03/01/2011 Dessert tonight was an Apple-Raspberry Crisp. I have to say that it was not quick. It took me a while just to peel, core, and cut the apples. It was a simple recipe but a bit time consuming. The crisp also bakes for 50-55 minutes. I do not recommend tackling this unless you have some time on your hands. I will say, however, that it was amazing! The whole family loved it. This specific recipe only made a 9 x 9 pan. It was definitely not enough. I recommend doubling the recipe and using a 9 x 13 pan.
03/01/2011 Tonight I made Parmesan Tilapia and Mint Sugar Snap Peas for dinner. Very quick and very easy. I did find that I had to broil the fish longer than the amount of time listed in the recipe. My husband said everything was ok. He does not like peas so he passed judgement before eating them. He liked the fish but didn’t love it. I think that if I make it again I will add more cheese. My 6 year old loved the fish (which is very odd for him) but didn’t like the peas. I guess he is trying to take after his dad. My 1 year old sort of pushed the peas around on his tray. I am not sure if he ate any of them. I did not give him fish because of his age. I like both. I would have liked for the peas to be a bit more minty. Both items really only took a few minutes each. This is definitely a menu for a busy night. I spent 3 hours putting together and cooking, but most of that was the dessert (an item for another post).
