Coconut Chicken Fingers with Chilli Sauce

Coconut Chicken Fingers with Chilli Sauce

Ah. Homemade Coconut Chicken Fingers. Ya got to love them. First, plain and boring or secondly with a little chili sauce and perhaps some cajan spice and you are on your way to a little blitz in heaven. Two problems here though. I am not a fan of the first kind and this recipe has nothing to do with a scrumptious dipping sauce. A nice addition, yes, but not a main part of this dish. Or is it? What's in the dish? coconuts coconut milk coconut oil (get the feeling that there is lots of coconuts? Ya, there is!) chicken cayenne pepper and more! I wish I could just chalk it up to the

Garlic Ham Pizza Sliders

Garlic Ham Pizza Sliders

Well, as they say... good intentions are absolutely every...thing! Right? Well, honestly, I did have good intentions. I truly had a great idea. A series of posts bringing you along a journey of healthy eating and sure enough. Hey, look. There's a squirrel! Or something. Some kind of distraction. Forget the squirrel. Did you just taste these garlic and ham pizza sliders in your head? It's okay. I tell myself that it is okay. But them sliders though! I love, love kneading fresh dough. The feeling of splashing just the right amount of flour over the rawness of a mound of dough. Reminds me of

Mashed Potato Pancakes

Mashed Potato Pancakes

Every potato pancake recipe I know of has one simple ingredient. Yup... potatoes. But mashed? You bet!!! Mashed Potato Pancakes. Wouldn't life be simpler if we could take EVERY left over food thing and make it into a dish that seems like a first - not a leftover. Come to think of it, wouldn't all of life be better like that? I can think of at least three things. Friendships/relationships, things to do with money like careers, and of course places you have been or travel to. On second thought, let's stick with the food :) Definitely more messier (wink here). Speaking of messy. Them mashed

Indian Butter Chicken

Indian Butter Chicken

I love Indian food. Most of all ~ Indian Butter Chicken. I will be honest though, this is one of those recipes where I've always shied away from making. I think it is because I have convinced myself that I will never be able to make it authentically like the way they do in the restaurants. And certainly not as tasty. Know what? I am happy to say that I was wrong. They only thing that kept me from tasting this AMAZING recipe is my own self doubt. Know what I mean? Having Indian Butter Chicken without naan bread is kind of like having grilled cheese without the cheddar. It doesn't work. And I

Creamy Chicken Sweet Potato Noodles

Creamy Chicken Sweet Potato Noodles

If there is one thing that I would LOVE to say about this Creamy Chicken Sweet Potato Noodles recipe is that it is 100% healthy eating. It sure looks like it and the ingredients could call for more health but truth be told, I went a little bit heavy on two ingredients. Butter (and lots of it) and heavy cream. It gives this recipe a more rich and full flavor. Of course, the wine, mushrooms, garlic et all seriously helps too. I could use a little bit of that right about now. Creamy Chicken Sweet Potato Noodles I am single parenting this week. Well, ok, it is just for two nights. Tam

Ground Turkey & Cabbage Stir-Fry

Ground Turkey & Cabbage Stir-Fry

There is something about this time of year that gets my head swimming. The official season of Spring that brings forth warmer and longer days, fresh flowers and the smell of things new. Then the proverbial dump of unexpected snow that reminds me that old man winter does not want to let go. If you live in such climates, that is. The wonder and beauty of recipes is that people can mix and match ingredients to their heart's content and that's how great food dishes are created. Take this turkey stir fry for example. Throw in some vermicelli noodles, other ingredients like snap peas,
