“I am a stay at home mom with two children who inspire me to be a better cook. I love using fresh ingredients, organic when possible, and I like to experiment with different tastes and textures. I try to keep my recipes lower in fat but still tasting great.”
“My favorite hobbies are cooking, photography and blogging so I decided to combine them and create a recipe blog. It has been a wonderful way to organize my recipes and share them at the same time.”

“I bought some halibut recently and decided to bake it topped with a mixture of zucchini, tomato, dill, onion, and feta cheese. This recipe was really simple to make and tasted wonderful. I loved that this dish was hearty and filling yet healthy.”
“My husband and I really enjoyed this recipe while my son thought the fish was good but didn't like the topping and my daughter didn't like any of it. You win some, you lose some.”
Baked Halibut Topped with Zucchini, Tomato, Dill, and Feta
Serves 2 to 4
1 large zucchini, diced
1/4 small sweet yellow onion, diced
1 clove of garlic, minced (or 1 tsp organic garlic granules)
3-4 roma tomatoes, diced
4 Tbsp feta cheese
Preheat the oven to 450 F. Coat a glass baking dish with cooking spray.
Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion to the hot skillet and sauté for 2-3 minutes then add the zucchini, cook for an additional 2 minutes; add the minced garlic and sauté, stirring constantly for 45 seconds. Remove from heat and let cool.
Gently mix the tomato, 3 tablespoons of feta cheese, and fresh dill in a small bowl. Add the zucchini mixture and mix. Season with sea salt and freshly cracked lemon pepper, to taste.
Cut the halibut into three pieces then season with sea salt and freshly cracked lemon pepper on both sides. Place the halibut in the baking dish then spoon the tomato mixture over the top of each piece of fish. Sprinkle the last tablespoon of feta cheese equally over the fish.
Place in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes or until the fish flakes easily with a fork. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
