    Seems like a lot of pepper. I just added a couple twists of the pepper grinder.

    I changed the recipe to read "black pepper, to taste". That would be a little peppery! Thanks for pointing it out, Cindy!

    I wish there was a way to change the recipe down to one serving or maybe two. I know I could sit a figure it out but for those of us alone it would make it much easier.

    Hi Anonymous! We have made significant changes to our site over the past few weeks; all ultimately to improve the over all ease and functionality of the site. Adjusting the number of servings was a feature we had on the old version of the website and will be adding it back in the future. In the meantime, if you have the iphone or android app you can easily adjust the servings on a recipe to 1-8 servings and the ingredients will adjust accordingly. If you don't have the phone app (and until we get the feature added back to the website) Chef Leslie or I would be more than happy to help you adjust any recipes you may need help with. For one serving for this recipe you will need the following: 1 (6 ounce fillet) tilapia 2 1/2 (ounce) peanuts 1/4 (tablespoon) soy sauce 1/2 (clove) garlic 1/2 (tablespoon) brown sugar 1/2 (tablespoon) olive oil (to taste) black pepper Continue with recipe as directed.

    Hi Chef - I served sauteed garlicky spinach and a green salad with balsamic dressing.

    Is there a way to figure out which recipes can be made ahead and frozen? I would like to be able to do all the shopping and cooking over the weekend and simply reheat or bake dinner when I get home on weekdays.

    Fantastic question, Anonymous! I'll definite bring this up to everyone as something that would be helpful, but in the meantime, please either feel free to post requests on any recipe you're interested in, or otherwise, to let us know what sort of dishes you're interested in--and maybe our chefs can start up a list of of suitable recipes. Are you looking primarily for casseroles, or also for dishes where you can precook certain components and then combine them on cooking day? Certainly, many of the casseroles and slow cooker dishes, and chilis, for instance, will do very well!

    @Anonymous, I would happily help you with this. Let me know what sort of foods your family enjoys and I'll send you some recipes! FYI, most casseroles freeze well, but we have many others on our site that will too!

    Thanks Donna and Chef Leslie. I have a 5 year old and an 18 month old so I am looking for healthy family meals which are kid-friendly, not too spicy for the kids but with the option to add the spice on the side for the adults. I don't particularly have a knack for cooking, so simple recipes would work best.

    Hi Anonymous! Chef Leslie shared some links to some great Food on the Table recipes that would freeze well. I would also like to chime in and add some links to previous discussions on the Food on the Table site regarding freezer prep and cooking.

    Thank you! this is very helpful. The only other thing I would like to know if possible is how many calories are in each serving of these recipes. Thanks again!

    @Anonymous- While a select number of our recipes contain nutritional data, this is not something we currently offer for all recipes on the site. However, if you do a quick internet search you will find a number of websites that provide nutritional data calculators that will allow you to plug in recipes or ingredients and will calculate the nutritional information for you. A rough estimate of the nutritional data for this recipe would be approximately 276 calories 12 carbs 19g fat and 28g protein; per serving. Please note that this is just an estimate since I am a chef not a registered dietician or nutritionist.

    Ok, I kind of have an idea how good his would be if 1. I used a food processor & not a blender & 2. I probably shouldn't have broiled it. Baking it might have been okay. I will try this again, though. Maybe even tomorrow night.

    My whole family was disappointed with this meal. It tasted like a peanut butter sandwich

    Why isn't the nutrition information on this recipe? That info would be very helpful.

    Weak flavor, needs something more. But I'm not a good enough cook to know what
