Grouper en Papillote

Grouper is one of my favorite fish, most likely because I grew up eating fried grouper sandwiches as they are kind of the staple meal of coastal-Florida living. I knew this simple Greek recipe would be perfect for my stay back home. The fish was delicate and moist and the vegetables got nice in soft

Cornbread Salad with Buttermilk-Lime Dressing

Snickerdoodles

Snickerdoodles

I have tried my hands at countless creative cookie recipes, yet, I still haven’t made some of the classics. Well, today I’m able to check a quintessential cookie recipe off of my “never made” list- the snickerdoodle. I
