Classic French Toast doesn’t take much to prepare. And we would never knock it as a great starter recipe for young kids wanting to thrill Moms with breakfast in bed on Mother’s Day.

My favorite fish dish nods subtly to Middle Eastern ingredients in this recipe for Falafel Crusted Salmon. Continue reading
