European Crepes aka Blinchiki (GF version also)
The whole house gets filled with a warm sweet-bread-like aroma as fresh crepes are cooked, thin round sheets of goodness slathered with butter. Crepes are heavenly just with a healthy brushing of butter but the most simplest way we enjoyed them growing up was folded into triangles and dipped into homemade jam or preserves.
European Whole-Grain Waffles with Gluten-Free Version
The smell of fresh waffles in the morning is just irresistible! Waffles are a special treat for our family and any leftovers get reheated in a toaster and enjoyed just as much.

My love for salmon was born while living in Alaska and enjoying a bounty of fresh Alaskan salmon. We got so picky choosing between pink, red, silver and king salmon. Our favorite was King salmon, bright red in color, rich in good fats and flavor beyond all descriptions.

Gluten-Free Lemon Tart
Lemon Tart is a sophisticated version of lemon pie. The difference is, there is a minimal amount of filling in the tart, just enough to balance the flaky texture of the homemade crust.
