I'm a human being on planet earth. I've lived hundreds of lifetimes. In this incarnation I'm here to advance medicine.

1. Ok, Earth Balance… this is pretty tasty:

But you’re not the first one to combine coconut and peanut butter:

(I’m probably not either).

I really have to make that Vanilla Bean Coconut Peanut Butter again!

2. Yes, I’m reading this book.

Monday Musings + Mahi Mahi Tacos (revisited)

Chances are you have read it, are currently reading it, or have heard about it.

After being put at spot 368 on the wait-list at the library, I went ahead and purchased the trilogy – the first book of which I’m about half way through.

Now, let’s just lay it all out on the table, shall we? The writing is amateurish, the character development is practically nonexistent, and the plot is almost laughably unrealistic. However. Just like the Twilight series, this trilogy will pull you in and you’ll have no choice but to read all three books back-to-back. And I hear there is a movie deal in the works. I’m still trying to settle on the perfect actor to play Christian Grey…

3. I’m really glad I read George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series because I’d be totally lost in the HBO adaptation (Game of Thrones) without having read the books.

In any given episode, you’re following at least 4 different plot lines each featuring about 5-10 characters. If I had it my way, I’d spend an hour every Sunday night watching Jon Snow take on the evils beyond the wall, but alas there’s a whole lot more going on in Westeros.

4. Cinco de Mayo is this coming weekend, and to celebrate I’m sharing my recipe for Mahi Mahi Tacos over at The Back Burner.

Welcome back to another edition of Monday Musings! This week, we’re revisiting a classic favorite with a twist – Mahi Mahi Tacos. These delicious tacos are not only easy to prepare but also a great way to kick off your week with a burst of flavor. So, let’s dive into this delectable recipe and get those taste buds dancing.


  • 4 Mahi Mahi fillets (about 6 ounces each)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 ripe mango, diced
  • 1/2 red onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 jalapeño, minced (remove seeds for less heat)
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Salt and pepper to taste


1. Prepare the Mahi Mahi:
  • In a small bowl, mix together the minced garlic, ground cumin, chili powder, paprika, salt, pepper, and lime juice to create a marinade.
  • Place the Mahi Mahi fillets in a shallow dish and coat them with the marinade. Make sure both sides are well covered.
  • Let the fish marinate for about 15-20 minutes while you prepare the salsa and other toppings.
2. Make the Mango Salsa:
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the diced mango, red onion, red bell pepper, jalapeño, cilantro, lime juice, salt, and pepper.
  • Gently toss everything together until well mixed.
  • Taste and adjust the seasoning, adding more lime juice, salt, or pepper if needed.
  • Refrigerate the salsa until it’s time to assemble the tacos.
3. Cook the Mahi Mahi:
  • Heat a skillet or grill pan over medium-high heat and add the olive oil.
  • Once the oil is hot, carefully place the marinated Mahi Mahi fillets in the pan.
  • Cook for about 3-4 minutes per side, or until the fish is opaque and easily flakes with a fork.
  • Remove the fish from the heat and set it aside.
4. Assemble the Tacos:
  • Warm the tortillas in a dry skillet or microwave for about 20 seconds to make them pliable.
  • Place a scoop of shredded cabbage or lettuce on each tortilla.
  • Add a slice or two of avocado.
  • Top with a Mahi Mahi fillet.
  • Spoon the mango salsa generously over the fish.
  • If desired, drizzle with sour cream or Greek yogurt.
  • Garnish with lime wedges for an extra burst of citrusy flavor.
5. Serve and Enjoy:
  • Serve your Mahi Mahi Tacos immediately while they are still warm.
  • Don’t forget to squeeze some fresh lime juice over the top for that final touch of zing!
