Fish Tacos

My friend Michelle told me about this recipe. I was hesitant because I am not a huge fish fan. I really have to be in the mood. But, these were so good and even the kids liked them.

1 bag of Parmesan encrusted Tilapia (I found this in the freezer section at Walmart)
1 pkg tortillas
1 head of cabbage (I actually didn't use the whole head)
1/4 cup plain yogurt
1/4 cup mayo

Bake the Fish according to pkg directions.

I just cut up the pieces and placed on the tortilla.

Mix the yogurt and mayo together and drizzle over each tortilla.

Add some chopped cabbage and salsa.

Wrap up and Enjoy!

Smores Bars

I found this recipe here. They turned out really good.

1/2 cup butter, soft
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/3 cups all purpose flour
3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 king-sized Hershey's milk chocolate bars
1 small jar marshmallow cream

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease an 8-inch square baking pan.

2. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light. Beat in egg and vanilla. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking powder and salt. Add to butter mixture and mix at a low speed until combined.

3. Divide dough in half and press half of dough into an even layer on the bottom of the prepared pan. Place chocolate bars over dough. Spread chocolate with marshmallow creme or fluff. Place remaining dough in a single layer on top of the fluff. This is tricky, I made balls as if I was making cookies and flattened with a rolling pin then arranged them on top.

4. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until lightly browned. Cool completely before cutting into bars.

Fancy Nancy's Extra Fancy Lemondade

I think that Lindsay has decided that she wants a Fancy Nancy Birthday Party this year. We have been reading lots of Fancy Nancy lately. We found this and I wanted to keep track of it so we could make it for her party. It was in one of her Fancy Nancy books.

A can of pink lemonade and water
A little cranberry juice to make it hot pink
Raspberries (two per cup of lemonade)
A teacup to drink it in
Cookies to eat with it
