M&M Cookies

Ingredients:
2 1/4 cup flour
3/4 cup + 2 tsp of light brown sugar
3/4 cup + 2 tsp of sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1 cup shortening (or butter flavor shortening) I use Crisco.
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup M&Ms

Mix together the dry ingredients in a bowl

Beat the shortening, brown sugar, granulated sugar and vanilla together in mixer. Add the eggs, then slowly pour in the dry ingredients.

Stir in the M&Ms by hand and drop on cookie sheet.  I add extra M&Ms on top!

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes (depending on your oven) or until just golden brown. Cool then place on wire rack.

Mahi Mahi Fish Tacos

Mahi Mahi Fish Tacos
I try to make these as healthy as possible.  You can make your own Avocado Lime Sauce or use the yogurt avocado dressing from https://www.bolthouse.com/product/cilantro-avocado/, which is what I used.  But whatever you like best will work and taste great!

Avocado Lime Sauce:
~ 1/2 cup sour cream (use light if you want to make it with less calories)
~ 1 avocado
~ 1 to 2 tablespoons cilantro
~ lime zest and lime juice from one lime
Mix together in blender and chill while you make the fish tacos

Blackened Tacos:
We purchased 1 1/2 pounds of Mahi Mahi so we would have some left over

~ Brush fish with olive oil
~ sprinkle with favorite blackened seasoning, (on both sides) I used Paul Prudhomme’s Magic Blackened seasoning or make your own.
~ Heat oil in skillet and cook fish 2 to 3 minutes on each side
~ Serve in tortilla with tomatoes, cabbage, avocado, lime wedge and your avocado lime sauce

I added black beans; rice and quinoa
