DIY Apothecary Jars

Over at Living With Lindsay, she just had her 2nd annual $5 craft challenge. Make a craft for $5 or less. There are tons more you can look at, but this was what I came up with: From the Dollar Tree I got a candle stick holder, and a candle holder, and with a little E-6000 glue already on hand made these Apothecary Jars. Great for decorating any time of the year! They were $2 each, but I was having fun and got a little carried away! Fast, Easy, and Cheap. Hope you have a wonderful Easter.

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

This is one of our family favorites! It is so yummy and so fast! We like Tilapia because it's not as "fishy" of a taste. Hope you enjoy!

"Flavorful recipe for this farm raised fish that is easy and done in minutes! The fish is broiled with a creamy cheese coating for an impressive flavor and texture."
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup butter, softened
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon onion powder
1/8 teaspoon celery salt
2 pounds tilapia fillets
1. Preheat your oven's broiler. Grease a broiling pan or line pan with aluminum foil.
2. In a small bowl, mix together the Parmesan cheese, butter, mayonnaise and lemon juice. Season with dried basil, pepper, onion powder and celery salt. Mix well and set aside.
3. Arrange fillets in a single layer on the prepared pan. Broil a few inches from the heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Flip the fillets over and broil for a couple more minutes. Remove the fillets from the oven and cover them with the Parmesan cheese mixture on the top side. Broil for 2 more minutes or until the topping is browned and fish flakes easily with a fork. Be careful not to over cook the fish.
