Mahi Mahi with Cilantro and Lime Recipe

Hubby and I really enjoy fish so I have been looking for and creating different recipes for us to enjoy for dinners. While I would love to have fresh Mahi Mahi all the time, it is kind of pricey here in Missouri (Whole Foods does carry it and it is fantastic). Target carries a line, Simply Balanced, of frozen fish fillets and I buy the white swai often but I … Continue Reading →

Hubby’s Fried Food

Hubby’s Fried Food

When I travel I try to encourage Hubby and T to cook dinner at home while I’m away. I used to buy food and have a menu planned for them, but they did not really go along with that program. Now I just encourage them to just make their own menu plan and go shopping. Luckily T is a great grocery shopper after going with me to the store for … Continue Reading →
