Fish, friends and chemistry

Mondays have turned into a weekly study session for me and a dear friend of mine. We are both taking chemistry this semester and enjoy each other's company so it makes sense lol Well, I found out she isn't the best cook in the world (which just means she needs more practice) So I decided at our weekly study sessions that I would cook for her and show her some of my easier delicious recipes so she can surprise her hubby when he comes home from deployment :-) she told me she isn't the biggest fan of fish, so naturally that's what I made for dinner for us last night teeheehee. We had broiled parmesan crusted tilapia, chips and hummus and salad (of which we only ate the croutons). This fish recipe is one of my hubs' favorite meals and he was happy I brought home leftovers for him lol needless to say its way easy and family approved :-) here's the recipe:

4 tilapia filets
1/2 to 3/4 c shredded parmesan cheese
1/4 c butter
3 Tbsp Mayo (I used a lithe version)
3 Tbsp lemon juice
Garlic powder (or granules), onion powder, salt, pepper, and basil to taste.

1) heat broiler
2) cover cookie sheet with foil and spray with non stick cooking spray
3) lay fish onto cookie sheet
4) mix all other ingredients in a medium sized bowl
5) drop equal amounts of cheese mixture onto each fish filet and spread to cover entire filet
6) place in oven and broil for 6-10 minutes until the topping is nicely browned and fish flakes easily
7) serve and enjoy :-)

In a mood

Ever get in one of those moods where you just want to bake? Today that seems to be all I want to do, however I only have 2 eggs and a quarter cup of butter.......slightly limiting ingredients for baking anything....or so I thought. I found a recipe that doesn't require those ingredients! I made a chocolate chip cake today and am quite pleased with the result :-)

Tank's least favorite part of the day

Dinner time for hubs and I means time for Mr. Tank to be out of the dining room.....we just started learning this rule, but obviously from his pouting he is not a happy puppy.

Steak and veggies and liquid smoke?

Well, we are out of charcoal, but hubs and I wanted steak tonight anyway. Well I bought some liquid smoke last week and was a little nervous to use it.....well today it worked!!! And was delicious! Lol I put a little apple cider vinegar, liquid smoke, Worcestershire sauce, olive oil, garlic granules and onion granules in a bag and let the steaks defrost and marinade all day...tossed them in the broiler for 3 min per side and we had a lovely marinated steak dinner :-)

New to blogging, but I am excited to start :-)

Well, this is my first official blog that I have ever made :-) I decided to start a blog because I was worried some of my friends were getting sick of seeing pictures of our dinner each night. I enjoy cooking and am excited to have a place to post pictures without irritating or having my friends get sick of me too quickly hehehe See ya all soon!!
