When I first started to make my way into the kitchen about 6 years ago, I had the toughest time finding recipes to cook throughout the week. I was on a tight college budget and I honestly didn’t know where to look for quick and easy recipes for the everyday home cook. Sure, I would make some amazing quesadillas by Bobby Flay but at the end of the day, spending 1-2 hours prepping for ingredients just wasn’t worth it.

But when I was asked to review Cozi Dinner Decider, an iPhone app that delivers personalized weeknight dinner plans for your family, I couldn’t believe how easy it was to choose a quick and easy weeknight meal right through your phone.

    This was good. I used what I had on hand: catfish for tilapia (and I’m in Massachusetts!), green cabbage for red, with added onion and green pepper, and sour cream for yogurt. Since I had no tacos, I mixed the cabbage with the chipotle mayo, put the fish on a plate and served the cabbage “slaw” on top. I liked it. Thank you.

    The website’s pictures do not show up. The receipe print function doesn’t work. The website won’t let you copy and paste a receipe. If you try to save a receipe and then print it, the website freezes. Other than that everything is OK. JJ

      Jerry, I apologize for the inconvenience but the images are loading just fine, the print function is and has been working, and I was able to copy and paste the recipe onto a word document without any issues. I recommend using browsers such as Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox to print recipes.

    So delicious! The chiptole mayo is really yummy. I used mahi mahi because that is what I had on hand and it was terrific. I love all of her recipes!

    This was damn delicious! Made it last night with Ricoto (Peruvian spicy paste) instead of chipotle paste bc that’s all I had, and mahi mahi instead of tilapia. Absolutely loved it and was surprised at how filling it was! So simple and easy, love it!
