Cottage Cheese Muffins

I love these cottage cheese muffins. The recipe is from over 40 years ago! Our family has been making them forever! I think the original recipe was given to my mom by a friend of hers. Sometimes I would play  majong with my mom’s group & this friend of hers would make the cheese muffins to eat at the game. I always looked forward to them & never hesitated to play there.  I think of her fondly whenever I make them.

Fish Tacos at Home

I love fish tacos!  They  are so easy & quick to make at home & any fish can be used which makes this dish so versatile! You can even use a frozen breaded fish fillet if you want to! I have been known to do that when I can’t find any fresh fish that I want to have!

This recipe makes 6 fish tacos  but it is very easy to adapt to any number of tacos that you want to make!

Here is the recipe!

Fish Tacos 

Ingredients 

1 cup Flour

1/2 cup Cornflake crumbs

1 tbsp Chili powder

Salt & pepper to taste

6 fish fillets ***you can use any fish you like

Oil

1/4 of a head of lettuce, thinly sliced

1 tomato chopped

1 avocado , mashed

Salsa

1 lime, cut into wedges

Fresh corn tortillas

Sauce:

1/4 cup chili sauce

1/2 cup mayo

Method

1. Mix the flour, Cornflake crumbs & chili powder together in a flat bowl or pie plate  wide enough so you can coat the fish in it

2 Heat some oil in a frying pan, if non-stick you don’t need much oil, if it is  a stainless steel frying pan you will need more oil. You need enough so that the fish cooks nicely

3. Coat the fish with the flour/crumb mixture. Cook in the frying pan until one side is brown then gently turn the fish over. It will most likely fall apart, but this is ok since it is going to used in a taco.. continue cooking all the filets until completely cooked through. This does not take long since they are so thin.

4. Have all of the toppings, the lettuce, tomatoe, avacado, salsa,  in serving dishes so that when you are ready to put your tacos together everything is right there

5. In a small bowl, mix the chilli sauce & the mayo togehter

6. Wipe out the frying pan or using a clean one, warm the tortillas up according to the instructions on the pkg. The ones I used just called for them to be warmed on each side for a few seconds in a dry pan until soft

Now put it all together!

Lay the tortilla on a plate. This is the order that I layered the ingredients

*tortilla

*spread some avacado on it

* lettuce

*tomato

*sauce

* fish

*salsa

*more sauce

*put some fresh lime juice on top

Have some serviettes ready!!! This is drippy!!

Pretzel Caramel Bark

So the big question was yesterday….if a recipe does not work for me should I blog about it? My son, Seth, said yes, So here it is. This is the original blog I wrote about the recipe before I failed at it TWICE!!! If you try it, please let me know it it works so I can figure out what I did & retry it. It seems so simple.

I found this recipe on my phone! I had taken a picture of the recipe from somewhere! Must have been on Facebook maybe. Looks like the recipe is from insidebrucrewife.com. I changed a couple of things from the original recipe..
