Breaded Baked Sole Fillets – Inspired by Gwenyth Paltrow

Dining Like a Star | Home Made Cooking

I was planning on making pasta for supper, honestly. But then I remembered the lonely mashed potato leftovers in the fridge, and leftovers or not I LOVE mashed potatoes. I can have them with an omelet, sour cream, cheese, chicken, veggies and just basically with anything. Whenever I want food that makes me feel comfort and warmth I turn to the mashed potatoes. But enough about the mashed potatoes, I needed something to go with it. We don’t tend to eat a lot of meat or chicken at home but I still needed something to go with the potatoes and then it hit me – fish! I only had sole fillets and although I love sole, the dishes I made in the past tasted good but looked kind of sad. I remembered watching a video on YouTube my husband sent me, showing Gwyneth Paltrow making one of her favorite recipes from her new cookbook “It’s All Good”. The book is all about egg, gluten, dairy (and so many more ingredients) free food, which is so much healthier, and in the video she was showing how to make baked fish nuggets. Remembering that video inspired me to make something similar but different myself. I always like to avoid frying when possible and tend to bake rather than fry, it’s so much more healthy this way and since I mostly serve to my kids I would naturally prefer it if they eat healthy. So what I did is take my sole fillets out of the freezer and without even thawing them, made supper. The fillets came out crunchy, full of flavor and were super easy to make, just the way I like it. So thanks Gwyneth for the inspiration.

Emily Deschanel Greek Style Lemon Roasted Potatoes

Dining Like a Star | Home Made Cooking

Every time we go to a Greek restaurant I enjoy their vegetables; especially the potatoes. They are lighter and so full of flavor; apparently they make it with lemon and that gives the potatoes such an amazing taste. So I decided I need to try and make the lemon roasted potatoes myself. I came up with a recipe and the potatoes turned out so good! But you know what the best part is? The next day, if you have leftovers, you can either heat it up and then it tastes even better or, better yet, heat it up, sprinkle with crumbled feta cheese and put back in the oven for another 3 minutes. I promise you – you will ask for more. You can also make the same recipe and leave the skin on the potatoes; in fact, you may be interested to know that there is a celebrity that likes this exact dish. If you ever watched the series “Bones” (IMDB info about “Bones”) , the beautiful lead actress – Emily Descanel (Here’s some info about Emily) apparently loves this dish, it is her favorite 🙂 anyway, “Bones” is definitely a show you need to watch, it is awesome! And these potatoes are definitely a dish you have to try, they are even more awesome 🙂
