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

New Mexico Chili

Just about everyone who has created their own chili recipe, fusses over it, tweaks it over many years & keeps it a secret. Mine is no different... I started creating this recipe in the mid 1970's & have changed it many times over the years. Now I'm going to share my Signature Chili Recipe with you... enjoy!

Serves: Approximately 10 to 12

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Pho (pronounced "Fuh") is a hearty, traditional Vietnamese noodle soup originally made with beef.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

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
