GINNY’S BUTTER CHICKEN MEATBALLS

GINNY’S BUTTER CHICKEN MEATBALLS

Digging into my stash of Friend’s Faves submissions, I found this delicious recipe  for easy butter chicken from Ginny, using ground chicken made into tender juicy little meatballs, floating in a buttery tasting tomato sauce.  The surprise was how buttery it all tasted with only a small amount of butter added at the end. This would be the perfect time to try making the meatballs, blenditarian style. Never heard of it? Well, it’s a great way to cut down on…

MUJADDARA

MUJADDARA

My guy likes pretty much everything I make.  He never complains about my frequent dalliance into the vegetarian, vegan world although I know he loves meaty dishes. But when I get an unsolicited comment like ‘this one’s a keeper Kathy’, I sit up and take notice. The flavours in this Mediterranean inspired dish are wonderful, the crispy fried onion the perfect complement and I think we have found a new favourite comfort food. If you are lucky enough to have…

SHRIMP and SWEET POTATO CURRY

SHRIMP and SWEET POTATO CURRY

Several weeks ago now, my eldest son, his beautiful wife and their darling newest addition to the family visited us. As with most of our get-togethers it was all too brief so we packed in as much quality time as possible.  Those moments, both past and present, when we are gathered together for meals, are what so many great family memories are made of and the meal that my daughter-in-law made for us one particular evening will remain as one…

PEACH YOGURT MUFFINS

PEACH YOGURT MUFFINS

Today this post is brought to you by a guest in my Galley. My son, Luke, is visiting us for the week. He loves to help and is always onboard with offering his assistance whenever needed. This time he donned his fave apron to whip up a batch of some very tasty muffins. They were super simple – all the dry stuff, all the wet stuff, and some canned peaches. All made in our little Omnia stove top oven PEACH YOGURT…

SAFFRON CHICK PEA STEW

SAFFRON CHICK PEA STEW

I’m in the soup and sandwich frame of mind today. Our ‘almost’ above 0 °C (32 ° F) temp starts my wheels turning for a boat picnic… Something quick and easy… something portable… Here is part one of my soup/sandwich duo. Warming but not too heavy, buttery and smooth super easy to make, and transports well in a thermos if that’s the direction you want to head. SAFFRON CHICK PEA STEW 4 cups cooked chick peas (* see note below),…

CAULIFLOWER (not potato) SALAD

CAULIFLOWER (not potato) SALAD

I have been on a cauliflower kick lately. So many surprisingly delicious recipes that can be created using this unassuming vegetable. If you are ‘carb conscious’ as we aren’t, this is a real winner and great substitution for traditional potato salad and easily just as delicious…     CAULIFLOWER (not potato) SALAD 4 cups cooked (steamed) cauliflower florets 1/2 cup chopped onion 3 boiled eggs (yolks removed and set aside, whites chopped) 1/4 cup mayonnaise or Greek yogurt 1 tbsp…

SWEET POTATO PATTIES with CURRIED YOGURT SAUCE

SWEET POTATO PATTIES with CURRIED YOGURT SAUCE

We love our sweet taters. So rich in fibre! …and this recipe with the added yogurt sauce is perfect adding great flavour and apparently the addition of a little fat will aid in the uptake of all that good orange beta-carotene. They also make an easy appetizer or snack. Just make little two inch crispy potato medallions with a touch of sauce on the side.     SWEET POTATO PATTIES   1 large sweet potato, peeled and grated 1/2 tsp…
