Summer Goodness in December

December 22, 2012 at 11:30 pm Leave a comment

My baby boy had six wisdom teeth removed on Wednesday. He’s graduated from strictly ice-cream and mashed potatoes to soft fish. So off to the store to see what the fish monger had fresh. Tilapia on sale; $5.99/lb never frozen.

I swung by produce picked up a mango, two limes, three Serrano peppers, and a bunch of cilantro. At home, I mixed all the diced fresh produce with the squeezed lime juice and a can of Kroger pineapple tidbits with half the juice in the can.

For the tilapia a simple seasoning of garlic powder, Cajun seasoning, and a premixed seasoning by Urban Accents called Fisherman’s Wharf which contains salt, black pepper, parsley, garlic, white onion, lemon peel, green peppercorns, and green onion. Threw the fillets on a sprayed broiling pan and broiled on high (top shelf) until nicely browned and tender.

The tender white fish is served topped with the mango pineapple salsa. Of course since baby boy needs soft sides, I made homemade Yukon gold mashed potatoes with the skins on. Boiled in onion, drained and whipped on high speed with a stick of butter and sautéed minced garlic. He loaded his potatoes with sour cream and finely shredded cheese. Dinner was a hit.

Who says you can’t have summer freshness when it’s cold out?

I'm Natalie and so glad you stopped in.

January 29, 2008 changed my life forever. Before that day I weighed a whopping 292 lbs. Today I'm at a very slender 145 lbs. (in a size 6 jean!). The gastric bypass I received that day gave me a new lease on life. With that new lease came a commitment to a new eating lifestyle; moderation and plenty of protein. One of the neat side effects is my very low tolerance for sugar.

I've always loved food and knew I would be challenged to find satisfaction without the sugar. Over the past three years I've created some masterpieces of both savory and sugar free foods. Guests to our home are always asking for my recipes.

On this blog I plan to share many recipes I've found and in many cases modified. Some are high-jacked others are creations or family recipes. I will do my level best to give credit to the originators of any high-jacked recipes.

All recipes are sugar free. None are fat free! I have a saying, "If you can't have sugar, bring on the butter!"

I will also share awesome restaurant discoveries as I find them. Many times I attempt to recreate them at home.

So feel free to high-jack recipes from my blog. Recreate the magic in your home, and enjoy the food with family and friends. Cherish the moments with them because tomorrow is not promised.
