Crispy Fish
I had some fresh sea bass but I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with it and this recipe was delicious. I made a couple of changes though, I didn't have potato flakes so I just used flour. (I want to try this again with the flakes though.) Also, I whisked an egg in a bowl and dipped the fish in that then sprinkled the seasoning's right onto the fish then dredged in the flour and fried in butter. My fish had skin on so I only dredged and seasoned one side and cooked skin side first. The skin crisped up so the fish easily came away. I served it with new potatoes cooked with butter, salt and pepper then a sprinkled some freshly grated parmesan cheese on top and had green beans with chopped sweet pepper. I would definitely make this again!

Fry Bread Tacos II
I only gave this a 3 star rating as I love the fry bread itself but changed the topping completely. I made my own refried beans for topping by using 1 can of pinto beans drained and rinsed, then put 1/4 cup of olive oil into a sauce pan and heating over med heat then adding the pinto beans, 1 tbsp chilli powder, 1 tsp ground cumin, 1 tsp garlic powder and s/p to taste. Stir and mash until heated through. Also, I used spicy shredded beef instead of ground beef. Use a 1 lb chuck roast cut into cubes, 1 small onion finely chopped, 3 garlic cloves peeled and grated, 2 tbsp chilli powder, 2 tsp ground cumin, 3 tbsp red wine vinegar, 1 cup beef broth and s/p to taste. In a slow cooker combine all ingredients, add beef stir well to coat, cover and cook for 4 hours. Remove the beef shred and return to the pot for another hour. Then top the fry bread with bean mixture, shredded beef, shredded cheese, lettuce, salsa and sour cream. Delicious, thinking about listing this as fry bread number 3! Thank you for sharing the fry bread recipe, I would definitely make them again.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup
This soup was very good and it was quick to make. I only gave 4 stars though as I did make some changes for flavor since the only seasoning was stock/boullion and s/p. I added a pinch of thyme, some basil, fresh oregano, sprinkle mustard powder and some fresh grated parmesean cheese. I also reduced the amount of milk used. I served it with a freshly baked baguette for dipping into the broth. I would definately make this again, thank you so much for sharing.
