Citrus Oven Baked Salmon over Arugula Cucumber Salad

This citrus oven baked salmon salad is bright and fresh with crunchy roasted chickpeas and a delightful zesty dressing that is going to have you coming back for more!

This is the recipe that changed our lives!! Our very first week of being totally unpacked in our new place, it was time to get back in the kitchen and cooking again. I’ve felt so out of it with the stress of moving and when our oldest daughter mentioned she really wants to learn to like fish so she can incorporate some healthier foods into her diet, I timidly said yes.

I’ve hated salmon since the day I was born but I do secretly wish seafood wasn’t such a nemesis of mine so I jumped in. In the past I’ve liked it ok, but this citrus baked salmon salad absolutely sold me! It’s all about the flavors so do not substitute other seasonings unless you’re crazy.

I adapted this recipe from Tiffany Angela.

Ingredients for Salmon Salad

I’m going to recommend not substituting any of these ingredients because each one has an important role in bringing all the flavor to your plate! I’ve divided the ingredients into categories – dressing, salmon, chickpeas and the salad. Don’t get overwhelmed! None of the ingredients are weird or har

Welcome to the weekend, my friends! I have big big news today. Some of you caught on with last week’s sneak peek – as I can tell by the recent flood of new email subscribers over there we launched a BRAND NEW WEBSITE this past month!

VegetableRecipes.com is up and running and if you are anything like I am, this is exactly what your meal planning needs! 

ON THE BLOG this week: Peaches and cinnamon pair perfectly in this recipe for Baked Peach Oatmeal. Eaten on its own or topped with whipped cream, it’s a hit. Anytime I bake peaches into something it reminds me of my favorite peach cobbler or crisp. What’s not to love?

Cabbage Soup with Sausage is loaded with great flavors and it’s filled with far more vegetables and meat than broth. Today, I’m giving you the first new soup recipe for the fall and I couldn’t be more excited about it – Italian White Bean, Cabbage, and Sausage Soup.

Sweet fresh peaches are baked between layers of brown sugar and oats to form a chewy sweet crust for these irresistible Peach Oatmeal Bars. It only takes a few minutes to stir the crust together and press half of it into the pan. Toss the peaches in sugar and spices and layer them over the crust. Sprinkle the remaining buttery crumbles over the peaches and pop it in the oven.

Sweet Potatoes with Sausage is an easy-as-can-be one pan dinner that my family would willingly eat every night. Weeknight meals especially need to be quick and easy, not only on the prep but the clean-up as well. This easy sheet pan dinner with baked chicken thighs, baby potatoes, and fresh green beans has become a favorite in many of your homes over the past two years.

What I’m CRAVING: I’ve been craving this Mango Corn Salsa ever since I made it. My original plan was to share it with my family, but after the first bite of sweet mango, crunchy corn, and mildly spicy jalapenos, I might as well confess that I stashed the rest of it in the back of the fridge for later snacking. This Watermelon Salsa is on my radar now  as well and I can’t wait to try it.

My FAVORITE THING this week is my new waterpik. This water flosser is so very cool! Put it on your Chr

Sweet Potatoes with Sausage is an easy-as-can-be one pan dinner that my family would willingly eat every night.

I get it, weeknight meals especially need to be quick and easy, not only on the prep but the clean-up as well. This easy sheet pan dinner with baked chicken thighs, baby potatoes, and fresh green beans has become a favorite in many of your homes over the past two years.

Sheet Pan Sausage and Potatoes

Tender sweet potatoes, crisp bell peppers, sweet onions, and spicy sausage are roasted together in this simple and flavorful meal that my family just can’t get enough of lately.

I make a variation of this sheet pan supper at least a couple of times a month. I typically use whichever sausage I have in the refrigerator: andouille, kielbasa, spicy chicken, pork, or beef links will all work well.

Sweet potatoes and peppers have become a go-to combination for their savory yet sweet qualities. Roasted sweet potatoes get perfectly soft inside with a crispy exterior. The bell peppers and onions bring a nice peppery bite and a layer of flavor.

There are a few tricks to your sheet pan dinners coming out perfectly. You want all of the ingredients to be perfectly cooked and not have something be almost uncooked and raw and another item turned to mush.

It has taken me a bit of tinkering with the size of the pieces and the amount of time in the oven to master the perfect combo. But let me tell you. . . I think I’ve nailed it this time.

Start with sweet potatoes cut into 1/2 inch pieces. Coat them in olive oil and roast for 20 minutes by themselves on the sheet pan. Then stir them around and flip them on the pan before adding the sausage, peppers and onions.

By doing this in two steps you will get the perfect soft yet crispy sweet potatoes. Along with properly cooked sausage and nice slightly charred peppers.

The last time I made this, I used cheese and jalapeno stuffed chicken sausage, so your favorite sausage should work as well. I always have assorted sausages on hand just for meals like this; most unopened sausage will keep in the refrigerator for quite a while before needing to be used.

Peach Oatmeal Bars

Sweet fresh peaches are baked between layers of brown sugar and oats to form a chewy sweet crust for these Peach Oatmeal Bars.

Anytime I bake peaches into something it reminds me of my favorite peach breakfast. Peaches and cinnamon pair perfectly for your next family breakfast.

Fresh, sweet and so juicy peaches are the most amazing treat when they’re perfectly ripe. A ripe peach will have a sweet peachy smell to it and the skins will slide right off when you peel them.

What I absolutely love about these oatmeal peach bars is that they do use fresh peaches. My preference when baking is to use real fruit as much as possible.

Most peach bar recipes use a preserve or jam for the filling. That is fine but it gives the bars more of a dessert-like sometimes too sweet quality in my opinion. Real fruit-filled bars I can justify enjoying for breakfast.

Peach bars travel easily to my kids’ activities and events. Bonus, they always get rave reviews when we share them.

I love how nicely they freeze as well. I highly recommend keeping some on hand for those last-minute, “hey mom I need. . . ” requests.

Peach Bars

Sweet and cinnamony peach bars are so easy to make. It only takes a few minutes to stir the crust together and press half of it into the pan.

Toss the peaches in sugar and spices and layer them over the crust. Sprinkle the remaining buttery crumbles over the peaches and pop it in the oven.

Peach Breakfast Bars

When baking with peaches I have noticed a difference in white peach and yellow peaches. I noticed that white peaches were not baking up the same as yellow peaches. They were losing their shape and really cooking down in the dish.

After some research, I learned that white peaches actually have a high sugar content, which explains why we l
