Slow-Cooked Salmon with Chickpeas and Greens

Slow-Cooked Salmon with Chickpeas and Greens

We leave for Madrid in 48 hours.  While there, I plan to eat my weight in cheese, ham, and bread, so I figured I should pack in a few relatively healthy dinners now.  Enter this salmon with chickpeas and greens.  Healthy, easy, and so good, I made it twice in two weeks. Figuring out what to pack for…

Salted Caramel Apple Cider

Salted Caramel Apple Cider

I think I need a couple more glasses of this Salted Caramel Apple Cider in my life. What we have here is a glass of warm, salty caramel, apple goodness. The fact that I can make this at home is almost enough to make me forget that a certain international coffee chain overlooked Thailand in its quest for pumpkin…
