Baked Alaskan Cod with Spinach and Salsa

by Meegan on July 22, 2014

Happy Tuesday!  Our family weekend with our kids and grand kiddos was this past week/weekend.  It was REALLY fun!  You know how much I LOVE the ocean, so I was VERY happy to be somewhere that I love with those whom I love.  What could be better, right???

I am still visiting our kids and grand kiddos, but I thought you would like this delish recipe of Baked Alaskan Cod with Spinach and Salsa for your Summer recipes.

This is one of the easiest recipes I have ever made and it only has 3 ingredients.  Yep, you read that right THREE ingredients.

Alaskan Cod with Spinach and Salsa


{Baked Alaskan Cod with Spinach and Salsa}

12 oz Alaskan Cod

2 full cups fresh spinach

1 cup fresh salsa

 Using a small (2 TBS) amount of olive oil, grease a 7″ x 9″ glass dish.

Place 2 cups of spinach in the bottom of the baking dish.

Put (fresh or thawed) Alaskan Cod on top of the spinach.

Pour 1 cup fresh salsa over the fish.

Bake at 350* for 15 minutes or until fish is flaky.

That’s it. I know, it could not be more simple, could it?  You could also wrap the ingredients in foil and cook it on your grill.  (It would definitely keep your house cool that way)

 I like making this dish, not only because it is so simple packed with flavor, BUT because we get our veggies when we eat it, too.  I like to make Brown Jasmine rice to accompany this meal.

Have you ever had Jasmine rice? SO good!  Try it sometime.

I am so happy you stopped in for my recipe for Baked Alaskan Cod with Spinach and Salsa. Let me know if you try it.  I would love to hear your comments and opinions.

Make it a terrific Tuesday!

It’s that time of week that makes me so happy.  It’s Field Trip Friday.  Today we have Ann visiting What Meegan Makes.  I am thrilled to have Ann on my blog.  Especially for all of you to see her talent and creativity.  It’s your turn Ann…

Hello! I’m Ann and I write the lifestyle website called On Sutton Place. I’m a reluctant empty nester who got a wild idea a few years ago to start a blog that focused on all the various aspects of my home. The house itself, the garden, the porches, the kitchen and the family that lives there. What started as something to fill the empty hours has turned into a full time job that I love. I am a DIY, self-taught decorator and a firm believer in surrounding yourself with things you love.

When Meegan invited me to visit her readers and tell a bit about myself I wasn’t quite sure what to say. So I’ll just start from the beginning. When I decided to start a blog, I had no idea what I was doing. Deep down I knew I just had to try. I was a magazine junkie and devoured every issue of several different home and garden publications.

About Ann Drake | On  Sutton Place

My sewing skills came in very handy as did my ability to use a paint brush. I wasn’t afraid of hard work and I will be the first to tell you that hard work really does pay off.  For more on that read The Story of Our House.

I love a collected-over-time and classic look…but if I really like something that doesn’t quite fit, I do my best to make it work. Even if it isn’t the right style or color. I decorate in layers so it’s easy to change the look of a room by just switching out a layer or two.

I especially love being in my kitchen. I am a very basic cook and I enjoy making family dinners. A good place to start to see what comes out of my kitchen is Family Favorites. I also share some basic baking tips that I’ve picked up over the years. The perfect recipe, in my opinion, has no more than 5 or 6 ingredients. Simple is almost always best!

Other than my kitchen, my two favorite places to hang out are my yard and my sewing room. We’ll start with the yard. It’s come a long way since we moved in and I recently rounded up my ten best gardening posts on what I’ve learned. Nothing makes me happier than decorating with flowers from my garden.

Shortly after I started my blog, I opened an online shop called Sutton Place Designs. I make and sell textile home furnishings from vintage fabrics, ticking and linen. I usually list items in my shop once a month and always let my readers know on my blog and through my social media. I’d love to have any of Meegan’s readers stop over and take a look around.

So that’s the story of my blog in a nutshell. I want to thank Meegan for having me and invite you all to stop and visit On Sutton Place anytime!

Vintage Mason Jar and Birthday Flowers

by Meegan on July 16, 2014

Happy Wednesday my friends!  I am really happy to be here with you today.  It’s an exciting time for our family. We are having our family reunion this coming weekend.  The plans are filled with food, water, games, family time, food, family pictures, sand, food, and lots of hugs and kisses from the grand babies, oh!  Did I mention food?

I had a wonderful birthday last weekend.  I was spoiled by my hubby, friends and kids. I received these gorgeous flowers as a gift.  I used my floral tips, but once they started wilting, I still want to keep some around.

I like using a Vintage Mason Jar and Birthday Flowers to continue the celebration in our living room.

Happy Thursday!  It’s nice to be with you on the hot, humid day. It has been hot and rainy most of the week here in Vegas.  Don’t get me wrong-I LOVE the Summer rain. BUT, it does keep me out of the pool with the lightening storms.  Boo!

One good thing about the weather is that I crave fresh veggies and fruit.  What your favorite Summer “go-to” recipe?  Mine is Summer Cole Slaw with Poppy Seed Dressing and Cashews. Yummy!

This recipe is fresh, crisp, sweet and salty all in one bite.

DIY Embellished Frame

by Meegan on July 9, 2014

This post is sponsored by Blueprint Social and Plaid Crafts.

I am one of the lucky ones that gets to share a new type of craft sensation.  It’s called Decoden. Today I am going to share with you Mod Podge Collage Clay. And how you can make a DIY Decoden Embellished Frame.

At first you might feel that Decoden is too much embellishing, but that’s part of the excitement.  AND, when you get to work with it like I have recently, you will be hooked. Decoden is the art of decorating anything with trinkets, and “the more the merrier”.

As I have used Mod Podge Collage Clay, I was excited to make my DIY Embellished Frame.

Now, doesn’t that look fun?  Let me show you how I made my frame.

I received these Mod Podge products: Collage Clay in Strawberry and Vanilla, Hot Melts, Mod Molds, and Collage Drizzle Paint.

DIY Embellished Frame

 My first step was to make  some embellishments with the Hot Melts and the Mod Molds.  Using a mini high temp glue gun I filled the molds and waited ten minutes for them to harden.  You can also fill your Mod Molds with Collage Clay.  Wait 24 hours to dry and pop them right out.

While I was waiting for the Hot Melts, I gathered my trinkets.  I used glitter, crystals, shells, starfish, keys, sequins, and a few scrapbook supplies.

Now it was time to start my DIY Embellished Frame.  I used the star tip with strawberry collage clay to cover the top of my frame.  Making rosettes I was ready to add my embellishments.

 I began to add my shells and crystals.  Then the real fun started.  I remembered “the more, the merrier” while I added my trinkets and embellishments.

I was having so much fun that I decorated a clothes pin to hold my picture.  Some glitter and a shell was just the right touch.

Now it was time to let my frame dry.  It takes a full 24 hours for the Collage Clay to dry.  So, don’t be in a rush to use your Decoden art.  Let it dry completely.

  I have to admit I was a little nervous about designing an over the top look in my 3D collage clay. But using this new technique was a lot of fun. I KNOW you will enjoy it as well.

Collage Clay is not recommended for children ages 12 and under, and the product is not edible. Small parts are a choking hazard for children.

Here are more varieties of how YOU can create your own Decoden art with Mod Podge Collage Clay:

You will find Plaid products in your local Michaels Store.

Summer Condo Balcony Makeover

by Meegan on July 7, 2014

Good Morning and Happy Monday to everyone! I have had a lot of creative time to work on my Summer Condo Balcony Makeover.  As I shopped, I could visually see how this was all going to come together.

Since I had been looking at ideas for an outdoor space, my mind was reeling with ideas.  Even though our space is only 6′x9′, I KNEW I could create a one of a kind space for us.

Creating a Summer Condo Balcony Makeover has been my goal for the past 2 weeks.  I am exited to share the transformation with you.

 Well, Happy Saturday everyone.  I hope you are all having a wonderful July 4th weekend.  Actually the 4th of July is my birthday.  I know-I am among very few people who share this birthday of our country.  It is an honor for me.  Thanks to ALL of my dear family and friends-I had a wonderful day.

Two of my lovely daughters had these gorgeous flowers sent to me.  I thought I would share them with you, too. I wish you could smell their fragrance filling our home.

As I have mentioned to you before, I am in the process of making our tiny balcony a retreat for Hubby and me.  It has been really fun.  During that process I made my Sea Glass Shell Bowl Pottery Barn Knock-off.

Pottery Barn’s price is just for the large shell, not the whole set up.  My cost was for everything in the vignette.
