"Two fer Tuesday"


 Meaning I've tried two new recipes this week and I'm two for two!

The family liked this parmesan crusted tilapia.


And they really loved this super moist oven baked bar-b-q chicken.


Looking for something new for fish or chicken?
I recommend both of these recipes!

Exhilarate the spirit, and restore
The tone of languid nature."
