Several times a year I defrost a whole turkey, separate the meat from the bones and make at least 5 meals depending how large the bird weighs.
I can definitely feed my family of 5 on a nice large Turkey Breast and have everyone satisfied when they leave the table.
I am a huge fan of whitefish. The milder the flavor, the more I LOVE it! And this is probably because I am not a lover of a strong fishy flavor — like you get from Tilapia or Salmon. Normally I don’t eat a lot of raw fish even in sushi because my husband prefers cooked sushi rolls. Despite his liking, I bought salmon from Costco to make sushi rolls and it was fantastic raw! It melted in your mouth.. and literally didn’t even have much of a fish flavor at all! Nevertheless, you cook Salmon, I won’t like it at all — the flavor turns me off. YUCK!
Anyhow, like I said, I love whitefish be it swai, cod, halibut, haddock, swordfish, etc… it is all yummy!!
Let me get back on track — A couple of months ago I was experimenting with making flavored butter to place on my fish. And that night I made a wonderful garlic butter with nice minced garlic and dried parsley! It was wonderful. In fact, I think I didn’t make enough because my husband was asking for more — and I had just made enough for 5 meals!!
I love poached eggs. I think they are my all time favorite way of cooking eggs. And the there is Eggs Benedict which is my favorite way of eating poached eggs.
A friend of mine posted a cooking video of Justin Chappele from Food & Wine explaining how to make poached eggs in the oven. I loved the video and knew I needed to give it a try.
This recipe allows me to “poach” 12 eggs at once using a muffin pan and my oven preheated to 350º F. Then in 10-15 minutes depending on how runny you prefer your egg you will have wonderfully perfect “poached” eggs.
And by using a muffin tin, it will not only save you time — it is an easy clean up as well especially if you have a family of five like me or if you are having a brunch party at your home.
My kids love fish. And even though my youngest isn’t feeling all that well he still asked me to make fish for dinner last night. If you are looking for a simple fish dinner, try this easy recipe for baked fish fillets. You can use any firm white fish for this dish and it will still come out really tasty.
I had Gluten Free Honey Nut Chex in the cupboard and not regular Rice or Corn Chex so my topping was a tad sweeter than normal but my husband and kids loved the flavor and said it was really good. And I measure everyones tastes by what is left on their plates. And lets just say plates were practically licked clean.
