Healthy Tilapia Recipes in the Pressure Cooker

Do you come home or are you home and you realize you forgot about dinner. You realize you indeed are incharge of making it. You are like me and you buy stuff when it is on sale. You know that the ultimate list of frugal tips says buy low and stock up. You even know what to stock up on and when. If you do not read our stock up list to help you out. I even have tips of how to organize your stockpile.  I find that know how to save on fruits and vegetables saves me as much money as knowing when to buy meats.  That brings me to my Healthy Tilapia Recipes in the Pressure Cooker XL.

I saw a sale where it was buy one bag and then get one free. They were two pound bags and they were frozen. I paid $12.00 for the two bags. I knew I could get three meals out of the $12.00.

The items in this recipe are stables in my home. I always have garlic, lemon juice, and salt and pepper. The rest of the ingredients are optional. The tilapia fish is a mild fish so it will take on the flavor of what you add to it.

I made this recipe using foil but I could have just put the fish on the steamer basket if I wasn’t cooking the entire two pound bag. I usually do not cook that much but I made dinner for that night and then I want the rest of the fish for taco’s the next day for lunch.

Do you need a simple but tasty recipe for dinner that will only take you few minutes to make? Then save this healthy tilapia pressure cooker recipe!

Gluten Free Dairy Free Cookies You Want to Taste

Crispy, crunchy, flavors that are punchy. Cookies that crumble. Cookie that you want to eat. Cookies that you can have delivered. Nana’s Cookies were the answer to our dreams. You see there was a moment when we thought our life would be without dessert.

Life without dessert resembles a dog in the window as you leave. Life without dessert is like a book without an ending. It is a party without music.

Let me share what life was like before Nana’s cookies. Me in the kitchen attempting to bake. It was expensive because the ingredients weren’t ones we had on hand. I also couldn’t figure out the proper balance, and If you ask my kids, they will say I made a lot of door stops.
