When I was growing up, my Grandma Donna would always make twice baked potatoes for me. They were my favorite. So, I decided that I had better find her recipe and make some for my kids. My version has a little twist, however. It includes your favorite magical meat….BACON!!!! This recipe is simple and super delicious! Though it takes a little longer to make than a simple baked or mashed potato, it is totally worth it your time and effort. This may even be a great recipe to try for your Thanksgiving dinner!!!
Dana and I are always on the lookout for easy and delicious weeknight meals. One protein that we usually never touch is fish. Mainly because I have had my fair share of bad salmon and other seafood. Recently, Dana’s mother made an oven-baked salmon that was super tasty. I had to have her recipe because it was absolutely delicious. Luckily, she was kind enough to give it to me and now you will benefit from this tasty recipe also. It is simple and quite scrumptious. The lemon rich marinade helps remove any fishy taste from the salmon. This is definitely a must try, especially if salmon is not your favorite dish but you are open to trying it!
