Horsey Sauce

Horsey Sauce

Everybody that's tasted this has always asked me to give them the recipe, but I've rarely given it out... now I'm sharing it with you! It's really a very simply combo of ingredients, but it really adds that great flavorful punch to burgers & other grilled sandwiches.

Serves: 2

Homemade Curry Powder

Homemade Curry Powder

Curry powder is actually a blend of up to 20 spices, herbs & seeds. Widely used in Indian cooking, authentic Indian curry powder is freshly ground each day & will vary dramatically depending on the region & the cook. This is my original curry powder recipe. Easy to make & tastes extremely better than the commercial curry powder you buy in the supermarket. Use in any recipe that calls for curry powder.

Yield: a little over 1 cup

Green Greens Salad with Basil Ranch Dressing

Green Greens Salad with Basil Ranch Dressing

I created this salad in the mid 1970's for an "Ecology Themed" pot luck dinner. Over the years it has evolved to incorporate more modern & healthful ingredients and has become my Signature Salad Dish. It's an especially fun salad for St. Patrick's Day & Earth Day.

Creamy Carrot Soup

Creamy Carrot Soup

This is one of my favorite soups, especially in the Fall & Winter months! Not only are all the ingredients healthy for you on so many levels, but it's very creamy, so delicious & easy to make. I love to serve this with warmed up, crusty, multigrain rolls & butter.

Serves: 3 to 4 as a light meal or 4 to 6 as a starter

Za'atar Chicken & Pasta Salad

Za’atar Chicken & Pasta Salad

Za'atar is a spice blend found in many Middle Eastern dishes & is uniquely earthy, savory & extremely aromatic. This dish I created is very popular at my house. I mostly serve it in the spring, summer & early fall months, as it is at it's best when served barely warm or at room temperature.

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

Healthy Chicken Salad

This recipe has a lot of ingredients, but comes together quickly & makes a great summertime meal. This also makes 4 to 5 delicious chicken salad sandwiches on your favorite bread. Whenever possible use organic ingredients.

Apricot Glazed Chicken

Apricot Glazed Chicken

It's hard to pick a favorite recipe in a category, but because I make this more often than any other chicken dish & I actually get cravings for it, I'll have to say this is my favorite. I almost always pair this chicken with Jasmine Rice (see recipe in Rice & Grains category) & a vegetable or a side salad. There's something about the combination of the tangy chicken along with the nutty flavor of the Jasmine Rice that always gets my mouth watering!

Serves: 3 to 4
