Portuguese Egg tarts (Nata)

They may not be pretty, but they are oh, so good. A few years ago now I had the opportunity to spend close to three weeks in Lisbon.  The trip was unexpected and I had done almost no research.  Portugal was not on my “must see” list and I certainly hadn’t expected to be there

Easy One Pan Salmon and Asparagus With Herb Butter

Why didn’t I think of this sooner? Every single time we have a discussion at home about eating healthier fish races to the top of the list.  We make our list, head off to the store (typically Costco) and fill our freezer with any assortment of fish that is preferably a sustainable catch and ethically

Julie’s Too Good To Be True Honey Mustard Chicken

Winner, winner, chicken dinner and if this is wrong I don’t want to be right were my two other obvious choices for this particular recipe.  Kudos first of all to my friend Julie who introduced this to my family a few months back.  I was out of town for an extended period caring for an

Alligga Flaxseed Oil Review and Avacado Toast

I was really fortunate recently to have been given the opportunity to try some products from Alligga’s line of oils and roasted seeds.  In return they’ve asked for an honest review to be shared on Socialnature.com, and here we are. Full disclosure, I like trying new things and I like different foods.  Except haggis, that’s
