What kind of leaf is this? That Ain't a leaf that's Basil

Hey girl hey, is anybody out there? Whelp, it's been a few days hasn't it? I had post ready to be done last week until life decided to slap me in the face. I'll tell y'all all about how I'm broke, busted and disgusted later this week. Today is not the time for that. Today is recipe day. I wasn't going to post a recipe today. Truthfully it would have been a miracle if I had got to my Cara Box post. Yo eyes ain’t deceive you. I have yet to post it. I just keep eating the candy and still have yet to take a pic of the gifts Ann Marie sent me. Don't you dare start blessin' my heat. And no I don't have any sweet tea to take away cause I've been drinking water like a Yankee.

So I was emailing the lovely Bekah earlier today and she inspired this recipe. I had to run to the store and get some broth for the Seester. She had to go to the emergency room this morning. Y’all pray for a speedy recovery. But the way she was jammin’ out to Justin Timberlake while I was typin’ this I think she is feelin’ better. Doc told her she was severely dehydrated and had a stomach virus. Thanks for the idea Bekah
Half a lemon
Old Bay Seasoning
Basil leaves
Olive Oil (optional)
1 Preheat the oven at 350 degrees. Do I have to keep tellin’ y’all that?
2. I used two pieces of Tilapia that I cut into many pieces.
3. Season the Tilapia to your liking with the Old Bay Seasoning.
4. Take the half lemon and pour the juice over the Tilapia.
5. Wrap a Basil Leaf on each piece of fish
6. Place the fish in a pam greased baking dish and cook at 20 degrees for about 20 minutes.
7. Y'all enjoy



  1. Glad my vegetarian, seafood-loathing self managed to inspire this. lol.

  2. omgggg you're making me so hungry!!! love tilapia

  3. Definitely praying! Hope she's back to 100% soon! And believe it or not, I've never had tilapia!


I respond to comments via email unless your email is unlisted. Then I'll respond via the blog. Thank y'all. Remember to always take the sweet tea!
