Here are 10 delicious side dishes for you and friends to enjoy at your next barbecue. An added bonus? We’ve included drinks that can be taken along: Read More

Dinner for the week is a hard choice to make in general, especially in the warmer months when it’s too hot to even think about turning on the stove or oven. You also don’t want to feel weighed down when it’s warmer out, leaving the heavy stews, carbs, and soups behind. Seafood is a great alternative for dinner during the week, and it’s a wonderful way to have a lighter meal. Seafood and fish are so versatile and it’s great that you can mix and match flavors to create a different meal every weeknight. Whether pan seared served with vegetables or testing out your chef recipes and making a ceviche, seafood can add a different twist to your every day dinners. Here are 10 satisfying seafood recipes to make for dinner this week.  Read More
