4 tilapia fillets

1 quart cooking oil (or Crisco)

1 1/2 cups seasoned flour or

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour mixed with 1 TBSP each: Garlic powder, black pepper, paprika, and ½ TBSP of salt

1. Heat the oil in a 3- or 4-quart pan to at least 375-degrees F. (just a couple of drops of water flipped off your hand will really crackle when the oil has reached this heat level).

2. Roll the Tilapia in the flour, shake off excess flour, and let the fillets sit on a rack or, on wax paper, for 5-10 minutes.

3. Roll the fillets in the flour a second time, shake off excess flour, and deep fry, no more than 2 at a time. NOTE** (frying more than 2 fillets at once drives down the oil temperature which will make the fish and coating soggy). Turn once in the pan after a minute or so and remove when golden brown. They should be done in under 4 minutes, white and flakey inside at the thickest section of the filet. Do not overcook!!!!

4. Drain each filet on paper towels for a few seconds and serve. ENJOY 😉



Goodbye Karrueche. Hello Rihanna…AGAIN!!!

ImageSeems that Chris Brown is caught dead smack in the middle of his own “Love triangle”. Today he openly admitted via video (just 2 hours after Rihanna tweeted, “Ain’t nobody bidness….but mines and my baby” ), that he is in love with Rihanna again, and his recently ex-girlfriend Karrueche. While Karrueche has been naively sitting around waiting for her lover boy (Brown) to come home her, he was busy frolicking around various NYC hotspots with Rihanna. Photo’s of them were taken everywhere from Jay-Z’s concert, nightclubsImage, and seen leaving her hotel. After he had crept/slept with Rihanna on Monday night, he sent Karrueche a teddy bear, roses, and chocolates. Hmmm!!!! Karrueche later sent a subliminal tweet saying, “Bye baby”. Although Chris released a new video today explaining himself, it really doesn’t seem like he’s sorry at all. He’s only sorry that he’s been caughtImage. No matter what the case is, he’s only partly to blame. Rihanna was very well aware the relationship between Brown & Tran (Karrueche), and she’s been plotting to get her whorish claws back on him ever since. SMH shameful Miss RiRi!!!

Lil’ Kim, originally born in Brooklyn as Kimberly Jones spent her youth on the streets but when she came to the attention of rap icon, Notorious B.I.G., she was instantly christened as the first lady of B.I.G’s crew and rap group, Junior M.A.F.I.A. She first appeared on Junior M.A.F.I.A.’s certified gold release, “Conspiracy”, and then followed up with her solo debut “Hardcore” which spawned three #1 singles, going double platinum. Her next two albums, Notorious K.I.M. and La Bella Mafia were also certified platinum, making Kim, along with Missy Elliott, one of only two female rap stars to reach the milestone of releasing three platinum selling albums.

Kim’s aggressive rap style, overt and unapologetic sexually charged lyricism and equally sensational and seductive outfits were groundbreaking at the time. Her style has been oft-imitated and in one instance of creative borrowing, raised the ire of the queen bee. Nikki Minaj, the heir apparent of Kim’s title has borrowed heavily from the originator, with imagery, style and content that recalls Kim’s high-profile career. Clearly, Minaj has taken the brazen persona and run with it but by not footnoting the author, she put herself in Kim’s crosshairs. A war of words ensued, followed up by Kim’s Black Friday mixtape an 18 song volley directed straight at Minaj. The beef has invigorated Kim, giving her motivation to reclaim her place in the industry which she intends to accomplish, starting with the Return of Queen tour landing in San Francisco at the Mezzanine on Monday, June 11th
