My daughter knows how much I love red cardinals so she bought me a little ornament for a Mother's Day gift.

I saw this recipe on the ABC television show, 'The Chew' a few weeks ago and decided to try it for dinner last night. It was so good. I will be adding this recipe to my collection of favorites. Click here for Daphne Oz's recipe for the Fish Tacos with Creamy Chipotle Cabbage Slaw but I used what I had on hand and it was still good.
Fish Tacos Ingredients
1/3 cup of All-Purpose Flour
1 tsp Chipotle Powder
Salt and Pepper
1 pound of Tilapia Fish
I combined the flour, chipotle powder, and salt and pepper and mixed it all until blended
I added one fillet at a time and lightly coated it with the flour mixture
I added them to a lightly greased pan. I cooked each fillet 4 to 6 minutes until they were lightly browned
Creamy Chipotle Cabbage Slaw
4 cups of shredded cabbage
2 medium carrots, shredded
1 small red onion, sliced
1/2 cup of mayonnaise
1/2 cup of Greek yogurt
1/4 cup lime juice
2 Tablespoons of Honey
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp chipotle powder
1 package of flour tortilla shells
I combined all the above ingredients and stirred until mixed well.
And it tasted so good.
I quickly fried my flour tortilla shells in a small amount of oil for one minute on each side.
I added one fillet to a tortilla shell and then slathered it with the cabbage slaw and it was creamy.
It was folded over and quickly disappeared. The slaw gave the fillet a crunchy and creamy taste.
Baked Pork Chops
5 Medium Russet Potatoes
1 Large Vidalia Onion
1 Packet of Instant Onion Soup Mix
5-6 Boneless Pork Loin Chops
1/2 tsp Garlic Salt
Salt and Pepper
Peel the potatoes and onion and slice thinly
Add the dry onion soup mix to 2 cups of boiling water and stir
Pour the soup mix into the large casserole dish. Season the pork chop with the
salt, pepper and garlic salt and add to the soup mixture
Add the sliced onions and potatoes to the tops of the pork chops. Season with more pepper.
Cover the dish with aluminum foil and bake 35 to 45 minutes in a 350 degree oven.
When I went to grab my camera for a finished picture, my husband and son had already attacked it.
The pork chops were very moist and tender and the onion soup gave it a wonderful flavor.

We fixed fish sandwiches last night but did not have any tartar sauce on hand. I did an online search for homemade tartar sauce and came across the Top Secret Recipes site for their Red Lobster Tartar Sauce Recipe. It only required five ingredients:
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1- 1/2 T minced onion
1 T sweet relish
1-1/2 tsp shreddred carrot
1-1/2 tsp sugar
I minced the red onion, shredded the carrot and combined all the ingredients together. The color of the sauce is a pale orange, but that is due to the carrot.
We added the tartar sauce to the fish sandwiches and they tasted so good. I still had a lot left over and put it in the refrigerator. Until the next seafood meal.....:)

I decided to make a small patch of crab cakes last night for dinner.
8-ounce lump crab meat
3/4 cup of Mayonnaise
3 Tbsp breadcrumbs
2 tsp Old Bay Seafood Seasoning
Salt and Pepper
I combined all of the ingredients into a bowl and made five patties.
I fried them in a pan with oil for 4-6 minutes.
Here they are before they disappeared two minutes later and yes, they were good.
