Pyrex’s World Record

This past March, I was able to attend the International Home and Housewares show in Chicago. It is a great place for a kitchen product geek like me to see the newest items coming on to the market and in a few cases test out those new products. It is a place where manufacturers seek buyers for their new products and there are even awards for new innovations.


In the whirlwind of new items sat the very large area that Pyrex occupied. You know Pyrex, they make those hard glass baking dishes and measuring cups. While Pyrex had their share of new products, they were also there to celebrate something old, their company. Pyrex is celebrating their 100 year anniversary in 2015.

To celebrate they decided to go big. REALLY BIG. In fact, Guinness Book of Worlds Records big. They unveiled the largest measuring cup ever made. Check out the photos here.

If I am not going to eat fish the day I buy it, I prefer individually wrapped frozen fillets.

This pineapple relish can work for a whole host of dishes.

Spicy Tilapia with Pineapple-Pepper Relish

Servings: 4 servings (serving size: 1 fillet, about 1/2 cup relish, and 1 lime wedge) 


2 teaspoons canola oil
1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
4 (6-ounce) tilapia fillets
1 1/2 cups chopped fresh pineapple chunks
1/3 cup chopped onion
1/3 cup chopped plum tomato
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
1 small jalapeño pepper, seeded and chopped
4 lime wedges


1. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Combine Cajun seasoning, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Sprinkle fish evenly with spice mixture. Add fish to pan, and cook for 2 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness.

2. Combine pineapple and next 5 ingredients (through jalapeño) in a large bowl, stirring gently. Serve pineapple mixture with fish. Garnish with lime wedges.

    I love fish. Usually my husband and I eat Salmon. We have heart issues. I have a pacemaker, and he has had a five-by pass. New recipes are welcome in this house. My son fixes the fish carefully, and it tastes wonderful. He wants us to live a long, lengthy life!
