Lemon dill tilapia

There goes my first fish recipe 🙂 I like fish in general but here are some kinds I’m not the biggest fan of. Which is kind of funny because I’m from a town surrendered by the lakes where you can get the most delicious smoke trout there is. No matter how many times my mom…

Vegetables are good for you. Yeah, we all know that and we all heard it a billion times. 5 portions of vegetables a day. I love vegetables but sometimes they seem so boring. Me and my husband have a way to fix all the boring vegetables- olive oil and garlic. It’s no different with garlic…
