Recipe Review "Honey Salmon In Foil" from Damn Delicious

The other night I wanted to try something different for dinner.  I wanted something easy for an after work meal.  I found "Honey Salmon in Foil" on Pinterest from a website called Dam Delicious.

Looked easy and yummy so I decided to give it a go.  I studied the recipe and gathered my ingredients…
Honey Salmon in Foil
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes
Yield 4 servings
A no-fuss, super easy salmon dish that's baked in foil for the most tender, most flavorful salmon ever!
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced (I used garlic powder kv)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 pounds salmon
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together honey, garlic, olive oil, white wine vinegar, thyme, salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Place salmon onto prepared baking sheet and fold up all 4 sides of the foil. Spoon the honey mixture over the salmon. Fold the sides of the foil over the salmon, covering completely and sealing the packet closed.
  • Place into oven and bake until cooked through, about 15-20 minutes.*
  • Serve immediately.
*Baking time may need to be adjusted depending on the thickness of the salmon. 

Extremely easy and yummy.  I would give it a 9/10 on my cooking scale.

Recipe found on Pinterest…"Slow Cooker Hawaiian Meatballs"

"Slow Cooker Hawaiian Meatballs" found the link on Pinterest and followed it to a site called Six Sisters Stuff.  Looked yummy, and easy, so I thought I would give it a try…I gathered my ingredients

Slow Cooker Hawaiian Meatballs Recipe
32 oz. package of precooked, frozen meatballs (you could use turkey meatballs)
13.5 oz can of unsweetened pineapple chunks (put juice aside)
1 large green pepper, diced
1 cup of brown sugar
2 Tbl. cornstarch
2/3 cup of white vinegar
2 Tbl. Soy sauce
Followed the recipe…
Place meatballs in crock pot and top with green pepper and drained pineapple chunks.  In a separate bowl, mix reserved pineapple juice, brown sugar, cornstarch, vinegar and soy sauce.  Pour sauce over meatballs, pineapple and green peppers.  Cook on low for 3-4 hours or until heated through.

It was easy and good.  I served it over rice.  It is sweet so you need the salty from either rice or noodles.  I would give it an 8/10 on my cooking scale.  I did kinda remind me of Hawaii:-)
Try a new recipe.  I suggest you find one on Pinterest.
Happy cooking and Pinning everyone!

Monday Morning Motivation "In Peace I Lie Down"

The alarm goes off,  I get up, say hi to Brodie and then brew my coffee.  Coffee is my comfort food:-)  Then I shower, pour myself a cup of java and get ready to spend time with God.  I usually read a devotional, then the Bible, and I sometimes use an online devotionals that I have subscribed to.  It is a wonderful routine that  can set the tone for the day.  (To be honest some days I have to push myself but 99.9% of the time I look forward to this daily routine)
I am reading a devotional by Holley Gerth.  "What Your Heart Needs for the Hard Days." I liked Chapter 2, "God Makes Sure Even the Darkest Night Leads to Dawn"
Holley asks,  in regard to difficult times...
"What's going to happen?"  
"How will this work out?"
"Do I have the strength to get through this?"
Questions we all ask ourselves when going through a painful times.
She answers this question with a Psalm
"In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, Lord make me dwell in safety"
Psalm 4:8
It is a comfort to know that God does walk beside us and guides us and gives
 us rest, (sleep), even in the hard times.  Thank you Lord:-)
Happy Monday Everyone
Enjoy Your World
