Life is busy, especially with it being summer~ lots of yard work, working in the garden and greenhouse and of course, fishing! The weather has been perfect and the cod have finally arrived on the shores of Trinity Bay! Today for lunch, I made this amazing dish, Cod in Spicy Tomato Broth ~ did I say it was AMAZING!!!

Super simple, very healthy, gluten free and made with fresh tomatoes and herbs from your garden. I used cod but you could use any flaky white fish like haddock or tilapia. The broth has a bit of spice to it from the red pepper flakes and is so flavorful! I used cherry tomatoes but you could use whatever tomatoes you have on hand, just coarsely chop them.

Soooo Delicious! Soooo Healthy! Soooo Easy! Fresh cod poached in a broth made from fresh tomatoes and herbs! A “One Dish Dinner” that will become a Family Favorite!

INGREDIENTS:

2 TBSP olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
2 cups cherry tomatoes, sliced in half and then quartered
3 cups water
1 TBSP fresh oregano, finely chopped
1 TBSP fresh basil, julienned
1 tsp fresh thyme, finely chopped
salt to taste
4 – 6 pieces of fresh cod or other flaky white fish

PREPARATION:

Set a large frying pan, with a cover, over medium heat. Add oilive oil until it is heated then add garlic and red pepper flakes. Cook for about 10 seconds ~ careful you don’t burn the garlic. Add the tomatoes, water, and herbs and return to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 15 minutes. Remove lid and simmer for 10 more minutes to let broth reduce slightly. Taste broth and season with salt if needed. Place cod in broth and season cod with salt. Cover and cook on medium low until fish is flaky ~ 8 to 10 minutes. Put 1 – 2 pieces of cod in serving bowl and add tomato broth. Garnish with more basil if desired. Enjoy! I served mine with some warm crusty bread to sop up all that amazing broth!

NOTE: This does not reheat well so only make enough for one meal! You can make the broth ahead of time and keep it in the refrigerator for a day or two and then just reheat and add your cod to cook and simmer. Lunch will be ready in 10 minutes!

A quick and easy freezer dessert that you can whip up in a couple of minutes…only 4 ingredients!  No baking required!  Super simple and simply delicious!

Can you believe this is the last long weekend of summer? Pretty depressing but I must say, summer has been awesome!  Lots of visiting with family and friends, lots of days sitting on the patio with a cold beverage in hand enjoying the sun and the view reading a book, lots of time spend boating and fishing in Trinity Bay!  Life is good 🙂 and I really do love the Fall in Newfoundland.

As we embark on our Labor Day Long Weekend, here is a little dessert to throw in the freezer!  Super simple to put together with 4 ingredients, makes a 9 x 13 pan so it serves many, and it is darn tasty! Make it today and it will be ready for your big BBQ with family and friends.

If you can’t find Crispy Crunch bars, use Willow Crisps. If you can’t find Breaktime cookies, use a box of cheap chocolate chip cookies (they work best in this dessert)

“A 4 ingredient dessert that is easy to make, throw it in the freezer and your dessert is ready! “

Ingredients:

  • 2 pkgs of Breaktime chocolate chip cookies
  • 1 cup fresh milk
  • 1 large tub of Cool Whip
  • 3 Crispy Crunch bars or 1 box of Willow Crisps Bars

Preparation:

Put chocolate bars into a ziploc baggie and beat with a rolling pin or meat tenderizer to make small pieces.  Set aside.

Pour milk into a bowl. Dip chocolate chip cookies into milk for a couple of seconds and then lay cookies in the bottom of your 9 x 13 pan. Carefully layer half of the Cool Whip on top of the cookies.  Layer half the chocolate bar pieces over the Cool Whip.  Repeat layers ~ cookies, Cool Whip, chocolate bar pieces.  Cover dessert and put in the freezer. Serve frozen.  Enjoy 🙂

NOTES:  Remove your dessert from the freezer about 10 minutes to sit at room temperature…makes cutting into squares so much easier!
