Questions I get asked all the time:
1) What floats to the top of the favorite article pile for the year? (see below for the 2018 fave list)
2) Do writers gather material for their contest submissions at Kerrian’s Notebook? (yes)
3) Are the crime fans looking for information that explains a particular book they are reading or a movie they have watched? (yes to both)

Happy Sleuthing, everyone!
The doc says I need to eat more vegetables. Sheila has been telling me that for years, but when the doc tossed his two bits into the checkup conversation at his office, I sighed and promised to eat all the broccoli on my plate. He frowned and told me that more than broccoli had to be on the menu. The guy does not have a sense of humor. I’m a grownup and figured I could pick and choose my eats, but evidently not anymore. He says it’s good for my heart though, so I’m all in.
I have to admit that Sheila has come up with some tasty ways to meet the goals – like the zucchini quiche and the tomato cucumber feta salad. Some veggies can be served steamed and/or with butter – like yellow squash or green beans. Broccoli, on the other hand IMO, needs some help. Here’s Sheila’s solution and with lots of taste testing, gets a ‘thumbs up’ from me.
St. Patrick’s Day will be here before you know it, so we are gathering our recipes and making decisions about what to cook for our own dinner and what to take to the weekend parties. Since the big day falls on a Saturday this year, we know for sure that both Friday and Saturday will be nabbed as great days and nights to celebrate.
Why did we choose Salmon Quiche for this year’s entry into the tasty dishes? On each of our trips to Ireland, we visited coastal cities. The seafood is abundant and we ate some of the best fish dishes in our lives while there. The pubs on the coast offered some kind of salmon dish – entrée or sandwich or croquette – at every place we stopped. We thought it would be great to figure out a recipe that could make use of leftover cooked salmon, or canned salmon, and be adapted to appetizers or eaten at a brunch. This quiche can be both.
Slainte Mhaith! (Good Health!)
Serve it with a salad and enjoy!
Nobody died while taste testing the salmon quiche variations. There may have been swooning and salivating, because we do love salmon.
