Summer (food) should be uncomplicated

While the wind was whipping around outside on Sunday my mom and I had a nice dinner together at home. It was so cozy to cook dinner with my mom and hang out around the kitchen filled with a million delicious scents.
The wine was poured first and set out while we cooked. A salad made of cucumbers and tomatoes straight from the garden with feta cheese and olive oil.Salmon baked with butter, garlic and dill. Its super easy to make. Start by melting butter in the oven with garlic cloves. When there are butter-bubbles add the salmon skin-side down and bake for 5 minutes at medium heat, then flip over. Add dill and bake for three more minutes. Thats all!All the best late summer flavors of veggies and herbs from the garden, fresh fish and a nice glass of wine. Everything was flavored very simply, perfectly fresh and uncomplicated.

  1. Mmmm, these simple recipes sound delicious! I am addicted to feta. I love cheese in general (who doesn't?) but I could eat feta in particular every single day.

  7. Ah delicous. This is exactly the kind of meal I love eating all summer long. + that salad is one of my favorite things to eat always- & with home garden veggies it's even better! Also I like how you're both drinking different wines. hehe :)
