I am a newlywed on a budget, just trying to make healthy and inexpensive meals for my husband and I to enjoy. He eats a lot, so cost is a big factor. Though I work 3 jobs, I manage to find time 6 nights a week to cook a full dinner for us both. I am constantly looking for new recipes that are moderately healthy, taste great, and won't break the bank.

On the side, I also own a brownie business called Gersheybars. My passion and love for cooking started when I was just a small child, baking with my mom and grandmother. The brownie recipe has been passed down through 5 generations and I am thrilled to finally have an outlet to share them with everybody else. Friends and family have helped spread the word and made my business as successful as it is today.

Broiled tilapia w/Summer Grape Tomatoes

No pictures of my own this time - life with a toddler is fairly hectic, so stopping to snap a picture before putting dinner on the table, doesn't really happen these days.  But this recipe is too good not to share.  It's healthy, simple, quick, and delicious!  What more could you ask for?  This will be a great way to use tomatoes and basil from our garden this summer.  And the sauce would be great on pasta or chicken as well.

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 6 cloves garlic, smashed
  • 1 lb grape tomatoes, cut in half
  • salt and fresh pepper
  • 1/4 cup fresh chopped basil
  • olive oil spray
  • 4 pieces (7 oz each) flounder (or tilapia or sole)


  1. In a large skillet heat oil on high heat. Add garlic and cook until golden. 
  2. Add tomatoes, salt and fresh pepper and reduce heat to low. 
  3. Simmer for about 15 minutes, add fresh basil and cook another 5 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, while sauce is simmering, season fish with salt and pepper and lightly spray with oil. Broil or grill fish on medium heat until cooked through (I broiled on low for about 6-7min). When fish is cooked top with tomato sauce.
