The good thing about eating Salmon is being able to do so confidently: it's such an easy, healthy fish to cook with and can really be manipulated to hide fishy tastes! You really can't go wrong with this easy glaze, I cook this all the time when I need something made quick that doesn't look like such.

PREP TIME: 15 Minutes

COOK TIME: 30 Minutes (25 Bake, 5 Broil)

1. Let's Get Rid of the Reason You've Been Scared to Try Fish! 

Personal Photo

Start out by defrosting your salmon fillets and soaking them in milk for 10-20 minutes. I find more expensive pieces of Salmon don't require this as much, but cheaper frozen bags with smaller fillets usually do. This removes a lot of that fishy flavor that's hard to appreciate.

2. Prep Your Baking Sheet

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Take a baking sheet or a deep pan and line it with aluminum foil. I'll usually do a light layer of salt, pepper, and lemon juice on the foil just so the salmon isn't going down "dry". It adds a nice seasoning to the skin.

3. Prepare Your Marinade

While the oven is heating up, whisk and thoroughly mix in a bowl all glaze ingredients including the salt, pepper, mustard, lemon juice, soy sauce, honey, teriyaki sauce, olive oil, and brown sugar. I usually place the fillets in the glazed bowl for 10 minutes just for a quick "marinade".

4. Time to Marinade/Season Your Salmon!

Place the fillets on the foil and pour a gracious amount of glaze on top. Finish by sprinkling Parsley and/or Thyme seasoning on top, as well as a little more lemon juice. Additional salt and pepper can be added to taste.

5. Cook and ENJOY.

Bake for 20-25 minutes at 350 degrees or until fillets are cooked through. After, take some of the remaining glaze in the foil and baste the salmon, then broil at 525 degrees for three to five minutes.

Let cool, and serve!

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
