Big Exciting News: My Upcoming Cookbook

78727

I have some big news. Very big news!!! For those of you who have not heard, I am working on a cookbook, and the manuscript is due September 15th. It is more work than I ever imagined, and I can’t thank my kids, family and friends enough for their understanding during this busy time.

It is a very “big” book. When I say “big”, I mean it. 400 recipes. The book will be out spring 2011.  It is a very exciting time, and I couldn’t have done any of this everyone’s awesome support. I cannot thank you enough.

I will blog more about it in the coming months.  Stay tuned . . .

Healthy and Light Salmon in Under 30 Minutes: Salmon with Orange Salsa

IMG_3325

I’m always looking for new recipes and ideas on how to prepare salmon since we eat it so often. I have been beyond incredibly busy lately with work, kids and more work. I love this recipe because it’s so easy and fresh and can be prepared in under 30 minutes. Plus, it’s really light and healthy. I made this recipe for NBC 13 “Daytime Alabama” that will air this month, and it is one of I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter’s wonderful recipes that I tweaked (just slightly) for TV.
