December food

My favorite month of the Winter and my second favorite month in the year. I love all the festive food that we are cooking for Christmas and New Year celebrations. I’m totally felt in love with simple comfort food. My California December brought me dozens of new fresh veggies to cook from. And I had time to try a lot of the interesting recipes.
12.06. Slow Roasted Salmon with Fennel
I’m a fish addict. When I was a child, my dad brought a lot of river fish each weekend. And I loved it! Eugene is totally another kind of person. Before we started to live together, he told me he hates fish. Now I’m trying to change his mind. At the beginning of the month, I picked Slow-Roasted Char with Fennel Salad 12.06.
