Today I was babysitting Addisyn, my little Granddaughter. We decided that we needed to bake something sweet. I happened to have four ripe bananas waiting to be used, and so we decided on Banana Bread with big chunks of walnuts for Grandpa. That would suit him just fine, but not Addi and I. We needed […]


Have you ever tried Tilapia? Well, tonight was a first for us. For some reason I have looked at it, picked it up, but always put it back. Not anymore! It is delicious. I don’t care for fish that tastes like FISH. This white fish is flaky with a very nice texture, and is not […]

    What do you do with the sugar and onion powder in the sauce? It doesn’t say… Or at least I can’t find it.ReplyCancel

      Hi Stephanie,
      I just add it to the sauce for flavoring….it’s optional,
      but makes a difference.

    Hello there!! I found you through Pinterest and tried this recipe tonight… LOVED it. So did my husband. Thank you!! Delish. Have to admit this is the first time I have ever used Panko crumbs, and now I am hooked. Really liked the lemon cream sauce too, wondering how else you’d use it? Anyway, have an awesome weekend, thanks for the recipes!!ReplyCancel

    I thought this was a little weird. I think it is probably great if your family is not big on fish and you are trying to get them to eat it. But, it tasted like chicken fried chicken to me, but with fish. I would not call it “lemon cream sauce”. I would call it gravy. In fact, I think that is how I will make it from now on… as chicken fried chicken 😉 The gravy was great!ReplyCancel

    I made this last night and it was SO good!!! We love Tilapia and loved this recipe. Based on the previous comment, I tasted the Lemon Cream Sauce before serving and agreed that it needed more lemon flavor. I zested the lemon and added it to sauce and it was a perfect solution! Will be keeping this recipe in the frequent rotation! Thanks for sharing! 🙂ReplyCancel

    I made the fish and cream sauce from this recipe (and some wedge cut baked fries on the side) and can I just say that they were amazing!! I will definitely be including this combo in with my repitoire of other recipes that circulate our table. Thank you!ReplyCancel

    I’m not a big fan of fish, but this lemon sauce was so great I actually enjoyed eating the fish! I liked it so much I wrote about it here. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe.

    ps we had leftover lemon cream sauce and I used it as a dip for raw carrots, but maybe that is weird!ReplyCancel

Yahoo…..I found my way back into the kitchen this morning! I’ve been wanting to try a new recipe for a while now. This one! Creme Brulee is probably my favorite dessert. I’m usually too full after a meal ,to order it in a restaurant. I need to start with the dessert first, then I will […]


My daughter Brandi, shared a new breadstick recipe with me the other day. She got the recipe from the friend of a friend. Brandi even took a picture for me, so that I could see how light and fluffy they are. The ingredient that makes these breadsticks unique, is Cottage cheese. Who knew! In fact, […]


Has anyone missed me? I’ve been enjoying a lot of sweetness lately. A sweet little granddaughter! Just look at these perfect little piggies, and I bet you can guess the rest of this story! For the past week, I’ve been holding, rocking, feeding, changing and kissing this perfect little baby girl named “Oakleigh Noel.” When […]


Yesterday, a good friend brought over a large container of big and beautiful Blueberries. They were a “thank you” gift for my husband, for helping them re-bark their gardens. I think they know him too well! He is what you call – a FRUITAHOLIC! Yes, he eats very healthy indeed.  I found a way to […]


 This morning, I wanted to bake something to take to a sweet little old neighbor, that I don’t get to see very often. She’s one of those special people, who radiate happiness, and is always doing for others. Her enthusiasm for life is infectious. To be honest, I usually shy away from new recipes, if […]


  • Cheryk Owen - 08/07/2012 - 7:21 pm

    These sound absolutely amazing, I am getting off my butt at 9:19pm to make them now. They will be delicious with my coffee in the morning, I’ll make them a little bigger so I only have one!!ReplyCancel

Is it dinner or breakfast? You choose. Tonight, this was our dinner, and it was yummy. My husband leaves the house by five or six o’clock in the early morning, and nobody is hungry at that time of day! Well….at least that’s my excuse for not making breakfast, and I’m sticking to it! I really […]

    Breakfast OR dinner, I can see myself whipping up this recipe for a quick tasty feed. Thanks for the cooking inspiration!ReplyCancel

    I just made this for breakfast and it is sooo good. buttery, cheesy, crunchy all my favs for breakfastReplyCancel

Nothing finishes off a meal, like a tender shortbread Lemon Bar. I’ve been craving these for a while now, and decided today was the day to dive in and make them. A while ago, on GMA the Hill Country Chef shared her recipe for these Lemon Bars. It’s the chefs favorite in her new cookbook, […]


These bread sticks are one of my guilty pleasures. I can resist many things, but bread sticks just aren’t one of them. I like to try to new recipes, and so tonight I did just that. I have several bread stick recipes that are really good, and I will add this one to the list! […]

For dinner tonight, I made one of my husbands favorites. I also like this dinner, but I don’t like rice, quite like he does. This stir-fry is fast, easy & delicious. The crispy fried bacon, really adds to the flavor of this dish. In fact, you can add just about any vegetable, and it would […]


  • Christine - 10/20/2011 - 10:33 am

    This looks really yummy. I want to make this tonight but I have a question … Is it 2/3 cup soy sauce or 2/3 of the bottle? I’m guessing cup but just want to make sure. I love this website…it’s my go to when I need a new recipe.ReplyCancel

    • Jonna - 10/20/2011 - 11:39 am

      Hi Christine,

      Yes…I’m sorry! That would be 2/3 cup.

Tonight for dessert, I made this delicious Cobbler. I’ve mentioned that my better half doesn’t care for anything that is too sweet. I prefer a Crisp, and he prefers this not so sweet Cobbler, with a biscuit type top. Don’t get me wrong, this dessert is certainly sweet, but not like your oatmeal and brown […]


How about some fudge? This morning I made this delicious, soft, creamy fudge. I usually only make this around Christmas time. One great lady in our ward, decided since the Mothers always get a special gift on Mothers Day, that the Fathers needed to feel special as well. Several of us are making sweet treat […]
