Sauteed Cabbage and Leeks with Pancetta

Ireland has more varieties of cabbage then I’ve seen anywhere else in the world. Crumpled, crinkled, smooth, in different shades of green, red, and purple. Boiled, sauteed, fried, and roasted in soups, stews, or on its own as the star of the show, always paired

Oven Baked Fish with Herbs and Lemon (Gluten & Dairy Free)

Oven Baked Fish with Herbs and Lemon (Gluten & Dairy Free)

Fish. Yep, I said the ‘F’ word. How many of you love fish but avoid cooking it at home because you HATE the lingering odor of fish? And for an even better question, how many of you avoid cooking whole fish, simply because you didn’t
