Lemon Butter Salmon

This easy salmon recipe is just great for busy weeknights when you need to make something quick. Cook some rice while the salmon is searing, and your filling dinner is ready in no time. On top of that, you probably have all the ingredients in your pantry to make this delicious dish.

Salmon is my favorite fish, and even though I don’t eat it very often, I always enjoy salmon recipes. I’ve already shared two of my favorite salmon recipes on Cooktoria (Salmon in Roasted Pepper Sauce and Salmon Burgers), so I thought that today we could go back to basics and talk about how to make classic lemon-butter sauce and how to sear salmon. With a few simple tips, your salmon can be perfectly crispy on the outside, moist and tender and flaky on the inside.

Baked Salmon with Buttery Honey Mustard Sauce

In the winter aren’t we all using the oven to cook salmon (grilling just isn’t happening in this 20 degree whether)?

It’s such a simple foolproof method to cook salmon and it always yields deliciously tender, flavorful results (as long as you don’t over-bake it!).

Of course salmon is good on it’s own spritzed with a bit of fresh lemon but of course it’s just that much better with a second layer of flavor, by finishing it with a bright sauce.

This sauce couldn’t be easier to make. No simmering and reducing, no lengthy list of ingredients, and no 30 minute marinating – all you need to do is blend a few simple ingredients and you’ve got a sauce that will take salmon to next level goodness!

The Best German Chocolate Cake in All the Land

Seriously. This is the best German chocolate cake I have ever made. In fact, it’s the best cake that I’ve ever made period. And I’ve made a lot.
In the few months since I first invented this recipe, I’ve made it so many times by popular demand that people are no longer requesting “that one German chocolate cake”. Now it’s just “Yammie, will you bring your cake this weekend?”


It’s here: the raw cake of my dreams. Raw Vegan Carrot Cake!

It’s tender, it’s cakey, it’s naturally sweetened, it’s topped with an optional but swoon-worthy vegan cream cheese “frosting,” and it’s all yours in just 10 basic ingredients and 30 minutes. Let’s do this!

Lemon Chicken Piccata With Grilled Bread

Is it just me or is chicken starting to be awesome again?

Through the last few years, Pinch of Yum aka my-personal-self went through a phase of chicken rebellion. I was doing things like creating meals with plant-based things like MUSHROOMS or NUTS or TOFU. Okay waaaait I still really love mushrooms and nuts and tofu and I am definitely still a part-time vegetarian with a deep love for the whole plant-based thing. Exhibit A.

But somewhere between the garlic and basil // the lemon and capers // the gold standard of BUTTER: me and chicken are back in business over here.

And today I’d like to present to you with my latest chicken favorite which is, in essence, juicy chicken breasts coated in a white wine lemon butter sauce situation and dotted (overwhelmingly dotted, if you will allow it) with those irresistibly briny capers. My mouth is watering. WAH TER ING. 👅

Oh, chicken piccata, you beauty, you.

Marble Cake

When you’re not sure whether you should make chocolate cake or vanilla cake, marble cake is the answer. It’s the best of both cake worlds! Chocolate and vanilla swirled together. A total win for everyone!

This recipe starts with my favorite vanilla cake. You’ll love it because it’s so incredibly soft and moist, and easy as can be to make in just one bowl.

Divide the batter into two separate bowls and and stir half of it together with a mixture of cocoa powder and water.

Then just fill your cake pans with alternating spoonfuls of each, and swirl together!

The Best Damn Fruitcake Ever

Raise your hand if you like fruitcake. No one? We’re right there with you. This Christmas classic has gotten a seriously bad reputation over the years, but we at PureWow are determined to change that. We kept all the best parts (tons of fruit and nuts, great boozy flavor) but tweaked the recipe so that it takes less time to make and results in a much more appetizing treat. Our tip: Bake a loaf before Christmas so you’ve got one less thing to worry about the day of.
