Sweet and Spicy Roasted Salmon

I'm a salmon fan.  I could eat salmon every day of the week.  I don't, but I could.  I know salmon isn't everybody's favorite, but eating salmon is so healthy for you that I encourage you to find a recipe or two that works for you.  That way, salmon can be part of your menu rotation.  My hubby isn't a big salmon fan.  He eats it when I make it because he's good like that.  Whenever I'm serving him salmon I use a recipe that packs lots and lots of flavor so he'll be distracted by the flavor and forget he's eating salmon. An Easy, Delicious Salmon Recipe Sweet and Spicy Roasted Salmon That's where this recipe began.  I was making salmon for Hubby and me and I wanted to change it up a little. The recipe is so easy I'm a little embarrassed to even call it a recipe.  I think it is a little different, in that the combination of ingredients for the topping is not one you might usually think about making.  This sweet and spicy topping, mad

Slow Cooker Pot Roast for Dinner

I bet you love to serve a pot roast for dinner every once in a while.  I certainly do, especially as the weather turns to cooler temperatures.  The cool temperatures of fall make this a great time to break out your slow cooker.   As you probably know, pot roast is most often made with a chuck roast.  Chuck is flavorful, but a relatively tough cut of beef.  The key to a delicious pot roast is to use flavorful ingredients and to cook the roast till the cows come to speak.  That makes pot roast a perfect recipe for the slow cooker.  A long, slow roast is necessary to break down the tough connective tissue.  You want to cook your roast until you can pull it apart with a fork.  No knife should be required.   A Tender, Savory Pot Roast Made in a Slow Cooker (I include affiliate links to products for your shopping convenience.
