I’ll be honest, I didn’t always know the best sides for fish dinners, and as a result, I think that I may have made some poor choices in my pairings.

A few years ago, almost nobody was asking how to be a barista. Coffee has gone through a very interesting set of changes over the last few years, however. Whether it’s due to the internet, the explosion of Starbucks, or the rise of a new generation is a mystery. No matter what the reason is, there’s no denying that we’ve seen an uptick in highly skilled individuals working at local coffee shops.
One of the advantages of preparing your own meals is your ability to control exactly what you’re eating. At a restaurant, I have no idea how much salt, butter, and sugar the cook is adding. At home, I can dictate the levels of each ingredient to my liking. I don’t have to guess whether a meal is wheat or gluten free, how much added sugar there is, or what kinds of fats are in my dinner.
