rice and spinach casserole

We had a potluck at work and I needed something quick and simple to take as my contribution.  It needed to feed about 28 people at the most even though I knew not everyone would have some.  What’s better than a casserole for potlucks?  I just winged it so you can change out some of […]

lemongrass and fenugreek tilapia

This dish was very exciting for me because the flavors are not what I am accustomed to but I tried them anyway.  Start with some almost thawed out tilapia (not completely because we don’t want the marinade to cook the fish). Squeeze the juice of half a lime (or lemon) onto the fish… Here are […]
