Tilapia Two Ways/Easy Peasy All-in-One-Homeschool Website of the Week/Brisk Product Review

Welcome to October and the start of the new look of the blog.  I hope you enjoy it and will share it with your friends and family.

Today's recipes will include Tilapia and it will be cooked 2 different ways.  In one recipe it will be broiled and in the other it will be grilled. The recipes are polar opposites of each other and both of them are delicious.

Tilapia is a great fish to eat for those that don't care for fish.  I don't like the strong fishy taste that most fish has but Tilapia doesn't have this so I recommend it to anyone that doesn't like like fish.

Broiled Parmesan Tilapia

1/2 C Parmesan Cheese
2 TBS Butter, Softened
3 TBS Mayonnaise
1/4 TSP Dried Basil
1/4 TSP Black Pepper, Ground
1/8 TSP Paprika
Pinch Onion Powder
2 LBS Tilapia


1.  Preheat oven's broiler.  Grease broiler pan or line w/aluminum foil.
2.  In a small bowl mix all ingredients together and set aside.
3.  Place the fillets in a single layer on the pan.  Broil a few inches from heat for 2-3 minutes then flip and broil for a couple more minutes.  Remove from oven, cover w/ parmesan mix.  Broil for 2 more minutes or until the cheese is browned & the fish easily flakes w/a fork.  Pay careful attention to not overcook the fish.

Brisk Product Review

Brisk Strawberry Melon is a non-carbonated drink that is caffeine free and sweetened with high fructose corn syrup.  This drink has a unique, distinct flavor that will wake up your taste buds.  It comes in 1 Liter bottles and has 4 servings.  Each serving is 70 calories. There's 0 fat, 0 protein, 55 mg sodium, 19 g total carbs, and sugars are 19g.

I'm currently also trying to raise funds to get the base for my father's headstone. I've attached the link to the fundraiser or you can contact me and I can give you the cemetery info and donations can be made directly to it!  His headstone itself was free thru the VA but I have to pay for the base and being disabled I just don't have the extra $$ laying around.  With that being said...I encourage everyone to donate to the American Cancer Society so we can hopefully soon find a cure for cancer.

Thank you for reading my blog today and I hope you all have a blessed day.
