So as you know, I’m down with Team Slim & Trim! I started a 29 Day Health Challenge to promote healthy eating and exercise. We’re 15 days in and I’m feeling good. My friend Allana Singh is one of the best cooks I’ve ever encountered. Let me tell you how good she is. Oneday, Allana said to me on a Sunday, “Come over after work. I’m making beef short ribs.” With excitement, I headed on over to her apartment to find the most succulent short ribs I’ve ever had BUT let me add that she made them in her TOASTER OVEN!!!!! Yes! Her stove is out of commission so she used what she had and she did a damn good job, so now we have her new cooking show; Toaster Oven Dreams.
For our Team Slim & Trim challenge and for Valentine’s Day, Allana cooked up some Curry Coconut Salmon that is just unbelievable. Here is the recipe you must try and the video is very easy to follow. Next time, Allana will be showing you guys how to cook up some goodness in her toaster oven. I hope you guys like it.
