  1. I think I ground the pine nuts a little too long in the food processor. They started to stick together. I did have to add a little more butter to the pan as it was cooking, as it was starting to dry out. I wasn't too sure at first, but I added an extra sprinkling of garlic salt and dill. It really seemed to be just what it needed.
  2. Very easy and tasty way to do tilapia. We do not care for dill, so I subbed fresh tarragon from the garden. Will be making this again, for sure. Made for Fall 2012 PAC game.
  3. This was great. My family asked for seconds. I'll be making this again!
  4. Very good! Thanks:-)
  5. Fantastic!! This is an easy fish recipe with a WOW factor. The pinenut flavor was delightful. There was also a slight hint of the lemon and honey coming through. I ground my pine nuts in a food processor. Just be sure to not grind them for too long or you'll wind up with a paste. This is a quality recipe that my whole family loved! ~Made for Sping '09 Pick A Chef~


<p><img src= alt=width=300 height=150 />I live in Boise, Idaho (home of the famous Idaho potatoes and Boise State University whose football team plays on the blue smurf turf). My husband and I are retired and travel quite a lot.&nbsp;&nbsp; We have a place in Boise, Idaho and now a part-time home in Carlsbad, California.&nbsp; It's nice to be in California where they have so much more fresh food...vegetables and fish!&nbsp;&nbsp;They have so many farmer markets that I really have to watch myself, but cooking is so much fun and they have such a variety of things to use.</p> <p>I have two daughters and one has three angels (the twins who are now 4) and my man who is 2 and just as big as the twins.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;I do miss them when we are gone...they grow so fast.<br /><br />I love to collect and read cookbooks -- way to much from my husbands point of view. I love to watch Rachael Ray, Paula Deen, Barefoot Contessa and Everyday Italian. I have used this site for several months and have loved the recipes and info that comes with them...had to join! <a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><br /><br /><br />The only peeve that I really have is going on this site and reading reviews on recipes where the person has totally changed the recipe and didn't like the results so therefore giving low ratings.&nbsp;<br /><br /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /> <br /><br /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /> <object width=400 height=300 data= type=application/x-shockwave-flash> <param name=data value= /> <param name=src value= /> <param name=wmode value=transparent /> </object> img</a><a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a><a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /><a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /> <br /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= border=0 alt=/ /><img border=0 alt=Photobucket /><img src= border=0 alt=New /></a></p>
