A childhood favorite; my mom’s is always better than mine! The zesty curry becomes both a foil for, and a bridge between the chicken and earthy potatoes. Don’t be shy with the curry powder. The layering of the curry builds up to a tasty result. I prefer a combination of Sambal and Madras curry powders.
Moist and flavorful, this roast will become a regular in your recipe rotation. Adding the garlic and onion toward the end of the cooking time ensures their flavor does not “cook out” over the long braising time. Mash the garlic and onion on top of the roast before slicing to enjoy their sweet, mellow goodness in every bite. Leftovers make wonderful sandwiches, too!
This soup is delicious, healthy and easy to make. A perfect accompaniment to a light meal, as it is not too heavy. The pureed beans and caramelized onions have a rich, flavorful consistency, and the rosemary adds just the right amount of fresh herb aroma.
This tasty and colorful Italian dish benefits from gentle stewing – the delicious juices from the chicken impart the sauce with natural goodness. For this reason, plain, unseasoned tomato puree is in order, to produce a pure, fresh-tasting sauce that will accent both the chicken and your favorite pasta. Browning the tomato paste is key in order to produce a rich tomato gravy, devoid of that “tinny” canned taste.
A delicious, hearty soup for a cool winter’s night. The barley becomes plump and rich, adding great texture. You can add just about any vegetables you like. Truffle oil enhances the natural flavors of the ingredients and adds a rich, sophisticated touch to an otherwise ordinary soup.
Michael told me the steak he’d had at the Y-O Ranch Steakhouse in Dallas had been “lightly breaded” after being seasoned with “spices,” soy sauce and red wine vinegar. BREADED?? A RIBEYE?? After being offended, I was curious enough to check it out for myself…
Balsamic vinegar takes on a rich, sweet quality after roasting. The gremolata-like garnish of lemon zest and parsley adds a fresh, vibrant touch. A delicious, flavorful way to roast your next chicken.
January 29 marks the arrival of The Year of The Dog. How are YOU celebrating?
…chickens, pigs, and tigers, oh my! – two whole chickens (head and feet attached)
The sauce also works well with cashews. Ginger and red pepper add a nice “zing” to the sauce, and the texture is great!
