Orange Roughy w/Roasted Grape Tomatoes

Orange roughy was mingling with grape tomatoes, black olives and lemon slices for our dinner last evening.

This is a recipe of few ingredients, that’s big on flavor.  Adding the robust zesty taste is Roubsto Italian Dressing by Wishbone.  If you’ve never used it, you’ll be amazed at how zesty delicious it is; it definitely has a kick to it

Bake this for a quick delicious dinner ~ it’s good enough for company!

Orange Roughy w/Roasted Grape Tomatoes


3 orange roughy fillets
1 pint grape tomatoes, halved
Salt and seasoned pepper
1 lemon, sliced thin
1/3 cup Wishbone Robusto Italian Dressing
½ pitted black olives, sliced
Cooking spray


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Spread tomatoes over bottom of 11” x 7” baking dish that has been coated with cooking spray.
Sprinkle fillets with salt and seasoned pepper, place on tomatoes.
Arrange lemon slices over fish.
Combine dressing and olives, spoon over lemon and fillets.
Bake for 15-20 minutes, depending on thickness of fish, until it flakes easily with a fork.
Serve immediately.

  1. Hi Pam,
    I am back from some R&R and love this recipe. I missed a few of your posts and recipes while I was gone, but I will try to read them shortly. I did see the one about your Anniversary..Good luck and many more. I have used Italian salad dressing for a number of dishes including chicken. Lots of robust flavors. Thanks for sharing...Have a good week...
    Dottie :)

    1. Dottie, thanks so much for the good wishes, and I hope your R&R was great! I love this Robusto Italian dressing! It's packed with more tangy, robust flavors than the regular Italian dressing. Have a great rest of the week!

  2. How delicious! It has been awhile since I have bought orange roughy. We love the flavor! Thanks!

    1. Nellie, thanks! We seldom see Orange Roughy here so I grab it when I do, for its mild flavor.

  3. I have never heard of orange roughy fillets or Wishbone Robusto Italian Dressing :-( Sure though I can invent something close using as close as I can to the recipe. Have a good day Diane

    1. Thanks, Diane! The fish is usually thick, meaty and mild tasting. It's not in the fish case here often though. Yes, a mild whitefish and Italian dressing would work fine. :-)

  4. We had fish tonight too..not familiar with this sauce?

    Will look next time in the US:)

    1. Hi Monique! Can't wait until we have fish on the grill more, whenever the weather gets better.

  5. Aside from the bottle dressing, this sounds good.

  6. Looks like a fine and healthy dish Pam

    1. Thanks, Larry! It's pretty good.

  7. I love roast tomatoes! And they pair perfectly with fish. This is such a nice idea for a recipe -- thanks so much.

    1. Glad you like it, John! Thanks!

  8. My mouth is watering for all of those flavors.....Looks Delicious!!

Tender and Delicious Italian-Style Baked Chicken Breasts

Are you in the mood for chicken tonight? If you are, here’s a great recipe for it!

Everyone seems to love chicken and there are several things I like about this recipe:  the ease of preparation, just a few simple ingredients and no sacrifice of the flavor because it is simple.  It tastes mmm mmm good! 
This dish is great for a weeknight meal or company also.  Just dip the chicken breasts into beaten eggs, coat them with the Parmesan bread crumb mixture, drizzle with the spicy, garlicky Robusto Italian dressing and pop them into the oven.  They come out baked to perfection, being fork tender.  I served it with rice and a crisp mesclun salad.

Succulent Slow-cooker Pork Loin in Gravy

It’s that time of year when I like pulling out the slow cooker and letting it cook dinner for us!

Thisslightly adapted recipe is from Trisha Yearwood’s Home Cooking cookbook.  Not only can she sing, she can evidently cook very well also.  Her cookbooks are filled with down-home simple recipes that would appeal to most anyone.  

We really like pork and I really like the slow-cooker, so this recipe is a win win!  It has the right mix of ingredients with its spicy rub, chicken broth, lemon juice and soy sauce.  The pork is fall apart tender and delicious Trisha says, “ Before I found this recipe, my attempts at cooking pork loin usually began with high hopes and ended with dry, overcooked meat.  The secret is the slow-cooking crockpot.  Spices in the rub get a chance to really flavor the loin, and it doesn’t dry out.  In fact, it’s so tender that it actually falls apart!” 

The singer/cook is right ~ it is scrumptious!  I hope you try it and like it as much as we do!

Bubba’s Winning Homemade Summer Sausage

You’re probably asking why would anyone bother to make their own summer sausage.  The reason is, because it is so very delicious!

The flavor of Bubba's home made sausage is much better than the store bought version, cheaper also and you know exactly what it consists of.  You control the ingredients ~ no added chemicals~ and flavor it as you like.  It reminds me of growing up on the farm with Dad making our own pork sausage, not similar to supermarket sausage at all.
Our older son, known as Bubba here on my blog, has been refining his summer sausage recipe and has hit on the exact proportions for it.   It's easy to pull together, it just takes time; requiring 5 days to cure.  

There is no casing involved.  Do not use a grade of ground beef with very low fat content as the result will be dry and crumbly.  Do not substitute any other salt for the Morton Tender Quick Cure ~ it is not the same thing!
It’s a great summer sausage that you just slice and serve with cheese and crackers or …

The Best Lemon Pound Cake ~ I’m Telling You the Truth!

On my September 27th post, I told you I would be baking the Lemon Pound Cake recipe from the Tate’s Bake Shop Cookbook that Bill had been yearning for.  I finally got around to baking it and now I’m trying to figure out what took me so long…

You know how foodies say, “I swear, it’s the best I’ve ever eaten?”  Sometimes I try the recipe, sometimes I don’t.  Everyone’s taste is different and you just never know; however, I can honestly say, “this Lemon Pound Cake is the best pound cake I have ever eaten in my life.”  And Bill echoes the same.  NO LIE!!!  It is outstanding!!!
Here’s what Kathleen King, the owner and founder of Tate’s Bake Shop, says about her cake, “The lemon flavor really comes through in my lemon pound cake.  It keeps well and freezes well, and is exceptional on its own or with fresh berries and cream.”

Here’s what I say about it:  Enjoy it on its own!   If you love lemon and love pound cake, you will fall hard for this one!  It’s so good that after having a slice of it, …

Crispy Spicy Jicama Chips

It’s a “Mexican potato” that is in season year-round, looks like a turnip; has either tan, brown or gray skin, with a crisp juicy, refreshing, slightly white, flesh on the inside, resembling an apple.

It’s as easy as a potato to peel and I’ve discovered, it’s just as good roasted as it is raw.It’s jicama ~ Spanish: hee-kah-mah.

Jicama is traditionally served raw, dunked in chili powder, lime and salt to boost its mild flavor; or in a salsa or salad.I’ve only had jicama raw, in a salsa, so I had a big surprise when I bit into a slice of roasted jicama!

A friend, Yvonne, gave me this recipe and I’m glad she did.   Jicama is quick and easy to roast, and retains its crispy crunch and sweetness when it comes out of the oven.  Thinly slice it, dredge with a spicy mixture and roast it to a crunchy chip-like texture.  Roasted jicama is a great substitute for potato chips!  
Here are some jicama tips:
Choose jicama with smooth, thin unblemished skins, a slight shine is an indication of freshness.

“He toasted his bacon on a fork and caught the drops of fat on his bread; then he put the rasher on his thick slice of bread, and cut off chunks with a knife, poured his tea into his saucer, and was happy.”
