This recipe comes from an adorable cookbook I use all the time called The Asian Grandmother’s Cookbook.

We eat them as soon as they are cool […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
I can’t rave enough about this dish and this cookbook, 5 Spices, 50 Dishes. This sauce was so good, I ate the leftovers straight with a spoon.

Mulligatawny, a part of Anglo-Indian cuisine and Seinfeld’s Soup Nazi fame, is a perfect change from a traditional chicken and rice soup. Be sure to use bone-in chicken, a nice fresh squeeze of lemon juice, and if you are a fan, a decent pile of cilantro on top. I like to use a mixture […]Continue Reading... No Comments.

I could eat this chicken from Epicurious every day. The sauce is so flavorful and delicious, I gave it a solid A grade. I also have a massive sweet tooth. This dish is only mildly sweet, but for someone (like my husband) who thinks sweet needs to stay on the dessert plate, he gave […]Continue Reading... No Comments.

Boneless/skinless will result in a much blander dish. Ingredients: 2 tablespoons regular olive oil 8 chicken thighs (with skin on […]Continue Reading... No Comments.

Is there anything in life better than homemade custard? I really don’t think so. I usually make a double batch of this after having a dozen yolks leftover from making an angel food cake.

It took me a little while to find our favorite sauce, and here it is.
