These are recipes for simple, easy, homemade dishes. I make no promises about portion size or fat content, etc., but they are dishes that I have prepared and liked. I don't post pictures because I don't have fabulous lighting, nor a great camera. I can promise that I haven't just made things up without trying the recipe and this is all stuff other people have tried and no one spit anything out in disgust. Not yet, anyway! I don't take cool supporting photos of the steps along the way (but wait, are you telling me you are going to cook those nuts in the microwave in that METAL bowl?) but these are real recipes that a regular cook/baker should be able to figure out. I love the work of Deb at Smitten Kitchen - she provides the whole package!!! Good food, witty comments and lovely photos. If you want to see a REAL food blog, check her out.

A Fish-Taco-At-Home Brainstorm

I love fish tacos, especially the Baja style from Chicks'n'Salsa.  Which are not too cheap and nowhere near home.  I've been noodling around with how to replicate that at home, but a little more easily.  I don't want to bread and then deep fry fish, just for starters. I tried the Gorton's way, but that was... icky.

Pan-fry the fish, marinated and no breading, then throw a few Durkee onions on the taco (with chipotle mayo, shredded cabbage and cucumber) to replicate the breading crunch, flavor, saltiness and unctuousness!  You'll never know if it's bad because I'll delete this post right after I try it for lunch today.
