Makhani Chicken

Okay…so I’m on an Indian spice food kick at the moment…I recently made up a recipe for an Indian-spiced Rice which I made again for this meal and I topped it with this sweet tomato-based creamy chicken entree. Makhani Chicken (murg makhani) or Butter chicken is a dish of chicken in a spiced tomato, butter and cream sauce. It originated in the Indian subcontinent…I created my own recipe and it was super delicious! Continue reading

Penne with Eggplant & Tomato Sauce

I am cooking a lot more vegetarian dishes than ever before…and loving it! With a growing family, we have so many different dietary requirements and desires. Don’t get me wrong, we still love grilling steaks and barbecuing chicken – but we are developing a new palate in our house. There are so many more flavors out there that we just never considered…like this delicious pasta that I made from the leftover Eggplant & Tomato Soup…so, so good… Continue reading

Baked Shrimp With A Lemon & Tarragon Mayonnaise: Revisited

Baked Shrimp With A Lemon & Tarragon Mayonnaise 1
Today I’m sharing a recipe I made back in 2018: “I like to entertain, but I do try to keep things simple. Baking the shrimp instead of boiling them takes way less time and ends up perfect every time.  Then, instead of the same old cocktail sauce (although I served that too), I made a mayonnaise-based sauce for dipping. My guests went crazy over it and the cocktail sauce was left untouched! The best part was that this time I got to share it first-hand with my Fabulous Fare Sister…Linda…she was there too! If you’re serving shrimp – try this method…and the sauce is better if made a day ahead, which is always nice…”  Continue reading

Indian-Spiced Rice

I’m a big fan of Indian cuisine…and I recently bought a few different types of all natural little packages of Indian food at the supermarket just to give them a try. To accompany the entree I created an Indian-spiced rice to compliment it and bulk it up for a quick lunch for my husband and I…the Indian Jaipur Vegetables entree was very good! And served on top of this tasty rice it was even better…. Continue reading

Lobster Bisque Scalloped Potatoes

Lobster Bisque Scalopped Potatoes
This Scalloped Potatoes dish is beyond decadent, it’s even crave worthy… Born out of our current shopping challenges, I was forced to get creative when I couldn’t find what I was looking for and had to figure how to create the dishes I wanted with what I had, or what I could get. I love Wegmans Lobster Bisque from the soup bar and as you know there are no open food bars in the grocery stores. Well, as fate would have it they did have it in containers so I bought a few…. Long story short, I wanted to make Scalloped Potatoes but couldn’t get milk that day so I improvised with what was in the refrigerator… and wait till you see what I used to substitute milk. (I’ve also now used the bisque as a pasta sauce adding shrimp, crab and scallops). Continue reading

Roasted Butternut Squash, Potato & Radish Salad

I love trying different combinations in salads…while perusing the fresh produce at my local supermarket I picked up some random items that I thought might work in a salad…and they did! I tossed them all in extra virgin olive oil and seasoned them with salt & fresh ground pepper then popped them in the oven to roast. Thirty minutes later I drizzled the roasted veggies with a savory dressing and a delicious salad was born… Continue reading
