Joy Bauer’s Pumpkin Pancakes

Autumn is finally here, and with the changing of the leaves, so changes my diet to include more pumpkin. It’s practically a requirement, am I right? Really, pumpkin is an extremely healthy ingredient (rich in the anti-oxidant beta carotene) that could (and should!) be used year-round. There is just something about this time of year,…… Continue reading Joy Bauer’s Pumpkin Pancakes

So in this recipe, I’m using imitation lobster meat which actually turned out to be pretty tasty. It’s made out of Alaskan Pollock. But anyway, this is…… Continue reading Lobster and Citrus-Fennel Salad Rolls
