Heart Tartare, Puttanesca Style

If you're on a low-carb diet, you can also exchange those crackers for cabbage but make sure it is CABBAGE, not NAPA because the CABBAGE needs to be strong to support the sauce!

Muir Glen canned roasted tomatoes?

This Brand of Tomatoes ROCKS! It comes in many varieties, with many spices and different consistencies! I also REALLY LOVE their tomato paste: I eat it with a spoon right out of the can: YUM! Plus I have heard that tomatoes in a car are much healthier for you because they have concentrated vitamins as appose to regular tomatoes just sitting in the produce section of your grocery store. I have seen these canned tomatoes is every one of my grocery stores so I do not think you have to worry about ordering them on line! Look in your natural food section in your grocery story pronto and get to cooking!!!

Favorite unusual toppings for vanilla ice cream?

I think melted peanut butter or peanut butter cups would be amazing on vanilla ice cream. or perhaps melted crunchy m&ms.

Salmon recipes needed!

my father has always made this amazing dish where he takes a shallow baking dish (after heating the oven to 450 degrees) oils the bottom a bit and places salmon in it. Then he makes clam sauce (you can get a recipe for clam sauce anywhere) and pours it over the top of the salmon and then bakes the whole dish until the salmon is cooked and the clams are a bit crunchy! granish with parsley and VOILA! You can make this with multiple salmon fillets too, so all those frozen fillets will work wonderfully! And you can have left-overs because left-overs are ALMOST BETTER!! :) You can also make this dish with ANY other types of fish, but I think salmon works best!

Pan-Roasted Halibut with Caper Vinaigrette

This sounds really good! Too Bad I probably cannot make it with a toaster oven and microwave? Or maybe I can!!
