Chicken Enchilada Sandwiches - Solid Gold Eats

Turning a chicken enchilada dish into sandwiches? Why not? I’ve been turning some of my favorite foods into a newer version of themselves (Taco Pizza, for example) because if the flavors pair well together, then HOW they are arranged can change, right?

Baked Wild Alaskan Salmon with a Mustard Dill Sauce - Solid Gold Eats

Salmon is such a pretty fish to look at before you eat it. The color is just outstanding and almost unreal, that rather someone painted a square on my plate with acrylics or watercolors, not that a piece of fish is lying before me. That’s the wonderous science of food. It comes in all shapes […]
