Bonefish Salmon Asparagus Salad

My all time favorite meal is Bonefish Grill Salmon Asparagus Salad. Since I can't afford to dine at Bonefish when I am craving a salad I decided to make my own! It turned out great, I was ecstatic!! It was fairly simple too.

Grill Salmon (seasoned in basil and Extra Virgin Olive Oil)
Steam Asparagus
Mix spring baby greens in Citrus Vinaigrette (orange, lemon, olive oil)
Top with goat cheese and pine nuts

I also love Bonefish Pomegranate Martini! So I found the recipe for that too and whipped on up! This turned out REALLY REALLY GOOD!
2 oz. vodka
2 oz. POM Pomegranate Kiwi
1 oz. Simple Syrup

For dessert and weekday snacks I made Pumpkin  Chocolate Chip Granola Bars, smell and taste heavenly. I found the recipe here:

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Granola Bars
3 1/4 cups rolled oats
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
¾ cup brown sugar
½ cup pumpkin puree
¼ cup applesauce
¼ cup honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup chocolate chips
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray an 8 by 8 baking pan with cooking spray and set aside.
2. In a large bowl, whisk oats, spices, and salt together. Set aside.
3. In a medium bowl, whisk brown sugar, pumpkin, applesauce, honey, and vanilla extract until smooth. Pour over oats and stir well, until all of the oats are moist. Stir in chocolate chips.
4. Evenly press oat mixture into prepared pan. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown. The pumpkin keeps the bars moist, so make sure they are golden and set-you don’t want them to be under baked. Remove from oven and let cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes.
5. Using a sharp knife, cut into bars. Remove from pan and let cool completely.
Makes 10-12 granola bars

Molasses Cookies
Original Martha Stewart Recipe made healthy

  • 1 1/2 cups (spooned and leveled) whole wheat pastry flour

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1 cup packed light-brown sugar

  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce

  • 1 large egg

  • 1/4 cup light unsulfured molasses

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt; set aside.

  • In a large bowl, with an electric mixer, beat sugar and butter until combined. Beat in egg, then molasses, until smooth. On low speed, gradually add flour mixture until a dough forms.

  • Drop rounded measuring teaspoonfuls of dough onto two ungreased (or parchment-lined) baking sheets, about 1 1/2 inches apart. Sprinkle dough with sugar.

  • Bake until centers are dry to the touch, 12 to 15 minutes; rotate pans from top to bottom and front to back halfway through. Cool 1 minute on baking sheets; then transfer to a rack to cool completely.
