RecipeTime - Salmon & Lemon Bucatini with Brussels Sprouts

Image via Blue Apron
There is nothing I love more than loosing myself in the kitchen. More often than not it is by way of baking a batch of my favorite cookies - I am just not that confident as a cook. That is why I love when I get Blue Apron and for a few times that week channel my inner chef. I especially love when I discover a recipe that hits it out of the park and can easily be recreated without hunting down obscure ingredients. Enter the Salmon and Lemon bucatini pasta dish with Brussel Sprouts and toasted breadcrumbs. (This recipe is also perfect if opting to stay in this New Year's Eve whether hosting for two or a small group you will be sure to impress!)

Tis the season to be over-committed and overextended. Especially when it comes to keeping your spending in check. Being from a big family I usually limit Christmas gift giving to immediate family only. However, there comes a time when you want to give some of those that make the tough times a little sweeter just a little nod. Maybe you have your work squad or maybe you are part of big group of friends that all exchange gifts. That is when this list comes in!
