Fave find Friday: Food 52

I don't know about y'all, but it isn't really easy for me to find a consistently great site for recipes.  It's a bit of a Goldilocks syndrome, too frou-frou, too indulgent, too healthy, too #basic, too technical, too expensive, too boring.

This is all until I started subscribing to Food 52.  This is one recipe site that I love.  It's really easy for my to find Paleo recipes (95% of my diet) but then there are some really lovely and indulgent recipes too.  And most importantly, the ingredients tend to be reasonably priced and readily available at my very humble local supermarket.

I cook most of my meals at home which means that it's pretty easy for things to get a little boring.  Not only do they have really delicious, in season recipes, but they also do little articles to teach technique and improvisation.  I'm a BIG fan of improving in the kitchen (usually by necessity) so their articles like "how to make yogurt biscuits without a recipe" are really great for people like me.

Oh gawd, I'm trying to pick out some of my most favorite recipes to share with you and my mouth is quite literally watering!  Let's hope I make it through this post.

Here are some of my most favorites:

Crispy coconut kale with roasted salmon and coconut rice.  Kale, salmon and rice get a lot of play at my house but this recipe upped the ante a bit.

Grilled peach and apricot salad.  We probably have 10 salads a week so this was a nice little change, plus the Milkman can share the grilled fruit with us.

Salmon moqueca, a lovely little fish stew with lots of flavor.

Chicken breast with fresh sage. This recipe inspired me to grow my own sage. Don't be impressed, the poor plant hardly lasted a month.

And the next recipe I try will most definitely be a Scotch egg.  Crispy on the outside, gooey, yolky goodness on the inside.  How DO they DO it?!

Bon appétit!
