Salmon Sliders

When I was growing up, we consumed a lot of fried foods; fried chicken, fried fish, fried pork chops, fried okra, fried tomatoes, French fried potatoes, etc., etc.  Need I say more?  Now that we are more aware of our bodies and the role that good nutrition plays, more and more we are looking for healthier choices in preparing and selecting our foods.  Which brings me to the subject matter; my mother always fried her salmon patties.  As I recall the oil reached at least the half way mark of the patties; and as always they were delicious.  For years now, I still struggle with eliminating fried foods from my diet and in preparing meals for my family.
This recipe may be used for March Madness and it’s also a healthier way to prepare salmon.I prepared this recipe with the intention of eliminating almost all of the cooking oil.

Curried Chicken

Last month I had to take a family member to the doctor’s office.  While sitting in the waiting room, I did as usual, reached for the magazines relating to food or recipes.  I came across a Better Homes and Garden magazine dated December 2011.  My attention was drawn to a recipe for Curried Chicken Stew.  Immediately, I thought about the fact that I had a can of coconut milk that I had purchased to prepare Indian Fried Rice, a recipe that one of my sisters had shared with me.  The chicken stew looked so scrumptious, that I decided to try it at home.  It was very different from the flavors that I generally taste in my chicken dishes but still very appealing.

Well, here’s my twist:

Tuna Casserole

Some years ago, I recall having tuna casserole for dinner at least twice a month.  My family and I always enjoyed it.  Now it’s hard for me to recall the last time that I prepared this little tasty dish.  I’ve never been fun of using cream of mushroom soup so this recipe was perfect for me.  I really would like for you to share your tuna casserole dish with us.  I know that there are many variations out there.  By the way, is it something that you prepare on a regular basis, or every now and then?

Mini Banana Pudding

If you have a passion for banana pudding but don’t want to over indulge, here’s a cute and clever idea.  Serve your banana pudding in  ramekins. This recipe is adapted from Nabisco Nilla Wafers
Your sweetheart and family will appreciate the extra time you spent when you make them a Banana Pudding with a homemade custard.  They will definitely taste the difference.

Pecan-Crusted Fish

This fish is very light and not too spicy. Tilapia is a fish that I prepare often; and one that my family enjoys. The rice that I served with  it is also on this site:
