Curry chicken

Adapted from Chatelaine.com

The original recipe calls for chicken thighs , I have some small chicken breast pieces available.

As I have accumulated some canned coconut milk, I found a recipe that used ingredients that I had on hand.

Sauté onions in skillet with oil and a good amount of curry powder.

Add the chicken and stir to coat. Salt as necessary.


Add coconut milk, potatoes, carrots. Cover and simmer a while. Uncover and finish cooking till the sauce reduces to your liking, add the peas and seasonings.


Warm through.


Serve over rice.

A good technic for cooking ,utilizing coconut milk , a tasty dish.

Brussels sprouts saute

here is a quick and easy recipe Diane made  for sauteed Brussels sprouts. Basically melt butter in skillet, add some sliced carrot, saute for a few minutes and add Brussels sprouts and leeks, a tablespoon of water, cover and let steam. season with salt, pepper and caraway seeds. Serve with a dollop of sour cream if desired.

Leeks have been the go to veggie for that onion flavor but with some crunch. Excellent on the grille also. Here with the sprouts, butter and carrots a great combination.

Tomato and carrot sauce

Plain tomato sauce can be boring but amp it up with same veggies and it really is an improvement.

This sauce started out with sauteed onions, then some diced carrots added, cooked till soft.

A link of sausage, casing removed, added and cooked, finally, a can (14 oz) of diced tomatoes and half a can (or less) of tomato soup (Cambell’s), undiluted. Simmer and season.

Beef Ribs

Similar to Osso Buco in preparation, Is the meat closest to the bone the tastiest ?
I can’t resist beef ribs from the warehouse club, a bit pricier it seems than they used to be for this cut but it also seems I don’t eat beef all that often…

Nice marbleizing on the ribs

20140323-182925.jpg

Seasoned flour-coat the ribs and brown in oil. Place them in a oven proof pot that can be covered. Add liquid if desired.

20140323-182947.jpg

(not shown) caramelize some diced carrots in the same pan that you browned the ribs in and place carrots in the bottom on the roasting vessel, top with the browned ribs.

20140323-183006.jpg

Same deal for some onions after a slight browning, now add them on top of the ribs, throw in a few garlic cloves and herbs, sage leaves here….  cover and bake low and slow for a few hours….

20140323-183032.jpg

20140323-183105.jpg

here’s the result, for a different way to serve the carrots, they went into the blender for a puree. The roasted onions served as a side with gravy (dripping from the roasting pot.

20140323-183154.jpg

The ribs are not that fatty, most of it is reduced and the result is beef stratified with a bit of fat.   MMMMMMMMM……..

Very tasty and used in Wrap It Up
