Sometimes Dinner is all about the “Luck of the Draw’- what’s in the fridge, what you feel like & how much effort you want to put in to it. Sometimes it’s a Hit! & others a Miss! I’ll never forget some of my mothers creative ‘Misses’ My siblings will be hard pressed not to laugh out loud when they remember the fiasco of the “Coke Salad”, Mom made a huge bowl of this concoction of Coke, cherries and I don’t remember what all, after the first obligatory taste no one wanted any more.

I wish I could say I’ve never had a ‘Miss’, but to be honest I had to ask my husband and sons to remind me of the worst dinners ever. I guess I’ve gotten proficient enough that there aren’t any standout failures they can remember at the moment. Maybe they’re just being nice to the cook.

Sometimes I will experiment imagine a flavour combination and try to duplicate it. Occasionally if I eat something exceptional in a restaurant I will try to decipher the combination of ingredients and flavours in order to try & recreate it later at home (usually with some success) My latest Delicious experiment using the ingredients on hand I’ll call-

Fredo Sole


12 filets of sole

1 roasted red pepper

1/3 pkg light cream cheese

½ tsp ground coriander seed

1, 1/2 tsp paprika

2 cloves of garlic smashed

1 tsp fresh thyme

salt & pepper

Soften cream cheese, blend spices and garlic in with pestle or spoon. Cut roasted pepper into pieces about an inch and a half by a quarter inch. Wash filets lay on paper towel. Line large low baking dish with parchment paper. Using a spoon put about 1-2 tsp cream cheese mix on wide end of filet add a couple of pieces of red pepper scattered on surface. Gently roll, place roll end down on baking dish, drizzle with a little olive oil & a sprinkling of paprika and pepper.

Bake at 350 degrees approx. 20 minutes or until fish flakes with a fork.
