Parmesan Tilapia

17 Jul

Pretty good. 4 stars.

 

Okay, so if you want an easy, simple meal, that is tasty, this is it!  I would recommend if you are just making food for one person, quarter the recipe, because it makes a LOT! Also, it says to put it on the fish within the last 5 minutes; I would say, probably you can put it in sooner.  This was really good though.  Just be aware, that it might take a while.  Start to preheat the oven quickly and then you won’t have to wait as long.  Definitely 4 stars for this one, enjoy!

Omurice

6 Jul

4 1/2 Stars! Try it!

Here’s a pretty well known fact about me.  I love Japan.  I love Japanese food.  There has rarely been a Japanese dish that I haven’t liked.  Omurice no exception.  Basically it’s a rice omelet and it’s HEAVENLY!  I first found the recipe on YouTube and now it’s a comfort food essential for me.  I always try to get my mom to try it but she’s a bit of a wimp when it comes to new foods so she won’t do it.  One of the great things about this meal is that it’s really easy.  I’ll post the video from YouTube, which teaches you how to make it, but I’ll list what I did differently right now.

This is how I make omurice:

1.  Fry the rice in Teriyaki sauce.

2.  Add canned chicken or tuna into the fried rice.

3.  Make the omelet.

4. Wrap the omelet and the rice up.

The original recipe calls for onion, sugar and consomme powder but I never use those.  Seriously though, try this recipe.  It’s filling and super satisfying.  You won’t regret it.

Bow Tie Pasta with Broccoli Pesto

3 Jun

4 1/2 Stars! So good!

 

So with this recipe, it was pretty much just one of those inspired ones. We bought pesto in a jar, cooked noodles (any type works) according to directions, used chicken in a can (we shredded it), added the prescribed garlic and went to town. We pretty much just cooked the noodles, drained the water, and threw the ingredients in the pot until it looked good. We poured some lemon juice in, spooned in the pesto, threw in some salt and pepper and then steamed some broccoli for the side. Although this was a super simple, fairly quick meal, it was pretty delicious! We gave it 4 ½ stars. We also made it more than once. (It was that easy and that good).

Crock Pot Chicken Chili

3 Jun

5 stars! Try this recipe! So good!

This meal was AMAZING! The smell filled our apartment throughout the day and by the time we got to eat it, it was worth the wait. It didn’t take too much time to prepare, just the chopping and cutting and what not. We left out the chili peppers and put less chicken (we ran out of room in the crock pot) as well as a little less cumin and chili powder. We also put in only one can of tomatoes with chilies, and included one can of just plain tomatoes. It was still a bit spicy, but quite a bit milder. I guess it really depends on your preference of hotness. Remember to drain every can of anything that you put in, it makes a difference. Even with two less chicken breasts, this meal served the two of us for about a week, along with a couple bowls for other people. On top of that, small portion sizes are really filling. We gave this meal 5 stars; it was great all around!
