Chicken Korma

I was given this recipe by a really good friend of mine.  I love getting handwritten  recipes from people.  It feels so authentic and personal to me.  These are recipes that people share with their loved ones.  And then they took the time to sit down and write it.  I adore handwriting.  Mine is not the best, but if I write very slowly I can produce something I am proud to share.  Also, since people so rarely give handwritten recipes anymore, it feel extra special to me!

#SundaySupper: Chicken Chowder

#SundaySupper is a group of bloggers who are on a mission to bring back supper around the family table in every home.  This week the theme is comfort food.

Whenever I think of comfort food I always think of soup.  Soup always makes things better.  If I have a cold or if I am homesick I want soup.  Soup always makes me feel better; always warms my soul.  I use to have to go out for soup.  But I am working on it.  I have been collecting soup recipes and slowly but surely attempting to make them.  Some times they are horrible, but lately I have been making some really delicious soup!!!

Asian-Marinated Baked Chicken

Apparently I send very business like texts.  I get to the point.  Texting takes too much work to be frilly.  Who, what, where, when and why was it funny?  Those are normally the questions answered by my texts.

#SundaySupper: Grilled Chicken Pita Sandwich

#SundaySupper is a group of bloggers who are on a mission to bring back supper around the family table in every home.  This week everyone is cooking from The Mom 100 Cookbook by Katie Workman.

This is crazy!  I improvised!  Normally, I strictly follow recipes.  I am just not confident that I can alter something and it will still taste good.  But today I did not have a recipe and so I was spontaneous.

AND IT WORKED!!!!!  Ok, to start for #sundaysupper we are making something from Katie Workman’s cookbook.  I don’t have the cookbook so I had to use one of the recipes that is online already.  She has a parsley, lemon, rosemary roast chicken recipe that I thought might taste good grilled.  Not to mention there is no way I am going to turn on the oven in this heat.  (Also, I used parsley instead of rosemary.  I forgot to buy rosemary.)

#SundaySupper: Ranch Chicken Tacos

#SundaySupper is a group of bloggers who are on a mission to bring back sunday supper around the family table in every home.  This week the theme is beat the heat or recipes that require little heating.

This was absolutely delicious!  And I am still eating left overs!  Now that is a rare dish around my place.  Finding things that taste good day one and day six are hard to come by.  But this dish has passed the test.

Tequila- Lime Chicken

This was really good.  Not as spicy as I had thought it would be.  The blog I got it from said you could put all the ingredients in a blender to make the marinate.  I might do that next time.  See if it adds a little more kick.

The Hunger Games: Lunch with Cinna (Chicken in Orange Sauce)

This is an ongoing series of food related to The Hunger Games, here are the links to the other recipes- Peeta’s raisin nut bread, the bakery bread Katniss and Gale ate in the woods, the Capitol pancakes, District 11 bread (crescent rolls with seeds), Mellark’s Apple and Goat Cheese Tarts, Goose Liver and Puffy Bread, Lamb Stew and Dried Plums, Cake on Fire, Hot Chocolate,

Cinna invites me to sit on one of the couches and takes his place across from me.  He presses a button on the side of the table.  The top splits from below rises a second tabletop that holds our lunch.  Chicken and chunks of oranges cooked in a creamy sauce laid on a bed of pearly white grain, tiny green peas and onions, rolls shaped like flowers, and for dessert, a pudding the color of honey.

Produce Sale: Habanero Peppers- Caribbean Chicken Breasts

Produce Sale is an ongoing series.  What happens is I go to the grocery store or the farmer’s market and find vegetables or fruit that are on sale or super cheap and regardless of whether I have ever cooked with it before, I buy it and find a recipe for it.

This time I went grocery shopping the peppers were on sale.  I have never cooked with habanero peppers, so I grabbed 5.  So, this is not the first recipe I will be using them in, because this one only calls for one pepper.  Opps, I liked this though so hopefully everything else I use them for will turn out just as awesome.
