Cucumber Dill Salmon ~ pan seared salmon topped with a creamy cucumber dill suace. Light, easy, healthy weeknight dinner ready in just 20 minutes. 

Repost: recipe remains the same. 

With the holiday season coming, I really try to eat a little lighter before the onset of all the goodies. Emphasis: try.

That means incorporating recipes like this Cucumber Dill Salmon. Pan seared salmon, topped with a tangy, creamy cucumber dill sauce made all in the same skillet. 

Light, easy 20 minute healthy weeknight dinner so elegant you can easily entertain with it.

A few ingredients come together to form the cucumber dill sauce ~ sour cream, heavy cream and mayonnaise are not among them.

Turkey Meatballs and Marinara ~ juicy turkey meatballs simmered in rich homemade marinara. Serve with whole grain pasta for a delicious, healthy meal.

If you think beef is the only way to go with meatballs, think again. Turkey Meatballs and Marinara are pan-seared then braised in rich, robust marinara for a dish that not only your family will love but it’s classy enough (if you’re the type that has classy friends) for company too.

While I could be perfectly content with old-school marinara my husband is a card-carrying carnivore that needs meat and actually believes it improves his life. Who am I to argue?

These turkey meatballs won over the carnivore who calls them “fowl balls“. I can’t make this stuff up. They’ll win over your pickiest eater, too.
