It can be intimidating to try new recipes, especially when you’ve perfected a healthy and beautiful recipe such as Giada’s Whole-Wheat Spaghetti with Lemon, Basil and Salmon. It can be difficult to find new recipes that are nutritious and simple to make, and the unknown is always risky — what if a new recipe isn’t as crowd-pleasing as your old standbys? I’ve taken the stress out the search for you: here are a few dishes to try when you’ve tired of the norm – these recipes are healthful, delicious, satisfying and fuss-free.

If you’re ready to switch up your salmon for a different fish, try this seared tilapia. Tilapia is a mild and flaky white fish; the real flavor in this dish comes from the gremolata – a piquant blend of fresh mint, garlic, lemon zest and pepper flakes – that dresses both the asparagus and fish for a refined and healthy dinner.

    Hey, when you going to hire Dennis Rodman to replace Paula Deen? He can use the N-word and you won't touch him, will you? Paula apologized, when are you people going to get the message you need to too?

    Get real, Paula never used the N-word on her show, and no one has come forth to say that she used that
    word on front of them. She wasn't bragging about it, she was under oath in a court of law, would you rather
    she lie about it?. I don't think she should be punished for something she said privately thirty years ago. Can
    any of you swear that you have never said a dumb thing and regretted it?

    I lived in the South in the Dixie's.."unless you grew up and lived there" not wise to judge others.. And she has grown way beyond those formative years into a talented, giving woman who deserves better than her accusers are "dishing out."
