Baked Tilapia with Sauteed Spinach

Thursday, March 29, 2012

I don't know if you noticed that I've
been trying to post a new recipe
each week, I'm trying new things and
everytime something actually works I like to share.
Hopefully, I'll have new and exciting recipes
for you each week.

I'm trying to eat very healthy lately
and have been eating a lot of fish too.
This recipe is quick, easy, delicious and
good for you. I hope you enjoy it as
much as I do.
Happy Cooking!

Baked Tilapia
4 tilapia fillets, fresh or thawed
2 tablespoons of your favorite seasoning (I used a taco seasoning mix)
2 tablespoons olive oil

Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees. In a baking dish, place the tilapia fillets, sprinkle the seasoning and drizzle the olive oil on top. Bake for 10-12 or until the fish is flaky. Serve warm.

Sauteed Spinach
2 cloves garlic, minced
6 cups fresh spinach
2 tablespoons olive oil

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add the olive oil and garlic, saute for about 1 minute. Add the spinach and saute until the spinach is wilted. Remove from heat and season with salt. Serve and enjoy.

Homemade Ice Cream

Thursday, March 22, 2012

I love trying new recipes, I love when
it actually works and it's delicious too.
I stumbled upon this recipe for homemade
ice cream at Cookies & Cups,
make sure to check this fabulous site.
The recipe is super easy and you can
make into any flavor that you like,
I added strawberry preserves into mine.

2 cups heavy cream, very cold
1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
* optional ~ 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
* additional ~ 4 tablespoons strawberry preserves

- In your stand mixer (a hand mixer does the trick too) with whisk attachment on high speed beat your cream until it becomes stiff, approx 1 minute 30 seconds.
- Fold in your sweetened condensed milk.
- If you are adding in extras, do that now.
- Transfer to a container with a lid and freeze for 6 hours.

- don't beat the heavy cream for too long, otherwise you'll end up with butter.
- I found this recipe a little too sweet, next time I'll try the sugar free condensed milk.
- Remember this recipe is for a vanilla ice cream, but you can make it to any flavor that you like, just like I did.

It's been a while since I shared a recipe here,
I thought it was time again to share something
delicious with you.
As always, it's quite simple and easy
to make.

1 small white onion, diced
1/2 bell pepper, diced
2 plum tomatoes, diced
1 cup broccoli, chopped
1/2 cup white mushrooms, sliced
8 eggs
1/4 cup milk
1 1/2 tablespoons of bisquick
salt and pepper
1/2 cup finely shredded Colby and Monterrey jack cheese

Pre-heat the oven to 425 degrees. In a large bowl, combine the veggies and eggs, beat together. Add the milk and bisquick, beat again. Season with salt and pepper. Pour mixture into a 8x11 buttered baking dish and cover with aluminum foil. Bake for 30 minutes until the eggs are set. Remove the foil and sprinkle the top with cheese, bake for an additional 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and serve it warm. Enjoy.
