Must Try Recipes!

Happy Tuesday!  I hope you’re week is off to a good start!  I’m still recuperating from a very busy weekend.  My daughter and I joined my sister and some friends for the “Color Run” at Tempe Town Lake on Saturday, and let me just say, while it was super fun, it was also super messy!  I’m still trying to get all of the “color” out of my running shoes (after several trips through the washer)…

Throw in my usual weekend chores, two teens with busy social lives, an absent (traveling for work) Mister, and suffice to say, I had zero time for DIY or projects this weekend.  I’m beginning to doubt that I will ever get my master bedroom “refreshed” for the new year!  But I guess that just means I’m busy living… right?

I was excited to try out a couple of new recipes this weekend, with hopes of sharing at least one of them with you today, but sadly, neither one was very impressive (has that ever happened to you?)  So whats a girl to do when she has nothing else lined up for her blog post? Lucky for me my sister loves to cook and recently texted me with high accolades for these two recipes she found via Pinterest.  She knows her food and when she recommends something, I know its good.  So here you go:

Roasted Green Beans with Mushrooms, Balsamic and Parmesan

This next recipe was also a “must make”, according to my sis….
Almond Crusted Talapia
Photo and recipe from Pinch of Yum
Almond crusted talapia
Prep time:  
Cook time:  
Total time:  
Serves: 2-4
  • ½ cup salted almonds
  • ¼ cup breadcrumbs, plain or seasoned
  • 2-4 tilapia filets (I always have enough crumbs if I’m using 4 smaller filets)
  • ¼ cup Dijon mustard
  • 1-2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • parmesan cheese, fresh lemon, or sea salt for topping

Substitute Oil with Avocados from Mexico

  1. Place the almonds and breadcrumbs in a food processor and pulse until coarsely ground into a crumb-like mixture. Place the crumb mixture on a plate or in a shallow bowl.
  2. Heat oil and butter in a frying pan over medium-high heat.
  3. Spread each tilapia filet with 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard on both sides. Press the tilapia into the crumbs to get it coated on both sides. I usually do this several times to make sure the whole thing gets covered.
  4. Place the fish into the frying pan and cook for several minutes on each side, until the outside is browned and the fish is fully cooked. I usually just check the middle of the fish for doneness – pieces will flake off easily when it’s done.
  5. Serve with parmesan, sea salt, or lemon.

Please stop by A Pinch of Yum, and show some love, you will be so glad you did!  Tons of fabulous recipes and the photography is amazing!

If you make either one, I’d love to hear what you think!

Happy cooking!
