Healthy & flavorsome Baked Chipotle Lime Salmon with Mango Salsa. This meal takes only 30 minutes to prepare and is the perfect weeknight meal

I think this Lunar Eclipse has got me feeling all kinds of feels. This past week was rough. Part of it was just me being moody, and the other half was life happening.

I’ve been missing my family and friends more than usual. Just meeting for a quick cup of coffee is no longer an option.

I’ll be honest, the best part of my day is cooking dinner and sharing what I make with you guys on Instagram Stories. It truly brings me so much joy, and in turn my husband is happy too since he gets a home-cooked meal. 🙂

It’s nice to be part of a community with like-minded people who share the same passion as me. I want to thank you all for supporting me and giving me a purpose. If it weren’t for my blog and you guys, I would be lost.

I’ve loved creating dinner recipes living here in SoCal. There’s definitely been a shift in the way I cook from when I was single to now. I’m sure you’ve noticed fewer eggs for dinner, and more real meals.

That’s what happens when you’re cooking for a man, you start catering to their taste cause eggs for dinner aren’t gonna cut it. Thank heavens he cleans though. 🙂

This Mexican inspired Baked Chipotle Lime Salmon with Mango Salsa is absolutely incredible. You’ll want to get up and salsa, and the perfect pick me up meal. Give it a try and you’ll know what I’m talking about.

    Made this yesterday and it was absolutely delicious. I loved that is was quick to pull together. My husband inhaled everything. We are adding to our weekly rotation particularly during summers when mangos are in season.
