Broccoli Stir-fry with Special Sauce

Broccoli Stir-fry with Special Sauce

A delicious vegetarian dinner for #MeatlessMonday or #FoodieFryday, a favorite in my house especially when served with Fried Bananas on the side! You could also leave out the Fried Bananas & just serve this as a vegetable side dish with meat, chicken or seafood.

Serves: 2

Char Siu Pork

Char Siu Pork

I love Chinese Barbecued Pork! It has a wonderful spiciness and that hint of licorice flavour from the Chinese five spice. Of course, the bright red sweet glazed surface on a well marbled piece of pork butt doesn't hurt either! This recipe is designed to be smoked but you still get a great result if you do it in an oven. Some people object to using food colouring but it gives this dish the brilliant red colour that famous in Chinese barbecue. You can leave it out and it won't affect the taste.

Serves: 8

Thai Pork & Bananas

Thai Pork & Bananas

Before you say "eeeew! pork & bananas?".... know that everyone says that! However, once they taste this magnificent dish, they'll be begging you for the recipe. This is one of my Signature Dishes that I'm very proud of & love to eat. The pork is unbelievably tender, the sauce is wonderfully tasty & creamy and the bananas add just a bit of sweetness.

Serve this on a bed of Jasmine Rice, which adds a slightly nutty flavor to the mix. Believe me, you'll be making this dish for years to come. It also freezes beautifully!

Serves: 6 to 8

Madras Curry Stew

Madras Curry Stew

Madras curry is a fairly hot blend of herbs & spices that originated in southern India. While you can create your own Madras curry spice blend & sauce to cook with, this version is made with a delicious organic premade sauce that cuts your cooking time down to a minimum. Best served warm, not hot, on a bed of Jasmine Rice & accompanied by heated Naan bread smeared with my Peach Apricot Ginger Spread, making a spectacular meal!

Serves: 4

Pho Ga

Pho Ga

Pho (pronounced "Fuh") is a hearty, traditional Vietnamese noodle soup originally made with beef. Pho Ga is the version made with chicken. You can also use turkey, which is a great way to use up some leftovers after Thanksgiving. No matter how you make it, it's absolutely delicious!

Yummy when served with heated Naan bread (see Tip# 2) & my Peach Apricot Ginger Spread (see recipe in Bakery, Breads & Spreads category).

Serves: 2 to 4

Vegetarian Stir-fry

Vegetarian Stir-fry

A healthy recipe for #MeatlessMonday or #FoodieFryday... this is one of those dishes that's extremely versatile, easy to put together & cooks up in a flash! These are the ingredients I use most often, however you can replace any of the vegetables with another you like or happen to have in the frig that needs to be used up (see Tip# 5). Keep in mind that certain vegetables take longer than others to cook.

Serves: 2

Shiitake Ginger Chicken

Shiitake Ginger Chicken

Earthy & creamy is the best way to describe this delectable meal. You can prepare everything in advance, cover & refrigerate, then cook it up in no time at all. In my house there's never any leftovers... what does that tell you?!

Serves: 2 to 3
