Avocado Tuna Melt

The tuna melt is a classic lunch choice.  I hadn’t had a tuna melt in a loooong time, and for some reason I just developed a hankering for one. But of course, I could not just make a plain ol’ tuna melt. I decided to make a fancy schmancy, upscale tuna melt. I was just…

Maple Glazed Salmon with Almonds

A couple of months ago, DH and I went out to dinner with some friends to a really nice local restaurant.  It is one of those small and kitschy places, where they really go out of their way to create a dining experience for you, as opposed to just serving you some food.  We don’t often…
