    This is fabulous and using the bag -- almost no clean up! I used catfish fillets and canola oil for a delicious supper which we served with Lemon and Red onion roasted potatoes recipe#99115 and Caesar Coleslaw recipe#88584. This reminds me of the fish my mother used to make -- using flounder instead of the catfish--I think this will work for almost any fish with delicous results. Thanks for sharing this keeper which we will be having often!

My name is Karen. I love to cook. I collect cookbooks, my favorite being ones you can get from churches or schools that have peoples personal favorites in them. Whenever I visit out of state I try to find 1-2 of these kinds of cookbooks. My hobbies are painting, cross stitch, scrapbooking and spending time with my 3 children. Megan 21 years old, Jeremy 16 Years old, and Clayton 8 years old. People love my pizza Swirls. I love all foods. I love to try complicated recipes for fun and I make alot of my own breads. My kids love to help me cook I think its a great time to get to communicate with our kids especially when life can get so crazy with school and such, this is a great habit we have gotten into, cooking and chatting LOL. We now have a smoothie night where we make an assortment of smoothies as a dessert, and on occasion we have had smoothies for dinner but that is a rare occasion. Its kids choice and they have fun on recipezaar because I have dedicated a cookbook just to smoothies. My daughter is getting creative in her smoothie endeavors and coming up with some incredible ideas! In Jan 09 I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer and have just began the treatments to get myself back up to speed. *UPDATE* November 2009 I have finished my radiation and chemotherapy and am on the mend. Chemo caused nerve damage in my leg so I am unable to walk without a cane and a brace but otherwise doing great!!!!!!!! <li><a href="http://www.recipezaar.com/bb/viewforum.zsp?f=2">Cooking Q & A Forum Host</a></li> <li><a href="http://www.recipezaar.com/bb/viewforum.zsp?f=27">Desserts Forum Host</a></li> In september of 2009, The Pink ribbon tour came through Wickenburg.
