one sitting.  No, it’s not gluten free.  But it was worth every bite.  You’re going to want to make this - as soon as possible.

Baked Salmon (GF)

Baked Salmon

I’m new to the world of salmon and still trying to find great recipes.  My go-to is simply salmon brushed with olive oil and sprinkled with lemon pepper and then baked in the oven or on the George Foreman.  But I like variety – even if I’m not eating it (not a fan of fish).  So here’s my latest find which David said was one of his favorites so far. Ingredients: 2 cloves garlic 6 … [Read more...]
