Posted on 13th of September, 2012 by Lévana

IMG_1725

I always wonder if tilapia might suffer from underrating and mild neglect in the States. Economical, versatile and flavorful, there’s nothing I don’t do with it! This is one of the few recipes I fry, and it is a real treat. For a crust, I find cornmeal gives matzah meal...

Me and my scrunchies: This is the new word I learned. I made one for each kid and each counselor, and gave them out on end of camp party night. Don’t I look like Mr T here? Before summer rolled in, I asked my granddaughter Musia what her summer plans...
