I have made all of these recipes myself. I always try to show the original source of the recipe, but am constantly editing them to suit our tastes (so technically they should all say "Adapted from..."). The portions are generally small since my family doesn't consume much food in one sitting.

When searching in the categories below, don't forget to click on "older posts" at the bottom right of the screen after scrolling through them to see more recipes in that category.

*I have recently added a $ label to show that I've calculated the price of the recipe. All prices include 3% food tax.*

Lemon and Garlic Baked Tilapia (

This was a huge winner with my entire family!

8 Tilapia filets (if frozen, thaw)
12 cloves garlic, crushed and diced large
5 Tbsp butter
8 Tbsp fresh lemon juice, divided
6 tsp Parsley (fresh or dried)
2 tsp Oregano (fresh or dried)
Salt and pepper to taste
Cooking spray

Preheat oven to 400°. Melt butter on a low flame in a small sauce pan. Add garlic and sauté on low for ~1 min. Add all but 2 Tbsp of the lemon juice, shut off flame, and remove from heat.

Lightly spray the bottom of two 9x13 baking dishes. Add 1 Tbsp of the lemon juice to each pan. Place the fish in the pans. Add seasonings. Pour the lemon butter mixture on the fish (dividing evenly between pans) and top with fresh parsley for garnish. Bake at 400° until cooked, ~15 min (or until semi-golden).
