Parmesan Breaded Tilapia

Hi Guys, for the recipe today I made Parmesan Breaded Tilapia.  This recipe today is easy to make as well as inexpensive.  Everything in this recipe can be bought from Aldi (my favorite store) and take just minutes to make.

For those of you who are not real fish eaters (like me) this is perfect for you.  Tilapia has such a mild fish flavor to it that you don’t know you are eating fish.   It takes on what ever spices you use and is very delicious.





4 Tilapia filets

1 ½ cup parmesan cheese                            d0062161-d116-455d-96a9-ef253a91ac50.jpeg

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp onion powder

1 tsp parsley

2 cups panko

Salt and pepper to taste


Mix together the panko, parmesan cheese, and parsley until well incorporated.

Season the Tilapia filets with the garlic powder, onion powder and salt, pepper to taste.

In a non-stick skillet add about 1 teaspoon of olive oil on medium heat.

Add in the tilapia but don’t over crowd the pan.  Cook 5 minutes on each side until the outside golden brown.   Repeat until all filets are cooked.

Serve with side of your choice

Egg White Muffins

Hi Guys, here is another easy recipe for you.  We have made some egg muffins just using egg whites.  We are always on the go at my house and breakfast is the last thing we think about, so here is a recipe for all of you who don’t have the time to eat a good breakfast.




2 green peppers

½ of an onion                                            2558BC1F-F7F4-49AC-8C48-900948364806

1 tsp. of mince garlic

1/4 tsp.  of black pepper

4-5 slices of bacon

1 small carton of egg whites


Pre-heat oven 350 degrees

Spray each cupcake tin with cooking spray.

Dice green peppers and the half of onion.

In a non-stick pan, put a teaspoon of olive oil and let the pan pre heat for 2 mins. Then dump vegetables into the pan and sauté them for about 3 to 4 minutes or until onions start to turn translucent.

Then add the garlic and continue to cook for another minute or so.  Turn off heat and let the vegetables cool down.

Then cook the bacon until crispy. Place bacon on paper towel to cool and pat dry using another paper towel to remove access grease.  Then chop bacon into pieces.

Place about 2 tablespoons of the vegetables in each of the greased cupcake tin.

Then sprinkle the chopped bacon  into each cup.

Pour the egg whites over the bacon and vegetables about halfway up in each cup.

Bake for 15-17 minutes



Strawberry Sorbet (Just 3 ingredients)

Hi Guy, I have another awesome recipe for you to try.  This is some that is great on a hot summer day.  It is easy in inexpensive to make.

Due to dairy allergies in my house I am having to find other ways to have ice cream and things like that so this is some that I came up with Strawberry Sorbet.




1 small bag of frozen strawberries

3 tbsp. sugar (can be substituted with agave)

1 cup coconut milk


Pull all ingredients into a blender and blend them until you get a smooth consistency.  Put into a freezer safe container and freeze for 1 or 2 hours before serving.



Pound Cake

Hi Guys, another Pinterest find that you are just going to love.  I love pound cake but the ones in the stores now are just too sweet so I went looking for a pound cake recipe and found one.

This is from King Arthur Flour web site.  They have lots a good recipes that you can try.






1 cup (16 tablespoons) salted butter, at room temperature*

1 cup granulated sugar

4 large eggs, at room temperature

2 cups All-Purpose Flour (sifted)

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup milk

1 tablespoon brandy, sherry, rum, or the liqueur of your choice, optional

1 teaspoon vanilla extract, almond extract, or a combination; or flavor to taste with other flavors *If you use unsalted butter, increase the salt in the recipe to 1 teaspoon.



  • Preheat your oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a 9″ x 5″ loaf pan.
  • In a large bowl, beat the butter until very light.
  • Beat in the sugar gradually and then the eggs, one by one. Scrape the bottom and sides of the bowl, and beat until the mixture is very light and fluffy.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  • In another small bowl, whisk together the milk, alcohol of your choice, and extract.
  • Alternately add the wet and dry ingredients to the butter/sugar/egg mixture, starting and ending with the flour. Stir to combine after each addition.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pan, smoothing the top.
  • Bake the cake for 60 to 65 minutes, until it springs back when pressed lightly in on top, and a long toothpick or cake tester inserted into the center comes out clean. If the cake appears to be browning too quickly, tent it with foil for the final 15 minutes of baking.
  • Remove the cake from the oven, and loosen its edges. Wait 5 minutes, then carefully turn it out of the pan onto a rack to cool.
  • To dress the cake up a bit, sift a shower of confectioners’ sugar over the top just before serving.
  • Store, wrapped in plastic, for a day or two before serving. Wrap well and freeze for longer storage.
