A couple of months ago, I found this recipe on Dr. Oz's website (and also posted it on Becoming The You). I am always looking for fish recipes to try, so I decided to try this one. Mom and I are huge on spicy food and fish, so I sent this one to her so that we could try it while I was home on break during college. Instead of apple juice, we used cranberry juice, but left all of the other ingredients the same.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
One or Two Frozen Tilapia Filets
Ground Cayenne Pepper
Ground Black Pepper
Thaw the filets in warm water and strain. Wash spinach and drain (or spin it out.) Warm a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add olive oil and fish. Lightly dust the fish with garlic powder, paprika, cayenne pepper, and black pepper. Add a few dashes of the hot sauce to both fish and pan.
When the fish is cooked on one side (half way through the filet), flip it, add sliced almonds, and dust very lightly with powdered/ground spices again. Add enough apple juice to the pan (not fish) to get it simmering and reduce.
When fish is cooked though (flakey with fork), add it to a bed of fresh spinach and pour sauce over fish.

I did not like the first book that I read by Jane Green, so when my mom handed me Beach House, I was a little bit skeptical about reading it. I actually put it off for a while before I decided to give the author another chance.

Earlier this year, I finally got up the balls to dye my own hair, with dye out of a box. I wanted a change, and since I can't pierce anything else and am not planning on getting a visible tattoo. I figured that dying my hair was cheaper and if I screwed up, it was easily fixable. I asked some of my friends who had experience dying hair with the dye out of a box and my friend Kirstie suggested that I use Clairol's Nice n Easy.
