Easy Dijon Tarragon Tilapia – 5 minute prep in morning, 20 minute bake at dinner

Tilapia is so quick and easy to make.  Especially, if you don’t even bother to thaw it.

For this meal, I prepped it early in the day and put the pan in the fridge.  It only took a few minutes to put together.  And at dinner time, all I had to do was turn on the oven and put the pan in to bake.

You could use this prep-fridge-bake system for all kinds of different seasonings, but this time I chose an easy, buttery lemon juice sauce with Dijon mustard, garlic and tarragon.

Croque Monsieur – “Fancy” Toasted Ham and Cheese

I found this recipe in a Rachel Ray cookbook.  She talks about eating these sandwiches in Paris.  That sounds nice.  I just ate mine in the kitchen.

I adapted her recipe a little bit.  She says to use Gruyere cheese, but I couldn’t find any so I used Swiss.  My kids called these “inside out sandwiches”, because the cheese is on the outside of the bread.  When you grill them, it toasts to a flavorful crust. [Read more…]
