Musical Monday: Workin’ it Like a BOSS.

10 Dec

KateUpdates Like a Boss
The past few weeks have been pretty busy for me. I’ve been doing a lot of introspection and I’m attempting to figure out where I want to transition to career-wise … I’ve really been enjoying the journey so far and I think I’ve almost got it figured out (for now). I actually just started public relations and social media consulting again and I have my first client :) (!!!) So that’s pretty sweet. OK it’s really sweet.
I’m working on several projects so I want to give you a preview into what you can expect over the next few weeks …
  • More recipes. If you’ve noticed less frequent recipe highlights it’s simply because I haven’t been cooking as much. I’ve been sticking to staples that I’ve already shared with you because I’ve been busy. The good news is I’m back in the kitchen as of tonight so I’ll have some yumminess to share with you very soon.
  • A Paleo Christmas cookie round-up. Similar to my Thanksgiving round-up but more delicious because it’s dessert.
  • Cross-fit & Yoga– I’m just beginning this but my plan is to complete daily workouts in the AM M-Sat. A friend shared an amazing resource with me that you should definitely check out. It’s called BodeeFit. Why do I love it? Because they send you daily workouts (with videos!!), a weekly Paleo recipe and it’s by one of my *favorite* Paleo bloggers: PaleOMG. I want to really press into the whole yoga thing this week. We’ll see how it goes …
  • Launching a website. This will be a professional site for my public relations and social media business. I still need to think of a name so if you have ideas, send them my way.
  • Moving my blog so that it’s self-hosted (more details TBA) – I’m almost positive I’ll be making the move from a WordPress.com to a WordPress.org site. Basically, I’ll have more control over the resources I can offer when you stop in and I’m going to beef up the comments section to make it easier for us to interact.
  • YouTube – I’m going to be making some how-to videos about eating Paleo and more. I’m realizing that not everyone has read/learned about Paleo and some videos on it might be good. I’m really excited to share them with you! They’re coming soon so watch for them.
  • Blog Tips and Social Media tools – I’ll be coming out with Pt. 2 of my blogging series soon (you thought I forgot didn’t you …) I’ll also share some social media tools to make your life easier.

Oh and since it’s Musical Monday, here’s my current running mix:

Campaign Victory OR Comfort Food: Maple-Glazed Peppered Salmon Recipe (YUM!)

7 Nov

Yay! The election is over … Now we feast.

Whew, yesterday was crazy. It was harder to do the no TV for 30 days thing with all the election stuff but I checked Twitter and news sites to keep informed. Whether your candidate won or lost, I thought you could use the delectable Maple-Glazed Peppered Salmon recipe below. It’s seriously DELICIOUS. The catch is, you can’t really it it for dinner tonight, you have to wait until it marinates.

Enjoy!

Maple-Glazed Peppered Salmon

It’s Paleo. It’s delicious.

1. Here’s what you’ll need:

Image

Salmon. This can be frozen or fresh (it tastes best with fresh but frozen is wasn’t bad.)
Maple Syrup
Coconut Aminios (or soy sauce if you aren’t eating Paleo)
Freshly Ground Black Pepper
Large plastic, resealable bag.

2. Here’s what you’ll do:

Put Salmon in plastic bag. Add 1 C Maple Syrup and 1/4 Coconut Aminios (or soy sauce if you aren’t eating Paleo) and then seal the bag. Carefully work the bag so that the liquids mix.

Next, open the bag and let as much air out as possible so that the bag starts hugging (aw cute) the fish. Make sure the glaze mixture covers the fish at least halfway. Put in the fridge, on a plate, for 12-24 hours (up to 48 is fine if you want to have it for dinner 2 nights in a row), turning the bag over to glaze the other side, halfway through the process.

The longer you marinate, the better. You can actually have this for dinner 2 nights in a row or dinner and then lunch. Believe me, you’ll want to have it more than once.

Save the pepper for later, when you bake.

3. Done marinating. Time to bake!

Preheat your oven to 500 degrees. Take your fish out of the fridge and grab a cookie sheet or baking dish and cover it with foil.

4. Get that fish in the oven!

Next, place the desired amount of filets in your dish and begin grinding the pepper so  it completely covers the filet(s). Now, put it in the oven for 10 minutes – you’re all most done!

5. Time to feast!!!

Plate the salmon with your favorite veggie or a salad and enjoy all your (not hard at all) work! This is a great recipe for a romantic dinner or dinner party too. It will totally impress the people you’re cooking for.
