Stuffed Tilapia


You know I try to use up everything in my freezer and pantry. Throwing away food bothers me. Not only for the amount of money I am wasting but I feel guilty about the energy, animals and everything else that went into making or growing the food I bought. I was cleaning up the freezer…

Beer Battered Fish and Chips


My kids love having food from different countries. When I first mentioned making Fish and Chips the first thing they asked me to do was to get Malt Vinegar for the chips (fries). To make this dish a bit healthier, and I mean just a little bit, I made oven fries rather than deep-frying them…

Spring Break and Tilapia with Balsamic Butter Sauce


It is Spring Break here in Southwest Michigan.  The temperature actually broke 60 this week.  Things are definitely looking up.  We don’t travel during Spring Break because our job demands do not match up with the school calendar.  This is a heavy work time for me and I really can’t take vacation until after May…

Fish Cakes


Other than fresh fruits and vegetables another item my family needs to eat more of is fish.  We all actually like seafood very much but I just don’t tend to cook it that often.  I am going to start striving to incorporate seafood at least once a week in our meals.  I know fried fish…

Blackened Fish Tacos with Baja Slaw


Still looking for a quick, tasty dinner that you can have on the table in about 30 minutes?  This is perfect for those nights when you need to feed have dinner on the table quickly. Verdict: This was an over the top hit.  My children love Tilapia because it is a very mild fish and…

Blackened Fish Tacos


This past weekend we attended an Irish Festival in Big Rapids, Michigan.  It was the first year of this festival and it was quite a bit of fun.  But we did not get back home until 1:15 am Saturday night.  It threw the rest of our weekend out of order and by last night I…

Crab Topped Tilapia


Last night my family and I went through many of my blog posts from the past 2 years.  It was fun talking about all the meals, what we liked and what we didn’t.  It is amazing the memories tied to food.  My children could tell from a meal if they were there for it, where…

Lemon Butter Tilapia


Some nights I am fighting myself to find something quick and fairly healthy to feed my children.  I am just like every other mom in the world, busy.  Tonight’s dinner was tough.  I am trying to get ready for Thanksgiving, to go away for a few days and keep the kids on schedule for their…

Tilapia with Lemon Butter Sauce


I am trying to get my family to eat more fish.  I keep seeing reports that we should eat fish 2-3 times a week.  I can barely get them to eat it once a week.  Even then it is usually met with “the face.”  You know “the face” – the scrunchy nose, the pursed lips…

Crunchy Baked Tilapia


When I make fish for dinner it is usually Tilapia because it tends to be a milder fish and it is often on sale at our local grocery store.  I can usually get a pound for less than $3.00.   I usually have 2-3 lbs. in my freezer at any given time.  It is my goal…

Dorito Tilapia


I needed a dinner within half an hour on the table.  Standing in front of the open refrigerator and freezer (I now know where my children get it from) I finally gave in.  I tried the Cheeze-It Chicken a week or so ago after seeing it on Pinterest.  Now, the snack food fish. My son…
