Try grilled chicken with an Hawaiian flair

Try grilled chicken with an Hawaiian flair

By Jim Bailey theyankeechef.blogspot.com Literally meaning “turn turn,” Huli Huli Chicken is a mainstay in Hawaii.

Cod and mango salad healthy and satisfying

Cod and mango salad healthy and satisfying

By Jim Bailey theyankeechef.blogspot.com My kind of salad! I chose cod because it has the lowest fat content of any fish and cooks rapidly. Tilapia is also a great white fish for this recipe. But what I truly love about this dish is the beautiful presentation as well as a “feel good about yourself” result. […]
